A while ago, I had come across this Flash game called Tower Defense. The idea of the game is to put up guard towers along a path to the castle to prevent enemy attackers from killing your citizens. It was fun but got frustrating as the levels wore on because the income didn't keep up with the increasing strength of the attackers.

Then, a couple of days ago, I came across Protector, a game based on the same principles but with an RPG-style twist. It's actually pretty awesome! I have to admit, for a Flash game, it's quite polished with a tutorial mode and everything. Here's a screenshot of the game in action:

I find that console games have gotten too complex to appreciate. They try to create an immersive experience but most of the time, I just want a quick fix so I can relax. Sure, there are first-person-shooters, but they're all about the same and they get pretty boring pretty fast. I have a feeling that the success of the Wii and its throw-back to the classic, simple games of the 90's show that there's still demand for quick gaming.
