Bloons TD 4

IMG 1545

Ok, so this shall be a game review of sorts… I really LOVE tower defense games, and bloons is about one of the best tower defense games i've come across. Its available online (there are 4 version already!) and on the iPhone too. EDIT: OK… as i was googling, i found out that Bloons TD 5 IS OUT ALREADY on the developer's site… not yet out on kongregate where i usually play my games though, no wonder i don't know about it… should be coming soon though… and badges yay!

Anyway, the objectives of tower defense games is to stop the bad guy from reaching the end of the path/map. In this case, its balloons that you have to stop. And its really cool cause there's all sorts of different balloons like lead balloons, camouflage bloons etc etc… There's even a M.O.A.B (Massive Ornary Air Blimp) and a B.F.B (Brutal Floating Behemoth) in the game… reading the funny comments at the end of each level is certainly a big part of the game experience… (ok, in TD5 they came up with yet another air blimp called Z.O.M.G… go figure)

There's a HUGE variety of towers to chose from… From dart throwing monkeys to glue spattering monkeys to monkeys on planes and monkeys doing magic… yes, the whole bloons game started from a puzzle with a monkey throwing darts to pop balloons so most  of the defense towers are monkeys wielding some kind of weapon. With a bunch of tower upgrade, including a unique level up to unlock tower upgrade system, bloons TD 4 is one of the most addictive TD games i've come across.

Not just that, they update frequently too… previously, there was a halloween theme where most of the monkeys got a scary make over… they did it this time for christmas too. New content (maps, challenges, and even towers) gives the game a lot of value for money. Even though i've finished all the regular levels, i've yet to complete any of the maps in the Extreme levels… ok, you need to pay extra for those level though, but they are really super HARD! Even with all the double cash upgrade etc, i still couldn’t get past the 1st of those levels!

Ok, some screenshots of the xmas theme:

The xmas theme sun gods (middle of the picture, shooting out the blue laser things) looks kinda… weird?

Bummer… i would have wrote more, but now i'm so enticed by bloons TD 5 that i don't feel like writing anything anymore… i've GOTTO play the game… now each tower has 2 ability paths to choose from OMG… like seriously! can't wait for the game to be out on kong but i'm still gonna play it on the devs site 1st… okays… can't hold it back any longer… maybe i'll try and put in more stuff in this post later or something… tata...
