    "One of the most challenging tower defense games than you can play. I played in 2009 for the first time, on PC. Then I tried the mobile version that is as good as the original. Although it's older than some of the competitors is still the king of the genre so I recommend it a lot if you're looking for a good game that doesn't require Internet connection. "

    "It doesn't get better than this. I was waiting, and waiting for the next version of P vs Z and we finally got it! This game solves all the previous bugs from the original version and adds a bunch of features that I had no clue I wanted or needed. It's still the same enjoying gameplay, but with a lot more twists. No need to download another tower defense game for a while!"

Did you know that the tower defense game genre is generally considered to be based on the game-changing release of Atari Games, Rampart? Rampart, which was released as an arcade game in 1990, is widely accepted as the tower defense game that popularized the genre. It combined features of the shoot 'em up and puzzle games instantly became a hit. In the game, players must build and repair towers to defend their territories against passing ships or to destroy enemy towers. Because of its popularity, it was then ported to different gaming platforms like SNES, Sega Master System, Lynx, PC, Mac, Commodore 64, and Amiga. In recent times, the game was so influential it was included in the Midway Arcade Treasures that can be played on GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PS portable. It was also included in the Midway Arcade Origins that can be played on PS3 and Xbox 360. Tower defense games enjoyed a boom in 2007, when Desktop Tower Defense won an Independent Games Festival award, leading to a stream of tower defense releases. In 2008, PixelJunk Monsters was released, along with Defense Grid: The Awakening and Savage Moon. It also led to the diversification of tower defense games, especially with the arrival of games like Plant vs Zombies and Infinite Wars

Haven't found it necessary to make any purchases yet but am considering one or two different things which would allow me to level up quicker.
