Such a very good Tower Defence

I'm not a fan of this type of games but this one is so nice.

  • The hero concept is very useful
  • The different towers and the way they improve is awesome, allowing you to do a thousand combinations and strategies
  • You have to stop the enemy units to prevent then to get the portal (Because a lot of them just dodge your units), this make the game a little harder but it's cool.
  • The art work is beautiful
  • This game has a lot of funny references
  • Such a very good game for a low price (I got it for a dollar and worth every penny)
  • Those hidden achievements <3

Hundred hours of playing and frustration are waiting for you!

+Really addictive
+Great tactics - theres branches in upgrades, so if you don't like one, go for the other type.
+You can choose your main hero - they can be ranged or up close, they fight with the camps.
+Upgrade your skills the way you want to, no set order. I went with a million fireballs.

BURN, BABY.

[SPOILER BELOW?]

My only fault really:
The last level is super difficult for no reason, like.
First the waves, then the main boss to fight, THEN HE HAS A SECOND FORM
its ridiculous but ah well.

I think this is the very best Tower-Defense Strategy game I've ever played. (Probably because I've only played 1, and it's the game I am reviewing.) Here are some pros and cons about this game:

Pros:
-very fun and easy to pick up
-funny aniemation
-the achery towers are amazing
-very good Hero's you can choose

Cons:
-a wee bit of loading

Well, you can tell this is a good game if there is only 1 con.

for me, This game started simply defending a small area from waves of goblins with archers and militia, and then quickly escalated to dwarves firing literal rockets at abominable snowmen in an ice valley, while yelling "yippi ki yay mother ♥♥♥♥er" everytime I upgrade the rocket

I've decided to give this game a review. So here we go.
First of all. I've always been addicted to tower defense and I must say, this is one of the best I've played. Graphics are superb. Variety is ok.(I've seen game with more tactical possibilities). The difficulty settings are very challenging an I loved it. You really have to stop and ask yourself what strategy you're gonna use to win a stage. Got it at 75% discount. At this price it was no question, but having played it, I would now say that it deserves even the full price.
Pros: -Graphics
-difficult
-strategic
-intuitive
Cons:-Not much variety in the turret,
-Can't choose exactly where you're gonna put the tower. I wouldn't mind if that was not a problem in the game . But there is stages that the tactical difficulties are entirely driven by the way they placed the building sites.

Still, at this price, it deserves it

I remember when i first found this gem, years ago on some site i don't even remember. Never would've thought i'll get here, so hooked on and dug in this game. It took me nearly 3 days to max it out, but the sense of accomplishment it gave for beating it on hard, is something worth going after.
Also, pulling through with the trial and error method is much easier, after you realize that the Tesla tower is you'r new best friend. The music felt a bit repetitive, and sometimes things got a bit out of hand.. *cough* Pandemonium *cough*
The visuals are easy on the eye, the gameplay is extremely fun and addictive , simple but not over simplified. Just brilliant overall.

8.5/10

Kingdom Rush is a colorful, well-crafted and balanced tower defense. Definitely worth picking up for fans of the TD genre. While it doesnt offer the depth or number of levels as Gemcraft, the graphics, campaign, heroes, and varied tower designs and enemies make this game a lot fun. Get this.

I've played Kingdom Rush years ago via web game that time.
An amazing game , in all aspects, especially for a Tower-Defence Game player.
Again I see this in steam and bought it . Heros added. And game seems a bit harder than it used to.
I'm tring rush through it , later may add more comments.
