You must defend your base from incessant waves of enemy attack by balancing competing upgrades to your defences. Frantic base movement about wave patterns leads to an innovative balance between strategy and arcade.
Please see the blog for news and changelogs.
A FAQ is available at the bottom of this page here.
A paid for 'Pro' version is available. The differences between Pro and standard are:
- Ad Free
- Unlimited levels (standard is caped at 72)
Money (bounty) is awarded for kills and interest is earned on the money left in the bank at the end of a level. Money can be used to upgrade the base in various ways. Beware: an upgrade to one aspect will degrade another!
Current interest rate and bank balance are shown under the score in the top left of the screen. Current level and lives left are shown in the top right.
Tap the screen to move your base. Use diectional pad to tweek position. Movement speed is determined by the 'speed' attribute
Activating cloak will allow you to cross a wave undetected and at twice the speed to help you get into the perfect position. However, you will not fire while cloaked.
The base has a number of attributes, listed below. Upgrading one attribute may degrade another, so plan you upgrade path to suit your play style.

How do I uninstall the game?
I believe there is an option to uninstall in Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Wave Defence. If that doesn't work, try restarting the phone and trying again.
The game wont download (pro)
Almost all queries I get from people who say the Pro version wont download involve a disputed payment in Google Checkout. Please check for emails from them, or log on to your Checkout account to investigate.
Why does the game require internet access?
In order to support the uploading of hi score data to this web site.
How many levels does the game have (Pro)?
Unlimited. It's not a game you 'complete' just compete for high score / high level. I would consider level 64 to be an achievement.
