Best Tower Defense Games for Mac

Want a great tower defense game to play on your Mac? Loved by casual and hardcore gamers alike, 'tower defense' is a type of Real-Time Strategy game in which you build towers to prevent your opponent from crossing the map and reaching the goal. Usually you are given an array of different towers to employ, each with unique upgrades and abilities (some attack many enemies at once, others might slow the enemy down).

I've gathered a list of the top 5 Tower Defense Games available on the Mac App Store, and one bonus pick. Have fun!

Tower Offense!

Anomaly Warzone is a reversal of the tower defense formula: instead of building the towers, you direct the attacking side. Choose the best squad and route to take your team safely through the enemy towers, and use your commander to keep your troops in fighting shape.

Great visuals and a unique take on the TD genre!
