Well if you have a defined path and using world i would use Waypoint. Its easy to see on the map and setup. Super easy to get position with it as well

It is a 2D game not a 3D game

same rule still applies, waypoints even if they have 3D coordinates can be used in 2D.

that or you can use EE's 2D pathfinder but you would have to map screencoordinates to pathfinding coordinate and manually block most of the map.

Ye pathfinding needs more tunning and is a bit more complex
It really comes down to if you want only a define road use waypoints if ennemies will go thru holes inbetween towers then use pathfinding
