BulkyPix’s Grave Defense HD Game Review

31 Oct

image

 

This game is one of the first tower defense game BulkyPix has published. The game has two gameplay modes- Campaign and Survival. If you like story mode, you can go along with Campaign mode.  For people who just want a fast game, they will choose Survival mode.

What I like about this game is that it provides an encyclopaedia for  the different towers, mutants, bonuses and ranks used in the game. If you are in doubt, you can tap on the question mark button to see more of this. It kind of helps you to see what kind of enemies you are up against.

image

There are a wide variety of towers in this game. The most frequently used tower is the mini gun. It costs $200 which costs the least among all the towers. I can easily buy this tower a few times in the game itself. The another tower I like to use is the Tesla coil. It sends out lightning volts to electrify the enemies.

The positions where you can place the towers are fairly fixed in this game. You just need to see where your towers can do the most damage before you tap on the area to put them. You can sell the towers away to change positions but it will incur some penalty in terms of the total cash you have. You will find that you get less money after selling them and you can only buy certain towers that are within your budget.

Once a mutant is killed, you need to pick up the $5 money coins. When the amount is large, the money is deposited directly into your account.

What I feel is missing from this game is when the mutants are killed, they died silently. There are no noises heard after killing them. Most of the time, you hear the sound of the gunfire and the specific sound that alerts you to collect the coins. The game however has some nice retro music when you exit from the game menu. You can easily follow the developers on Facebook and Twitter as there are such buttons in this game.

The game is a universal build and runs for iPhone and iPad. So, you only need to pay once to have it on both your iDevices.

Graphics: 3.6 /5
Sound/Music: 4 / 5
Fun: 4/5
Addictiveness: 5 / 5
Value for money: 5 / 5
Overall:  4 / 5

The game can be downloaded on iTunes for $2.99:

Check out this game on Halloween if you are stuck at home and have nowhere to go. It can certainly help you to kill some time for this Halloween.

BulkyPix Releases Android Hit – “GRave Defense HD” on iPad Halloween Monday

28 Oct

Enter video caption here

Take on the hoards of zombies and see how well you do against these Walking Dead

Screen_001_7681024_thumb1

San Francisco, CA, Paris France, October 28, 2011 – Don’t look now, but your iPad is about to become overrun by the undead! This coming Monday Bulkypix is releasing the hit Android game GRave Defense HD to the iPad! The company is working closely with the development team at Art of Bytes to give you iPad owners one spine-tingling good time with this tower defense game.

Screen_002_7681024_thumb3

The world has been ravaged by a nuclear world, and as a result, zombies have risen from their Gravess and are running amuck. As one of the few remaining humans to survive in this post-apocalyptic place, it’s your job to use tower upgrades and weapons to fend them off. Your job won’t be easy, though. Along with hordes of the undead, you’ll also have to contend with some of history’s most notorious monsters, including the vampire Dracula and the powerful Frankenstein!

Screen_003_7681024_thumb1

As you play through each stage of GRave Defense HD, you’ll use every resource manageable to fend off the zombie invasion, including fire, electricity, lasers and other unique weapons. You’ll fight your way across a number of imaginative locales, including the Amazon rain forest, the Bermuda Triangle and even outer space. With each passing stage, you’ll gain access to various towers, which you’ll need to put to proper use, as each new wave introduces new types of zombies to contend with.

Screen_004_7681024_thumb1

Screen_005_7681024_thumb3

The iPad version of GRave Defense HD will see a number of new features, including an all new survival mode, complete with more tower upgrades and an online ranking system, where you can compete against your friends. (You better be prepared, though – only the very best will reach the top of the in-game military ladder.) You’ll also notice great new gameplay features, including visible paths, earned income for each killed zombie and tower meters, so you can track their power and cool them off accordingly. You’ll also enjoy the iPad-specific in-battle heads up display, showing you everything that’s happening with ease.

Screen_006_7681024_thumb1

GRave Defense HD’s gameplay offers a number of options, including the ability to switch between levels and four difficulty settings, ranging from casual to the hardest of the hard, insane! And for those that are new to the game, a descriptive help section breaks down how everything works. You’ll also be able to see what you’re up against in updated animated briefings.

The game is out on iTunes! You can download it for $2.99 on iTunes.
