Jelly Defense is a tower defence game released by Infinite Dreams Inc.
“Join the Jelly forces now and lead them to glory in this uneven and fierce fight against the invaders! Use your tactical skills and wisdom to tip the scales of victory in your favor in order to save the Diploglobe and the Jelly nation from the agressors! That’s right, you are their only hope – the one they call the liberator, the true leader, the Jelly savior! You are the hero they deserve! Just look at these poor little creatures. They trust you, they believe in you, they rely on you. Can you refuse those big faithfull eyes (or eye)? You’re really their only hope!”
The application puts you in control of the Jelly Defense. This tower defence game has you fighting different coloured enemies, these come in Red and Blue. You are defending ten green gems, which the enemies will steal and run away with if they get the chance. If you lose all of the green gems it is game over.
You have three towers available Red, Blue and a Mixed Colour Tower. For example, if a Red enemy passes a Blue tower then it goes by unattacked as the Blue Tower will do nothing against it. Therefore, you need a good mix of towers in order to make a solid defense.
As you kill the enemy jellys gold coins are dropped. You need to tap of these before they disappear. As you collect these your resources build up and you can purchase new defenses and upgraded the existing defenses.
There are a few power ups along the way, but these generally do not do much damage or adds to your coins.
Some of the areas are very long with twenty or some waves merging into one another. Also having to collect the coins means you have to actively have to play the levels and then one wave from the end you are wiped out by a huge wave of attackers.
Controls are done by dragging the towers into set locations around the level, you can then tap of them and buttons will appear offering upgrade or sell. You need to hold you finger down on these icons for a second or so, so you should not upgrade or sell by accident, this is useful as you are often tapping on the coins that have landed nearby.
The graphics are good, and will make fans of the other Infinite Dreams Jelly game will know what they are getting. For more the in-game graphics lack a little in animation. The music I think will be a love / hate thing. I liked the music, but my son turned the volume down when he had a go.
On the upside:
- Well designed tower defence game.
- Cute Jelly characters.
- Mini Game bonus areas.
On the downside:
- Very repetitive.
- Not enough variety in towers / upgrades on offer.
- Coin collecting means you have to keep an eye on the game at all times.
Overall, this is a solid tower defence game. There is nothing really new here, but it will appeal to those who like a more active version of defence games. I personally like to lay down the defenses, play the wave and then set up for the next. With Jelly Defense waves merge into one another, so you get no rest bite. Well worth a look especially at only 69p.
