Is It Any Good?

Tower defense games have been around for a while, but Tesla Wars manages to make the game play feel new. Hurling bolts of lightning at your enemies from the game's central Tesla coil is entertaining and works smoothly with the iPhone and  iPad's touch interface. Tesla Wars eschews the usual strategy elements that are common in these sorts of games, focusing instead solely on the action -- and letting you buy a series of upgrades that make your tower even stronger. It's violent, but its a cartoon violence. And, admittedly, it's repetitive, but if the game play hooks you, it can chew up several hours of your time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
