Alien Creeps TD simply sums up itself by its title. It is a classic tower defense game with an alien invasion theme. And it places you at the helm to defend the earth in a lasting war while uncovering the true intension of the invaders.
Alien Creeps TD has the similar set up with many titles of this kind. In a battle you place different towers at the pre-set posts along the zigzagging invasion path(s) to kill enemy hordes halfway before they reach the other end claiming your lives. You have 20 lives to guard and if you lose them all you lose a battle.
It costs energy to place towers to the battlefield. You have a limited amount of them at the very first but can earn more by killing enemies when a battle is on. Wise use of your initial stipends will give a head start. That’s more of luck since you don’t know the exact types of forthcoming enemies beforehand. But the first waves of foes generally are the light land units seen in earlier levels. Moreover, you can get one or two tips every now and then about what you will deal with if you ever pay attention to the description of that level.
In Alien Creeps TD you have five types of towers to use. The Tesla tower is placed in the center of every battleground in default and is capable of vaporizing a large group of foes when it’s fully charged. It is powerful but with its long charge time it is best for emergency. You can’t place any more Tesla towers but have free control of the other four.
The Rocket is the most expensive dealing slow-rate but strong area-of-effect damage. The Laser is the medium type especially effective against enemies hid in shields. When the Barrack is placed, three soldiers come out blocking all but the flying units. And the Machine Gun works similar to soldiers from Barrack but can beat flying foes. Placing towers costs energy and upgrading them costs much more. But even you have earned a hefty mount of energy, you can upgrade towers in service only after you’ve upgraded them in the base.
You can expand the power of towers by upgrades in the base. Each tower can be leveled up through three stages and then evolved to an advanced, new type. Take the Laser for example. You can upgrade the MK I to MK III, increasing the power, range and other performances to their technical limits, and then evolve it to be a Quad Beam tower that allows multiple lasers to be fired at once. And this evolution also expand the side-abilities of the tower. Still talking about the Quad Beam tower, it can be equipped with infra-red sensors to reveal clocked enemies and capsules to emit corrosive gas by further upgrades.
Besides towers, you have several other resources including heroes, air strikes and reinforcements (two infantries) at disposal. Similar to the Tesla tower, a tough hero, armed with guns and grenades, shows up automatically in every battle. You can freely move him to the location where he is needed most. And you can train him in multiple aspects to make him fight with better equipment, greater rage and so on.
You will find more figures from his league like the pistol-wielding engineer specialized in boosting the fire rates of towers and the super Skybolt that flies and fires a chain gun. But to recruit these heroes costs real cash. And the price is not reasonable, for $10 (the price of the Skybolt) suffices to buy one fully-priced good game. Strong heroes aside, Alien Creeps TD is monetizes mainly via Coins instead of Diamonds, the premium currency that allows you to call in reinforcements & airstrikes. You need coins to upgrade all your units. You need them a lot but you earn a bit from every battle.
Alien Creeps TD has high-end graphics and frantic action battles. The fun and challenges immerse you in the war against aliens and make you crave for more, but its imbalanced earnings and costs of Coins entail a slow progression filled with grinding detours of replay and luring paid shortcuts aside.
