Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jelly Defense is another entry in the crowded tower defense game genre that uses cute, jelly-based creatures as both its enemy soldiers and its weapons. The cartoon-like appearance of the game is potentially luring to children, especially young ones, but it's still a combat title at its core. There's no online gameplay, but users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, though participation is optional.
Is it any good?
JELLY DEFENSE is a perfectly serviceable entry in the tower defense genre, but it doesn't really add anything that other titles haven't already. The enemies and defenders are, admittedly, much cuter than in most other games of this ilk, but the gameplay is fairly basic: Waves of enemy troops come marching down the road and you attempt to stop them with a series of defensive weapons. The controls handle well, though, and the game's overall look is certainly eye-pleasing. It currently carries an introductory price of 99 cents, which is certainly fair, though we're not sure we'd pay more for the game and still feel as good about it.
