Defend your towers in a world of trash in Junkworld TD


Junkworld TD is now on Apple Arcade
Junkworld TD is a funny and offbeat tower-defense game.

Junkworld TD players deploy towers, use special units and gadgets, and train amazing heroes to survive the mayhem of post-apocalyptic tactical battles.

The quirky action title is the latest addition to the Apple Arcade subscription gaming service.

This is a tower-defense game (obviously), a very popular genre. It’s distinctly different from RPGs in that the focus is on fending off waves of enemies, not going out looking for a fight.

Junkworld TD players “command the resourceful Scavenger clan as they survive the mayhem of epic post-apocalyptic battles,” says the developer, Ironhide Irl. “Deploy your strategy by using towers, special units and gadgets, as you train amazing crazy-looking heroes.”

Expect serious action, but for not much else to be serious. One of the heroes is outfitted in garbage can armor, for instance.

The game boasts 16 towers with special skills. There’s everything from hydraulic drills to mechanical bulls. Plus one that turns enemies into… sheep?

There are nine heroes to defeat strange and unexpected enemies. And four hostile terrains to fight on.

Junkworld TD is available now in the Apple Arcade section of the App Store. It’s playable on Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, and game controllers are supported on all platforms.

Ironhide Irl is clearly a fan of Apple’s gaming service. Subscriber can also play four other entries from the company. That includes the RPG Legends of Kingdom Rush, and multiple tower defense games in the Kingdom Rush series.

Access to these — and over 200 more — comes with a $4.99-per-month subscription to Apple’s gaming service. And one subscription works for up to six family members. And there are never hidden costs in the games, as in-app purchases are forbidden.
