  • 30 Defense Levels
  • 3 Boss battles
  • 3 Survival Levels
  • Stunning 2D Art

Jetrats Defense is now also a universal app, although it still feels more at home on the iPad. While tower defense games are a dime a dozen, Jetrats Defense does offer enough to help it stand out from the crowd.

Jetrats Defense can get quite manic at times!

Jetrats Defense is a free, ad-supported title. The ads can be removed, however, via a $0.99 in-app purchase. There are also new levels and optional perks available for purchase.

While Jetrats Defense has plenty of competition, if you are a fan of the tower defense genre, it’s well worth picking. It’s free so what have you got to lose?
