Strategy fans can look forward to The Bot Squad: Puzzle Battles hitting the App Store and Google Play on October 16 2014. This new free-to-play strategy game from Ubisoft promises a mix of classic Puzzle and Tower Defense gameplay. Both genres have traditionally fared well on smartphones and tablets, but it is not often that they are combined
I must admit that Epic Defense caught me by surprise with how addictive it is. It is a pretty straight forward tower defense game but the random nature of the gem drops and the different types of towers make for an challenging experience. There are plenty of free ways to generate coins but it just never seems to be enough. Still for a free game you can’t go wrong with this one.
Gameplay: Very addictive but can become time consuming and a bit of a grind.
Graphics: Colorful and detailed even on small screens.
Sound: Nothing amazing here but not bad overall
