The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Controls are intuitive and easy to master. Players drag icons representing different towers onto the screen to place them, and tap to sell or upgrade each unit. Each stage offers Easy, Medium, and Hard difficulty.


Players use gun turrets, cannons, missiles, lightning towers, and flamethrowers to defeat waves of enemy vehicles and soldiers. Damage is shown by a decreasing health meter, and enemies groan, fall over, and disappear when defeated without blood or gore.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fieldrunners HD is a high-definition makeover of the popular mobile tower defense game Fieldrunners, where players strategically place gun turrets to stop waves of enemies from advancing toward home base. While there is a lot of combat, it's bloodless. This app was reviewed on a Motorola Milestone Android handset. There are also versions of the app for the iPhone and iPad.

Is it any good?

FIELDRUNNERS HD's tight gameplay and straightforward controls put it among the top tier of tower defense games. The goal of each stage is simple: Survive 100 waves of enemies without letting too many of them through your defenses; 100 waves is manageable and challenging without becoming tedious. Classic mode gives players four different gun turrets to place, and Extended mode offers six towers. Finally, there's Endless mode for people who simply want to see how long they can last. Three levels of difficulty, unlockable stages, and in-game achievements round out a package that's sure to please tower defense fans.
