Godzilla: Defense Force has landed on iOS and Android, and the time is now if you've ever wanted to do battle with kaiju, and even summon them yourself.

Humanity needs you. Alien forces are moving in and kaiju won't stop attacking. But using your ingenuity - and tapping skills - you can take them down. You just need to read this guide.

Tap for humanity

Godzilla Defense Force

What is Godzilla: Defense Force all about? Well, primarily tapping away at the screen, actually.

Tap, tap, tap away with multiple fingers to go as fast as possible. This isn't about quality touching, it's about quantity of touching. Insert a joke about my sex life here.

You will literally be tapping as fast as you possibly can in order to summon human soldiers and fight off the kaiju menace. It's a tough day for humanity. You can have them spawn automatically, but at an incredibly slow rate.

As you tap and summon, the humans will automatically attack the kaiju, giving you money which you can spend on new buildings and upgrades, making you more fearsome in the face of the kaiju chaos.

It's a bit like… Cookie Clicker? Tap a lot, make progress. But there are cards too, to summon attacks or give your humans a bit of a damage boost. Nice, but only necessary with tougher kaiju.

So, this game can get a bit repetitive, then? Yeah, I would say so. But nevertheless, tapping onwards will help you solve quests and defeat monsters such as Godzilla himself. Or is it Gojira?
