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?

The break-out tower defence game that helped bring the genre into mainstream gaming, Defense Grid is still a stand-out example of TD done right. A clean interface and (relatively) smooth difficulty curve with a fiendish top-end make it an excellent introduction while ensuring perfectionists and score-chasers have an expansive leaderboard to climb as well. A combination of deeper mechanics such as interest-based resource generation and varying field-of-fire interactions across towers ensures things stay interesting for at least the duration of the campaign, and for those of us that get sucked in by a good system, a good many hours after its complete. Still worth the asking price nearly a decade from release, pick it up and give it a shot if your curiosity is piqued by the store page.

For a game with no protagonist other than a bunch of towers with guns, it's got a lot of character to it.

Brilliantly fun, well worth the price and highly addictive. I could barely stop playing this for days, and when I'd completed the campaign I was left wanting more. Highly recommended.

The tower defense game. Very fun and challenging with all the different modes. Recommend using a controller though because it was created for XBOX 360 and is a straight port.

If I had thoughts of re-playing all my old Steam games to get a clean sweep of acheivements, then Defense Grid is where it comes seriously unhinged. Get a gold medal on 35 versions of the same level? ARGH.

Actually it came unhinged at Portal. Trying to complete levels within time limits is just ARGH-ifying.

But I still logged 110 hours on this.

Awesome tower defense game, maybe the best I've found to date. The sheer number of maps and game modes offers many hours of gaming for a decent price.

There are a decent selection of towers, which offer different tactical options. There is also a good balance of maps where structure locations are fixed so the AI route is also fixed and others where you can arrange towers to make epic kill zones.

All up, if you like tower defense games, this should be considered a must have addition to your collection.

For me, it's a solid 8/10, rising to 9/10 if you are a die-hard tower defense gamer.

By far the best tower defense i have ever played. Tons of content.
The game allows for a ridiculous amount of customization, you have so many towers to choose from, and you will definitely have your favorites. There must be hundreds of ways to effectively crush the enemy.

combination of towers + tower placement and which towers you will upgrade first + the resource system (that gains interest depending on how much you have in the bank) gives you so many options for strategy.

each map, and there are a lot, will have different challenges and modes - that allow for huge replay potential. different layouts and enemy pathing has you thinking tactically about how to maze the aliens into oblivion. easy checkpoint system that lets you go back in time in set intervals, meaning a small error will not force you to restart from wave 1 if you are going for that perfect run.

Practice mode give you a ton of cash to perfect a strategy you want to apply once you play the map for real. Great voice acting for a tower defense. its just an amazing game.... I cannot think of a single fault for it. Enemies are varied wth nice animations. Towers look and sound good, upgrades improve their looks and fire effects.... its just obviously handled with a lot of care and love.

If you like tower defense - you would be hard pressed to find a better one than Defense Grid.
If you do, LET ME KNOW, because i would instantly buy that game too.

I highly recommend this game for yourself, or even as a gift to strategy loving friends.
This game is AWESOME.

Excellent tower defense game. If this genre is your thing, this one ranks reasonably high on my list. It is no GemCraft in terms of customization or depth but it certainly hits the spot for when you have a TD itch.

One of the best TD games around. Gameplay in general, towers, balancing - nothing to question here! Buy it, play it, enjoy it. Not only for TD fans - this game is genious.
Some special positive things i can mention:
- great graphics for a 2008 game.
- easy controlls.
- tons of maps and game modes.
- the difficulty increases steady but slowly - this is how it should be!

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 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.

As of this writing, this game is almost 7 years old. For perspective, it came out only a year after The Orange Box did. When it was first released, it was undeniably the best tower defense game in the world -- but that's not surprising, because its only competition was Desktop Tower Defense and a handful of other shoddy flash games that were starting to ride the trend.

A lot of time has passed since then, and hundreds of weird and interesting tower defense games have been released. So, is Defense Grid still the best? ...Honestly, I have no clue. I haven't played as many tower defense games over the years as I would have liked, and I blame it all on the quality and longevity of this one.

The people who made Defense Grid understand where tower defense came from. Everything about this game is built to look, feel, and sound like retro StarCraft, from the isometric view, to the color choices, to the tower types and damage types. Gun towers are basically bunkers of marines, inferno towers are bunkers of firebats, cannon towers are bunkers of ghosts, and so on. They’ve even borrowed some classic towers from other games, like the tesla coils from the Red Alert series. Even today, it still hits me with that old 2002-era nostalgia of searching for tower defense maps on Battle.net and that pumped feeling of starting the map with a full lobby of people (because, of course, you needed a full lobby to even have a chance!)

The biggest reason why Defense Grid is so great is because of its scoring system, which rewards even the tiniest improvements in performance with exponentially more money and score. It appeals greatly to the gamer's OCD, since the better you play the beginning of a mission, the more freedom you have to build deadly mazes for the remainder of the mission, the easier victory becomes, and the more often you can see your score skyrocket into the hundreds of millions. Fast-forward and checkpoint-rewinding controls make it simple to re-do every wave until it is perfect. It also creates an ultra-hardcore metagame with a massive curve of leaderboard scores, if you’re into that kind of competition. You’ll need to learn some really annoying advanced techniques if you want to break into the top 100 on any mission, or you could choose to compete in maps and game modes where the techniques don’t apply. Or you could simply choose to compete with yourself and your friends, or just aim for the pre-set gold medals. It’s really up to you.

I've got over 130 hours logged into this, and I'm finally coming down the home stretch of getting all the achievements. God, this game has a lot of content, thanks to over 4 years of continued support and expansion sets. The expansion sets are quite solid, too; at one point I thought I had found a strategy which works on any mission, but then the DLC campaigns came and changed all the rules, and made me rethink everything.

Is Defense Grid still the best? Probably not, and I will have a lot of tower defense games to explore once I’m done with this one. But one thing is for certain: this game is the sole reason why future tower defense games had to start trying new things, because it got the basics about as perfect as they can possibly get… at least for those of us who still occasionally see hordes of zerglings filing through mazes of bunkers in our waking dreams.
