Garden Defense is an action game that was first released in 2007. Lindencroft, a small town, is being attacked by pests. It is up to the Smith family to save the town and get rid of the pests. The player’s goal is to put up a strong defense that will be able to get rid of the pests and counter their attacks. Some of the items that can be used include wild inventions, plants that fight the pests, and a big arsenal of lawn ornaments.
At the start of each level, players will be able to see the types of creatures that are about to attack. Some of these include slow crawlers, fast fliers, and even hard-to-beat bosses. It is up to the player to choose the items to plant in order to beat the creatures. Each creature has a life bar above their heads to signify how much life they have. Players can only plant the items on the space provided on the game map. All the plants that are available have unique abilities that can target different types of creatures. The player also has the option to upgrade skills by using in-game money. Garden Defense features different levels of gameplay.
