I'm back....

I tried Opera browser, and, it did ask me for an email (it did NOT last time I wrote about it).

Clicked on the link in the email, and of course chrome started (default), and still, it gave me the same warning, and I could NOT open the file, only a "discard" button showing.

Sooo.... I copied the link and headed toward Opera.

Opera downloaded fine (and faster), I then checked the file file with both protection I have, AVG free and, IObit Anti-malware full version (given away here previously). They both gave me the go-ahead.

I installed. played the first level, exited, and everything is fine so far.


Strange what Chrome browser did, is it not?!

First of all, always, thanks for the free sw.
Secondly,

Strange !!!!
Chrome blocked the download.!
it stated "IronSeaDefende....zip may be dangerous, so Chrome has blocked it.".

Hmmmm.!!!!

I thought that was the job of the anti virus.!

I'll try another browser, I'll come back here if encountered something similar.

While we're at it, how about making a space version? I might actually try one like that.

Therese S.,

Hi Theresa, Zotrix - Solar Division is a space oriented TD game. Definitely a game worth checking out. :)

Iron Sea Defenders
In Brief
A run-of-the mill Tower Defense game.
Iron-Sea-Defenders-001

Iron-Sea-Defenders-002
Introduction:
Iron Sea Defenders is the original game, last weekends Iron Sea Frontier Defenders was the sequel, or, if buying via Steam, frontiers is sold as two separate dlcs covering the two campaigns that frontiers contains. Apart from the level designs, Iron Sea Defenders is exactly the same as last weekends Iron Sea Frontier Defenders. 8th Floor have rehashed this game loads of times, with the same game play mechanics in every game they have released in this genre. The only difference is the theme and environments look different. If you've not played too many of these games, especially ones from 8th Floor, then this is a worthwhile download and the game is reasonably decent, but, if you have played a lot of these, you'll find it a little too predictable and lacking any originality. The Steam community gave the game overall positive reviews, which you can check out HERE

Installation:
Iron Sea Defenders downloads to a 78.2 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper the set-up file and a read me). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately .... MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Iron Sea Defenders
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop; the shortcut to the game, plus three others ''Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and a shortcut to a free online game. These latter three shortcuts can be deleted once the game has been installed. The Themida wrapper may alert your security and even block the installation; there are details about this issue in the read me that unpacks from the downloaded zip file.

Iron-Sea-Defenders-006
The Game:
There are two campaigns Atlantic Ocean and The South Pole; you require 35 stars to unlock the latter campaign. . Each campaign comprises of 20 levels which can be played on three different difficulty modes easy, normal and hard. When starting a new game you can skip the tutorial level if you wish. Along the top of the level screen you can see the amount of gold you have; this is used to buy your towers and in game upgrades. Next to the gold indicator are the number of anchors, which are used to buy special upgrades for your towers to have more damage, more range and cost less to purchase other items. You can also spend your anchors on common upgrades such as increasing the amount of money you start a level with, effectively giving you the ability to buy more towers, or you can spend your anchors on increasing the amount of loot you get from destroying ships or increasing the forts strength, so that more enemy ships are required to attack it. Each of these upgrades can be repeated six times, with increasing costs for each extra upgrade. Anchors are awarded at the end of the level. Also awarded at the end of the level are stars. You can earn up to three stars for each level, these are equivalent to bronze, silver and gold awards you see in other games and are calculated on a combination of your score and fort health. Starts are used to unlock a second campaign called Lost Land. Each campaign has 20 levels to beat.
Next to the anchor symbol is your health indicator. You start with 25, which as indicated above can be increased by spending your anchors on the fort upgrade. This indicates the health of your fort. If any enemy ship manages to survive the gauntlet of your towers, and enter the fort, you lose one health for each enemy entering. Losing all 25 ends the level.
Iron-Sea-Defenders-007

