Excellent TD Game

I'm surprised this game isn't more popular. It requires some strategic thinking by allowing you to largely create your own path which is quite rare these days in the TD genre.
Good selection of towers with a lot of variety in how to upgrade them. There's also a good variety of enemies which makes things even more interesting as it requires careful selection of towers. They do throw the tougher enemies (and the kitchen sink) at you right from the beginning in the Bonus level maps but otherwise, the game is well balanced and the difficulty ramps up smoothly.
I would like the ability to target enemies. It's kind of silly for a TD game to not have that option or, at least toggle between attacking the first or strongest enemy.
If you like the game spend the 10 bucks for the "special offer" but you can complete most of the game without spending money. I opted for one of the cheaper IAPs to support the developer and for the hours of enjoyment they provided. I hope they will update with more levels in the future. I would be glad to even pay for them.

Fun, challenging game, should be more popular!

I found this game from reading the developer’s blog regarding developing games as I am looking for help on what publishing a game actually entails. At the end he plugged this game so I checked t out on the AppStore and was surprised at how polished and fun it is. One of the best things you can find in a free mobile app nowadays is not having pop up ads forced down your throat, instead giving us the choice to click on ads and support the developer. Good game, will continue to play!

Perfect Portrait Strategy Game

I love a good tower defense, but none of them are dynamic in the same way as Digfender. The ability to choose your own path, and make key decisions about resource gathering depending on the unique challenge of each level has kept me playing (even going as far as to redownload and start from scratch).

However, I have to take off two stars (for now) because of a bug that makes the game screen expand past the bezel of my phone (iPhone 11, iOS14.4) making it impossible to play when you can’t even see how much crystal or broken pieces you have in stock. If this gets fixed, the game would be perfect!
