EXTREMELY POSITIVE GAME

VERY ADDICTIVE, FUN, IT DOES FEEL LIKE A IPAD, TABLET GAME, BUT IT IS ALOT OF FUN, AS YOU SETUP, UPGRADE DEFENSES, AND THEN THE ENMIES WALK FROM POINT A TO POINT B AND YOU HAVE TO STOP THEM, YOU UPGRADE SKILLS, YOU GET WAVES OF ENEMIES, VERY ADDICTIVE AND FUN, THE GRAHPICS ARENT THE BEST, THERE OK, NOT VERY DETAILED AT ALL, I MEAN, EVEN A IPAD GAME WITH SIMILIAR GAMEPLAY, HAS BETTER GRAHPICS, BUT STILL, ITS A VERY FUN ADDICTIVE GAME,

Easily one of the best Tower Defense games ever produced. It's smooth, imaginative, challenging, complicated and fun. It's main strong point is its strategy with simple paths but formidable foes coming from several directions. Your defenses are intricate and diverse with one of the best upgrade systems I've ever used. There's tons of movie references in the clever and well produced voice-overs and the little extras on some levels make it more enjoyable. Colorful graphics, well-designed and challenging levels. The game is also pretty big, and it will take you a while to get through everything. I highly recommend this game.

A classic. I played the online version a couple of years ago and now I am replaying it on steam. If you like tower defense games (and even if you don't like them), this is a must have.

You'd think fixing tower positions would take something away and yet Kingdom Rush proves challenging and enjoyable.

An extremely fun TD game. Probably the best one on Steam.

The graphics look great.
The theme is fun.
The levels are well built.
The upgrades are interesting and varied.
The achievements are about secrets and overall gameplay, not "Grind this bs level 25 times" or something impossible.
The trading cards are usually worth 0,13€ or so.

BUT THERE IS ONE MASSIVE FLAW:
You don't have a fast forward button due to the engine being shoddy. Due to that the playtime will be padded out with some bs waiting for enemies that will undoubtedly die.

Overall
8.5/10
(Every game starts off at a 5/10 and the grade rises/lowers with the pros and cons that are present in the game)

Good grief, I had 90% the mobile version and just realize I've logged 206 hours on the Steam version over an embarassingly short time period.

It's happy. I don't know how else to put it. I loath phone/tablet gaming, so I found myself flicking rapidly from one title to the next, downloading, playing, deleting... I tripped over KR (the kids at Ironhide made it free once the sequals came out), and it's the first mobile game that I didn't delete... purchased :Frontiers and :Origins also.

it's quick enough to just plop down and play for a bit, but has enough tactical depth to make you want to *continue* playing for more bits. I adore the art style (the "Minish Cap" Esque art was the first draw for me, to be honest. HAH! "Draw"... see what I did there?). The cheerful little cartoon world is a place I'd like to visit... hell, I wrote a review here:

Disregard my time, I played this game to completion outside of steam.

This game saved me soooo many times from dying in Programming class.
Its a tower defence game, with: a cute art style, semi-decent music, fantastic gameplay, branching tower upgrades that are actually worth the gold, and an overall sort of 'not serious' atmosphere about it.
And heroes. Don't forget to select one ok? They make or break games.

There is a lot of content here for 9 bucks and its well worth it.

Hey dudes. Thanks for being there in class when I needed a distraction.

9/10

I fell in love with this game in 2010 on my iPod touch 4th Gen. I was wandering around on steam and stumbled upon it and was shocked.

I have to say the game feels amazing. Whereas PopCap failed to put Plants Vs. Zombies in a good Steam game, Kingdom Rush fits well. I have encountered no problems or bugs so far. Overall this is amazing and fun. It reminds me why I fell in love with this game in the first place. The simple, yet strategic, thought provoking game is one of a kind. I would buy the game if it was less though. I feel as if the game is not worth the full 10$ even though I like to support the studio. I think 5$ would be a more reasonable price because you can get the game free on the app store or I even played on a website in 2012 at a friend's house.
