Tower Defense: Lost Earth is Com2Us’ official foray into the tower defense genre. It doesn’t do too much to really innovate on the genre, but it’s highly polished and really well done, with solid art, gameplay, level design, and sound. And yes, Com2Us has literally trademarked the term “tower defense” just like that. I’m surprised it took so long for such a thing to happen. Either way, it’s a solid title that made the transition to Android devices fairly well.
The simple set up is that the Earth’s resources have been depleted, and you’re part of a fleet seeking out a new Class-M planet for humanity to inhabit. Unfortunately, the monstrous natives of the planet are none too pleased with your presence. There’s a good variety of towers and enemies and a surprising amount of strategy involved. Too often the enemies in these games exist with few differences and mostly provide visual variety, but here there was a good amount of thought put into it, and there’s always a best strategy for each level.
