The objective is to clear as many levels as possible by popping balloons with your towers - with each increasing level, the balloon types get harder to pop. For every balloon that escapes from your terrain, you lose a life. When you lose all 150 lives, you lose. That is why it is called "Tower defense". In 'assault' play or battle mode, you could match against somebody and deploy sabotages in the fury balloon popping battles. The monkey towers which you chose at the start of the game and how you place / deploy them are crucial in w
