mdtitle.jpgIf you're looking for a fresh spin on the crowded Tower Defense genre, Taito Corporation's Mikado Defenders may be exactly what you're looking for.

In this game, you'll be protecting your castle against wave after wave of demons. In the time that I spent with the game, I found that there was a surprising amount of depth in the game mechanics. Players can:

  • Fortify their castles
  • "Call" on Guardian Spirits in a time of desperation
  • Use Samurai Commanders
  • and the list goes on...

Again, the premise is simple; protect your castle at all costs by placing your troops on designated spots on the map. You can choose to deploy archers, soldiers and many other units. It's even possible to upgrade your existing units as long as you have the points.

Other pluses I noticed about this game included: an easy pickup and suspend feature that allows you to stop and continue your games exactly where you last left off and the ability to play your own music while playing.

All in all, Mikado Defenders enters an already crowded genre but brings to the table some very unique elements. I enjoyed the game and would recommend it to anybody who enjoys Tower Defense games...the beautiful Japanese art is just extra.
