AR Defender 2 (Video Game Review)
AR Defenders 2 features 6 different heroes and 9 different towers that each have their own unique traits and special abilities to help destroy the waves of enemies before losing the tower. Toasting enemies with a flamethrowers, calling in an aerial strike to rain down destruction on threats or even hacking enemy troops to fight for the hero's side is all possible in AR Defenders 2. Of course, there are plenty of enemies including brand new troops in the recent release from lowly drone robots to enemy tanks and more. The action is fast paced, unrelenting and is as an addicting of a tower defense game as you'll find on any platform, and the flexibility and accessibility of iOS and Android mean you can try out the game for free on your mobile device no matter where you are.
Of course, it wouldn't be AR Defender 2 without some augmented reality play, and that's just what you'll find in the game with the assistance of a quick printout from the official AR Defender 2 website. With the help of this handy little accessory, you can bring the contents of your desk or floor into the game to create unique battlefields giving the game unlimited stages beyond the original 40 included with the game. At anytime during a match, the augmented reality can be switched off in favor of a typical stage from the game. The game's graphics aren't terribly impressive, and some of the more hectic gunfights can make it difficult to track the action, but a fun soundtrack helps bolster the game's presentation and immerse you in the action. You'll want to pick up a copy of AR Defenders 2, because it is free, but you'll continue playing the game for hours, because it's a fun title that's difficult to put down once you've started playing. The game just adds more replay value once you start shooting for the highest scores on the game's leaderboards, so check out AR Defenders 2 on your mobile device today!
