What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game becomes challenging quickly. Units are selected by tapping and double-tapping the screen, which can be tricky on small screens but is made easier by the fact that you can zoom in and out.

Violence

Players defend against waves of oncoming raiders on foot and in vehicles using gun turrets, mortars, lasers, cannons, and flame-throwers. Combat is a central theme but there's no graphic violence. The narrative describes other soldiers being killed.

QUALITY
 

TOWER RAIDERS 2 GOLD's generic graphics thankfully don't interfere with its top-notch gameplay, which is both complex and challenging. Each of the game's 24 levels offers only a limited number of spaces to place defensive units, so players must think strategically and effectively exploit each tower's strengths. There are also hero towers that grant bonuses like extra resources or the ability to call an airstrike. Selecting units can be tricky on smaller-screened devices but a zoom feature takes away some of the awkwardness.
