Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Action, Strategy, Tower defence
If you're going to make a tower defence game for an iOS device, then you need to make sure it's really, really good. New ideas would be nice too, but you're going to need to make sure the base you build them on is as solid as it possibly can be.
So, while 300 Dwarves isn't revolutionary, the fact that its basic mechanics are stout and immovable, much like the bearded fantasy characters that make up the inhabitants of your towers, makes it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
There's no real step forward, but this is a package that's thick and weighty, with enough content to keep all but the angriest opponent of tower defence games occupied for a good while.
While it might not knock your socks off, 300 Dwarves is still a thoroughly entertaining tower defence experience
