  • While playing around with the Mstar S700 handset, I also played some games on this device. Alien Creeps TD was one of them, a tower defense title that was launched in the summer of 2014 and it’s available for free in the Play Store.

    Coming from Outplay Entertainment, the game features 3 modes in every stage (Campaign, Veteran, Spec Ops) and obviously also offers some IAP action. You can place a series of towers in key points on the map, before the aliens attack and those towers include turrets, barracks with soldiers in the mix, laser towers and rocket launchers.

    There’s also a Tesla tower with limited shots and two extra powers, letting you call infantry and air strikes. These three extras are basically bonuses, that run out and have to be bought again. A good thing about Alien Creeps TD is that it allows you to put the action in fast forward, in order not to waste time while waiting for huge enemy waves to play out.

    A Hero unit is also available with upgrades included and speaking of which, the turrets can get upgrades of their own between missions. Sadly, aside from the first hero, all the other ones are quite expensive to unlock. You can play this game offline with no problem and upgrade your turret during missions, to make it more powerful.

    The base has around 20 lives, each one of them lost when an enemy unit crosses the entrance of the base. While level design isn’t very varied here, I have to admit that the aliens have an impressive variety, with many species and sub species being rendered in the game. The main currency here is a green bolt, that’s achieved by defeating enemies, with bonuses for calling waves in early.

    Future levels are unlocked by getting as many stars as possible in the earlier levels and that’s achieved by not losing lives. Some of the enemies fly and others have shields, so those are the ones you have to pay attention to and counter with lasers and rockets. Upgrades of your turrets (those in menus not in the game) take hours, but they can be sped up with the proper resources, by the way.

    Extra challenges are offered too, shorter missions with high difficulty, played mostly for coins. The game is quite fun, especially if you like tower defense titles and it has a lot going for it, maybe aside from the level design and little variations of turrets. We give it an 8.2 out of 10 and you can download it here.
