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!

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!

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!

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.

The overall is good. The BGM is charming & so energize me.

I recommend this game to all Tower Defense lover.

AND maybe you will dislike this game if you don't like Tower Defense genre.

N.B.: Salute to the game's developer. We hope you still develop this game & keep updating it too. <3

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.

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!
