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 tells you nothing? Never mind, the principle is easily explained. Through swarms of monsters on a manageable (usually only large screen) map on a tortuous path from A to B. Because the critters B want to destroy, they may well advised not to achieve their goal. Your task is to build defense towers along the path, which then automatically fire on the advancing hordes.

With each mission of the campaign expanded Defense Grid: The Awakening game mechanics to at least one element, often several. Included is everything that has been proven in the genre. When the towers not only more powerful flamethrower, laser, missile or lightning-breathing Tesla coils sizzle the advancing hordes, but are also expensive auxiliary towers to choose from, which slow down briefly for instance opponents.

The first linear levels are becoming increasingly complex, offer soon crossroads and alternative routes and culminate in open plains where you have the enemy streams the direct route to the computer obstruct the fact that they force you through rows of labyrinthine tower possible detours. With the complexity of difficulty increases, and after no more than half of the 20 missions Defense Grid is extremely tricky. Then barely passes a way around it several times re-address the inserts to vary the building tactics and refine.

This created Defense Grid is not only unnecessary, detailed environments, but shows off especially with a spectacle effect. Explosions, laser beams and flashes burn to advanced cards from such a rich color fireworks that impressive, the whole screen sparkles and glistens (which sometimes comes at the expense of the Overview). So laminated Defense Grid simultaneously that not much is going on in the sterile Maps otherwise, but that does not matter anyway; prevails on the chessboard is not much of life.

Who Plants vs. Zombies liked or generally looking for a challenge for the little gray cells, with Defense Grid gets a sophisticated professional version of the exciting tower defense game principle. Despite the crisp degree of difficulty Defense Grid is highly motivating because it stimulates to try out, because it is always possible and because it introduces new gameplay elements resistant.

Score: 73 / 100

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.

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.

Overview: Tower Defense

The Good

+ The premise is a bit different than most tower defense games. Rather than the enemies reaching the end of the map, this game has the enemies collecting 'cores' from a specific point on the map and then moving towards the exit. Because of this , your strategy has to be a bit different when placing your towers. In addition the more resources you collect the more interest you earn, thus spending your resources to build/upgrade your towers may not always be the best strategy especially in the beginning of a level.

+20 Main missions and 28 DLC missions. Every map is completely different from the last, some maps have multiple entry and exit points, core locations, pathways. Every map almost feels like a new puzzle, trying to figure out how to make the optimal path to win.

+ The DLC missions are unique and fun. The best DLC levels is mixing the portal universe with this one. Each level is unique and provides an interesting twist to each level altering your strategy.

+ Every mission features a variety of different modes. The modes that cause you to rethink your strategy are probably the best ones. For example, one mode has the entry and exit points reversed, another you can only build level 1 towers, etc.

+ The game features a variety of different towers each one with a unique purpose. The type of tower and the placement plays a big role in the game.

+ Great graphics and effects for this type of game

+controller support

The Bad:

- Other than a variety of different modes per level, this game offers little new.

-Some modes can be very repetitive. Once you figure out what works in a level, you can play different modes with the exact same layout. However these modes are optional.

- The game feels like it was designed with the controller only in mind. Why can't I map every control function on the mouse?

This is the Tower Defense that separates the men from the boys. It's challenging, deep and extremely rewarding. Defense Grid will put the genre's main skills to the test: path designing, upgrading eficiency, weapon choice and pacing. There's tons of content in the main game and DLC. I found the sound and character design to be a bit generic but it's overall a great game.

You love tower defense then this is a game that you should definitely try it.
It is all little basic as the upgrades.
But makes the game certainly no less.

Story line is funny and certainly entertaining.
There are many challenges to achieve.
And if you like you're not so bored of this genre.

Overall I think this is one of the better tower defense games

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I haven't played many tower defense games, but it is clear to me that "Defense Grid: The Awakening" is a high quality example of the genre and a very good game in general. I recommended this game to a friend of mine. He currently has 101.5 in-game hours.

Be warned: It is addictive! This game will have you chasing Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals and the 87 achievements. I paid full price for this way back when (about $20) and it has been worth every penny. At it's current price of $9.99 you cannot go wrong. There is a reason that user reviews are "overwhelmingly positive." It's the kind of game you might uninstall after completing, only to eventually reinstall to complete more challenges.

The levels are presented in a nicely tuned progression of difficulty. The early levels are a great introduction for anyone new to tower defense. Aliens enter the screen and follow both prescribed and influenced pathways, along which you erect towers with various functions to destroy them.

The goal of the aliens is to steal power cores located at a central location and then escape the levels with them, usually retracing their steps although this can also be influence by the design of your defense. If all the power cores are stolen, the level is failed. Early on it was unacceptable to me to finish a level with even one missing power core. Striving for perfection is an enjoyable though sometimes maddening struggle, but satisfying when completed.

The presentation is very polished with a healthy variety of interesting aliens, of both walking and flying types. You may also zoom in on the action to get a more detailed view of the fight. The voicework, sound effects, and music are all satisfying. You have a "companion" in the game in the form of a voice (an artificial intelligence as I remember), sometimes helpful and sometimes not as much.

There is also a good variety of animated towers and in the levels where many different types are working together, the screen nearly resembles a fireworks display. It is VERY satisfying to find an effective defense and then sit back and watch the mayhem. Players also have access to a laser beam fired from space to wipe out an area of aliens. It may only be used a handful of times on any one level and takes time to recharge. This is very helpful for vaporizing aliens that have gotten past the defenses and are escaping with power cores.

I have no complaints with the controls at all. I was never fighting the UI. There is also a nice feature of the UI that gives a bit of warning regarding the types of aliens that are on the way. It's like a news channel "ticker tape" with icons for each type of alien. Also aliens do not attack towers in this game.

The DLC for this game is also worth the price as well. The four map packs are a good value for $.99 each. There is even a Portal themed DLC, "You Monster", featuring GLaDOS, who hijacks your UI's AI.

Bought this in the steam winter sale for small change. Heard good things about it so thought i would try it out. Forward 200+ hours, and yes the game is the best tower defence game i have played.
A lot of thought is needed and high scores mean building as latest as possible, which carries risk.

Im a casual gamer so to play with just a mouse is great while pressing F to fw time. great game. would reccommend highly if you want to lose 200 hours of your life. Might get DG2 now that i have 100%'d this...

Defense Grid is tower defense done correctly. The premise is simple you have "power cores" to defend against waves of an alien horde. You place towers to usher them to their ultimate demise. You can also control the path they take to the cores via the tower placement.

The Good
- Levels are very replayable. I find it enjoyable trying out different strategies and trying to top my score.
- If you start to lose the battle on a map you can use backspace to go back to previous checkpoints and try something new on the fly.
- Graphics are simple enough to understand which tower is which at a glance, but compelling enough to be interesting.
- A variety of levels with slightly different rules keeps it interesting. (two groups of cores to defend, separate exits, etc)

The Bad
- The voice of the AI character can get annoying over time.
