Towering Inferno
Fieldrunners originally appeared on the iPod Apps store and was favourably received. The Tower Defence game has been changed slightly for the PSP release, replacing touch screen controls with the PSP buttons, adding to the graphics and putting in extra levels but it still remains true to its roots.

In the Field
It’s certainly a nice looking castle defence game with the difference being that the enemies don't just come along a set path, you actually have to guide them away from the exit by placing the towers to make a path. Most other games in this genre have the paths already set. It adds a new element of strategy to what is fast becoming an already over-stretched genre.

This was all Fields…
Graphically, Fieldrunners is one of the nicer looking Mini games, showing off some of the PSPs graphical flair but at the same time making things functional enough to see what’s going on at all times. It’s very futuristic looking which sets it apart from most of the other Tower Defence games out there. The elements all come together to make it look quite polished and certainly seems to be an upgrade on the iPod game.

Running for Cover
While Fieldrunners is not quite as polished as something like Pixeljunk Monsters, it’s certainly a very good Tower Defence game for the price. If you love these sort of games and you’ve finished PixelJunk’s game then Fieldrunners is well worth a download.

My Score: 8/10
