Square Enix tower defence? Just a fantasy, surely?
Crystal Defenders For iPhone : Taking a popular genre for iPhone games like tower defence and blending it with the art styles, job system and characters of Square Enix RPGs like Final Fantasy seems like a great match, and it generally is. Players of Crystal Defenders must protect a hoard of crystals against waves of varied fantasy enemies, all with different attributes and immunities, by placing your own army of warriors, black mages and the like along the path.
So far so familiar, but it’s improved by its wonderful graphics, which use 16-bit sprites that players of RPGs from the early to mid-Nineties will immediately be familiar with. They’re somewhat limited when it comes to animation but they’ve got bags of charm, regardless of whether you’re a fan of Square Enix or its games.
There are better tower defence games, but Final Fantasy fans will love this, and there’s plenty to like otherwise.
