    "Wow, talk about an obvious clone of desktop tower defense... Its like the same exact game, with space graphics instead."

    The game acknowledges that in the “help” section and thanks the author of that game.

    Didnt say they were ripping them off, its just that when making a clone youd think thered be some alterations beyond graphics, music, and the smallest details.

    The aliens health increases far too quickly for the small amount of money gained per kill to keep up.

    desktop tower defense is a ripoff too. it`s more of a genre (defense games). Btw, tennis games are just a ripoff of pong, and IAB is a ripoff of every other links site before it. boohoo.

    Lol at whoever said its a rip off of that other game. All tower defence is taken off warcraft 3 tower defence. Anyways, seems a bit too long to not have a save function.
    I got to lvl 4, needs unlockable turrets for each level. More enemies too. Quality adjustment

    Umm... It`s not a ripoff just because it`s a TD. This is specifically one because the towers and upgrades are exactly the same, as well as the creep waves. Seriously, no notable change in gameplay at all.

    Meh, it has better graphics.

    Easy way to beat this game on almost any level:
    Use the $5 towers to build a path, forcing all the creeps to go one way that lead to one or two specific "Kill zones" they must go through. Put in a couple of slowing (Freeze), or stopping (Sonic) towers in there to bunch them together and keep them in the kill zones as long as possible, then hit them with rockets that do splash damage.

    Upgrade the sonic/freeze/rocket turrets fairly often.

    Make sure to throw in a couple of air defence towers, usually in the very middle of the screen. Air creeps will fly right over your path, but the air towers are extremely powerful so you don`t need many. Keep em reasonably well upgraded though.

    Actually tower defence was on Starcraft first not warcraft 3 just so you know ;-)

    I know it`s a bit hypocritical of *me* especially to be saying this, but does every thread on IAB have to devolve into an argument?

    Beat mission 5 finally. Near the end all my long range high powered towers would forcus on the boss who was just way to strong. So I opened up a path and let them slide out fast so I could pummel the incoming horde. :)

    Managed lvl 65 on mission 6. Haven`t had time to go back and try again, butthe later bosses just have way to much health.

    So far i have maxed out the basic, rocket, ice and air towers. Any1 know if the sonic tower is any good? The one time I built 1 it seems to be to expensive to buid and max out.

    Pretty easy game, just gets really boring. The creeps alternate between just a few models and theres only a couple different towers, to make it not very exciting.
