Bloons TD 6 (2007), the latest in a series of Bloons TD (Tower Defense) games, is a strategic puzzle game where you use various contraptions to pop balloons before they get to the end of the track. It sounds simple, but quickly escalates with faster-moving and more durable balloons to become a fast-paced test of skill.

You start off with an empty track and a small supply of money. With this money, you need to prepare for the onslaught by placing different types of monkeys and devices, each with different ways to pop the balloons. Strategic placement and combination of firepower is key as you look for the perfect location to pop the most balloons. For each balloon you pop, you get more money, which can be used to place down new defences or upgrade existing ones using a three-line upgrade system.

As you progress, the balloons become more durable, some even becoming blimps that require several hits to take down. You unlock new levels in which to play, and also a challenge mode called C.H.I.M.P.S. where most upgrades are locked. You can also team up with other players for a more collaborative experience.
