FlashMush Game Review: Top Defense

Link: Top Defense
Developer: GamingCar
Genre: Defense/Shooter
Kongregate Rating: 3.99/5
FlashMush Rating: 8/10

Top Defense is an interesting game as they try to take a style and put a new twist on it. Basically it's a top down shooter where the enemies follow a path sort of similar to a tower defense game. You then shoot the enemies with a variety of weapons, some of which essentially make "towers" to help you in the levels. It's actually a pretty cool idea and I think it works very well.

What works very well also is the different weapons. You start out with a single cannon which is just a one shot gun. You can then get other weapons such as a large area bomb, things that slow enemies, lower their armor, etc. The variety there is nice. The graphics in Top Defense are also very nice and very polished, no complaints there.

My only complaints would be the pace of the game and the usefulness of some of the weapons. The pace of the game I feel is kind of slow. This problem is pretty minor though. However, what really annoys me in games is where you  have a certain weapon that is only really useful against one type of an enemy. So annoying to waste energy buying the gun and then time using it when it's just going to help you destroy this one type of enemy.
