I discovered some great (online) games today that I would like to pass on. The first is a promotion game for the game Star Wars: Lethal Alliance. I know that most of you like Star Wars.If you do you have probably asked yourself why the Empire did construct the Death Star the way it did, or why it did not modify the plans after the first one was destroyed.
In Episode VI, the defense shield surrounding the Death Star was just protected by a handful of Stormtroopers, and the Death Star itself was still vulnerable to attacks just like it has been before.
Death Star Designer is your change to make it better. Create the meanest Death Star of them all for the Emperor. You receive lots of credits and have to make all the choices. Install Defense systems, firepower, naval facilities and much more. Just make sure you stay in the limit or the Emperor will not be pleased. Once you are done your design is reviewed and you will face criticism about all the design flaws of your Death Star. You may then redesign the Death Star or submit the design anyway.
The second game is called Tower Defense. Buy and Upgrade Towers that attack the waves of monsters that try to storm your castle and kill your citizens. You receive money for every monster that your towers kill and you can use the money to build new towers or upgrade existing ones to make them stronger. Great game, lots of fun.
The second game was recommend by a veteran reader of my blog, Thinker. It is also a Tower Defense game, this time in the well known Starcraft universe. Instead of building towers you build structures known from the game to beat waves of enemies that try to destroy your hive. Yeah that's right, you play the Zerg. A bit more complicated than the first Tower Defense game but still lots of fun.
Update: Death Star Designer is no longer available on the Internet, and we have removed the link as a consequence.
Update 2: Tower Defense is also no longer available, and the link has been removed as well. You can check out our games list that we update regularly for newer games that you surely will like.
