Over dit spel

Defense Grid: The Awakening is een unieke draai op tower defense-gameplay die aan zal slaan bij spelers van alle vaardigheidsniveaus. Een horde vijanden is aan het binnenvallen, en het is aan de speler om ze te stoppen door strategisch verdedigingstorens rond zijn of haar basis te bouwen. Prachtige omgevingen, spectaculaire effecten, en een dynamische, meeslepende soundtrack brengen de wereld tot leven. De besturing is intuïtief en de gameplay is diep — de speciale aanvallen en eigenschappen van elke toren werken samen om vele verschillende methodes om te slagen te maken.
  • Hoge herspeelbaarheid Er zijn ongeveer 8 uur aan gameplay in het hoofdverhaal, en vele speeluren in de challenge-standen die spelers unieke begincondities en doelen geven. Elk spellevel is erg herspeelbaar, en kan op meerdere manieren opgelost worden, met verhoogde beloningen voor betere efficiëntie.
  • Grote verscheidenheid aan vijanden Gedurende de loop van het spel vechten spelers tegen 15 verschillende soorten vijanden die steeds sterker worden, en verscheidene strategieën gebruiken om voorbij de verdediging van de speler te komen. Terwijl je je door de levels heen werkt worden de vijanden steeds sterker en moeilijker om te verslaan.
  • 20 unieke levels Defense Grid: The Awakening heeft 20 unieke omgevingen, elk met een verschillende layout van wegen, torenbouwlocaties en open gebieden om een strategie rond te plannen.
  • Vele torenopties en upgrades Er zijn 10 verschillende soorten torens met 3 bekwaamheidsniveaus per stuk. Elke toren heeft unieke eigenschappen die invloed hebben op hun ideale locatie, zoals een zichtslinie-aanval of ballistisch pad-vuur. Sommige torens verbeteren andere nabije torens, en sommige zijn ideaal op bepaalde locaties, zoals een achterhoede-toren die een vernietigende aanval loslaat.
  • Steam-prestaties Het succesvol voltooien van elk level levert je een bronzen prestatiebeloning op. Verdere doelen leveren je zilveren en gouden beloningen op voor een bepaald niveau. Een beginneling kan dan wel misschien de aanval overleven, maar alleen een ervaren speler zal alle gouden prestaties weten te bemachtigen.

Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack

New Maps, New Strategies, New Experiences, and New Achievements From the Creators of Defense Grid
Defense Grid: Resurgence is the first premium expansion for Defense Grid: The Awakening and is made up of 8 new highly polished and balanced maps from the original creators. Each week in June over four consecutive weeks a new pair of maps will be released providing new environments and strategic experiences and requiring new ways of thinking to beat back the aliens and protect your cores. Each map pack contains 2 maps each with a campaign mode and 4 additional modes associated with the design of that level. New Steam achievements and high-score leaderboards are associated with each map pack.
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 1
Service Interruption and Height of Confusion
  • Two new challenging Defense Grid environments are the first two released in the Resurgence DLC. An obstructed road to the core housing gives the aliens a significant advantage in Service Interruption. Choose your towers wisely! Height of Confusion has a wide open surface, making for endless possibilities! Build anywhere you want in your defense of the power cores!
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 2
Risk Exposure and Roundabout
  • Don’t miss out on the next two maps in the Resurgence series. Risk Exposure will allow you to discover your ability to defend two independent power core housings! Limited build spaces will test your skills as you divide your resources to discover optimal tower placement. On Roundabout, you will be faced with numerous possibilities for pathing and a variety of elevation changes. This one will have you going in circles to contain the alien menace!
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 3
Urban Planning and Tactical Diversion
  • It’s the third of four great map packs in the Resurgence series. Urban Planning is a dense environment with restrictive build spaces, forcing difficult decisions against continuously attacking hordes. In Tactical Diversion, survey the small, snow covered platform and consider numerous possibilities. But be prepared for the aerial assault!
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 4
Kill Zone and Overflow
  • The final installment of the Resurgence series includes two more environments sure to challenge your tactical planning. In Kill Zone, will you construct your defenses near the spiral road in, the spiral road out, or the open platform in the middle? Perhaps all three! But you’ll need to be on your toes to deter the invaders. Overflow has numerous connected platforms that will provide countless options to turn back the enemies. Will you be able to keep the cores safe?

Tower defense at its best. Being able to place your towers in such a way that it forces the baddies to take longer paths is extremely enjoyable and challenging.

Key features:

- Block baddies just as they're getting near your cores, forcing them to re-route.
- Bounce a train of baddies back and forth between two paths by repeatedly opening one and blocking the other.
- Unspent money earns interest so if you build just the towers you need, you'll have even more money later on.
- Create "kill zones" with your most powerful towers + slowing towers + bonus money towers to maximize efficiency.
- Cool story with some great DLC (The Portal cross-over DLC is top notch)
- Alternate modes/achievements will keep you playing for a long time

This is the best defense game I have played. The game mechanics and balance are amazing when compared against other offerings in the genre. Even after a few years, the graphics still hold up, the story is still fresh and matches the sci-fi world it was created for, and the voice acting is top quality. There is a fair amount of DLC available, but even without it the levels still hold a great deal of re-playability. Also, if you are into achievements, this game has you covered. You can even compare run scores versus your friends.

