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 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!

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!

It's entertaining at first, but quickly becomes a bit of a slog. Not the worst... you can use it to kill a bit of time, but there are so many better games out there I wouldn't recommend this one except as part of a bundle, on mega-sale or if you're a dev looking at developing your own TD game, and want to research the genre.

Just like the actual game it is based off of: you have to be very specific with your tower placement and upgrades to be successful. The ability to play how you want to play is nonexistent. It's like the developers said "we are releasing our game for you to play and you will play it how we want you to play it, not how you want to play it". Give me the card drops for this and f--k off. However Sanctum 2 is a very good game so fk this and get that.

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!

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!
