Asteroid Defense, Deonn Games' first foray into Android gaming, was an instant favorite of ours back in July. A tower defense genre is getting saturated, but Asteroid Defense managed to be sufficiently different from other tower defense games while offering excellent graphics and playability.
This week, Deonn Games released Asteroid Defense 2, which is a paid version with more enemies, explosions, guns, aliens, shrink rays, black holes, better graphics, and more game modes. Frankly, I think Asteroid Defense 2 should have really been Asteroid Defense, while Asteroid Defense should have been Asteroid Defense Beta, but I realize that it would have probably caused confusion now.
Before you go any further, I urge you to check out this gameplay video, showcasing the new game in all its glory - there's a lot to like in there:
Here's the full changelog from the first version, as provided to us by the developer:
New Weapons. GUNS, lot’s of guns..
Stunning new graphics.
Black holes! Vortexes!!!
I do have to warn you that the 2nd version costs a cool $4.99, which is a bit steep in my opinion. It's not that I can't fork out $5 for an amazing creation, but I think it would do a lot better at $2.99.
