Gameplay
In Desktop Tower Defense players are tasked with eliminating a hordes of invading enemies known as 'Creeps.' To do this they construct a combination of turrets to fight from, which surround the Creeps' invasion path and place mazes in Creeps' paths to keep them in range of the weapon-mounted turrets. This is more complex than it seems though. The game contains many different kinds of Creeps, each with different abilities, meaning players must constantly be aware of which mazes and turrets are where, and be able to update these on the fly when necessary.
