_Bloons TD 3_ is yet another installment in the series of tower defense
games. As in the previous installments, the player must place towers around
the track to pop each wave of balloons before they reach the end of the track.
The towers include: dart-throwing monkeys, tack shooters, boomerang-throwing
monkeys, freezing ice towers, cannons, and a rapid-fire Super Monkey. New to
this installment is the “spike-o-pult” tower which launches giant spiked balls
that can mow down a line of bloons, as well as a “monkey beacon” that improves
the capabilities of towers within its range. Furthermore, in addition to the
“road spikes” and “glue” items that can be placed on the track, the player can
now place explosive pineapples to blow up balloons.
The balloons come in several different colors, with higher classes of balloons
moving faster and turning into weaker balloons once popped. New to _Bloons TD
3_ are ceramic balloons which take several hits to wear down, and the
M.O.A.B., a zeppelin with a lot of health which acts as a boss and explodes
into several ceramic balloons once destroyed.
Several different levels are available, and there are three difficulty levels.