Iron-Sea-Defenders-008
Next to the fort health indicator is the wave indicator. This shows you how many waves to expect in the level and which wave is current. Along the bottom of the game arena are four buttons. The first is your options button The second pauses the game and the third restarts the game. The fourth will increase the speed of the game. This is useful once you've completed your tower building to rush along the level. Finally, at the beginning of a new wave you are given a warning as to how long it will be before the next wave starts. This appears next to where the wave will start. This can change from level to level, so it's important that tower placement is done tactically so that you don't leave an entrance to the fort area poorly or totally undefended. You can force the wave to start immediately by clicking on the next wave button. This will earn you some extra gold. The sooner you click on the button when it appears, the more gold you earn.
As you progress new inventions will appear, for example as soon as you start the game there are two inventions given. The light cannon (your basic tower defense weapon) . The light cannon can hit all kinds of enemies. Field tests have shown it to be highly effective against small vessels. The enemies get a armored launch. This is the enemies light motorized boat that is quick but is also weak and therefore is destroyed easily.blockquote>
Iron-Sea-Defenders-009

Iron-Sea-Defenders-010
Then, as you progress other inventions appear for example the heavy cannon, which is more powerful than the light cannon and has a longer range but fires more slowly. It is also limited to ground and low flying targets, and the airstrike (your secret weappon) which can be used once it has recharged (takes approx 75 seconds). The air strike is particularly good at against ground targets and can destroy a large number of enemy ships if they are clustered together.. The air strike is particularity useful at the start of a new wave, but can also be used as an emergency tactic if it looks like some ships are about to attack your fort. You can cancel your airstrike by clicking on the airstrike button again. Inventions are not restricted to the defenders. Your enemies also get upgrades; for example their first invention is the corvette, a faster moving ship with more health. You get a warning located in the bottom left of the game arena when a new wave is about to start.
When you hover over a tower defense, it shows you the area the tower can defend. Upgrading the tower using gold you've earned from destroying enemies will increase the radius of the defensible area. Once you have enough anchors you can upgrade towers further to increase their range even more as well as their destructible strength and reduce the cost.
As you destroy enemies, you earn cash, which can be used to purchase more towers and upgrades. Placing towers in the correct positions, especially at the start of a level is crucial to survive. Some defensive areas are not as effective as others, so you need to select your first positions with care. There are two upgrades available for each tower, plus you can sell your tower for a limited amount of cash (only a percentage of what you paid for it) if the tower is badly placed, or you are in the end game and need towers nearer the fort to protect it from attack If your fort loses all of its health you lose.
Iron-Sea-Defenders-011

Iron-Sea-Defenders-012
At the end of a level your level rewards will appear indicating how many stars you've earned, your kill score and points earned for defending your fort as well as the number of anchors you have earned. (I've not figured out how the game decides how many anchors you get yet). Along the bottom of the level stats are three buttons. The first one allows you to restart the level, the second one takes you to the level selection screen where you can opt to play the next level, or any previously unlocked level. The third button takes you to the workshop. As new inventions are found they are added to the workshop and can be upgraded up to six times. Each upgrade costs more to buy for example the first upgrade costs four anchors, the second costs 10 anchors the third 14 anchors etc. Each upgrade reduces the percentage costs, or increases the percentage effectiveness of the upgrades.

Conclusion:
Iron Sea Defenders is a well constructed tower defense game, but it's one of many with the same game mechanic as previous releases by the same developer. all that's changed is the skin. Game play is exactly the same in every game of this type they have released. We've been given a few of them over the last couple of years. As mentioned in the brief, if you've not played many of these, the game is okay, but to seasoned TD gamers, this is just a little too tedious. Fr newcomers to the genre i'd score this a 8 out of 10, but from my own experience of TD game si'd give it a 5 out of 10. I recommend you try one or more of the following: Defense Grid: The Awakening, Defense Grid 2, Revenge of the Titans, Rock of Ages, Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder™, Plants vs. Zombies, Creeper World 3: Arc Eternal, Orcs Must Die, Towers of Altrac, Zotrix - Solar Division, Sanctum, Sanctum 2 to name just a few of the many decent and offering original content compared to todays game.
