Bloons Tower Defense 4: Expansion

Filed under: Free, Linux, Macintosh, Puzzle & Casual, WindowsHeath @ 05:09

Sweet Sandy Swirl!

Bloons 4X

It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year. A year since we started exchanging money we earned on a banana plantation to buy monkeys who hurl darts at balloons.

Gameplay

There are no gameplay changes to this expansion. Once again you choose a track and a difficulty level and then it starts. You have a selection between all sorts of ‘towers.’ In this game, the towers are monkeys. The gang at NinjaKiwi is all about the monkeys for one reason or another.

What I like about the Bloons Towers Defenses is that it comes in waves when you decide you want them. Tower Defense games are a thinking man’s game, so you need to have time to collect your thoughts and react to the different types of balloon.

That’s right. There are different types of balloons that you have to pop. The general idea is that these are recursive. That means that there are balloons within balloons within balloons. This is menacing, trust me.

For each balloon, you get a dollar. You can also build banana plantations which give you more money on the successful completion of a level.

Can you solve the mystery of the temple?

This is by far the most accessible Tower Defense game out there. The expansion pack includes some pretty cool levels that add different elements to the gameplay. For example, in the second level it looks like all you have to deal with is a series of pipes. However, there are breaks in each of the pipes. And there’s like a 30% chance that a balloon is going to slip through. This makes standard strategies rather difficult.

I wish they had added some more towers, but it’s still the same batch as Bloons 4. I still like to go with the goo blasters and then try to upgrade to the Super Monkey as quickly as possible. But I’m just a simple man with simple pleasures.

Final Verdict

If you were a fan, like I was, of Bloons 4, and you beat it and got really bored, then you should definitely spend some time with this. Your old tricks won’t work. Tim to rethink your strategy.
