Here’s an idea that could breathe some life into the somnolent tower defense genre: head-to-head duels on a single iPad. I’ve seen this formulation a couple of times but never as confidently executed as it is by Stratosphere. Tower defense is generally such a dull exercise in optimization that being able to trash-talk an opponent face-to-face can only improve the experience.
Stratosphere launched on iOS a few months ago but developers Pixile Studios have just refreshed the game with new levels and new AIs. We haven’t reviewed a tower defense game since Fieldrunners 2 came out last year but I might just give this one a go.
There’s a new trailer for Stratosphere with details of the new added content after the jump.
