Tower defense games are a dime a dozen these days, but EPIC WAR TD stands out for a few reasons. The app's randomly generated enemies mean no game is ever the same. You may face a relatively light armored wave or a brutally tough one, but you never know what's coming next -- something that makes you think on your feet. There are also copious levels and waves to keep even the expert player occupied for hours. And the enemies are visually distinctive, versus the often generic waves other tower defense games use. It's gory -- and definitely not something for young kids -- but it's a mature take on an old genre that manages to make a game style that was in danger of becoming dull exciting once again.
