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!

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!

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

7/10

Don't need to write reviews, this game is less than $1 and is a 'real' release(Little or no bugs). If you hate Tower defense games then save yourself some change, otherwise this is a no brainer.

9/10: Strongly recommend.

Super Sanctum TD is probably one of the better uses for £3 that I can think of. Doubly so if you are a fan of the tower defense genre. If you, like me, are rather fond of retro style games then there is really no reason not to try this one out. The mechanics are fairly simple, but conspire to produce a game with a pleasing level of strategic depth. Sanctum fans will be right at home, and players new to the setting will discover the best turrets for the job in short order. I was initially dubious regarding the lack of 'hands-on' management of enemies a la Sanctum 1 & 2, but the special powers available for you to direct and deploy make up for the inability to go down there and fight quite satisfactorily. Campaign length seems fine, though may well prove to be my only real area of concern. That said, difficulty settings, survival mode and achievement hunting should ensure that you leave the game feeling satisfied.

An excellent game to pick up for a break, or to play for longer periods, especially when set to survival mode.

It's Sanctum to start off with, and if you haven't played Sanctum 1 and 2 you are missing out. As for them taking the FPS out of the equation and just making a tower defense game, it's awesome!

I've always been a fan of the Sanctum series (Playing through both games and then some) but TBH, this game is a waste of your time. I realize that it is just a side game/spinnoff/parody, but really, $3..99 for basically a flash game. The game play is decent and not bad by any means, but you could be playing better TD games (*the actual sanctum series*) then playing this. Sadly, this gets a 4/10

"Super Sanctum TD" is a simplistic, top-down tower defense game that stays true to the Sanctum universe. It's very easy to pick up and play, though the "fullscreen" toggle (ALT+ENTER) does not stretch to fit widescreen monitors. Still, I picked up the game for 59 cents and don't regret it. If you're bothered by retro-style graphics then this may not be the game for you, otherwise it's an easy recommend for fans of the genre.

This game is realy awesome with great balance between the player and the id. For only 0,59 Euro buy it and play until the next Sa ctum TD :) I forgot to tell you that some times the game CRASHES and believe me is a very bad feeling when you almost have finished the level and you must play again from the beginning. Please fix this problem!

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.
