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 typical towers defense game, nothing more, nothing less.
Yes, this game looks on screenshots like 20 years old game which may be repulsive. I don't even know why I started to play this game, but for sure I didn't have any expectations. And I realised that I have 13 hours playtime. That was good time for sure. This game is well designed, difficulty level grows with every level, so it's not so hard to start but it's getting difficult after some time. But you will want to pass only one level, and next after that, and maybe next... And so on.
Generally very well designed, polished and properly balanced piece of a game. It's really hard to find something as good in such a price. Good job.

VERDICT:
If you're a fan of tower defence games, this is good one. Try it, you won't regret.
If you have only few bucks and want to play for long hours, this is it!

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

Well, it IS tower defense. As the name implies, actually.
And it looks like a flash game. But as one of the screenshots state, It's actually GOOD.
And considering that it's almost free, it's actually one of the better TD games I've seen.

Not all levels require careful planning, some are pretty easy even on hard difficulty, other will make you sweat... until you change a turret or an active skill, that is.

All in all, it's got a very good return on your investment (counting fun and time played vs price)

Super Sanctum TD was a game I picked up for the combination of ridiculous sale price ($0.79) with trading cards. When I saw a game that looked to be similar to the original Sanctum games with the fast-paced FPS action taken out, I expected it to be a sloggy, boring grindfest - my standard opinion when it comes to the majority of tower defense games.

Much to my surprise, Super Sanctum TD manages to dodge the most common gripes I have about the TD genre. Most levels have an open-ended "create-your-own-maze" approach, allowing for a lot of freedom and creativity in level solutions. SSTD also does away with long streaks of easy early-game snore-inducing levels - strong planning, resource management, and intelligent skill usage are all needed as soon as you complete the two training levels. The difficulty remains fairly consistent throughout, giving what seems like a paltry 14 stages a pretty beefy amount of playtime, as you'll likely need a few tries to figure out a suitable plan for much of the levels. On the other hand, if you find yourself breezing through the game, there's plenty of replay value in the form of an optional Hard difficulty, as well as infinite survival modes for every stage.

SSTD isn't without its flaws, however - most glaringly is the game's fondness for crashing. Thankfully, the game does a fairly good job of autosaving, letting you continue right at the start of the wave you were left hanging on. The high difficulty I praised earlier can also be a bit of a double-edged sword - with a completely linear level structure, getting stuck on a stage will bring any semblance of progression to a screeching halt. An optional easy difficulty setting may have been a good idea for this reason.

Super Sanctum TD may not be the most innovative game in the world, but what it does, it does very well. If you're a big fan of tower defense games, then this game is an absolute steal.

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.

Got it on sale ($0.79) and its fun. It will keep you busy for hours because it gets challenging later on. This might be my second Fav tower-defence game I've played besides StarCraft 2 arcade minigames.

I've played most Tower Defense games, you can check out my library. Some TD games I buy outside Steam too!

This is a very, very good TD game!! If you're new to this genre, it's easy to pick up. If you're pro like me, you'll be challenged by the 'endless waves' mode.

Only 2 flaws, pointed out by others are: lack of more music, lack of better graphics. However, the gameplay is SOLID!

I really can't put words to it, there are toweres to hurt enemies, abilities to accent the wayward enemy out of reach OR to help out in some other way... upgrades and the usual strategy. But also reinvestible perks.

An amazing game, I wish I bought it when I first saw it. Perfect combo of its function and its artform [many layers]

My only complaint, I had to restart at level 10/11 [player level] but I learned enough to make it freaking cake to get on track.. if not levels lost and time gone.

Exactly what you'd expect from a TD game, but with a little extra to make it different from the rest. Totally addicting!
