Bloons TD 5 by Ninja Kiwi is the latest release in the popular flash/mobile series of tower defense games, a franchise engineered specifically to be accessible to just about any gamer. TD5 is no different as it’s easy and fun, but also plenty deep for hardcore tower defense fanatics. We have recently created a list of best tower defense games but the list is only for iOS users.
If you’ve never played a classic game tower defense before, that kind of go well. To build towers that attack enemies that try to make your way from one side of the screen to another on a track usually windy. As more and more, the enemies increase in number and become stronger – forcing strategically placing towers with the money you earn by defeating enemies. Bloons Tower Defense 5 for iPhone and iPad is no different.
From regular dart-chucking monkeys to eight-way towers to snipers, there are many ways to take out the onslaught of balloons that make every track playable multiple times. And with multiple difficulties to master and a bank of cash to manage while upgrading and unlocking new towers, it’s hardly a walk in the park on the easiest setting.
There is nothing revolutionary about this game exactly as it is very similar to other titles in the tower defense. If you’ve never played a TD game before, you may feel a bit lost for Bloons TD 5 does not come with a tutorial , but do not worry too much. It’s pretty simple to understand, especially since the levels start easy at first.
At each level, the balloons are moved down the track from one end of the scale to the other end. Players must strategically place monkeys are armed with darts to shoot the balloons. Each time a ball is stuck, players earn cash that can be spent on more improvements and monkeys.
The game features over 20 different maps to play and each has three different difficulty levels. Along with traditional levels, there is also an endless horde mode as well as a way to encourage limited box set. Bloons TD 5 also has 10 special missions and 150 random missions for players to complete. Regardless of the mode, players will have eighteen different mono towers to build and there are special agents that can be bought on the way to the currency in the game to help in the more difficult levels.
The balloons that are directed are, of course, not the normal course of balloons mill. That would be too easy. They begin quite safe and easy to defeat, a single dart at balloon. It is when different colored balloons begin appearing, each concealing another balloon color, you have to worry. Then, to make things even more interesting is that some balloons are camouflaged and can only be seen by (at least initially) by Ninja Monkeys.
The enemies in the game are made of nothing more intimidating than wave after wave of balloons, but they come in many different flavors like their units. Some travel faster than others along the sinuous lines of play, while others exploit even more balloons. Even more humiliating is the giant balloons that require a hike of almost all units, and lead balloons that will make you wish you had invested in more guns before.
Defeating a map that the currency in the game and chips, which can be used to adjust the game settings or buy special agents wins. These agents are super-units that can help you get over the hump if you’re stuck on a map, but are an optional complication may just want to ignore. You can also buy tokens or coins with purchase within the app, but there is no pressure or need to do.
Bloons TD 5 is a fantastic game that will last a very long time players. There are many clues to win and even more missions to complete, when you’re done. It’s the kind of game that you’ll play for a minute and then looking at the clock (I’m assuming people still have those), to find that half an hour has passed.
The most important, for me, the appearance of this game is the multiplayer mode that was added just a few weeks ago. Co-Op mode is perfect to play with a friend (in a private game) or completely unknown. Nothing is quite fast in finding a team player randomly and through shared resources you have (money and lives), have to work together for the best result!
