Armored II is, as it name implies, a defense game. This means that you should choose carefully your units and place them on a map to prevent enemies to cross the map and reduce your life meter. Defense games used to be about fantasy-related or future hi-tech themes, but such craze gave up to the releasing of a tower defense game related to whatever you can imagine. This Armored II is about WWII, and we have bunkers and tanks instead of any other stuff.
Every enemy unit has its own characteristics, as have yours, so you have to place your units accordingly and upgrade them wisely when you earn extra credits. What makes the difference is that Armored II is extremely well designed, graphics have a high resolution and three zoom levels (quite useful to understand what's happening on a map bigger than your screen) and gameplay is rather better than many other defense-like games where stages are either too easy or difficult to advance without buying upgrades through an in-app purchase. Oh, there's an in-app purchase of course in case you want to advance faster, but game's free otherwise whenever you don't waste your money. If you came to this paid version instead, know that it comes with a couple of additional maps and helps its developer to come along with Armored III or whatever he has on mind.
Nice additions are the testing ground -a practice mode, the possibility to order bombers to lay waste somewhere or the fact that some towers can't fire when their target is too close to them.
On the other hand, we know this review comes late, because all these mentioned perks can't avoid the fact that at this time it's somehow an outdated game. It's still a great and complex defense game and every defense gamer will enjoy it, but overall, once you play it you'll have to choose whether to being addicted to it or look for more modern defense games elsewhere.
