“Nova Defence” is an iPhone game developed by EMOBI GAMES JOINT STOCK COMPANY. If you like your tower defense games with just a dash of science fiction, then this exciting mobile game is most definitely for you!
I’ll be the first to admit that TD games aren’t exactly my favorite mobile game genre. That being said, I was immediately taken with the epic sci-fi score and the excellent graphics. I could have used a smidge more in terms of world building, but the setting of this game is fairly well explained.
This campaign is suitably epic by mobile gaming standards, with the devs suggesting that the entire game will take about 20 hours to complete. One feature I really liked here was the “encyclopedia” section, which includes a visual reference to all of the enemies and buildings in the game.
There are only two levels of difficulty – normal and hard. I would have liked to see an “easy” or an “extra hard” tossed in there for a bit more variety.
My only major complaint with this game is how long I had to wait for things to load. I waited nearly a full minute to play my first campaign. That being said, I found the tutorial to be nice and zippy, while still being comprehensive.
While Facebook connect is encouraged, it is not required to play this game. That’s great news for people who dislike linking every single game they’re playing on their phone to their Facebook feed.
Boasting 30 power abilities, 20 specialized tower upgrades, 50 different enemies, tons of achievements, and an excellent variety of game modes, Nova Defence is a real winner in my book. Even if you’re not a hardcore tower defense fan, there is a lot to like here.
“Nova Defence” is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
