Press Quotes
"’s one of the most fun, polished and addictive games on the App Store." — God is a Geek, 10/10

Guard your ship as you mine for the precious Spice in each of the 55 levels, spread across 5 different environments, from jungle to arctic tundra. Use your mined resource to purchase new weapons, upgrades and more. Don’t worry

Spice Bandits features a multiplayer mode like no other tower defense game has to offer. Play in all-out war with 8 player online battles! Tactics, strategy, skill (and a little luck) will determine the victor.

Destroy the attacking force with your advanced alien weaponry. Choose from six tower classes and bolster your defenses with 54 (yes 54) different upgrades!

You are sure to fall in love with the comical little Spice hoarding aliens as they attempt to take over the world. Look out for some hidden easter eggs on the world map too. Tower defense has never had this much character!

Still holds up!!! In app purchases don’t work and can’t retrieve my progress though

I played this game soo much for years I can’t believe it still works! One of only a handful of games that have never been deleted from my devices. I hope on5 is still around but as there hasn’t been anything new from them in awhile I’m a bit worried. Still works and still holds up but can’t retrieve my old progress or in app purchases. While the IAP store says it’s offline and doesn’t allow you to buy anything from there you can buy IAP’s from the upgrade menu. But it doesn’t give you what you purchased. So until an update comes I suggest not trying to buy anything unless you feel like donating money to on5. I didn’t mind donating. Hopefully on5 see’s my purchase and works on a fix. On5 if you’re reading this if you can fix the IAP store ill buy at least 50$ worth of stuff. I know it’s not much but hopefully it gets your attention. Hopefully you guys have something in the works. Thanks for all the memories, take care

6 years later, still fantastic!

This is one of the first games I downloaded when I got my first iPhone ever (4s). I've played other tower defense games in the past and loved them, but this one...this one had something special about it. I spent hours playing this game, several times a week. I eventually stopped and forgot about this game over time :(... Fast forward to 6 years later I'm using my iPhone (6s plus), I'm in need of a fun game to play but can't find anything worthy. I decide to check out my app history and I dug as deep as I could. I found my old friend "spice bandits"! I downloaded the game thinking "6 years, it's probably not updated and won't work" but then it loaded up and there was my saved progress! I've now been playing for about an hour and I decide to check to see the update history,...July 2017! I have fallen back in love with this game and the developers! Thank you for keeping this game alive! I will never delete this from my phone again. Keep up the good work! I would love to see this game come to pc, steam maybe???...

Broken on iPhone XS - Great game, been playing for years

This is a fun app with good gameplay and very attractive, but cannot load maps, even tutorial fails, on iPhone XS.
