I'm working on a particularly tough level and I only get to choose a few Defenses. For a long long hallway, do Floor Spikes do more damage to the Heroes than Wall Blades?

One thing to note is that Floor Spikes can be disabled by Thiefs, Wall Blades can't. – Wilerson Jul 27 '12 at 16:31
A good point. I will prevent that by building Wall Blades behind the Floor Spikes, so that the thieves take damage or move on. – KatieK Jul 27 '12 at 18:18
The wall smasher spikes (can't remember their name now, as I'm without an iOS device for some time) are better, as they paralyze the enemies when they are hit. But maybe they aren't available for you yet. – Wilerson Jul 27 '12 at 18:35
@Wilerson - The Perforator? I'd love to use it, but it's not allowed on the challenge level I'm working on. – KatieK Jul 27 '12 at 18:37

Since wall spikes are invincible and can not be disarmed by thieves I'd say that they are the better choice.

You can however protect floor spikes by putting a defence (preferably wall blades or wall crusher, which can not be disarmed or destroyed) just before them, so whenever a thief tries to disarm the spikes he will get hit and stop disarming. As an added bonus, depending on what defence you put there, they will also be pushed back and have to pass your trap once more.

Also note that if you cover floor spikes thieves can not disarm them.
