The Last Day Defense (Free VR Tower Defense game)

If you enjoy Tower Defense experiences, then I highly recommend this one. It is 100% free on the Oculus Store, and while it is a bit rough around the edges (the menu system isn't a AAA experience), once the action starts it is quite addictive.

For anyone interested, take a look at this gameplay video from @ParadiseDecay



This game has a near perfect rating on the Oculus Store:

Again, this is not a AAA title. It feels Early Access. But it still manages to have a huge addiction factor and is incredibly challenging on Hard difficulty (and above).

    The detail level is awesome!
    Have you found the piano inside one of the houses? :)
    You could bring the table up to eyes level (you need to change key settings to do this) and then it is easy to see details around and inside houses. It is sliced when you move your head inside one.

    If you do not like tower defense games just switch to easy (relax) mode and go through all levels. They are cool. The most to the end. Oceans, volcano, snow, fire, lightnings.

    ooh I need to replay this on easy mode after I'm done with Hard mode, so that I can enjoy the detail in all the levels. Right now I'm 15 hours in on Hard mode and getting my arsed kicked! I'm more than half-way to the end, and loving every minute of it. The levels where they attack from Land, Sea, and Air are my favorite. This is easily the best Tower Defense game I've ever played!

    I like the way this game could give you a surprise.
    Have you tried volcano? It is great WTF level :lol:
    And UFO's appearing inside your territory are fun.

    It's easy to miss this on easy level, but if you are not defending from air strike you will be actually bombed from the air. It's fun that your towers could be bombed or disabled if you will not pay attention.
  • ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 14,605 Valuable Player
    Yeah I made it past the Volcano level. I was angry when I realized that the volcano can actually destroy my own towers! lol

    I made it through all of the pure Sea battles, and I'm back on land. But the map I'm on has tanks that spawn with force field domes protecting entire enemy groups from attack. I can't get passed it!

    You are cool! :)
    Never had 1st or near.
    But I have not played on Hard.
    But the map I'm on has tanks that spawn with force field domes protecting entire enemy groups from attack.
    Lasers are great to take them down. They should be powerful enough.
    But you need to sacrifice some low level towers for "mind controller" tanks :)
    And powerful shockers are useful  to stop fast ones.

    It's great you need to try all types of towers in this game. Some levels are good for rockets, some for lasers. And you can't solve it with other tower type. Actually it feels like a puzzle game on hard levels.
    So you could not select "the only tower type you like" for all :)
    Upgrades are great too. You need not balanced tower most of the time. For air defense it is one artillery tower with 1 "range" upgrade and all others to "power". And it should be hidden from ground force shots. This way you need not upgrade "shields".

    What are your hints and tricks?

    ps. Hey! Where is @snowdog ? There are ufos there! :lol:

    I actually find a combo of Machine Gun Turret + Lazer Turret to be a very powerful combination when they are close to each other. And then Rocket Turrets close behind. I can usually maintain a frontal defense this way, and the areas farthest back are good for the anti-tank artillery and anti-air.

    However, this combo which has served me well (I have Flawless Victories on most maps, Hard difficulty) is no longer working on the force field maps! lol

    So yeah, they out-maneuvered me. This is more than just a Tower Defense game (you are correct!); this feels like a damn chess match. They have long range anti-artillery tanks, disabling tanks, AND force field tanks. With this evil combo, the enemy pretty much walks through my entire damn map unharmed. I guess I need to try to go full Lazer technology. FML

    Lasers are slow. So put all upgrades to power and cover them with shock tower (defended and powerful).
    Some maps will not allow you to defend frontal only. Even on easy mode. :)
    So I had to put some on front but same time a laser at back exit. Or 1-2 will escape on level start.
    And you have not enough money for artillery at first.
    Low level 3rd tower is good, you could change it to anti-air fast enough when needed.

    Okay... finally beat "Raging Thunder" on hard mode!

    The higher levels seem to be more about the Napalm Towers + Lazer combo's. I put Napalm up front and lazer along the paths. Works beautifully. I beat the level after "Raging Thunder" with a perfect score (Hard Mode) using this tactic. I didn't even need the slowing Shock Towers.

    You could skip that info and just start playing :)
    Select easy mode (leftmost) and start.

    Cool!
    I can't beat it on hard. I passed 6/8 waves max.
    Great idea about Napalm Tower. Never used them. They have after burning feature and that is saving tower firing time?
    I'm starting from 2 lasers + shock. But It helps for first waves only.
    How many towers did you have? I thought it is better to have lots of them with small level upgrades (not enough money for all). You are constantly under rocket attack, so splitting targets should work.

    This level is hard to beat even on easy mode :)
    And you should use different strategies for easy and hard mode.
  • ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 14,605 Valuable Player
    Napalm Towers raises the heat level of the enemies, and they start to take double-damage from both fire and lazer. So I will have 1 or 2 Napalm Towers up front, and 3-4 lazers in the back. It destroys everything quite well due to the double-damage bonus!

    I'm stuck on the last battle (Hard Mode). But I wanted to take a moment to talk about the battle just before it!

    A rather fun twist happens in the game. I'll put it in the spoiler tag...

    Just as the combat starts to intensify in the midst of battle, your actual play area gets infiltrated by the enemy. Not the battle map, but your entire play area itself. A ship flies in, drops a bomb on your map, and then you have to play the rest of the match with everything burnt to a crisp.

    That is really great wtf! One of those I was talking about (without spoilers).
    :smile:

    Good luck with last one!

    Have you any ideas why this game is not so popular?
    If you scroll level1 score table you'll see there is not more then some thousands.
    What will you change to make it better? Is logo image ok? Or store screenshots?
    Is it possible to reuse this game content/idea for multiplayer? So it will be re-playable.
    May it be like Landfall type of the game?

    hi guys. does anyone know, how can I do better scores in the game, or how the engine calculate the points in the game. I`m just wanna be the first on the board, but I can`t. Not really clear why. :( Please help  Thanks

    I can give you one tip... If you want better scores - play with harder difficulty level. Getting to 1st place will be tough, but great things come to great people. I hope you make it :)
    I love this game, specially in the "hell" mode.
  • ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 14,605 Valuable Player
    I need to get back in this game to finish the last level!

    Hi everybody! (Sorry, I don't speak english well!)

    I would like ask for their help. I play this game on "hell" difficulty and my worst result is 50. on the whole map. Moreover, mostly top 10. Even so, I'm just 300. on the main board.

    What do I do wrong?

    I noticed your name topping many levels, and still not high on total ranking, no clue why.
    I'm usually a little below you each map, but I am total 73.
    However, I've been hanging there quite a while, and my total score didn't increase for a long time, even though I have finished many different hell levels with a high score in the meantime.

    I'd expect total leaderboard score based on max scores for each level, but apparently it isn't (or it's simply bugged).

    What difficulties have you played and finished? I have finished all levels on normal and hell up to raging thunder (got stuck there). Easy and hard just a few levels.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Yes, I thought these two variations too: bug or I would have to play all of difficulties. I have finished on "Hell" and half finished on "normal". But it does not matter, I have already given up.

    Independently of this, it is a great game. Thank you Developers!
