The Tower defense genre for a long time eats its own tail. The original concept of the mobile genre is completely exhausted by mobile developers. Subsequent similar cloned names appear and disappear. Even the most well-known with a genuine dose of humor Plants Vs Zombies ultimately can be monotonous and prospects it is not expected. That would not have added to it, the essence remains the same.

I admit that Steampunk Tower, I was treated with great suspicion. Average graphics, which immediately catches the eye, and exploited to the limit of possibility (in the style of Tower Defence), which is representative describes the game production, does not inspire optimism.
The Intro to the game
Steampunk Tower introduces us to a climate map, while the speakers played papadema easy to the ear music. A screen with a map — is our future command center. This could open a tech tree, the encyclopedia of units and missions, or places that we will soon have to use relatively often.
Already the first moments on the battlefield is staggering. Developers of Steampunk Tower refused extremely popular isometric representation of the game. Instead, we get “profile” view, which is irreversibly linked with the classical two-dimensional platformer. This decision is at first sight strange, in a few moments was a great feature.
Steampunk Tower presents two categories of units that will attack the Bastion of the player — surface and air. This gives you only four ways to attack (in the left and right sides). A centrally located tower, which stubbornly going force of the enemy, has a strictly limited number of firing positions for defense. This number eventually increases slightly, but not more than a few cars on each side. All the art of defence is the knowledge of the opponents, the weapons and speed of decisions.
Steampunk Tower is a tower defense where near good location of the units is taken into account in the decision-making speed and agility of the fingers. During the game we will be forced to frequently change the position of the defence machinery, to constantly recharge the weapon (this must be done manually) and to deal with the need to change defense strategy, depending on the type of units against our tower computer opponent.
A game made by DreamGate Studio, is a solid and very strong products. Thanks to the user view of the battlefield, the dynamic gameplay, well thought-out technical tree and several other less important, but very well thought out elements, Steampunk Tower ensures fun at a high level.
