INTRODUCING TOWER WARS SEASON 4!

Finally the announcement that you have all been waiting for, the official SEASON 4 start date!! Beginning TODAY at 11AM PST, you may once again queue up to battle it out for the Top 100 spots on the LIVE Season 4 Leaderboards! Additionally, there are a few changes coming with the start of Season 4 that we wish to share with you.

  • Achievements for placing within the Top 100, 50, etc will still continue to be awarded on the subsequent Season start (once you have played a Ranked Match).

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.

The mods were so much fun, so it's awesome that SuperVillain made an actual game to pretty much officially kick off the genre! Basically, not only you can set up your towers and maze to defend, but you also can send out your own armies to attack the other castle! Lots of units to unlock and upgrade by using an tech tree. It supports local hosted and ranked matches, so you can play with friends until you're ready to head out into a ranked match.

Game : 8.0/10

Lots of fun. If you like tower defense but want a vs option, or just a new dimention to "regular" tower defense its great! Not deep but it feels very different while still scratching that tower defense itch. I bought it on sale and its still got its hooks in my 10 hours in. Love playing it against my teens kids.

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.

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

This game is awesome. It is a tower defense game but you have to defend your castle and attack to your opponent at the same time. Also it has a great co-op part. You can play a 1vs1 game with your friend. Absolutely recommended if you love this genre <3

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.

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.

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.

Great game. Got it during 2014 Holiday sale because a friend recommended it. I would pay more than full price for it. I wish there were more games like it. It has a good tutorial. MAKE SURE YOU DO IT. The AI's are a good challange and help you get your skills up. Get for you and your friends, this is a must have!

Matchmaking/Multiplayer: 9/10
Co-Op: 4/10 ( Need much more level - and difficulty! )
PvP Seasons: 8/10 ( Good, but only 1v1 seasons? Pretty bad, when the game supports 2v2 and 3v3 )
Grahpics/Design: 8/10 ( Looks good, but devours the computer when you have a screen with full of towers+enemies )
Sounds/Music: 10/10
Maps: 10/10
Towers/Enemies: 8/10 ( Would love some more! )

Overall: 7/10

Addicting game for all gamer levels; however, I would say this is definitely for more of the hardcore Tower Defense players. Can get very competitive really fast inquiring about borderline rage quits (LOL). It has bit of a unique style of playing in hex placement tiles instead of free roam tower placement pattern. Towers have upgrades along with units, stats for units and stats for income. Objective is to destroy the other person's castle or Rook type building that contains mini defenses(where are upgradable too). Games can last up to an hour depending on how equal skilled you and your opponent are.
