They say that the best defense, is a good offense. Here at the as of yet unconquered HQ of Silvergames.com we see things a little differently. To that end we've put together the most challenging and entertaining Defense Games to show that sometimes the best defense can in fact be found in defending things effectively.
Defending a place or a person from attacking enemies is a very common motif in a great number of games. Be it in the form of escort missions or by putting the player in charge of a building or structure, that is under threat from enemies. Defense games focus on this part and build all their challenges and gameplay complications around it. This can mean scrambling for resources as a horde of zombies rushes towards your fortifications. Sometimes it means shooting invaders from afar with your archers, catapults or even spell slingers. But it is not enough to simply kill those who wish you harm, sometimes you must also make sure that the person or the object you're protecting, actually survives the entire ordeal. Despite being a seemingly simple idea, this genre of games has a great variety of challenges to keep you on your toes.
So man that tower, load up that trebuchet and stock up on your survival kits, these defense games are all about pushing you into a corner and it will be up to you to keep from being overwhelmed and beaten by enemy forces. All this and more you can find here for free, without downloads or registration. Have fun!
