About Tower Defense Games

Place defensive towers and fight your way through wave after wave of enemies. Don't let any of them get to your base! To win, you'll need to think strategically and manage your resources carefully. Surprisingly, tower defense games are somewhat similar to business games, in the sense that it is crucial to manage your time and resources carefully in order to beat the competition and win the game. 

The Tower Defense Playlist is small but mighty. While there may not be that many tower defense games on here, most of the titles here are likely to provide a fun and action-packed challenge. 

Tower Defense Strategies

Tower defense games can be hard for beginners, so we have a couple of quick tips that apply to most of the games on the Tower Defense Games Playlist.

Place towers on corners

Placing towers on corners will give them more opportunities to shoot down enemy objects. This is especially useful for short-range projectiles that can’t shoot all the way across the map.

Long-range towers should go towards the middle

If towers are able to span across the entire map, placing them in the center will maximize their range and efficiency. Even if they can’t quite reach the entire map yet, you will likely be able to upgrade their range as you earn more money in the game.

Upgrade Upgrade Upgrade!

Speaking of upgrades, you should be doing that a lot. Almost every single game on the Tower Defense Games Playlist has the option to upgrade your defenses. This is especially useful for more powerful projectiles that will be used as the workhorses of your team.
 

Are all of the Tower Defense games free?

Of course! Just like all of our other games here at Coolmath Games, the tower defense games are completely free. Even the most complicated games won’t cost you a penny, all you have to do is watch an ad before you start.

What makes the tower defense games any different?

While the Tower Defense Playlist may seem like a collection of basically all of the same games, there is a surprising amount of variation in them. Whether it’s the overall mechanics of the game, the difficulty, the kind of enemies that are trying to overtake you, or the towers that you set up, there is no shortage of variety. 

Where is the Bloons Tower Defense Series?

Unfortunately, the Bloons Tower Defense Series ran on flash. As you may know, games haven’t been able to run on Flash since 2020 (see our blog here to learn more about it). We know that that was the most beloved tower defense game on Coolmath, and we hope to eventually get them back up on Coolmath Games. Until then, we have a ton of other games on the playlist to check out. Who knows, maybe you will end up finding another game that you love even more than the Bloons Tower Defense series. 

What is the best Tower Defense Game?

While it is certainly difficult to decide which game is the best, Toy Defense is definitely the most popular. The combination of tower defense and cartoonish fun makes it really stand out from the crowd.
