Canyon Defense on MiniClip

I read about this game Canyon Defense on one of the blogs aggregator and decided to give it a try. It is a wonderful flash based game for a short 15 mins play. The game is hosted on Miniclip and has a short learning curve for those impatient peeps like me.

The basic mission of the game is to protect your people (i.e. lives) by building weapons around the path used by the invaders. Weapons come in different forms, and could be used against ground or air based enemies. After each wave of enemies, you would be rewarded with more gold that could be used to buy better or more weapons. New weapons and buildings are also unlocked along the way for more options, e.g. a new goo gun that slows down the enemy. As the game progress, you could purchase special buildings that allow for 'missiles' (area effect bombing) or 'walls' (obstructions) as benefits.

There are three maps for the player to choose from, and each map has three different difficulties (in terms of attack waves). Here's a few pics of the game in progress. The only thing I don't like about the game is the background music, a tad too noisy I feel.
