About This Game

Fight off hordes of monstrous mutants created from a strange cataclysmic event in the new tower defense game, Prime World: Defenders. Join a group of exile treasure hunters who have ventured into the capital of an ancient empire, vast with mystery and danger.

Prime World: Defenders merges classic tower defense gameplay with collectible card mechanic. Your towers, your spells, your traps - all are magic cards, that you can collect and upgrade. You'll have to develop your own strategy, because you'll get your random set of cards after each battle.

Freeze, burn, poison, explode and slash countless enemies that will try to stop you from gathering artifacts of old kingdom. Choose your cards carefully, play them strategically and expect some heavy resistance along the way – from small and almost harmless mutated fungi to powerful giant goblins and nagas.

Did we mention? In addition to story-driven single-player campaign Prime World: Defenders has randomly generated missions, newly added endless mode and New Game Plus!

Key Features

  • A mix of tower defense strategy with collectible card mechanics!
  • No micro-transactions or additional payments!

Prime World Defenders is a good game but it does have the annoying remnants of a free-to-play system that make the game a bit irritating at times. You unlock towers and spells by progressing through the game, like many other tower defense games, but in order to upgrade those towers you need to get duplicate 'cards' and combine them. You get random cards from beating randomly generated 'grinding' levels and from buying booster packs. You can get common towers easy but the rarer towers (the ones that you really need to perfect some levels) will elude you for a good portion of the game. Eventually you will max out everything and then the game is really enjoyable although easy at that point.

Each level has two challenges that encourage you to play in different ways and after beating the game once you unlock a harder difficulty to really test out your skills (think new game +). The towers and enemies are fairly standard by tower defense...standards but I didn't really have a problem with that. There are boss fights every few levels that require a bit more strategy until you unlock a tower that absolutely shreds bosses to pieces when upgraded. Some kind of infinite survival map would have been a good inclusion, there are 250 wave survival maps when you finish but with a decent enough strategy you can easily beat them with minimal effort.

Overall I'd recommend the game if you don't mind grinding a bit in the early/mid game to get the towers you need to upgrade.

The mouse feels sluggish, like the acceleration and movement speed are wrong. It's extremely annoying and ruins the game for me. This game needs a vsync on/off option, or a hardware mouse on/off option.

Best tower defense I've ever played. Addictive gameplay that actually makes you want to play it again and again, with different strategies and scenarios.

Prime World: Defenders has some real balance issues, though. At some point you realize that less than half the available towers and spells are actually worth using and upgrading. When you finish the game you unlock the Heroic mode (same stages with increased difficulty) and the feeling of progress goes down to zero because the stages are insanely hard and grinding does nothing for you anymore. There's also some randomness in your rewards that can screw you really hard if you're unlucky.

Regardless of that I definetely recommend this game for anyone looking for a good tower defense (which is really hard to find). It could use some adjustements but it's fun and addictive in a way few games manage to be.

EDIT: I changed my evaluation to NEGATIVE because the devs are a bunch of greedy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. I had no idea they were ignoring the Steam version in favor of a FTP, "pay to win" mobile version.

I am over this garbage game.
Just like every other td, not enough money to install more towers and not enough firepower from the towers that you do install!

There is nothing more needs to be said, it is just garbage!

Graphics is good, there is an option to level up without going thru main storyline, but takes a million years to level up anything and the card (Towers/Magic) given its random. Progress is very slow no matters how much side missions u play.
And in certain mission when u want to retry, it keeps moving ur focus and click away to explain the new tower (which i have already heard the first time) and is really irritating.

I want to recommend this game, I really do. It has nice graphics, the sound effects and music is nice, the voice work is pretty good. No bugs that I've seen and nothing that really irks me.

However, I can't recommend it. The game has been left for dead by the developers in favor of the Free to Play version on Kongregate. This version has been left to rot with no updates unlike its free variant. So if this game looks amazing and you really and you think it's worth the money, then don't buy it, go play it for free and save the money.

Great game, upwards of the top of nice tower defense games, however, the devs of this game abandoned it on Steam, they dumped all thier paying customers in favor of a tablet F2P version that is both updated regularly and (of course) Pay to win and full of microtransactions. So, if you want to play it, just go play it on a tablet and refuse to pay anything, the game will still be higher version even if you don't spent any money. But, on the moral side, just skip this AND the tablet version and go play the many other nice TD games. I suggest Gemcraft, Defense Grid, Ancient Planet and quite a few others. Don't support Devs like these.

Having paid for the Steam version of this game feels like an EX slap in the face with a trout by a troll.

It is free to play (with microtransactions) on Kongregate, Facebook and mobile devices. The Steam version does not get updated, it's at version 1.2. The F2P versions get frequent updates and are currently version 1.7.3.

A borderline criminal business practice. On Steam, if you buy the game, they already got your money so why update the game eh ? And likewise on F2P, its of course very important to constantly update it with new things to spend money on. Disgusting.

