Godzilla Defense Force is the screen tapping base builder with a twist, you get to fight and collect giant monsters from the Godzilla Universe. This may sound like a walk in the park, but it is actually rather challenging. It proved to be so challenging that we made this guide to help you guys out.

Defense Force

The aim of the game is simple, defend your city from an onslaught of monsters. However, defending yourself from the likes of Godzilla from 1966 or Hedorah from 1971 is easier said than done. These giants pack a punch, so you’ll need good tactics to beat these icons.

But before we get into tactics there is one more aspect of Godzilla Defense Force that is worth talking about, the Codex. The Codex is a wonderful source of unique information regarding every monster you face.

I’ve always thought a good game doesn’t require the user to do much reading, but a great game rewards the player. I can’t say much about the greatness of this game, but reading up about each monster is strangely rewarding.

Tips, Cheats and Strategies

  • Keep an eye out. It’s easy to get distracted while you tap frantically to spawn as many troops as you can. An eagle-eyed player would notice that every now and again random events can pop up. These events include a UFO which drops X-nium, civilians that need rescuing and bonus attacks you can do to bosses.
  • Chose your cards wisely. Although you collect a wide array of monster cards, some of these cards are more useful than others. Some cards have a more powerful buff that lasts longer than a previous card. Whereas, cards like Godzilla ‘66 can deal a humongous chunk of damage to any enemy. It matters what cards you have in your selection, some have more notable effects than others.
  • Time Travel? When you get to rank five, you will travel back in time to get some artefacts. Artefacts are like bonuses, they can all be stacked together and provide abilities like extra damage. A downside to getting these bonuses is that you travel back in time to the start of the game, so you have to re-unlock the cities and fight the same bosses. The earlier you travel back in time, the less you lose.
  • I keep dying. It’s normal to fail a level in Godzilla Defense Force. It shows you are not strong enough for the boss you are facing. To combat this, click the icon that looks like a “G” in the bottom left, and upgrade what facilities you have as many times as you can. If you have a little amount of money, then watch an advert for the relief package.
  • Use Godzilla ‘66. The Godzilla from 1966 has been my favourite card for a while now. This card deals massive damage to a boss immediately, meaning all you need to do is spam as many troops as you can for 30 seconds to kill the boss. Without using this card, I would still be stuck on the same boss fights I cleared a while ago.
