Mechanically, Bloons plays a lot like other tower defence games. You place down monkeys who each do different things, and an endless stream of different balloons comes charging at you on a set path. You’ll then upgrade your monkeys using resources generated from structures you place down, and from there, the game ramps up in difficulty to some potentially insane degrees.

And when I say insane, I don’t mean simple challenging stuff. We’re talking full-on cannot see the screen at all types of levels where all you can do is rely on your towers to take care of the work while massive airships and huge armoured balloons storm your gates. It’s absolute insanity once you get to the late game, but it does require some grinding to get there.

Frankly, Bloons TD 6 is probably just the best tower defence game ever made. But don’t take my word for it! If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you’ll be able to download the game for free at either of the links below this article!
