A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The game has 10 difficulty levels, and even the lower settings offer quite a challenge, because enemy waves can come from different directions and there's no preview of what enemy types are coming up next. The drag-and-drop interface used to place towers, upgrade them, and sell them is intuitive and clear.


Combat is a central theme; however, there is no graphic violence. Players use machine guns, anti-aircraft guns, and mortars to combat waves of tanks, helicopters, and marching robots.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Robo Defense is a military-themed tower defense game in which players strategically place guns and mortars on the battlefield to demolish waves of enemy robots. There's no graphic violence, and destroyed enemies simply disappear. This app was reviewed on the Motorola Milestone headset.

Is it any good?

ROBO DEFENSE is nothing special to look at, but underneath its generic military theme there's a fast-paced and very challenging tower defense game. The game has five maps with 100 stages each, including a futuristic "VR Training" mode that can be customized a virtually infinite number of ways. There are only three basic weapons at the player's disposal (machine gun, mortar, and a tower that slows down nearby enemies), but these can be upgraded in between stages using points earned by finishing maps. The ability to customize and "level up" weapons is a unique touch that players will need if they want to master the game's 10 difficulty levels.
