Defenders, a fun tower defense game for iOS, has just received an update adding a brand new “Survival” game mode. You can pick up the recently updated app for $4.99 on the App Store, and it’s optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Strictly speaking, Defenders is a “tower defense meets collectable card game,” according to developer NIVAL. In the app, gamers partake in a classic tower defense mode of gameplay, but towers, spells, and traps are all cards which must be collected and “played” in order for users to succeed. “Earning random sets of cards after each battle allows each player to create unique and exciting strategies!,” NIVAL explains.
The developer continues:
Freeze, burn, poison, explode and slash countless enemies attempting to stop you from gathering artifacts (sic) from the old kingdom. Choose your cards carefully and play them strategically - there will be heavy resistance along the way. Battle everything from small mutated fungi to powerful giant goblins and nagas!
In version 1.3 of the game, however, Defenders has been further improved through the addition of a brand new Survival level. There’s also enhanced social integration, too, with gamers being offered rewards when achievements shared to Facebook are viewed by friends.
Concerning the survival level, NIVAL adds:
The goal is to stay alive as long as you can, fighting off endless hordes of enemies. After several waves you’ll get a reward, the longer you stay alive - the more your reward will be! You’ll receive your prize when you finally concede. This level has its own leaderboard.
You can download the updated Defenders now for $4.99 on the App Store, and the game – which also includes in-app purchases – is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
