Chillingo’s installment this Wednesday is a once popular flash game called Steampunk Tower. If you have no previous knowledge of it, it is a casual tower defense game, where you control an assortment of cannons on a tower to shoot down incoming enemies. The core gameplay does not change much from the original Steampunk Tower, but developer has intentionally remade it to best fit the touch screen devices. If you are a fan of the tower defense genre, it can serve well as a time killer.
