Just Updated



THEY'RE HERE! Our BRAND NEW SINGLE PLAYER Mode is LIVE!

Face off against a collection of the finest artificially intelligent opponents ever assembled...to play this game in particular! If you or a friend have been waiting for more Single Player features, now is definitely the time to get in on Tower Wars!

Key Features

  • All-NEW Single Player mode added! Challenge 10 unique AI bots with various skills and tactics!
  • New Steam Achievements for playing against and defeating the new AI bots!
NOW GET TO STORMING THOSE CASTLES!

Previously Updated

Introducing the all new co-op mode!

High above the clouds, there drifts a sad, derelict remnant of a once lively little drifter town... it was ruthlessly attacked by pirates intent on sacking the plump little plum in the sky, but in their greed they sank their own ship under the weight of the first load of plunder! A tempest wind soon thereafter arrived, driving the now un-manned island town far from where it had laid anchor for trade. The inhabitants had hastily fled during the pirate attack, but in so doing left all of their goods, munitions, and rum.... LOTS OF RUM. During one of his many pleasure cruises in his glorious, kingly dirigible, the KING happened to stumble across the abandoned stockpile. He immediately seized the derelict under his sovereign authority, claiming the rum (and other less important supplies) for his own reserves. BUT!! Providentially, the surviving pirates of the pillaging snafu had regrouped and showed up just shortly after the KING set up base, and thus found their long-lost gem in the hands of a belligerent, crown-waving buffoon. Having tasted some of the finest rum of the barrels his fat arse now reclined upon, their course of action was clear... This meant WAR!”

Key Features

  • Join up with your friends to protect the rum in the new 1-3 player co-op map, Royal Rum-Bowl!
  • Adjust and rebuild your maze after enemy pirates bomb, smash and utterly destroy your towers with randomized enemies and events!
  • Compete in 3 new leaderboards for solo, duo and trio scores!
  • Enjoy other goodies like a new environment, achievements and music!
  • Featuring the new and improved steel plate hex, state-of-the-art craftsmanship of the KING’s own forges! Unfortunately, it has virtually no affect on towers built upon them... it simply has the appearance of being tougher.
Join the fight!

An all new editor makes it easy to create new battle maps, characters, and mods. Steam Workshop makes it easy to share those creations and for others to find, download, and play them. Check out the Tower Wars Workshop to get started.

I felt in love with Tower Wars concept since the very first WMW (Wintermaul Wars), which was just a simple UMS (custom map) for Warcraft 3 game. And this was around ten years ago, around 2004-2005. Long time ago...

Tower Wars is a strategy game. It combines classical TD (tower defense) elements with a war elements, where YOU are the one who sends the troops, not the AI. It's like taking old WMW concept and creating a game based on that. And, I must agree that it ended pretty well.

It's not an easy game, tower wars requires from you a tactical thinking and the willing to practice... much. By playing this title, you'll need to balance between the offense and the defense, You'll need to decide whether to upgrade existing towers, or create new ones, between upgrading existing troops and training new ones.

What I can say about this title... It's good. Graphics are nice, it's well balanced game, I didn't find any bigger issues, and I can really recommend this game. If you've ever played a tower defense game, and you liked the concept, you'll like this one even more. If you did not, I'd still give it a try, because game is awesome and building a strong defense is as important as attacking the enemy with strong troops.

9.5/10

I was looking for a tower defense game wherein I could sit and play the game for more than an hour and not get bored. I found Tower Wars on sale and immediately grabbed as I'm a fan of worlds created with hexagonal terrains put together.

The game resembles Tropical Tower Wars, a custom WarCraft III map that I used to play. Instead of having a fixed pathways and a place for your towers, you create the maze yourself. The world is made out of hexagon tiles separated into different islands. Three gold mines for each team are randomly placed in the map to create diversity for your mazing strategies.

Controls
[+] Not much to say on this as the game uses the most conventional controls for any Tower Defense game. In the time that I played I haven't felt any type of discomfort even once.

Graphics
[+] As I said before, I am a fan of game terrain made out of hexagon tiles.
[+] The maps for different modes was well made allowing different kinds of strategies to be put to use.

Balance
[+] The bots are good for people who are learning the game. They start from easy and eventually gets more challenging as you defeat more of them one by one.
[+] The game gives you freedom on how you want to handle your mazes.
[+] It also has a route detector to make the game eye-friendly despite building a big amount of towers and stops you from messing up in case you get confused in your own maze.
[-] Although it gets challenging as you pick higher level of bots. The only difference you see is the rate of how fast they upgrade their towers, and mines. They keep recycling the same strategy over and over.

Others
[+] Variety of maps to choose from.
[+] You can either play defensive, offensive, or balance depending on how you wish to control the game.
[-] Few people are playing and on that "few people" even fewer people plays Human vs. Human. Thus, expect long queues when you want to play multiplayer.

