Commando Defense is a single-player tower defense game, developed by Miniclip. The game was released on February 23, 2012.


There are 16 different maps. In each one of them, the game is played on an elevated area, where a deep path with turns begines on one of the map's side and ends on another side of it. However, in some maps, there are more than one enterace and/or one exit.
Each map has a number of enemy waves, that come from the path's beginning to its end.
The player character has a machine gun and shoots enemies in its range, and can walk to the other parts of the elevated ground and cross the path from bridges.
On the sides of the path several metalic squares are placed, where the player can construct towers for attacking enemies. Towers can then be upgraded (for increasing damage and range) or deleted.
By killing ememies, the player earns money, allowing him to build and upgrade towers. Also, the player can send troop units tha cme from the end of the path to its beginning, damaging earby enemies.

There are two types of enemies: ground enemies and aircrafts. If a ground enemy makes all the way to the end of the path, the player loses a life. If the player loses all 15 lives, the game is over. They are all based on the ones at the main Commando series of games. Since they were in 3D-like animation featured on this game, it is possible to see every angle of each enemy unit.

Each tower has its own price and range. The more a tower is upgraded, the wider its range is, the more powerful it is, and the higher its selling value is. Towers cannot be upgraded more than 4 times. On each upgrade, the following upgrade's cost gets higher.

Graphics Edit

Commando Defense features a 3D-like animation of units and towers. The player too is also 3D-like. Thus, it is the only game in the series to feature that.
