Best Tower Defense game?

I've been playing Fieldrunners quite a lot these days and really love it. It's awesome for a handheld and i heard its coming to steam aswell in the near future. A must buy for me cuz i've spent so much time on my psp playing this game xD.


I was wondering what other similar games are good? I've played defence grid but it didn't have that same charm as fieldrunners. Attack of the titans is good too. Any other games i should check out?

P.S i am looking for those kind of games only not dungeon defenders/OMD type games which essentially are TD but action TD games.

Thanks.

I assume you've already played Defense Grid?

I've heard some good things about Unstoppable Gorg, but I haven't played it yet.

If you own Warcraft 3 or Starcraft 2 you'll get the best possible Tower Defense games. Barring those there is always Defense Grid, Sol Survivor and Defenders of Ardania. For flash games there is Gemcraft (Best there is for TD Flash games) and Kingdom Rush is another excellent flash based TD.

Xeno Tactic and Xeno Tactic 2.

Free online flash games, and I enjoyed them.

They get really difficult by about level 4 or 5 though.

For my money you can't beat Defense Grid but Orcs Must Die!, Sanctum and Plants vs Zombies are all worth a go.

Two fun new ones I played for an hour free from bigfishgames are Island Defense and Garden Rescue.
Garden Rescue is true typical older fashion style play where there's a maze laid out and you put your defense on grassy areas along that path and have weapons for walking vs flying bugs similar to bloons.
Island Defense is pretty cool (but perhaps a bit more complicated) tweak to the same formula with it you have a hard time telling which path the enemy will take as you have a bunch of islands to put units on so the enemy has a lot of waterway paths to get to your tower to attack it. Also there are some tactical units like a tower that sets fire (Damage Over Time) to the ships so you want to place those early in the path(s) to hit the ships coming in to attack.
