User review spotlight: Carmageddon (DOS). Released in 1997.

Genre: Tower defense

Group Description

Games in this group are a specific type of strategy games where the goal is to prevent enemies from crossing the map by placing various armaments on the board at the start of the round, which then attack foes when they are in range of the armament (also known as a tower). Building (or upgrading) towers often has a cost associated with it; money is accrued as enemies are destroyed. In some games the units are placed on a pre-designed board or maze, while in other games the goal is for the player to build the maze themselves using the towers.

Strategy games featuring Tower Defense mods (such as Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos) are not eligible for this group.
