DemonDefence, can you keep Alice safe in this Windows Phone tower defense game?

DemonDefence

Tower defense games can be a fun way to pass the time on our Windows Phone. DemonDefence is a relatively new gaming title and hopes to join the crowd as an entertaining tower defense game.

The story line has a damsel in distress, that would be Alice, lost in a demon infested land. You are armed with snowmen, robots, scarecrows and characters who must defend Alice from wave after wave of monsters.

Graphics aren't too shabby, game play on par for the genre, and there are enough themes, levels and difficulty settings to keep things interesting. DemonDefence is available for Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices and is worth at least a peek.

DemonDefence's main menu offers options to mute the sound, view the help screens, play the game and a "free gems" button. I'm guessing that this is a way to get free gems to use in the gaming store but I keep getting a blank screen when I tap the button.

DemonDefence

You have three gaming themes with DemonDefence; Dark Forest, Ice World, and Outer Space... which is listed as "coming soon" so I'm not sure it should count just yet. Within each gaming theme you have ten, progressively unlocked levels of play. The further you progress, the paths you must defend get a little more complicated and the monster more aggressive.

DemonDefence

Before each level you are sent to the game's store where you can use gems collected during game play to upgrade your defensive characters or buy additional gems via in-app purchase.  The final steps before actually playing the game is to choose which defensive units you'll use and the difficulty level (easy, hard and hell).

Game play is not unlike any other tower defense game in the Windows Phone Store. Alice is positioned on one end of the path and monsters enter from the other. You tap along the path to pull up your defense options and eventually place defensive units to annihilate the monsters and protect Alice.

DemonDefence

Each level involves a series of waves (indicated at the top of the screen) and as you wipe out the monsters, you earn coins that can be used to upgrade your defensive unites. Each unit can be upgraded three times to boost its fire power or sold to give your cash flow a boost.

Defensive units fire automatically as monsters come into range and are not subject to being damaged by the monsters. Should one of the monsters survive your defensive gauntlet and reach Alice, you lose one life per monster who reaches her. Your life count is displayed beneath Alice and when it hits zero, the game's over.

Along with your wave count being displayed at the top of the screen, you also have your gem count, coin count, game speed control, a menu button that pauses the game and a pause button ( a little redundant).

DemonDefence

Monsters vary in speed, strength and number. Periodically a boss monster will appear that is rather tough to take out. Don't be shocked if the boss monsters make it to your last defensive post. DemonDefence has a nice variety of creatures who want to cause Alice harm that will keep you on your toes and prevents the game from getting too boring.

DemonDefence isn't a bad game and I like how you start each level with a decent coin count and a few defensive units already in place. It gives you a fighting chance as the levels becomes more challenging.  While tower defense games may not be everyone's cup of tea, DemonDefence isn't a bad option to consider if you are looking for a new game for your Windows Phone.

DemonDefence is a free game for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices that you can pick up here in the Windows Phone Store.

Never promise anything to anyone as you can not possibly know the future. Ppl are generally unreliable especially the staff at at&t

I love tower defense games and I'm always looking for new, quality new ones to play so thanks for the review. I was addicted to Arcane TD Free for a while there but couldnt finish it due it constantly crashing on me. Maybe it will perform better on my L925? who knows. Still patiently waiting for a WP PvZ2 announcement.

Bet a lot of ppl are seeing 1 new notification on wpc tile and hoping for Gdr2 & amber now available for download on at&t 920 & 820 Lumias....... Sorry its off topic guys I just couldn't resist

Never understood why games would be free on IOS and android, but yet you have to pay on windows phone. Angry birds come to mind and probably PVZ2..

Defense or defence can be spelled either way. Not a mistake. Defense is preferred in the US. Defence is preferred everywhere else.
