App of the Week: Radiant Defense
So when I found out that one of my favorite app developers made a tower defense set in the world of one of my favorite Android shooters it was peanut butter jelly time!
Let’s take a look at Radiant Defense.
If you never played Radiant, then you’re missing out on a charming Galaga-style shooter. In that world you play a lone pilot out to stop an alien invasion.
Gameplay is typical TD; you have a map, aliens move through the map, and you set up towers with weapons on them to kill the invaders. Radiant Defense introduces a fun combination of weapons and enemies to keep play interesting.
The graphics are extremely high-quality throwbacks to 8-bit classics. Just like Radiant, it’s charming.
There’s some grumblings about the fact that this game is a freemium app. I think this is a great way for developers to get their apps in play and to make money; you can download the app for free and enjoy it; but to get rid of ads and to upgrade weapons, you have to fork over a little cash.
