Last month we told you about Tweet Defense, a unique take on the desktop tower defense genre. Games like Pixel Junk Monsters and Comet Crash have added co-op to the genre, allowing direct player interaction, but Tweet Defense is trying co-op a different why.
By using your followers, tweets, and other twitter statistics; Tweet Defense boosts your tower stats. Each day one of your followers can apply a specific bonus to your play session, allowing you to fight back the zombie invasion.
The game is out now, and is priced at only $0.99 for a limited time.
I took it for a spin this afternoon, and so far it seems like a solid tower defense game. Once you sign into Twitter in the game you'll see what each stat earns you. For me my followers got me a 10% rate of fire increase, my friends got me a 20% range increase, and the number of tweets earned me 30% damage. My booster tower was none other than CheapyD of CheapAssGamer.com.
I managed to make it to the 20th wave before being overrun by the numerous zombies. The pregnant zombie that spawns the little baby zombies is one to watch out for!
