Bringing you back to the battlefield against the evil machines Tiny Defense 2 takes the original basic adventure and transforms it into an impressive robot filled strategy game. Available to purchase on iOS devices Tiny Defense 2 is a must grab for fans of the Plants vs Zombies gameplay style.


For those unfamiliar with the formula (or the original Tiny Defense) you’ll be summoning upon your army of Minirobots to defend against wave after wave of Machines that want nothing more than your destruction.

Split into a 5 chapter story of 10 stages each (and 2 bonus missions) players start with a small pool of minirobots to summon into the fight with your energy reserves. With each stage the minirobots you have available will expand alongside an ever expanding Machine threat. Said Machines will spawn periodically from the left side of the map while you place your defences on the grid like map which is split into 5 lanes.

While basic starter units like the Fusor Bot (which generates energy for other troops) and the Gunner Bot can easily hold their own against the basic Smasher Machines you’ll need to also work in more unique units like the Radar Bot to your strategy once the Machines start to call their invisible units into battle.

Within each level of Tiny Defense 2 though there is more than enough room for multiple strategies and approaches to shine to ensure that you can call on your favourite units for each stage. Unlike other games in this genre in Tiny Defense 2 this also has a tangible benefit of improving on the units you use most through an experience system (awarded each time you place a particular unit).


This addicting upgrade mechanic will make you stretch yourself to use your favourite Minirobots across all stages and helps each level feel rewarding to beat. In addition a bolts system which is earned generously through play lets you upgrade Minirobots instantly or other elements of play such as your starting energy or health bar.

With the large number of core levels, an additional challenge mode and the huge number of upgrades Tiny Defense 2 is leagues ahead of both the original experience and the other options in this space.


  • 100 core levels plus challenge mode and special missions.
  • Upgrade your units with either bolts or experience.
  • Great variety of Minirobots and Machines in each level.
  • Varied level designs to keep the game challenging and interesting.
  • Available on iOS.
