Are you frustrated because there isn’t enough time in the day to devote to RPG’s? I may have a solution to your problem. Fantasy Defense on the IOS is the answer. The best part is its 100% free!!! The game is quite simple. Defense is not only the name of this game, it’s the whole game and it’s cool. There’s not much of a story other than the brief cinematic at the beginning of the game. Basically, there was piece in the land after a great evil was sealed away. Now that piece is threatened after the seals are broken. It’s up to you to save the kingdom from these foul beasts. The graphics in the game are cool and are inspired by the Japanese RPG style you’ve seen in early Final Fantasy games. There are 5 levels, each with 10 maps and a final Boss battle for each level. In each map you ave to defend a gate from hordes of monsters. The monsters travel along a path that leads from their entrance to your gate. You can call up soldiers and three heroes and position them along the pathway to defeat the monsters. You’ll have an army of knights, archers, mages and unlock-able heroes at your command.
Strategy is a big part of the game. Who you choose and where you place someone matters. For example, a mage or an archer has more range than a knight. Placing a character in the right spot, can be the difference in winning and losing a battle. Some characters also come with special abilities. For example, the Brandisher has a stun ability and the Ice mage freezes enemies in their tracks. Some enemies are so quick you need soldiers that slow them down, while the more powerful members of the group do their thing and kick some ass. The three Champions all have a level clearing summon attack they can use. After a brief cool down period, it’s ready to use again, as long as you have mana to spend. So spend wisely!!! Each gate that you are defending has 20 hit points. If 20 monsters make it through, you lose and have to play that board again.
There are two ways to build up your party. You can use the gold (only for soldiers) and mana (points required to summon heroes), one is for your unit and the other if for your heroes. As you defeat enemies, you’ll acquire more gold and mana that can be used to summon more soldiers and level them up as well. The only annoying part is that once you finish a level, your army and heroes start the next level over from scratch. Don’t get pissy just yet. After each victory you acquire hero points. These points can be used to upgrade your army and heroes. The customization is limited, but it does give you that special RPG feeling of building up your party.
The best part of this game is that you don’t have to purchase any add-ons to beat it. If you find yourself getting your butt kicked, you can go back to any of the previous stages and play any level over again. The hero points you get for victory don’t diminish. You can slowly max out the abilities of your army and then head back to battle. This is a must actually. The 5th level will make you lose your fucking mind as you get your ass kicked time and again.
Fantasy defense is a lot of fun for free. If you like RPG’s this game is for you. You can easily get lost for hours playing a console RPG. Don’t get me wrong, that’s fun. But, who has the time? If you don’t or need to kill time waiting online at a store, at a doctors office or even taking a massive dump, then Fantasy Defense is the way to go.

Hello Fellow Evil Geeks, I am Greekimus Prime.
Do you like wasting precious moments of your life building virtual cities, ultimately resulting in your lack of getting any ass whatsoever and have a love for the SIMPSONS? If the answer is yes, then maaaan do I have a game for you! It’s called The The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Sorry android users. This gift from the nerd gods is only available on IOS devices at the moment.
The story behind the game is that the town’s nuclear power plant finally goes Chernobyl, causing the town of Springfield to get blown to pieces, leaving behind an empty stretch of land. Your mission from this point on is to rebuild the town, in your own image. You’ll Spend hours gaining experience, collecting loot, building all of the iconic buildings from the show and best of all, unlocking all of the great characters that have made us laugh for over the past 20 years. Each character has a set of timed missions that highlight some of the best moments from the show. For example, you can make Bart skip school, have Flanders hold bible study, watch Mayor Quimby give a speech, send Homer on a bender at Moe’s and even have Nelson mocking you with his laugher and finger pointing. And that’s only to name a few of the great missions you can send your characters on. One of the best things about this game is how often it’s updated. They have consistently added more content since I’ve started playing. They keep adding buildings, new characters and even celebrated holidays.
During the month of October they updated the title menu and made it a Halloween theme. They went onto add characters, side missions, and zombies! Yes, I said zombies! The Springfield cemetery and Pet cemetery were added to the game, along with Zombies, both person and pet, which you got to squish underneath the great might of your finger. It was f-n great. They also had un-lockable content that tied in with this seasons and previous seasons, Tree House of Horror episodes. I’ve still got the creepy Mayan guy just walking around my town. They did the same thing with Thanksgiving, in fact I had giant Itchy and Scratchy Thanksgiving day floats rocking back and forth in the middle of my town. And now that we’re into December we’ll see some great Simpsons Christmas moments from years past make it to the game.
You can also add friends and visit their towns. A cool feature once you’re visiting a town is that you can collect loot and experience, while vandalizing your friends’ buildings. By far, the best feature of the game is how much you can do for free. There is an option to buy more donuts, the secondary way to purchase characters and buildings in the game. Don’t worry poor nerds, like I said, you get 95 percent of the important characters and buildings for free. You can earn donuts when you level up. So, collecting Otto and his broken down school bus, the Duff Beer Company and Mole man are only a few levels away.
The saying that you can’t get something for nothing doesn’t apply here. Fans of the Simpsons and city building video games will gladly fall face first into this game. So give it a try if you’re looking for something fun and addicting to play. For more app news and other new nerdy shit, let the Brotherhood keep you informed.
This is Greekimus Prime, signing off!
