There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great.

Relive Your Retro Gaming Past with Space TD
Do you remember when computer gaming was a simpler affair? You know, back when it was less about the graphics and gibs, and more about just defending some futuristic base from alien attackers? Well, lucky for you, XDA Forum Member llcdraco does as well, and he has just your fix with Space TD.
As its name implies, Space TD is a Turret/Tower Defense game, in which your sole responsibility is to defend your planet against a fleet of angry alien invaders. To do this, you place automated turrets below the would-be invaders, in hopes that they have what it takes to prevent the onslaught.
Due to the attackers coming from overhead, it differs from traditional TD-style games in that there is no set track for the assailants to come through. Rather, they fly towards your planet in as efficient of a flight path as they can. But armed with several types of turrets and a wonderful retro-inspired soundtrack, you are more than able to give them a run for their money.
Can’t wait to give this a shot? Head over to the game thread to defend your base!