Seriously Nival? You gave us the wonderful Homm5, and then you do this, why? :(

Its not even a bad game, its a very functional and decent looking TD with a unique CCG flavour, its actually well worth checking out. Just.. don't be a fool like me and purchase it here, play the F2P versions instead.

Metascore 58?! Are you kidding me? I just don't get it. My only complaint with this game is that it's too grindy at certain points, and with not so many maps it can make the experience somewhat repetitive. Aside from that, the upgradeable trading cards meets tower defense idea here works surprisingly well, and above all it's fun. If you're a fan of tower defense, I say go for it. It's one of the best in the genre (up there with defense grid, plants vs. zombies, etc.). 8/10

It is a fun TD. However do not buy this game. There is a free version out there that is better. The steam version is outdated. In addition after a while the game just gets repetative and there is a ton of grinding you need to do to progress

I really wanted to like this game because of the whole tower defense thing and how nice the game looks, but it is VERY, VERY, poorly executed. It starts off fun for the first half... You get to upgrade towers and combine powers and unlock new abilities... All very nice...

BUT...

The baddies are in a constant state of "better than you can ever be" near the middle of the game. As you are upgrading towers, like in other tower defense games it should be EASIER to take out baddies so they just throw more baddies at you so you can then upgrade towers more, but in this game they not only throw more baddies at you but the baddies are near invincible and require HOURS AND HOURS of grinding to finally beat. Even with upgrades and such, the starting "prime" money/resources at the begining of each level is insanely low for the amount of powerful baddies that show up even in the first wave... The amount of prime you get from each kill does not go up with the difficulty increase and health increases the baddies get as the game progresses, so it makes it even harder to upgrade towers and such without pointless hours upon hours of grinding. Also, the types of towers that show up after the midpoint are completely random, so you may get some decent towers in a playthrough or you may never see those towers at all! It just feels like a poorly executed port from a mobile platform "free to play, but pay to win" type game at that point. I mean I had towers upgraded that could do 5000+ damage in a single shot and it couldn't take down the weakest swarmers.

I really cannot recommend this game because of the insane difficulty curve that spikes in at the midpoint of the game; it goes from being fun, to being a decent challenge, to being an automatic rage quit. Maybe I will revisit the game and give a better review if the devlopers ever fix the balancing issues. (DEVS? If you are reading this, play the game 'Defense Grid" that is how a tower defense game should be done.)

This game feels suspiciously like a mobile IAP-based game that was translated to PC...

First though, the good -- the game looks very nice indeed for a tower defense game. Very high production values when it comes to visuals and overall presentation.

But back to the mobile app part -- unlike your typical tower defense game, which focuses on strategy and proper tower placement / usage, this one features a very heavy emphasis on grinding for permanent upgrades to your towers, which makes it almost as much of a hybrid RPG game as a traditional TD one. The game features a booster / upgrade store, and it is this part which feels distinctly like a remnant of a mobile port. As the levels progress, the same types of creeps gain increasing amounts of health, while the strength of your towers remains constant - thus the need to spend substantial amounts of time grinding previous levels for money to buy upgrades. One might imagine that a mobile version of this game would include the ability to buy these upgrades on the spot in exchange for real money...

I'm kind of ambivalent about whether or not to recommend this game. The hybrid TD-RPG concept can work well and be enjoyable, but in this case, I think my problem is mostly with the balance and unnecessarily high grind requirement.

I am slightly conflicted in recommending this. On one hand, purely from a "tower defense" perspective, the gameplay is pretty solid. Everything works as it should and it is well-designed (nice interface, towers all serve specific purposes, enemy health, waves and routes are clearly indicated, etc). And most importantly, the actual gameplay itself is fun. What brings this down are the nonstandard elements the developers tried to introduce into the standard tower defense formula - specifically, the "card system" (and everything that comes along with it). There's nothing wrong with the basic idea - tower types are represented by cards that can be collected and leveled up, and you have to pick and choose a subset of cards from your deck before going into a level. Where the problem comes in is obtaining the cards you need you be successful and "leveling up" those cards. First of all, the leveling system is overly confusing and needlessly complicated. Secondly, in order to beat the later levels, you will need specific cards leveled up to adequate levels of strength. The problem with this is that most of the cards you get as rewards are random, so you could go a good long while without (or possibly even never) finding a Lightning Tower card, for example (which I would consider absolutely essential for beating the game). And even if you are lucky enough to get some good towers, the process of leveling them up takes serious time. You basically just need to keep grinding out optional levels to get extra cards that can be used to fuse/evolve other cards. And make no mistake, you are going to be doing some serious grinding. So, depending on your tolerance for grinding levels and ranking up things, that's how I would recommend you make your decision to buy this or not. Personally, I am the OCD-type who feels the need to level things up and complete stuff, so I forced myself through and eventually got enough cards of high enough strength to power through the main game, as well as the extra hard difficultly that unlocks afterwards. While I did enjoy the game overall, it did take a lot of time and effort to get the most out of it. To me, tower defense shouldn't be about making towers strong enough to win by brute force. It should be about overcoming the challenges using a set of predefined towers and nothing else except whatever strategy you come up with. The first half of this game can be played along those lines, but once you get to the later levels, you will absolutely hit a wall if you don't have certain cards leveled up to a certain strength. That's poor design in my eyes. But even with all that said, I honestly still had fun with this game, as it's well made and I have a semi-high tolerance for grindy things. If you think you can deal with the grinding issue and like TD games, definitely go for it. Otherwise, you may want to hold off or wait for a huge discount.

