geoDefense Mango update adds Live tiles and more

geoDefense Lead

geoDefense Swarm is out now and doing quite well, if reader comments and my own enjoyment are any indication. But the original geoDefense, which also happened to be the first good tower defense game on Xbox Live for Windows Phone, is still loved by many. As such, Critical Thought Games recently released an update to make geoDefense even better for current and future consumers.

geoDefense version 1.4 release notes:

  • 60fps on devices that support it  (previous cap was 30fps)
  • Live Tile (pin the game tile to the home screen, will flip to show progress)
  • Live Secondary Tile (hold down on level in list and it'll make a quick-jump live tile on home screen)
  • Supports Fast Application Switching
  • Fixed a bug with the targeting logic of locked laser towers (This was a big deal on some levels.)

Mango features are the standout additions. Many of us swear by Fast App Switching, so it’s great to see another popular Live game add that support. If only they would all follow suit (*cough, Plants vs. Zombies, cough*). Can’t go wrong with Live Tiles, either.

geoDefense is an easy-to-learn and addictive tower defense game. See our full review for details. The game costs $2.99 and there is a free trial. Get it here on the Marketplace.

Great news! But I just don't get why others don't update their app, it's just so easy. PvZ is such a great game but really suffers from being not mango.

Finally.  I really want all of the launch titles to get Mango VAS support.  PvZ is one of those games that needs it BADLY!!!!

this is awesome news. this literraly breathes more life into the game. im actually considering to purchase it now :P

That Samsung focus has seen its fair amount of time. That's what mine looked like. I miss it alot along with the native feature to raise the volume and wake up from sleep to camera. :( hope the fix for the lumia 900 comes soon.
