Selecting the game mode opens a new screen with various maps available in which the game can be played.

The top of the screen shows the amount of money that is available in the player’s kitty and number of lives pending, the time pending before the next enemy wave is unleashed and the nature of the enemy wave. The path that the enemy wave would embark on is shown in the map through blue dotted lines which is useful for the player to devise his strategy.

Functionality: The game is available in two modes: Campaign and Survival. In the Campaign mode, there are multiple levels available and the player has to ensure that he defeats all waves of the enemy in that particular level before he can progress to the next level. The survival mode is more of a freestyle sort of game, where the player has to ward off as many waves of enemy attack as possible. The game play involved in both the levels is the same: scores of enemy war craft are unleashed upon the player, which he has to defeat through the strategic placement of his troops. As many as nine different types of waves are available and each wave requires a different strategy to defeat it. There are four base war crafts that are available to the player: land to land combat, land to air combat, fire emission and sound emission. The player will have to cleverly maneuver through these war crafts and their various upgrades to defeat the enemy wave. The first two maps are available for free and the rest of the maps are available for purchase. There are numerous ways to defeat an enemy wave and setting the strategy is solely based on the player’s ability to set up defense formations. The order of the enemy waves is random and this adds more spice to the game, meaning that a level which has already been cleared can be difficult the next time, due to a different order in which the enemy waves are released. This game has all the necessary ingredients to keep the players mesmerized for a long, long time.
