Steam Big Picture

Acerca deste jogo

Defense Grid: The Awakening is a unique spin on tower defense gameplay that will appeal to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it's up to the player to stop them by strategically building fortification towers around their base. Beautiful environments, spectacular effects, and a dynamic, engaging soundtrack bring the world to life. The controls are intuitive and the gameplay is deep — the special attacks and properties of each tower work together to provide many ways to succeed.
  • High Replayability There are approximately 8 hours of gameplay in the main storyline, and many hours of play in challenge modes that give players unique starting conditions and objectives. Each game level is very replayable, and can be solved in many different ways, with increasing rewards for improved efficiency.
  • Wide Variety of Enemies Over the course of the game, players battle 15 different enemy types that become increasingly stronger, and employ a variety of strategies in an attempt to bypass the player's defenses. As the levels progress, the enemies become tougher and more difficult to defeat.
  • 20 Unique Levels Defense Grid: The Awakening has 20 unique environments, each with a different placement of roads, tower build locations, and open areas to plan a strategy around.
  • Numerous Tower Options and Upgrades There are 10 different tower types with 3 levels of capability each. Each tower has unique trade offs that affect ideal placement, such as line-of-sight attack or ballistic trajectory fire. Some towers improve other nearby towers, and some are ideal at specific locations, such as a rear guard tower that unleashes a devastating attack.
  • Steam Achievements Successfully completing each level provides a bronze achievement award. Additional goals provide silver and gold awards for a particular level. A novice player may be able to survive the onslaught, but only an experienced player will be able to get all of the gold achievements.

Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack

Novos mapas, novas estratégias, novas experiências e novas proezas pelos criadores de Defense Grid
Defense Grid: Resurgence é o primeiro pacote de expansão para Defense Grid: The Awakening e contém 8 novos mapas extremamente trabalhados e equilibrados feitos pelos criadores do jogo. Em cada semana de Junho, durante quatro semanas consecutivas, um novo par de mapas será lançado fornecendo novos ambientes e experiências estratégicas, e exigindo novas maneiras de pensar para afastar os aliens e proteger a tua base. Cada pacote de mapas contém 2 mapas, cada um com um modo de campanha e 4 modos adicionais associados ao design desse nível. Novas proezas no Steam e tabelas de liderança estão associadas a cada um dos pacotes de mapas.
Defense Grid: Resurgence - Pacote de Mapas1
Service Interruption e Height of Confusion
  • Dois novos e desafiantes ambientes do Defense Grid são os primeiros dois lançados no DLC Resurgence. Uma estrada obstruída que vai diretamente para a base dá aos aliens uma vantagem significante em Service Interruption. Escolhe as tuas torres sabiamente! Height of Confusion tem uma grande área aberta, dando possibilidades sem fim! Constrói onde quiseres para defenderes a tua base!
Defense Grid: Resurgence - Pacote de Mapas 2
Risk Exposure e Roundabout
  • Não percas os próximos dois mapas da série Resurgence. Com Risk Exposure irás descobrir as tuas habilidades de defender duas bases independentes ao mesmo tempo! Espaços de construção de torres limitados irão testar as tuas habilidades à medida que geres os teus recursos na procura de um melhor posicionamento de torres. Em Roundabout, encontrarás várias possibilidades para criar caminhos e uma variedade de mudanças de elevação. Este mapa vai-te fazer a andar em círculos para conteres a ameaça alienígena!
Defense Grid: Resurgence - Pacote de Mapas 3
Urban Planning e Tactical Diversion
  • É o terceiro de quatro excelentes conjuntos de mapas na série Resurgence. Urban Planning é um ambiente denso com espaços de construção restritivos, obrigando decisões difíceis a serem feitas contra contínuas hordas atacantes. Em Tactical Diversion, examina a pequena plataforma coberta de neve e considera numerosas possibilidades. Mas prepara-te para o ataque aéreo!
Defense Grid: Resurgence - Pacote de Mapas 4
Kill Zone e Overflow
  • O último pacote da série Resurgence inclui mais dois novos ambientes, que de certeza irão desafiar o teu planeamento tático. Em Kill Zone, irás construir as tuas defesas perto da estrada em espiral para dentro, para fora ou então na plataforma ampla no meio? Talvez nas três! Mas precisarás de estar sempre alerta se quiseres travar os invasores. E Overflow tem várias plataformas ligadas entre si que irão trazer um número infindável de opções para virar os inimigos do avesso. Conseguirás manter a base segura?

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.

Amazingly fun tower defense... best of the genre in my opinion and still fun all these years later. Nice story line plot that enhances but doesn't get in the way. Eagerly awaiting DG2.

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.

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.

I can't say I found this game terribly interesting. It'sa VERY basic TD. There's no persistent upgrades, no customization of your loadout, not much story (even for a TD), no optional goals (no rewards for speed, extra cash, perfect no loss, etc.. In many maps you don't even get to choose tower location, the game only gives you a handful of platforms to build on. I've played better TDs for free on my phone. MUCH better ones.

The upsides are good graphics, lots of maps (if you do like it, you won't run out), and the AI helper is entertaining. His backstory (what there is) is far more interesting than the story you're playing (kill invaders, the end).

I bought it for 2.50 on sale. For that price, sure, get it. Don't buy it at full price.

One of the best tower defense games out there. Hypnotic gameplay with hours of alien killing labyrinth building. Easy controls and smooth design gives you ample time to create weapon grinders to chew up the aliens.

Extremely satisfying. Have you ever wanted to play a game but when you look through your library you see nothing that interests you? Here is the cure. This game never gets old for me. I keep re-installing it and playing it. It's August 2014 when I write this. I love doing all the challanges for each level. This game lets you design a death maze and then watch the devastation. looking forward for DG2 that comes out soon. Don't know how it could possibly be any better then this game.
