There are four stages in Pixi Tower Defense, all which are playable at the start of the game. Upon selecting one stage, the game brings up a tutorial before the actual game commences.

The goal is to defend the base tower by selecting an adding defense towers to the grid. Enemies travel along the path in waves, which are initiated after a set amount of time passes or by clicking "Next Wave" at the player's discretion. The game is beaten when the player defeats all twenty-five waves of enemies.


Enemies in Pixi Tower Defense move along the path at different speeds. Their health values can be seen when they are taking damage. Groups of enemies come along the path per wave that is introduced. Defeated enemies earn the player money they can use to buy or upgrade their towers.


Towers can be selected and placed on the grid when the player has acquired the minimum amount of money necessary for purchasing. They can be placed on any square not occupied by another tower or an obstacle. Each tower, when hovered over, has a radius of alert that allows them to attack as enemies cross into it.

The cost of each tower varies depending on the towers the player has purchased, and the amount of money the player has earned. Players can also upgrade their tower at a fixed cost per level, where 5 is the maximum. Upgrades allow the towers to have a farther shooting range and also increase their damage.

Base tower


The base tower at full health

The base tower is found at the end of the path and has no attack or defense mechanism. If enemies reach the tower, they constantly run into it until they are killed. The base tower's health starts at 50 and will decrease rapidly as enemies run into it. Cracks can be seen on the dome as the base tower's health starts to deplete. If the tower's health reaches 0, the game is over.
