I had played tower defense style games before, but none had really captured my attention or entertained me in the way Desktop Tower Defense did. Something about the design of the enemies, the open area for building mazes of damage, and the desktop background all clicked for me and gave me what remains to this day one of my favorite tower defense titles. In recent years, the tower defense genre has been making its presence felt in hugely successful ways on consoles as digital downloads, each with its own twist on the genre. The latest twist comes in the form of Defenders of Ardania, mixing RTS elements with tower defense basics."
