Synaptic Wave, a Ukrainian game development company decided to offer Tower Siege for free for a limited amount of time. Synaptic Wave pointed us to the game play video trailer above for their extremely similar game called Tesla Wars because they don’t have one for Tower Siege. We have played both Tower Siege and Tesla Wars each to the 10th level and they are both identical so far, except Tower Siege is free for the time being.
Both games are a twist on the tower defense genre without the strategy but require much more eye hand coordination. You must direct Tesla type electrical energy strikes towards black stick figures attacking both your power tower and the fence. You earn points for how many you kill and taking no mercy on the injured stick figures crawling away from your attacks.

Brazilian based game Studio Monster Juice released their first original mobile game for the US market called The World vs Danilo Gentili, a tower defense strategy game for the IPhone, IPad and IPod Touch requiring 4.3 iOS or later. The game features a real life Brazilian comic named Danilo Gentili whose kind of humor upsets many people. The game takes place in comedy club where you must defend Danilo from people who want to hurt him because they dislike his humor so much. You direct clones of Danilo to strategic positions in the comedy club to kill the patrons rushing the stage. Monster Juice should add a game tutorial and improve the English in the game because it’s confusing and hard to read on the IPhone screen. Consumers can play a few levels and then pay $0.99 to access 60 levels. We posted the only trailer available above but be aware that its not in English.
