Iron Sea Frontier Defenders
In Brief
Iron Sea Frontier Defenders is the second in the Iron Sea series (though if you bought it via Steam, the second game has been divided into two dlc packs covering the two campaigns available in today's game. You can find the first game Iron Sea Defenders over at MyPlayCity HERE. It's formulaic, but a playable tower defense game. I've given it an unbiased score of 7 ot of 10, but my own personal take would be 5 out of 10. :)

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.

The Game:
There are two campaigns The West Coast and Lost Land campaigns. The latter requires 35 stars to unlock. 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.

Ashampoo-Snap-2019-04-14-08h09m04s-007
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.

1) ...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.
2) ... The armored launch - This is the enemies light motorized boat that is quick but is also weak and therefore is destroyed easily.
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 which can be used once it has recharged. 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.
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:
Another run of the mill Tower Defense game. I love the genre, but this is a formulaic off the factory line type of tower defense game. I've seen twenty or more of this type of Tower Defense game released over the last several years, each one virtually the same apart from the story and background graphic. It's playable, but not inspiring like some Tower Defense games I've played over the years. My favorite is still Defense Grid: The Awakening. The difference between that and today's offering is in my opinion immense, with little in the way of interesting level designs. Still Iron Defenders is playable and does give some excitement to the game. If you are relatively new to this genre, this is an excellent game and worth a decent 7 out of 10. From my own experience of playing many tower defense games I'd rate it a little lower at 5 out of 10, but that's just my biased opinion.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Iron Sea Frontier Defenders to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.

I've never liked tower defense games, I'd rather play Risk clones.

Iron Sea Frontier Defenders is a tower defence game by 8 floor games. If you’re not familiar with those – 8 floor has a huge amount of these tower defence games and they’re all variations of the same theme – they’re cookie-cutter games – which means if you’ve played one, you’ve played them all.

However, they are well worth playing. You have two scenes and each scene has an Easy, Normal, Hard settings. You won’t pass on the Normal or Hard settings without having purchased some upgrades. You’ll have a much easier time of it if you first play the game through in Easy mode and buy the upgrades and then switch to Normal etc.

They are challenging to get gold – it does require you to strategically place the right weapons in the right spots – and other times it just requires you to have bought enough upgrades so that your weapons are strong enough.

What you upgrade is completely your choice and that also impacts on the game – and makes it fun & challenging.

You’ll have flying and sea-faring objects. They have different speeds and strengths. There are objects that can hide other objects - (they become visible when they take damage (use a secret weapon on them) – or go past a certain tower. You can click the object you want destroyed first and all the weapons will target it – which allows you to play strategically.

One of the nice features of these games is that you can pause the game at any stage – place or upgrade your weapons – and then continue the game.

Thanks for the giveaway.
