This app is not intended to be educational.



Young children especially will love this tower defense game. Much like Plants vs. Zombies and others in its class, the game has the trappings of more grown up games, but is appropriate for younger players while being engaging for more mature players. This means it’s an ideal family activity or something that siblings can enjoy together. The game will encourage strategic thinking, planning, and timing, allowing players to build skills and play on their strengths to move through the levels. There’s enough complexity to keep the interest of older players, and it’s simple enough that young children can get the idea of how to play.

The game consists of building and placing a cake during the “day”, then defending the cake from marauding bugs at “night.”  The primary means of defense is to create walls of toast that form a maze to guide the bugs past weapons and stretch out the time it takes them to get to the cake.  It’s a battle of wits with bugs, and kids will love it!


This game costs $4.99. For dedicated TD fans it may seem a little pricy for only 18-21 levels, but for more casual players, the cost is well within lines. It’s also a fair price to find a tower defense game that plays like the big kids like while being appropriate for younger users.
