I’ve always been a huge fan of games, especially those that really challenge my skills. Lately a certain type of games that I find very entertaining are the defense tower ones and the reason for that is because they require you not just to be a good defender but also a strategic attacker.

The overall mission on these adventures is to protect a base from being destroyed, this is typically accomplished using different tools to either defend or attack the enemies. One of the best tower defense games that I’ve seen is called Spice Bandits and if you enjoy strategic games keep reading because this one is a great choice for you. I find more interesting those games that actually tell a story, that way I can see myself playing with purpose and at the end that results in a more engaging experience. Spice Bandits has a funny story actually, this game is about some space pirates who love spice and they will do anything in order to get it. This time they have targeted planet Earth as their next source of spice, and since you are an Earthly habitant it is your duty to stop these creatures from accomplishing their goal.
A little bit of technical specifications about this app
Spice Bandits is an app that is only compatible with iOS devices, it is kind of weird since all apps these days are compatible with Android operative system as well; that is not the case this time. This game is developed by Chillingo LTD. and it is rated for ages 9 and up, the app can be downloaded from the App Store for free and no special hardware is required to play with it. The app is compatible with iPhone 3GS to 5, iPod Touch 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation and any iPad. It requires iOS 4.3 or later.
This app has a perfect score of five stars on the App Store, the comments are great and there are some guys who say that they would like to have an extended version of the game. The experience is kind of addictive and the reason for that is that it has many great features working on its favor. Here I would like to explain some of the most relevant.
- Graphics: This game is designed to with amazing graphics; the detail of each scenario, weapon and character is amazing. I’ve always thought that a critical factor in order to build a great game are the graphics, this is not a rule of course, but the point is that the game has graphics with amazing definition for you to enjoy.
- Gaming experience: The one thing that I found that most people love (as well as me) about this tower defense game is that it allows you to place weapons in a strategic way so that the enemies can’t pass; then these spice thieves find their way to your base and the whole strategy has to change quickly. This is the way each level goes and as you go farther the challenge is bigger.
- Weapons: There is a huge variety of weapons to select from; these include machine guns and snipers, Tesla coils, rocket launchers, anti-aircraft machine guns, and much more. All these can be upgraded in order to increase the destroying power, trust me, you’ll need the upgrades. These upgrades can be either purchased using a credit card or earned with points as you move forward in the game.
- Number of levels: This funny and interesting app features 55 different levels full of strategic moves, fun, entertainment, and challenging enemies ready to steal Earth’s spice if you let them do it.
- Multiplayer modes: With Spice Bandits you can use a multiplayer mode that I‘ve not seen available in any other tower defense game. This is great because it allows you to play with other people around the world and thus improve your battle skills. Many of the reviews actually highlight this feature as one of the biggest contributors to Spice Bandits’ success.
If you enjoy strategy games Spice Bandits is for you
By now it is probable that the only thing that you want to do is to start using this great app; I encourage you to do so and come back with your comments about it. Remember that this app is only compatible with iOS devices and that it can be downloaded for free from the App Store. Pay special attention to the graphics of the app, enjoy the gaming experience and make sure to protect the Earth’s spice. Happy gaming!
