About This Game

Super Sanctum TD is a retro-styled Tower Defense game that focuses on strategy, customization and replayability. Build advanced mazes and construct powerful towers to prevent alien hordes from reaching the Core! When the aliens swarm your maze and everything seems lost, use active abilities like Air Strike and Freeze to tilt the battlefield to your advantage!

Strategy and skill are leading principles of Super Sanctum TD. Carefully choose your loadout of towers and active abilities before each level to make sure you can handle everything that will be thrown at you. Each battle is rewarded depending on your performance, and you can use these rewards to gain access to Perks that let you tweak and specialize your strategies even more!

  • Carefully plan your maze to master the game on all difficulties.
  • Towers like Gatling, Flamer and the Automatic Crowd Pummeler, all with their own individual strengths.
  • Intercept enemies from reaching the Cores with active abilities like Smart Bomb and Gravity Shift!
  • Vast perk system that lets you specialize specific towers, abilities, and more!
  • Prove yourself as the ultimate Core defender by defeating the game on all difficulties and game modes.
  • Square up against the best for a spot on the leaderboard by putting your deadliest strategies to the test in Survival Mode!

Super Sanctum TD has recently recieved a major overhaul with a revamped UI, new perk system and rebalanced gameplay!

Super Sanctum TD is a suprisingly well-balanced, challenging tower defense game. The 8-bit throw-back graphics conceal an exceedingly tightly crafted game that is both enjoyable and, unlike most tower defense games, it has tense moments of agonizing decisions since it has bevy of immediate effect super-powers that you can deploy occassionally.

I admire this game for it's design and I am here not as much to write a review, but to thank the authors for their fine work. Thank you!

im sad because im deleting this game after unlocking all the achievements anyway
the original purpose of playing this tower deffense game was to farm it's trading cards , but i tested it , played the first level , then i liked it ...
features : you can make your own maze using the bricks so that you can block the way , many different weapons and skill , a skill tree feature ; a nice retro soundtrack ; and incase you want more challenges you can turn on a "survival" mode for an infinite waves of enemies ....

there are only 2 things i didn't like here :
1-the game crashes randomly but in very rare cases
2-the achievements tracker is eaither bugged or slow to detect what you unlocked

this game is a pure tower deffense game
9.5/10

Super Sanctum TD is a decent little Tower Defense Game. There are a lot of towers and spells to unlock as you advance. You can use different strategies and mazes to beat the levels - and it's a lot of fun.

I especially like about this game that it has:
  • cute graphics
  • a challenging hard mode
  • good balancing (the game will punish you if you don't play smart)
The only thing that bothered me is that unlocking 100% of the achievements involved some grinding after finishing all the levels on every mode.

9/10 A must-have for every Sanctum-Fan. Everyone else should get this for a reduced price without thinking twice!

I recommend it for a cheap price less than <$2, give it 7/10

A nice little TD game, with ability to build pathing (that gives you an element of strategy), you can also assign priority to your towers which is a very nice feature. Upgradable towers, with a simple little tech tree improvements as you progress.

Pros:
A decent amount of strategy involved for such a simple game.
Cheap, I bought it for less than 1 dollar.

Cons:
Simple, Windows 95 era graphics.
Looks like an iOS or Android game which I guess it probably is.

Note: I picked it up for $0.59, but I now believe it is worth the full price.

This is a tower defense game. As such, the gameplay closely resembles that of every tower defense game ever created. However, it still brings hours of fun. It's easy to lose track of time while hunting for achievements or trying to level up. The game is linear (levels slowly become more difficult with minimal exploration), yet I often find myself going back to previous levels to gain experience points or restarting levels with different gear to try and gain an advantage. This is an amazing, low-cost game with great art and lots of potential. Give it a try!

A more relaxed Sanctum game that's really fun and one of the best TDs I have played in a while. It's also incredibly cheap so it's pretty much a must-have for TD fans.

Super Sanctum TD.
Normally i don't play these,even less when they cost money.but it costed only 4€ so i wanted to give it a try.
But,What is Super Sanctum TD?
Well,assuming you already played TD,or Towerdefence is you want it spelt out,games,this is also one...suprise suprise....
So to some basic stuff.when you start you have the tutorial stage and when you enter you see you don't have all the Towers.Oh NOES! But no worries,the only thing you have to do is Level up. With an higher Level comes next to new Towers also Abilitys,from Black Holes which take for an short period of time an group of Enemys out,to mass damaging-thunders to damage increasing Buffs(of your towers for sure).There are also Towers which only can hit not flying Enemys,and 1 Tower which only deals damage to flying enemys(theres an ability that sends enemys flying,so they will be attackable for that Tower for an short period of time.)And they deal alot of damage,that doesn't mean use only them,you will need other Towers in the game later on,atleast to the point i managed to reach in the game.
End Part(long ♥♥♥ end part)
So when you are awful at these kinda games you maybe shouldnt play that,but looking at the price, and the playtime you can have by playing it, (+ it has badges but i don't think,that it is top priority for everyone)you can easily say its worth it.atleast more worth it then some 60€ games i saw so far.Sure it can be boring,so i would only recommend it to some people which are,let's say half way good at td games or better. Because it will become alot more frustating lateron in the game.
But overall,i would recommend it
It was fun,even when im not an huge fan of TD games,and i can gladly recommend it to everyone,since it doesn't costs this much

I own Sanctum 1, 2 & TD and I appreciate it very much. TD is my favourite one, got it for only 0.99 €.
Very nice tower defense game in retro style. Clearly representing and nice amount of content for this little money.
After a few hours of gameplay it's still fun, more long-term than title 1 & 2 in my oppinion.

Decent tower defense game. Defenetly worth the price. I appreciate any TD that is well balanced + forces you to switch tactics at least a couple of times. Has towers, has upgrades, has spells, has skills, can build mazes..has everything what i was expecting.

Do you enjoy tower defense games? Do you enjoy an amazing soundtrack and charming graphics?
Then this is the game for you!

It's a TD game set in the Sanctum universe and it's a match made in heaven! Futuristic weapons, cool skills, amazing music, cute graphics and strategic gameplay. All that is lacking is a story, but it's a tower defense game, so did we really expect one?

If you love TD games, want to have some hours of relaxing, but sometimes intense fun, pick this one up, it's worth every penny!
