CityVille Invasion launches for iPhone and iPad, brings tower defense-style game play and minions together

CityVille Invasion, a tower defense style game, has just been released for both iPhone and iPad. You'll play the commander general that's tasked to stop Dr. Mayhem from conquering the world. CityVille Invasion is a joint effort by both Hasbro and Zynga.

Like traditional tower defense style games, you'll navigate your way through different combat maps equipped with several different weapons. While CityVille Invasion is free to download and play, you'll have the option to buy boosts and coins with real money via in-app purchase. CityVille currently includes 13 different types of buildings to construct and defend.
