    Can you say addicting? Fieldrunners is the classic tower defense game that has awesome graphics, realistic sounds, and extremely addictive game-play. In Fieldrunners you don't defend a set path, rather you must construct your towers in such a way to force the bad things to take the most damage. The better the maze of tower defense the more the "land and air" soldier combatants get hung up and slammed by the towers over and over again. You earn money by progressing forward, allowing you to buy more towers and upgrade old ones. Along the way unlock maps, take on more complex challenges that test strategic planning. At the end of Fieldrunners you'll want more towers!

    What would happen if you were handed control over LA's air space during your coffee break? You are an air traffic controller - have fun!

But in this game, you don't need heading angles, flight rules or meteorological reports - because you're the man controlling it all. Just touch and drag the planes to their runway. The game starts just fine and calm, but as planes enter from every edge of the screen with more and more, the sky quickly becomes filled with aircraft, all traveling at different speeds with overlapping angles. So start stressing and you'll find out how much fun stress can be.

    It's all about the over thirty different weapons, pretty simple in this shooting game. The weapons include shells, missiles, cluster bombs, and nuclear weapons which blast huge holes in multiple landscapes. You may bury your opponents under a mountain, but then watch them escape using the excavator and right back again. And the cool thing is that iShoot allows you to edit game rules like how much health the tanks have, how much money you get per round, and which landscapes are enabled. The Weapon Editor function allows you to create, edit, and delete weapons. You can simply remove weapons you don't like, tweak the damage and price of existing weapons, and create brand new weapons from scratch.
