13 Most Awesome Free Tower Defense Games

It’s been a while since our last list of TD (Tower Defense) games and in the meantime game developers haven’t been sitting still! That’s why I thought it was time to update the previous list and show you today’s thirteen best Free Tower Defense games.

Let’s get started with some free/premium browser-based (Flash) games.

13 Warzone Tower Defense

Free Flash game

Play

A great Tower Defense game, Warzone Tower Defense shows you a large grid where you can place your powerful towers. The key to this game is to have the waves of enemies ride the path you want them to take so you have the most time to blast them to pieces. Don’t just place your towers in a straight line to the base you’re defending. Block passage ways and create paths by strategically placing your guns, cannons, flame throwers, wall blocks and more!

12 Frontline Defense 2

Free Flash game

Play

It looks a bit like the Penguin defense game at #4, but instead of penguins you have to defend your base from waves of troops on foot or in tanks and planes. There are loads of towers to choose from once you’ve unlocked them all and each of them can be upgrade to perfection. Enjoy!

11 Canyon Defense

Free Flash game

Play

Canyon Defense seems a little basic, but is surprisingly entertaining. It definitely deserves a place on this list, so give it a go!

10 Shattered Colony: The Survivors

Free Flash game

Play

Zombies, zombies and more zombies! Shattered Colony: The Survivors has you create a defensive line of towers and barricades, but while doing so you need to keep an eye on your resources and how you assign your workers.

9 Desktop Tower Defense 1.5

Free Flash game

Play

As if played on your desk, Desktop Tower Defense has some cool towers to play around with and similar “hand-drawn” enemy waves to defeat.

8 Bubble Tanks Tower Defense

Free Flash game

Play Developer website

Not one of my favorites, but with nearly 6 million plays on Armor Games, who am I to argue? Bubble Tanks Tower Defense is also an adaptation of another original game: Bubble Tanks 1 and 2

 

7 Cursed Treasure: Level Pack!

Free Flash game

Play Developer website

This is the expanded version of the previous installment of Cursed Treasure. The Level Pack simply has what it says: extra levels! Have fun.

6 Castaway Island TD

Free Flash game
Play

Another adaptation of a previous popular game, Castaway Island TD brings you back to, uh, Castaway Island and lets you beat waves of familiar enemies with towers made from trees!

5 Crush the Castle TD

Free Flash game

Play

An adaptation from the very popular predecessor of Angry Birds, Crush the Castle 1 and 2, here comes Crush the Castle TD! It’s not as popular as its daddy, but very entertaining nontheless.

4 Penguins Attack TD 2

Free Flash Games

Play

This very entertaining TD game involves building and upgrading towers in strategic places so you can kill all those pesky penguins. That’ll be the last time the neighbor’s penguin took a crap in your garden!

3 GemCraft Labyrinth

Free Flash game

Play Developer website

The third installment of a great series of Tower Defense games, GemCraft: Labyrinth takes you even further into the art of creating, merging and upgrading Gems to destroy hordes of enemies. Definitely one of the top TD games out there!

2 Bloons Tower Defense 4 Expansion

Free Flash game

Play

Bloons 4 was in the previous list as well, but this expanded version is even better. With some new maps and new towers, don’t wait and get your monkeys out there!

 

1 Kingdom Rush

Free/Premium Flash game

Play Official website Developer website

The best on this list must certainly be this crazy-awesome TD game by Ironhide Games. It’s a cute non-scrollable setting in which you must keep the bad guys (over 30 different units!) from reaching the end of the road. Kingdom Rush features an amazing array of upgradable towers and powers and you can even expand on this by buying the Premium version of the game. You get to decide what this Premium content is worth to you, so it really is an interesting offer.