Got this game as a Steam deal and I must say I was utterly impressed by it and I would definitely say it's worth the standard price. It's a truly big game, packed with everything one could ask for in this genre.

Defense Grid takes the tower defense genre to the next level. I liked every aspect of the game. Level design, tower design, tower diversity, enemy types, economic system, soundtrack, effects, difficulty level, extra playable modes, the fact that tower placement shapes the aliens path. Everything is designed very carefully and delivers a perfect playing experience.
I got all achievements and I'm still playing to earn the gold metal on every single mode of every level.

I admit that the first time I played DG I looked down on it because it looked like a "small" game. That was on a friends computer before I finished the main campaign. Then I played it again a year later on my brothers computer and finished the main campaign again! Finally, this summer, I got it for myself and finished it again, plus every expansion that was available.

I'd like also to note that the voice of Jim Ward, who voices the AI assisant, is a big plus for the game. It gives you the feeling you're together into the fight, with a person that shares his personal moments with you, even his craving for raspberries!!

The Containment, You monster, Resurgence and Borderlands expansions add greatly to the game, in playable levels but also in the story.

And above all else is the Strategy. You may beat easily a level the first time, but it's certain you will come up with a better plan the second time you play the same level. And different game modes (like "out of bullets" or "shredder") will force you to adopt a completely different approach to beat the level. And all of this is done by placing just 10 different types of towers on those tiles. The game depth is incredible.

I give this game a 100% with honors! An excellent idea, a perfect design into a superb game.

1. You can kill time and aliens at the same time.
2. Single player - cause others people are scary.
3. A button for speeding things up... something the DMV needs desperately.

I remember playing this years ago on Wild Tangent, long before I switched to Steam, and it's still just as fun as it was then, maybe even more now that I know what to expect.

Defense Grid is among the best you'll find in the Tower Defense genre, and rightfully so. This game has a tantalizing blend of simplicity, planning, general enjoyment and even graphics. One of the largest pluses to Defense Grid is that it allows you to progressively shape the path your alien foe take. You can also set up "kill zones," places where you concentrate your best towers and where most of the killing happens, hence the name.

Another huge twist in Defense Grid is that your enemies have to go to a central hub to take a power core, essentially hitpoints. If you kill an alien who is holding a core, the core will progressively float back to the hub unless another alien grabs it. This makes strategy much deeper than "don't let them get to the end."

Your AI friend who is booted up in the prologue is your constant companion, giving you tips and commenting on how you're doing or what's going on (this has saved my ♥♥♥ many times when I was focused on improving outer towers and he told me that aliens had their grabby little hands on a core, and they wouldn't left the map with it if my AI friend hadn't told me in time).

Another great, possibly unintentional twist is that your AI friend has a British accent. This somehow makes his warnings more spoken and his cheers more cheerful, plus it sounds so classy when he says "bloody hell."

Some maps also have multiple levels to them, where aliens have to go up in a spiral to get to your cores. This opens up a huge amount of possibilities for towers that help cover multiple levels.

Overall, I'd have to say Defense Grid is one of the best if not the best game you'll find in the Tower Defense genre. Your Tower Defense collection can't be complete without this game. Definately get this if you're into Tower Defense.

Simply put, this game is awesome, and possibly the best tower defense game I’ve ever played. I love the quick nature of levels, and the thrill of feeling like a pro when you end level with loads of money left over. The range of abilities of the towers makes each level unique. Will you slow a pack of aliens, in a gauntlet? Or maybe zap them over and over with a laser... either way, very fun.

At the end of the day, I'd give this game an 8/10. Game play is awesome, and the quick nature makes it easy to pause and get some water. I do wish you could level a tower up more than 3 times. Additionally, I found the menu a teeny bit clunky.

Is this the best Tower Defense game there is? Probably.

It has fairly simple rules so it's easy to get into. The difficulty is all in the strategy and there is a steady learning curve.

There are plenty of tower types with specific strengths. The map designs make utilising this array of towers effectively a challenging puzzle. Highly recommended. Now onto DG2...

A very solid tower defense game with some basic maze building. Widely considered one of the best in the genre when it comes to standard TD.

Defense Grid is one of the best tower defense games ever made. It doesn't deviate much outside the norms for the genre - you accumulate funds over time by killing enemies and gaining interest, and then use these funds to purchase and upgrade towers around the path(s) which enemies take while trying to steal your cores. Successive waves are more difficult, and in some levels you actually build the path yourself by blocking their ability to progress with your towers.

Later levels are quite challenging, there's a wide variety of towers, and there's also multiple modes which can add different twists to the gameplay. It's extremely well balanced, allowing for multiple play styles to come up with valid combinations which can be effective.

Any fan of the genre should own this game, and it also makes for an excellent introduction to what tower defense games can offer.

While I find the camera and control much easier to wield on the console version (which is an oddity for this type of game) it doesn't detract - much - from the home computer version of one of the best tower defense games of all time.
Rarely does another TD game even approach the level of Defense Grid, much less attempt to surpass it.

One caveat is that you have to stick with it for quite a few levels before everything is available to you. This is not uncommon in TD games, but I've known folks who were put off by it.
