Garden Rescue is a tower defence game available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. As the name suggests the game has you defending your own garden from a variety of pests in good old tower defence style.


It’s time to defend your garden from a variety of insects in Garden Rescue, your once peaceful garden has come under siege from huge masses of insects that would love nothing more than to devour your beautiful and tasty garden. This is where the Garden Rescue squad comes in to save the day by leading a team of green defenders to prevent the insects from gaining entry to the garden.

Gameplay in Garden Rescue is what you would expect from the genre with a variety of insects (ants, bugs, beetles, bees) following a set path in order to reach your tasty garden full of strawberries. Along this path the player can build a variety of plant based defences to deal with the threat.

While early levels are very easy affairs and can be won without much thought the later levels in Garden Rescue are a real challenge. The rate that you gain new plants and the rate that new enemies are introduced is very well paced in Garden Rescue so that just as you master a strategy you’ll have to change your approach completely. The game also adds plenty of obstructions and multiple entry points as you advance to keep you on your toes.


Best of all is the multiple (3) difficulty levels available in Garden Rescue which means it’s accessible to fans of the genre with all skill levels and is also a great way for newcomers to hone their tower defence skills by working their way through the difficulty levels.
