Tikiman the Forest Defender is in trouble. Hordes of monsters are sweeping through his realm, hoping to chow down on his offspring – and it’s up to you to defend them. By placing weapon towers at strategic points around the landscape, you can destroy the invaders and save the little ones. Collect treasure along the way to build up your arsenal and pay for new towers – countless waves of monsters are out to get the Tiki babies, so you need to be prepared to fight hard! Play three game modes: Single player campaign, local co-op play and a host of additional challenges. Play Together: Local co-op will have you sharing your machine with your friend for a memorable experience. Tikiman will travel across three distinct islands, spanning 47 unique environments to protect his offspring from clever monsters that attack by land and air.
It's cute. Nuf said.
Harder-than-most tower defense games simply because you advance beyond a set of levels only after getting the 'rainbow' (aka perfect) score for xx levels.
