- Tower Defense
To play, you’ll need –
- Download games here
- To install Excel 2010, hot off the press last week. You can get a free trial here. The games use features that are new to Excel 2010, so they won’t work in older versions.
When you open the files to play, don’t forget to enable the macros.
Here’s a video of the two games in action:
In the next two blog posts, we’ll explain how we made these games.
