Android Quick App: GRave Defense HD

Maybe I should be productive in some way on my Android tablet.  I could take notes about upcoming phones, or use the browser to pay the bills, but I don't.  Games are way too fun on these things for all that jive.  And since I'm a sucker for all things undead, GRave Defense HD is right up my alley!  It's a tower defense game, but a damn good one.  The graphics are amazing, and instead of fighting off endless strings of enemy vehicles or balloons, you must protect yourself from the hordes of zombies and assorted nasties using weapons ranging from machine guns, to lasers.

There's also a storyline if you're in to a more immersive experience -- you work your way through the ranks of the "Brotherhood of Steel" and you can follow and share your progress through Scoreloop.  Killing zombies is fun, and apparently is social, too.

The most stunning part are the visuals.  The levels are diverse, with things like a rainforest scene, the Bermuda triangle, even outer space -- you're not stuck in the same graveyard for the 20 levels of gameplay.  Of course, all this comes at a cost.  You will need a fairly high-end device to display this content.  The developers recommend a device with over 384 MB of free RAM, and a minimum display of 800x480.  Most phones sold this year will be just fine, but some of the more mid-range offerings just won't handle this one.  All things said, GRave Defense HD rocks on any Honeycomb tablet

You can find GRave Defense HD, currently on sale for €0.70 (about $1.00), in the Android Market.  It's for phones and tablets running Android 2.1 and higher.  We've got more pics, a video, and the download link after the break.

  • Bought! Thanks for posting!
  • Now I need a tablet. Fortunately I have GraveDefense for my Android phone, but nothing beats HD.
  • I have owned the regular version for awhile now. This isprobably top 3 or top 5 Tower defense game for android.
  • Guys, I need help. Im a huge fan of Grave defense, I played the original version and now have the HD version. UNFORTUNATELY I am really stuck at level 13, AMAZON. Its the level with the suicide bombers and mines. I am on normal difficulty and can not bet it. I also couldn't beat it on the original version. I'm pretty decent with tower defense games, but this level is killing me. I have searched all over the web and cannot find any tutorials, walk throughs or any help whatsoever. I beg you all, if you beat this level please give me some tips! the damn bombers keep destroying all my towers no matter what I do. the furthest I have ever made it is wave 12. Help, Help, Help :)... Kudos to the developers for making such an awesome game, I love a challenge, but I want to play all the levels!
