In this 4th edition there is a whole new revamp on the graphics compared to the previous 3 games as well as heaps of new enemy Bloons, 6 new maps to complete and 6 new towers to buy and upgrade.
The aim of Bloons Tower Defense 4 is to create a barrier of defensive turrets that will automatically fire arrows and other ammunition at the floating Balloons that pass by. As the game progresses you will go through wave after wave of enemies, each time getting more difficult and harder to defeat.
Create a barricade of towers along the paths to ensure none of the Bloons escape to our base. When you start to earn enough points use them to upgrade your towers to more powerful units.
Bloons 4 brings a variety of gaming into the series with the addition of 2 extra Game Modes for you to play through. Apart from the Standard edition you can play Apocalypse mode if you dare! In this mode the Bloon enemies get harder after each wave, there are no rounds and the cost of towers and upgrades are set to Medium Difficulty prices.
Sandbox Mode is the easiest as you are given Unlimited Money and Life, so you can build and upgrade towers until your heart’s content, you can even choose which enemy types you want to come round next. Sandbox is pretty much used for testing out different ways of setting out the towers and finding out which ones are best for overall damage.
