Prepare to get addicted with Fieldrunners 2 for BlackBerry 10

Ok, I'll admit it - I'm addicted to this one. Fieldrunners 2 for BlackBerry 10 has to be the best tower defense style game to date. I've not really been a fan of this type of game in the past but it looks like that has now changed. I didn't get around to playing the original version on another platform and I can now see I was missing out - this one is gorgeous.

Each of the levels are unique and you'll need to place your weapons strategically to ensure the Fieldrunners can't escape to the end of the path. You have three main weapons at your disposal - a machine gun turret, one that slows the bad guys down and a missile - all of which can be upgraded. As you destroy the Fieldrunners you'll earn cash and you will need this in order to place more weapons. As you'll see in the video, each weapon costs a different price and you'll also need to use money to upgrade their strength. 

There's a whole host of enemies - some on foot and some in vehicles, so depending on what's on-screen will depict how much fire power is required to destroy it. There are some additional weapons you can buy at the end of each level - which include air strikes and explosive traps. 

Up at the top right of the display you'll see a heart shaped icon and this contains the number of Fieldrunners that are allowed to escape. If more than that amount get past your guns it will be game over. As you'll see below there's a vast array of styles of level which adds some nice variation to the game. This reduces the game getting repetitive. 

Everything about Fieldrunners 2 is awesome. The graphics rock, the sound effects are beautiful and the game play is as smooth as can be. If you have three bucks spare I would strongly urge you to give this one a go, but don't blame me if you can't put it down! 

The game is available for all BlackBerry 10 handsets, although due to screen size I think you'll get the best experience with the Z10 for sure. In fact, if you play it on the Q10 or Q5 feel free to let us know how things are in the comments.

Prepare to get addicted with Fieldrunners 2 for BlackBerry 10


Stop with all the dumb games. Turning the BB into an iPhone. How about getting the bb10 to work first before game apps.

I agree. But it's not the developer's fault.
I wish to see more and more productive apps.
Also, we need to remember that games are driving force of phone sales among so called teens.

Thinking that games only matter to teens is part of the same mindset that led BBRY to its current troubles.

This is how you CB10, son!

I purchased it but it is not running on my Z10 :( I am looking forward to the day when it will run (probably with 10.2).

Do you have a STL100-1 device? It doesn't work on them for many people. Hopefully they fix it soon. Many including me can't play it yet. It does work with 10.1 though

Why did BlackBerry release a device with several skus, one of which seems to be incompatible with virtually everything.

Not a flaming complaint. Not trolling. Just a legitimate question. I'm sure there is some reason

This looks great, but I think the best tower defense game is Tower Madness. Unfortunately I tried contacting the dev, and they are only working on the Android version at the moment :(

downloaded and works great on my Z10STL100-1/

it has very good reviews. i kind of like it better than taptu. is crackberry on flipboard?

all this major app developers get on the social bus.

you cant be a social app if you limit your viewing. look at bbm, now it's really gonna be social.

shazam? instagram? netflicks? banks?

go native!®

I might give it a try but the best tower defense on the Z10 right now is GRave Defense HD, I loooove this game.

Stop this game epidemic.... hate this shit... I thought I bought a real phone not s toy

The reason BlackBerry is where it is today is because for too long it listened to jokers like you and the world left them behind... and rightfully so. the phone can do both... it's both a tool and a toy... that's where the world has moved to.... Y, cause serious people play as well.... mind blowing I know.

Even the old man Mccain play poker on his iphone during senate hearing. My only qualm is Iphone for a US senator? Seriously? This guy was almost president once. chills...gave me chills.

Play it on my Q10 all the time, runs great. Only problem is the finish button is hard to hit sometimes.

Addictive is an understatement. Game is great. Very, very smooth on my Z10 (although I am running 10.2).

Wtf not available. Is BlackBerry make different device? Is stl-100-1 for stupid people? Same price but different inside. This model make trouble a lot. Hate Z10 love iPhone when BBM come.

there is social integration on this game. Not Scoreloop (which I don't like), but Facebook, and this is really great. I have posted on my walls my Fieldrunners 2 achievement !
