by Ian Black

Tower Defense games take a leap into the future with OpenGL-based graphics and 3D stereo sound at the tippity top of today’s fresh games. Next comes a multiplayer board game, and a new twist on the old game Snake.

HexDefense Free (Free)

Tower defense from the future! This hexagonal board features tower defense-style mazes but the OpenGL graphics and 3D stereo sound make the mayhem bigger, faster, brighter, and louder.

HexDefense features four types of towers, each with four possible upgrades. There are seven “creeps” leading the waves with four special-powered “boss creeps” to challenge your strategy and planning.

Blocks & Bombs Lite (Free)

Need to entertain a small group? Break out Blocks & Bombs. Capture as many adjacent blocks as you can but watch for those blocks that really hide bombs. This Lite version is free and supports two players. The full version supports up to four players and currently costs just 99 cents.

Dragons Trail (Free)

You need to grow your dragon tail. To do so you need to consume the green dots floating by, sliding your tail over the screen to eat them. Watch out for the red dots and other obstacles because they’ll kill you. Dragons Tail is a reincarnation of the original cell phone game Snake.
