There were other racing games before it, but Pole Position looked and played like nothing else. The graphics were the clincher. There wasn't much to work with back then, but the Indy cars resembled actual automobiles, and the Fuji racetrack featured billboards, grass fields and majestic mountains rising up from the horizon...oh, and other cars, which weren't a given in early racing games.

Namco, the game's creators released Pole Position in Japan first and distributed it throughout arcades across the globe, but Atari had the rights to the phenom in the States.

Tower Defence FunnyGames, March 26, 2008
Tower Defence is based on the populat Warcraft 3 (Element Tower Defence) and the Starcraft (Turret Defence) gameplay.

The object of the Tower Defence game is to prevent the hordes (called waves) of monsters from getting to the castle by building element towers near the path.

Your menu is located at the bottom of your gamescreen. You can choose from a number of different elements to build towers from. When you click on a tower that has been built, the build menu becomes an upgrade menu, allowing you to make your defence towers even stronger.

The monsters will appear (spawn) every 20 seconds or you could press the spacebar to speed up the spawn. The health of the monsters will be miltiplied by 1.25 in every new wave. If your defence towers fail to kill the monsters and they get into the castle, a cavillian of your castle will die. The game is over When all your civillians die.

Every tower defence game experience is different every time you play depending on element, positions and upgrades your choose for you defence towers.

Roman Sanine (creator of tower defence) scored 90. Are you able to get a higher score?

Here is the classic version: Play Tower Defence

In this version there is a "tower range" variable, the flower tower is a bit slower to attack and all known bugs are solved.
