A great majority of iPad owners use their device to play games. C’mon be honest. Me? I would say I balance game playing with reading magazines and my Bible and a few apps for doing work.

This post starts a series of articles on games I actually play on my iPad.

Toy Defense
I think I’m addicted to this game. Seriously. I grew up with toy soldiers, the really cheap ones and played with them all day long. I had a really wild imagination then (i guess even today) and I even used chess parts to play against my toy soldiers.

 

Toy Defense is basically what you  call a tower defense game and you setup toy soldiers on the grid and then the enemy attacks. There are upgrades to each soldier and you fight against enemy soldiers, tanks, planes and blimps. I started with the free version which gave me one complete level in the series of campaigns provided. The free version also gave me 6 levels of the next series. When I completed all of them, I had urge to continue playing it so I gave in and bought the expansion pack which cost me a whopping $.99. It was a tough decision but completely worth it. I gained access to the complete levels of the next campaign and another 6 levels of the third campaign. The game developers are good.

One great thing about the levels is that they contain between 8 and 24 sub levels. You really get a great bang for the buck with this game. The game does get a bit slow in some levels but the game has a fast forward button which quickens the pace of the game. It was a nice touch because sometimes I have to start from the beginning when resuming a campaign.

This may be a “guy’s” game I would not hesitate to recommend it to girls, I’ve actually seen one lady play with it. 😎
