Gem TD Warcraft 3

Well one of my friends recently brought me back into the engrossing world of tower defense. We played multiple maps, but my favorite by far was Gem TD. It is an interesting take on tower defense. It is similar to many by creation of a maze to send the creeps through before reaching their target, however they have to reach 6 different arrows in order before reaching the final position. In Gem TD, you have to lie out 5 gems per round, then you pick which one you want to keep. The other 4 become mazing rocks to help create your maze.

My first time playing I didn’t do great but I didn’t lose either. However now that I’ve played through 3 times, I have greatly improved my strategy and on easy, I have done 282,502 damage to the final damage test.

The map can be found here -

There is also a flash version of this game, which almost replicates it with very few differences. This can be found here -

Finally, I have made a checklist for towers in this game, because it does get very confusing what gems make which special towers.

The checklist is either in full color, color coded for ease, or black and white if you want to print it. If you want an Excel or Numbers format of this, please email me at
