It's a bright and shiny futuristic sci-fi world, all splattered with alien bug guts.

Monkeys, darts, tower defense, and co-op, together at last!

Bloons TD 5 Adds Co-Op Mode

Here's something you don't see every day: a browser game with online co-op support! Ninja Kiwi has taken the ever-popular Bloons TD 5 and included a two player online co-op mode, complete with loot sharing and four new levels. At its core, Bloons TD 5 is a casual tower defense game, only instead of towers shooting arrows and creeps running around, it's all about invading balloons and monkeys throwing darts.

Sanctum 2 Trailer Features Gameplay Footage

Well that was quick. Just a few weeks ago, Coffee Stain Studios released a tiny little teaser getting us ready for the tower defense/first person shooter hybrid Sanctum 2. Now, real and actual gameplay footage has been released! The trailer has about, oh, 60 seconds of in-game stuff going on, with plenty of dramatic shots showing you just how screwed you'll be if you stop placing defense towers or running around shooting swamp creatures with your customizable guns.

Sanctum 2 Teaser Trailer Drops Out of the Sky

The tower defense/FPS hybrid Sanctum turned more than a few heads when it was released in 2011. It got enough attention that developer Coffee Stain Studios announced a sequel the very next year and has been hard at work ever since, building the game's engine anew and incorporating loads of player feedback. Now, Sanctum 2 is being teased out in small doses, and the first delivery includes just enough eye candy to get our attention.

Anomaly: Warzone Earth Co-Op Review

Anomaly: Warzone Earth is described as a "tower offense" game. It has been a success on many platforms, first on PC and Mac, then for iOS devices, Android, and finally on Xbox Live Arcade last spring. One thing was missing from the package, though: co-op. The Playstation Network release fixes this oversight with the inclusion of a co-op mode for two local players. So how does the "tower offense" work exactly, anyway, and does the co-op make the experience better, or worse?
