Scribble Defense is yet another Tower Defense game, but it has some unique characteristics that are worth checking out.
If you download the free version of Scribble Defense, then youâ€™ll get a pretty solid game (since the free version oddly has some extra levels and online leaderboards). The gameplay is pretty good, and the presentation is alright.
This is just like any other tower defense game, except it has some special variations. A big difference is that you have an eraser, which you can use to scratch away at your enemyâ€™s health (but it is well balanced and doesnâ€™t make the game unfair). Another gameplay changer is the â€œPullâ€ tower, which will suck your enemies into it like a whirlpool and hold them there for awhile. Also, the paths that the enemies travel on can move and change as youâ€™re playing. These new additions make the game a bit more unique and fresh to play. However, there arenâ€™t any tower upgrades, and the selection for picking towers isnâ€™t the best. Otherwise the controls work decently, and are easy to learn. The difficulty of the game unfortunately seems a bit low, since even the hard levels arenâ€™t extremely challenging. In my opinion, there are better tower defense games out there.
The visuals are just alright, but the music is pretty good, hence the 4/5 score. The visuals never stuttered and were always fluid, which is always good.
Lasting Value: 4/5
If you download the free version (Scribble Defense+), then youâ€™ll get about two and a half hours of gameplay. The replayability is pretty good, since your score is rated with a letter grade, and you can see which levels you got stars (Aâ€™s) on really quickly. Also, the free version has online leaderboards, which once again help the replayability. Oddly enough, the paid version (Scribble Defense) has fewer levels and no leaderboard. So download the free version; the advertisements arenâ€™t really intrusive.
