Tink Magician Original is a tower defense game from the Windows Phone Store. While most tower defense games rely on your skills at strategy in placing armaments along your enemy's path, Tink Magician relies on your ability to cast spells to defeat your enemies and defend your position.
The multi-level Windows Phone game has over thirty maps to defend, plenty of bosses to battle and a nice range of spells to cast. There are seven heroes to control and RPG features to improve their magical abilities as they advance in experience. We took a look at Tink Magician some time ago and found it to be an entertaining game and it closes out the week as today's AdDuplex HERO App.
The HERO Apps program is a promotional campaign for Windows Phone and Windows developers on the AdDuplex Network and partners AdDuplex with myAppFree, AppDeals, PluralSight and Windows Central to deliver a host of benefits to the top apps and games each month. Our role in the HERO App campaign is to offer a little exposure to these titles by sharing them with you, our readers.
Tink Magician Original is a fantasy styled tower defense game where you play the role of a Tink Magician, who must defend the kingdom from the Demon Lord and his evil minions. The gaming levels are spread out across a map of the kingdom with over thirty areas to protect.
The game includes over 100 monsters to defeat along with 15 bosses and 10 super bosses to battle. Seven Tink Magicians are available to join in on the fight, with each being progressively unlocked as you move through the game. Each magician has abilities that can be upgraded as they gain experience and earn a little cash while blasting the monsters into dust.
Defending your position can be tiring in that Tink Magician Original is a very active tower defense game. With most tower defense games, you strategically place armaments along your enemy's path and casually manage the battlefield. With Tink Magician, you are actively swiping at the screen to cast spells against your foes and alternating spells for effect.
You have seven spell categories that include physic, fire, roots, water, thunder, ice and chaotic with each having a unique effect. For example, if you have a fast moving monster you would use the root spell to slow them down (it encases them in a bundle of roots) and then use your fire spell to inflict damage.
Tink Magician Original is an intense, fast-paced tower defense game. Missing a swipe to cast a spell easily gives your enemy a slight advantage that may be too difficult to overcome. Overall, I found Tink Magician Original to be a fun Windows Phone game to pass the time with and in revisiting the game, my opinion hasn't wavered.
The Windows Phone game pulls down a 4.5 Star rating in the Store, which is about right for Tink Magician Original. It is a free, ad-supported title and if you try Tink Magician Original let us know what you think in the comments below.
