Android and strategies in 2020
The above ranking has been developed based on player feedback, so it doesn’t have Tropico or Civilization productions yet. Because in the years 2019/20 a lot of strategies were released, but despite the high budget, fans are skeptical about them. According to industry portals, it is about playability and breaking with forcing the player to pay for various goods. Apparently, all new productions were unable to meet new trends.
According to Lucas Hann of MobiGames, the creators of Android games are so focused on earnings that they forget about players. It’s hard to disagree with this, because games in which after 10 minutes you come to the conclusion that without paying a single move, there is no shortage and new ones are constantly being created. And worse, even paid applications for $ 10 still require buying items for real money.
What is Brain Defense?
Brain Defense is a new game based on the famous and well-known “tower defense” scheme. This means that you have to defeat enemies who want to get to the target, in this case, – to Neuron. To prevent Neurosis infection, you have to build towers that will shoot down enemies before they reach their destination.
Enemies are negative emotions and feelings coming from the real world. So you have to overcome depression, anger and anxiety. For this purpose, you can use a Fake cookie, a Neuron Shadow, and a glucose factory.
Shooting turrets in the game
In Brain Defense, green turrets are dopamine manufacturers that defeat enemies. However, they are also effective in the case of Depression and Anxiety. In the real brain, the neurotransmitter dopamine is important for motivation and motor function. It seems that it can also support neurons in difficult cognitive tasks. The effects of dopamine deficiency become very clear in Parkinson’s disease when nerve cells produce too little. People who are deficient in this substance have trouble waking up early and feel tired during the day, so they are less likely to concentrate, so they are more likely to drink coffee and energy drinks.
In turn, the blue turret slows down enemies and so we can shoot them with a green or pink turret. This is a good solution when enemies go fast and the turrets do not catch up with fire.
The pink turret blasts the main enemy and those who are next to him. The main enemy loses most of its energy. This is a helpful solution when the strength of enemies in one place is quite large. Then, with one shot, we will shatter some enemies.
The purpose of the game
In the game you have to pass all 20 levels, so you have to solve 20 problems that are currently playing in the brain. Ending the last level is equivalent to finishing the game. On the way there are two levels x and Y, in which you will find locked weapons. This is necessary to complete the game. It is worth pointing out that the next levels are getting harder and harder to cope with the harder enemies to constantly improve the brain. Purchased upgrades, such as the power of the particular shot, the speed of the shot, and the range of the shot.
The best method to complete the game?
No doubt the best method is to use a cookie that attracts enemies. So it is best to place them near the shooting towers. At the same time you can also activate the shadow of Neuron, directing him to where the greatest concentration of enemies is. This means that cake and shadow are most effective when used together. In the later chapters, you can use a glucose factory that produces the glucose necessary to build new turrets. Remember to constantly improve your turrets.

About Tower defense games
Tower defense (TD) is a special subgenre of strategy video game where the goal is to defend a player’s territories or possessions by obstructing the enemy attackers, usually achieved by placing simple defensive structures on or along their path of attack. What differentiates tower defense from other base defending games is the player’s ability to strategically place or construct obstructions in the path of attacking enemies. The tower defense genre can trace its lineage back to the best age of arcade video games in the 1980s. The object of the arcade game “Space Invaders” released in 1977 was to defend the player’s territory against waves of incoming enemies. The game featured shields which could be used to strategically, to obstruct enemy attacks on the player and assist the player to defend their territory.
Between 2007 and 2008, the genre became a huge phenomenon, due in part to the popularity of the tower defense mode in real time strategy games, but mainly due to the rise of Adobe Flash independent developers as well as the emergence of major smartphone app stores from Apple and Google. Until 2010, most tower defense games used side scrolling, isometric, or top-down perspective graphics.
