Tower Madness

March 27, 2010

Tower Madness, if you don’t know, is an app for the iPod touch/iPhone.  Almost everyone I know has one of the aforementioned items, so I though I might do a post on an app and what I thought about it.

Tower Madness is a 3D tower defense game designed by Limbic Software.

First, the good stuff.

It’s pretty darn fun.  It must make me release a ton of “dopamine” because I like it quite a bit.  The idea is pretty original (seriously, who would have thought of killing aliens who are trying to abduct your sheep to make scarves for their Almighty Emperor? Definitely not me, I’m pretty brain-dead when it comes up with trying to think of creative stuff.) and the graphics are also pretty darn good for a five megabyte game.

The rail guns are by far my favorite guns in that game.  Rail guns are just awesome in general.  I mean, come on, who wouldn’t like a weapon that accelerates a projectile at Mach 7 and penetrates through something thick a hundred miles away? If we had that kind of firepower at our disposal that could be moved around, wars would definitely be a lot less messy.

The enemy’s route is adjustable.  You can place towers in the enemy’s way, adjusting the route that the enemy waves have to take.  You can make them take a really complicated zigzag route all around the map, which gives you more time to kill them.  Of course, this only applies to the maps which are open field.  The others do have set routes.

You can zoom in and zoom out, which really helps seeing how ugly the aliens are and how awesome your guns look up close.

The bad stuff.

It’s really battery draining.  It drains your battery at least five times faster than if you’re listening to music or something.  This is probably due to the fact that it’s a 3D game.

Supposedly, you can rotate as well as zoom in and out because it’s 3D.  I have not yet figured out how to do this yet (maybe it’s just because I’m dumb or something), which is kind of depressing because I want a better angle of my game.

Nothing else, really.

Right now, the full version is free on iTunes.  Free version means no ads (yay!).

Try it out!


  1. OMG today i played this game for like an hour. It’s so fun!!
    I beat the hard level and now I’m nervous to try the extreme level.

  2. I really like when people are expressing their opinion and thought. So I like the way you are writing
