Gamer Defense is a tower defense game featuring characters from popular video game franchises and includes retro minigames. It was created by a group of five students in a game design class.
As in most tower defense games, you must select and place towers to protect the base from enemies. These towers will shoot, slash and bomb enemies as the enemies follow a predetermined path to the base. Kill all the enemies in a level to progress to the next level. If you fail to defend your base and run out of lives, the game is over.
Each tower has different ways in which it affects enemies. Mario shoots fireballs, Link swings his sword, Donkey Kong throws exploding barrels with area of effect damage, Pac-Man runs down a lane eating all the enemies, and Fox leads his team on a bombing run to decimate all enemies on the screen. Also, the Pikmin tower can be placed in a lane to block and stop enemies until its health runs out.
For each enemy killed, you are rewarded money. This money can be used to buy more towers; it is also your score. It is possible to spend all your money on towers, but that leaves you no final score. The key is to spend as little as possible to kill all the enemies and achieve the highest score. You also receive money for each life you didn’t lose during the level.
Occasionally, an enemy will drop a power-up when it is killed. Clicking on the power-up will transform the tower defense into a retro game like Pong, Snake, or Space Invaders. Each minigame gives an arcade-style way to kill onscreen enemies.