Great Game! Head to Head Tower Defense in its purest form. Steep learning curve, highly competitive. Games can take a long time once you and your opponent both master the game. I only ever play unranked since ranked is so highly competitive that I don't stand a chance. Hosting games for my friends and family in a more casual environment this game is spectacular. I truly enjoy this title. We play it madly for a few days at a time then return to it one or two months later and play it madly again. endless replayability when you have friends or family who also enjoy it. The closest comparison I can make to this title would be Swords and Soldiers which is also one of my favorite games, just far more casual than this one.

This is a tower defense game. It is a interesting type of tower defense there is a lot of cool and different features to this game. The multiplayer is very fun, skype recommended for easy back to back chatting on whats going on at that moment. The graphics are nice and the game is fun overall.

Not a bad game, but needs a good computer to run, and a really tanky computer for multiplayer. Fun, addictive, and good for people with some leftover cash and a great computer.

-8/10 Overall.

Although I've got a few Tower Based games, I have not really given them much of a chance.. Loaded this one up the other day and wow. Have thoroughly enjoyed playing. I did about 3 levels and it seems to have taken forever, ut I've enjoyed every minute.

Pro's
Plenty of upgrades, research, units and tech
impressive graphics, even when almost every inch of the level is covered in towers
Plenty of scope for the other levels, routes, etc (mines change places for planning)

Con's
Mines change places (?) still, makes ya think more :)

That's really it for this review. If you like tower games then you can't go far wrong with this one :)
9/10

I used to like this game... and then they came out with a single player game mode... and now i love this game! It was always fun, it flows well during gameplay, and equally matched players can have a really good time, and now if you wanna just relax and kick the crap out of some computer players you can! Definitely a great tower defense game for a great price, fully recommended!

Tower Wars is another fun while it lasted tower defense game... you'll play it for a while ... leave ... come back to it. This one has really good graphics and is set in a medieval/modern world. Narrator dialogue has the right amount of humor... new twists on weaponry & upgrades are also good. Multiplayer is also fun. The upgraded graphics in this tower defense game will tax a normal video card as is reflected in some of the comments in the community HUB. However, I have had no issues or crashes... the game looks/runs very well, but I am running a 4G video card :-)

I would recommend this game for anyone who enjoys to play/collect tower defense games... it's a good one to have in library.

On first glance you may not think this game isn't really fun. It is. I don't know enough about computer processing to explain the details you need to get this game to run smooth, all I can tell you is that it runs beautifully on my Windows Surface Pro 3. What I can tell you is that it is a whitty game that breaks the fourth-wall (For those of you who don't know:
The Fourth Wall is a term in entertainment when the character has a thought about the watcher, or user sometimes in the form of "I wonder if this is some kind of games and we are all just pawns" or the characters just outright acknowledge you as a player in a sense that you aren't apart of their universe) It can be quite fun, and is a good time waster if your at work and want two hours to kill. The singleplayer is mainly versing higher level intelligence bots, not much to it, but if your that type of person thats easy to please, and doesnt need complexity it can be really enjoyable. Also I do know it takes a long time to find a match in PvP. If you play with a friend it is better. Overall the fact that this game is a time-waster (in a goodway) and has achievements is great! I personally like to achievement hunt, but the fact that a smaller game with not so difficult achievements gives me a break, and its just interesting to see what objectives the game will amek you complete. However, if you are not good with focus, or multitasking I DO NOT reccomend this game for you as you will get frustrated with trying to build and upgrade defenses, also trying to make them into a maze. Dispatch troops, and upgrade that aswell. And finally trying to upgrade your gold mines and castles at the same time.

This review only concerns a compatbility problem with my netbook, as a reference guide for the developers and buyers.This game is not optomized to be compatible with my OS; I play on a Hewlett Packard Mini-Netbook 110-3500. It runs Windows 7 Starter, with 1GB RAM and a 32 bit op. system.

It originally opened in box format, and I was unable to choose some options to start any games, like when you need to re-calibrate a DS screen.

After finally getting in to options to see if there was a full screen format I was able to change the format, whereupon the game became even more broken. I was un-able to slide the mouse past a box area the size of my hand and then it zoomed in so far that I could only see a small portion of the main menu in a massively pixellated format.

I will be maintaining neutrality on up/down voting because I never experienced any actual gameplay.

CONCLUSION:
This game is not optimised for my version of Windows 7 on a Hewlett Packard Mini-Netbook 110-3500.

This is a fairly enjoyable game, though it admittedly takes a little getting used to at first for this is a tower offense/tower defense mix. Not only will you have to worry about managing towers and shaping your lanes, but you'll need to upgrade troops, que them up, and send them toward the enemy castle. The constant upgrading you'll be required to do to stay competitive, in addition to managing everything else, will keep you busy from start to finish. In fact it may even be too much for some people, though I personally enjoy it. Worth the $2 I spent during a Steam sale.

If you like Tower Defence games then you will like this. I'ts a pretty straight forward TD where you use tiles to try and "maze" the creeps with towers. The selction of towers isn't terrible and it is pretty fun at first. The matches tend to run on and on and on. I once had to just leave my game browser open and go to sleep during a match just to finish it. Some matches can take hours. My main problem with this game is matches tend to never. I'd say if it goes on sale buy it, if not maybe wait.
