TapDefense Strategy & Tips

Written iPhone Game App Review

TapDefense is currently the most popular free-to-download game on the App Store. If you’re having trouble finishing all the levels or want to beat the higher difficulties, here are some tips to get you going:

Conserve Gold

  • Build the bare minimum of towers that you need to complete each level.
  • Save as much as you can in the early stages, to increase the effect of compounding interest.

Spend Halo’s Wisely:

  • Spend you “halo’s” wisely. Priority should always go to upgrading your interest rate before upgrading/researching new towers.
  • Improving your interest rate several times over the course of the game will greatly increase your end-game gold.
  • More gold = more options/upgrades/towers

Tower Strategy:

  • Use ice and water towers liberally, especially in your “kill zone”.
  • Upgrade your towers that cover multiple enemy paths/zones first
  • Fully upgrade your ice/water towers later in the game, you can slow enemies down by 90%.
  • Utilize arrow/magic towers, they have a long range and can be upgraded so that they are effective even from the fringes of the map.
  • Diversify. Don’t build just bomb towers or just arrows. In the later stages of the game your opponents will have resistances to certain tower types.
  • If you have lots of gold, consider placing a couple storm towers near the gates of hell. These will immediately take off a percentage of the enemies total hit points
  • Don’t sell towers..it’s not necessary and it will lose you gold. Concentrate on strategic tower placement from the beginning of the game.

Also, the difficulty of the game tends to take a notch up around level 30 so conserve your gold as much as you can before that point and shore up your defenses on level 28-29.
