Stick Tower Defense Games
The Fascinating World Of Stick Tower Defense Games
Tower Defense, when combined with stick figures–also a perennial favorite among gamers–the appeal becomes pretty much irresistible.It is easy enough to explain the appeal of stick games. Simple, easy to understand, and readily adaptable to a wide range of maneuvers, actions, and situations, stick figures are simple gaming elements that lend themselves well to a variety of playing situations.
Teelonians Clan War is also worth checking out, with its engrossing storyline revolving around the conflict between the invading Teutons and your team of Teelonians. This game offers even more options for configuring your troops and setting up your defenses, making for a pretty intense game.
One of the more popular tower defense games involving stick figures is Order Empire. An offshoot of the popular Stick War 1, this variation requires you to mount a defense against hordes of invading stick men, with archers and foot soldiers among them. The action can get pretty intense, with a host of inventive defense mechanisms and commands for staving off the attackers.
In Stick Tower Defense, the object is pretty much the same, although there are more options to purchase weapons upgrades for mines, cannons and bombs. There are also plenty of attack stages to deal with, and along with the great graphics and exciting gameplay, there is plenty to keep you occupied as you mount your defense.
Stick Figures In Tower Defense
But what about tower defense games? What makes them still so popular even with so many hundreds–maybe even thousands–of other games to choose from? Like the popularity of stick figures, much of the appeal of tower defense games is due to its inherent simplicity. In the most basic form of the game, the object is to prevent opponents from crossing a field, reaching a target, or accomplishing a goal. This is done by setting you towers from which you can mount a defense with one or more types of weapons.
Variety Of Weapons And Enemies
Beyond this basic premise, there is plenty of room for an exceedingly wide array of interesting variations. Some of the more advanced games feature some pretty formidable enemies, and the weapons with which you are equipped can be correspondingly impressive as well. Catapults are almost always featured, perhaps owing to their traditional role in tower defense systems of old. More recent innovations include cannons, rockets, and grenade launchers, and beyond that, pretty much anything goes.
Earn Points And Credits
Another common facet of tower defense games is the ability to earn points or credits based on the number of attackers that you can take out. In many games, these credits could then be used to purchase more powerful weapons, to set up new towers, or to bolster existing defenses. This results in an increasingly complex game that can be pretty engaging.
