"A tower defense-like game over 3D OpenGL-graphics and hexagonal field"

Reviewed by / May 05, 2011

HexDefense is a Tower Defense-like game: you have to avoid your enemies from reaching your headquarters by placing towers to shoot them down.

As the game progresses, larger bunch of enemy units will try to reach your place. The only way to avoid them is to place more and more robot towers in front of them. And how do you do that? By using the points you win for killing each enemy unit. You will have to re-invest those points in buying more towers if you don’t want your enemies to break your defenses. Actually you really need to do that if you want to survive through the different levels and stages. Since enemies are coming from everywhere you will need to use different resources to stop them.

HexDefense fields reminds sometimes Pacman since they’re hexagonal mazes, what makes even tougher place your towers properly to kill all your enemies. There are four types of tower and seven types of creeps with special powers. A good point is the Auto-saves game if you press home or receive a call. Thanks to its simple graphics and interface it’s fast and we haven't noticed lag problems. However, the interface is a bit special, that’s it, asteroids-like, black background and different neon-color. The stereo sounds and the music are also good and reminds us the old classic game. This paid version includes 17 package levels for 1.49$, what makes it one of the cheapest paid tower defense game in the market. But if you want to give it a try first, there’s free version including 3 levels.

HexDefense has been developed by Gotow.net, an emerging game developer company which only has launched the free and the paid version of HexDefense, but with remarkably success.

HexDefense is another tower defense game that’s both addictive and challenging. If you like classic games’ interfaces with particle effects, 3D graphics and hexagonal mazes, you should give it a try.

Developer's original description available here
★★ Featured on the front page of the Android Market! ★★

** HexDefense was designed to show off the outrageously powerful graphics chipsets in newer Android phones. If you have an older Android phone, download the free version and make sure it runs on your phone before buying the full version! You can lower the graphics quality by pressing the menu button from the app's home screen and unchecking "Intense Graphics" in the settings. **

Navigate thirty-five challenging levels, building and upgrading towers to create mazes that leave enemy creeps marching to their death! With explosive OpenGL-based graphics and 3D stereo sound, HexDefense brings the arcade intensity of tower defense to Android like never before. Watch creeps explode and rockets fly across the hexagonal playing field as you defend your home tile against wave after wave of attackers. The game is fast and intense–easy to play, but very tough to master!

FEATURES:
- Classic 'Open Field' Tower Defense Gameplay
- Stunning Graphics, Particle Effects and Animations
- Fast, Arcade Action
- 35 Unique Levels, Each with it's Own Challenges

- Easy to Play, Very Tough to Master!

★★ Be sure to check out levels 20-35, which feature creep teleporters and the lightning tower! ★★

    I am so frustrated with this app. Any solutions would be appreciated. I installed the free version and there were a few glitches, like the game 'stopped working" and it reset to the first level. my install will not let me choose levels I want to play. My husband has the free version and he can do this once a level is unlocked. So I purchased the full app hoping it would resolve but I still cannot

    Back to the basics here! A simple and intuitive game that will have you playing it for 30 minutes before you even know it.

    Whenever I try to resume a game it locks up. Otherwise I'd give it four stars.

    Bought this game 2 years ago, used to be fun. Now it's absolute garbage.
