Not sure how I've missed the boat on this strategy variant. Perhaps it's because I don't have an iPhone - seemingly home to millions of tower defence games. Or perhaps it's because I associate it with real-time strategy, which has never been my preferred type of game.
But with Popcap's Plants Vs Zombies currently receiving rave reviews, I'm tempted to give the genre a chance.
Is Plants Vs Zombies a good place to start? Or should I try something a little more traditional?
For the fans out there, what's the appeal of the genre? And what's the best tower defence game yet?