Not a bad game if you like tower defense things. However (and this is a big however) it appears to be abandonware now, while the free versions still get updates. That wouldn't be terrible, but the game has broken achievements, VERY few maps, and "upgrades" that appear to do absolutely nothing in the paid version.

If you are into this type of games - tower defence - this is the one you definitely wanna try.

Prime World: Defenders makes you think how you could beat AI better, quicker and cheaper. Every tower has its price and costs an amount of "prime", which you are lack of and it makes levels hard as hell so this is the reason why you need better towers which you can achiev by buying new cards and playing almost same levels again and again which sometimes makes this game really boring. You can improve your cards by evolving and fusing them. It's the biggest minus that I see in this game, it takes really long to have powerful and useful defence against all types of monsters so if you are not patient this isn't game for you.

Not very impressed by this game but neither disappointed.

Lets start of by saying that i havent played a lot of tower defence games but if a fair few have the quality that this game does then i think i will be playing a fair few others.
When i started playing the game i was like "I really like the setting" (huge fantasy fan me) "but do i really like the style of gameplay that this sort of game has".
Then i watched as time went by and i realised this is exactally the sort of game i love to spend time with,the setting is pure fantasy and is well represented in game with the graphics,sound and script.
The game plays out from battle to battle and you gain coin and different cards that you can use in battles defending the entrance that the demons (from bouncing heads on sticks to exploding frogs-GO FIGURE) try to reach and if they do so in a certain number then its "GAME OVER MAN" (couldent resisit the quote there).
The cards are also used in between levels in upgrading the towers you have,and beleive me when i tell you that this plays a heavy part in the game as dont upgrade and you are not going to proceed any further than where you are at that certain point in the game.Grinding plays quite a huge role in the game and is an important part of being able to upgrade the equipment you have so you can get that one level closer to the finishing line and the demon who seems to want your head on a pole.
Like i have allready said i really liked the game and after playing for a while (havent quite finished just yet-but dont think it will change my opinion on the game as i will still regard it as a game i would reccommend to anyone with a love of tower defence games) then decided to buy another tower defence game (well the pack) ANOMOLY 2 and found that i really like that game also.
So sometimes it is good to play games you arent used to as you then find that sometimes a change can be just what you needed and that a game style you have never played before can get you gaming in ways you never thought you would.

Tower Defense crossed with a Card Collecting game; an unusual mix that strangely works well together. You have a set campaign of around 20 quests to complete before you, with some side quests you can do between main quests to gain further experience. There is some backstory to the whole game but its not overly interesting only appearing after winning certain levels. You use the drops, silver & stars earned from each win to upgrade your towers & magic, increase your deck size & obtain other perks.

Initial levels in the game are very, very easy to complete, making me think this might be a 'one session to complete' kinda game. Once you hit around level 10, the levels get much harder though. If you have been unlucky on the drops or have put your upgrades into tower cards you shouldn't have you can find yourself grinding out upgrades to get through the next level. This isn't overly frustrating though as the maps are randomly selected for each difficultly level & can have random modifiers to block certain tower squares from use. This adds new challenges for existing maps. There are also some unique boss levels where you have a set amount to build & take down a large enemy - those are fun!

There are a LOT of different towers you can build up in your deck. For tower defense veterans, most of the common suspects are there in some form (guns, flamers, slowers, long range), plus some other more unique configurations. Not sure exactly how many tower types there are but would estimate at least 20. The quality of the card determines how far you can upgrade, with each upgrade generally improving DPS/Range/Efficiency etc.

For those who like a strong mazing component to their tower defense, then this game might not be for you. There is some maps with a smaller level of mazing but most have a set path design. The strategic importance in PW:D is with your card selection to match the incoming enemies & what you put your limited upgrades earned towards. Better choices will make moving up the levels much easier (unlike my poor effort of a play through lol!), & bad choices will make the game feel next to impossible to beat.

The HD support (or lack of) I found a bit disappointing. Running PW:D in full screen ends up stretching the desktop down to 1280x720 - windows like the Steam window open in the background always get shrunk down & I need to resize. It looks fine at the lower resolution just a minor frustration. Again, a minor frustation I found was the menus between games. There is a lot of going in and out of different sections to get your upgrades done, check your towers etc. This could have been simplified to fit more cards on one page, and have main functions and browsing together to save going back and forth.

Overall, I have really been enjoying this one. Its a challenging & addictive tower defense game with a card twist! Lots of achievements & one that is well suited to load up for a quick 10-20min TD session.
