Info over het 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?

A really addictive and fun tower defense game! Some DLC with new maps make the replayability even higher.
There are some odd design flaws though.

For example: Some maps let you put towers in a way to block off or form new paths for the aliens, however when all paths are blocked for the aliens, the alien will just go straight through the towers (flaw 1, shouldn't be possible to block their path at all).
When you blocked off the path and the aliens go through the towers, the game lets you know that at the moment when the aliens are already through and it's to late to respond to that! (flaw 2) it feels like a punishment for their design faults.

Anyway, if you take your time to plan where you put your towers this shouldn't be a problem. ;)
I picked the game up in a humble bundle and paid maybe just €0,50- , but it's definetely worth it's full price of €8,99 ;)

This is by far and away the best tower defense game I've played. The game is very simple to play, pick a tower type, choose where you want to put it, watch it kill aliens. The aliens are trying to steal power cores, your job is to kill the aliens before they can make off with them. You start with limited money, but gain more by killing aliens. The challenge comes from making the best tactical use of that money. You need to pick the optimum type of tower for the available locations to place them in. Some of the maps are cleverly designed to let you place towers and divert the path the aliens take to the cores. Choose wisely and your towers will kill lots of aliens, earn you more money for more towers, and the power cores will be saved. Choose badly and you will slowly be overrun and the cores lost.

All of the maps have massive replayability with different modes offering different objectives. Your scores are also ranked against everyone else who has played. Think you found the optimum way to play a map? Take a look at the highscores and think again! Scores are based on the number of cores you managed to save, the money you have left at the end of a map and the sale value of the towers that you have built. The less you have spent, the better your score will be. Getting the highest scores requires using the bare minimum of towers leaving you constantly on the edge of failure. Experiment, improve your tactics, watch your name rise through the ranks. There are literally 100's of hours worth of gameplay to be had from the main game, and 100's more from the DLC, which is all excellent.

I've played a lot of Tower Defenders in my time, and this one is unequivocally the best! The balance and learning curve are manageable, with just the right level of challenge for players. The Voice acting is way above expectations for this price level, and the script is both funny and tragic in places. Once you've completed the story, the journey continues in a wide array of DLC, which is reasonably priced and well-sized. Also the range of "Challenge" levels like Go back through this stage using only machine guns make you rethink a map and re-creates it for you. If you only play one TD game (and you should try everything once, except incest and folk dancing) make it this one.

Defense Grid is just about as good as it gets with Tower defence. Engaging level design, varied enemy types and intelligently put together waves, quite a few tower choices each with strengths and weaknesses and each able to absolutely dominate in specific situations. The story.... exists.... and the voice acting is above par. All around great game with a TON of content to the gaming dollar.

One of the best tower defense you can find out there, with an interesting score system, tons of levels and variants.
Reccomended if you like the genre.
