Amazon adds mobile units to tower defense genre

The first mobile game developed by online retail giant Amazon, Air Patriots offers a new take on the popular tower defense game genre. Typical tower defense games ask you to protect your terrain from incoming attackers by placing stationary units strategically across your map. But what's unique about Air Patriots is that its units are all mobile, which makes things quite a bit more difficult, and fun. In fact, with moving units that feel like they're on offense quite a bit more than they are on defense, it's almost as if Air Patriots doesn't fit into the tower defense genre at all. Regardless, Air Patriots is an incredibly addictive game that's easy to play and sufficiently challenging at the same time.

Air Patriots includes seven maps, 28 levels, and 13 types of aircraft. Of course, not all of these items are available at the start of the game, as you must beat levels, earn Gears (one form of in-game currency), and unlock most of them as you go. Alternatively, you can use real-world money to simply buy Gears, which speeds up the process, but takes a lot of the fun out of it. If you are leaning toward dropping the cash, though, then I would suggest the Super Pack, which unlocks all the maps, and other extras such as the Howling Wolf chopper.

As in other tower defense games, each map comprises two or more routes from one side of your screen to the other. Your job is to prevent the enemies from escaping to the other side of the screen. In Air Patriots, each time an enemy does escape, you lose a Heart. If you lose 20, the game is over. To help you in your mission, Air Patriots gives you a plane (sometimes more than one) to start each level. As you use this plane to destroy enemy tanks, you earn coins, which can then be used to purchase more units.
