But how is this game different from all the other td games out there and what makes it so special. There are six different upgradable towers, but the number is common in other tower defense games.

With both high and low terrain your mind has to be working at its best in order to manage whitstanding the attacks of the aliens. At times you will find yourself trapped with no additional space to place your towers, and a lot of cash and you could very well be losing the game, just because you haven’t bought the right towers, or didn’t place them where they should be. Strategy is a key element in the gameplay of the Nexus Tower Defense.
Other thing the game creators should be porud of is the amazing graphics and the graphics engine, which doesn’t lag even with more than twenty towers shooting with different animation at once. The very detailed high resolution graphics make the game enjoyable on both small screens and tablets, as they are up to 1080 x 720 native.
Another thing that makes the game unique is the interactive terrain, which enhances the gameplay experience. You will have the opportunity to build the path yourself, increasing the strategic elemnt of the game.
There is also an online highscore ranking, where you are able to compare your strategic mind with others. Another nice addition being the save progress option, which lets you save your game at any point, so you should not be worried if you have to stop in unexpectedly.
The game is available on Android 1,6 devices or higher, with the graphics engine supporting even older smartphones, so don’t worry if your phone isn’t that new – just check in the google play market, if your device is supported.
If you want more of the experience you could purchase the full version, where your strategy will be tested at its limits with more 10 challenging maps and 10 survival maps.
