Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a Tower defence game.


Interface/Menu/Settings

There are many resolution sizes.
There are 3 profile slots.
There is a Music volume slidebar available.
There is a sound volume slidebar available.

About the game.

This is a tower defence game with a twist. Usually you are defending from evil and from the bad guys. Now you are the bad guy and you have to defend your "Core" from the good guys. You place towers and other turrets to stop the enemy reaching your "Core". The game concept is the same. You have to defend the core from the enemies and don't run out of lives. You are only able to place towers from the side lanes and on certain/specific locations. You can play on a higher difficulty once you have beaten the easier version first. There is a shop menu which will allow you buy and make your towers or abilities stronger with souls. You are able to rewind some waves back, but at the price of souls.

There are different difficulty settings.
There is a tutorial ingame.
You are able to speed up the waves by 4x.
Great music.
Good background.
Upgradeable and sellable towers.
Enemy information. (What kind of enemy, health, gold worth, damage).
There is a restart and pause button.
Able to click start the wave early (Grants some extra money for doing so).
Able to use ability powers.
Shop menu to make your towers or units stronger with Souls.
Able to rewind waves back at the cost of souls.
Each level has their own advantage and disadvantage.

Other things.

Have some memes. :(
Alt-tab will NOT PAUSE YOUR GAME.
Spacebar WILL START YOUR NEXT WAVE IF IT IS AVAILABLE!

I Give this game a 8/10

This is my top game genre and this is the best TD ever played. It would be better if you could set target priorities though.

ugh... i just tried it and the tutorial level literally forced me to build specific towers at specific spots and the guide popups have the worst timing and the maps are so messy and unclean and the ui is too big and the map doesn't fit on the screen and you can't zoom out an because of that i just found 2 additional tower spots by accidental scolling down and looking at the bottom right corner

(yes i know my gramar sucks and i used 'and' too much but i don't ♥♥♥♥♥♥ care <.<)

A fun to play tower defense game with nice cartoon grafics.
The upgrade system for towers is quite satisfying, as well as the rich passive skill tree.
Huge plus goes to replayability of the levels - you can choose from 5 different difficulties and a challenge mode.

Recommended to all fans of tower defense games and also for achievement hunters (easy to get, takes some time to grind tho)

There's absolutely nothing new about this game, pretty similar towers and gameplay to other games (e.g. kingdom rush) - but: The game is nicely made and balanced, I had quite some fun playing it, so I if you like the genre, here's my recommendation.

Decent, but other games do the same thing better. Just play Kingdom Rush again.

The gameplay is tower defense standard, of the "fixed paths and build spots" sort. Enemies walk along, you shoot them down. Tower variety is somewhat less than usual because most of the options are clearly worse. The answer to most problems is "more sniper towers."

Fake longevity via repetition and grinding is the main problem. There are only 15 levels. The game tries to extend that with 6 difficulty levels for each map. The achievements try to extend that to a full length game by asking you to repeat that for a literal day, because the last achievement calls for 4x as many kills as all 15 levels at all 6 difficulties.

Very easy tower defense game.
Variety of towers gives a nice tactical advantage until you figure out what playstyle you like the most and then just stick with it.
Campaign itself is short, and same maps need to be played over and over again, for achievements and currency.

And if you are interested getting 100% achievements, be prepeared to spend many hours to get them, but easily possible.

Intro - About
This very well polished, charming tower defense game will have you playing all day long thanks to no lack of upgrading and different towers that have their own unique abilities. Build you defenses to stop incoming enemy forces from reaching the end of the path. Have each of your towers and turrets co-operate with each other to help take down strong enemy’s and defeat large hordes.

Pros & Cons

++ Pros
+Charming graphics
+Great tutorial
+Gives motive to continue playing
+Fair price (Current $9.99 US)
+Sound / Effects are on point
+UI and HUD / Menu is very user friendly
+Amount of maps

-- Cons
-Have to grind (farm) for coins to upgrade towers (sometimes / cant always upgrade after each match)

Personal Opinion
I Believe this is a great tower defense game. One of the best, charming, detailed games of its kind. There are many tower defense games but this is my number 1. I love that the graphics and the art of the characters and environment is very easy on the eyes and provides great game play flow. Then there is strategy, you must build the correct towers next to each other that really co-operate so one can slow down and the other can do slow heavy damage.

Final recommendation:
Based on controls, mechanics, price, graphics, and overall game play, I rate this game 7/10. This has great replay-ability and a good go to game if you don’t want a game that’s so intense.

One of the better tower defense games I've played in recent times. Yes it's a mobile port but a good one, with zero micro-transactions. Purchase grants 100% of the game. Huzzah.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw4B23PDRZU
Includes a fair bit of content for the price. 100 odd levels are spread across 5 different regions. 60+ towers providing alternate upgrade paths along with global leaderboards for each and every single quest. I'm still in the early stages playing through on normal, though it's already become quite challenging to 3 star levels. Story is presented with a tongue in cheek nature that actually provided a few laugh out loud moments. No in-game options were available, a slider for sound volume would be welcomed but otherwise nothing was really required. Graphics stayed crisp scaling up to 4k resolution via the unity launcher.

Evil Defenders has great presentation and screenshots don't do the detailed animation justice. Something that particularly surprised me was the cut-scenes which were comprised of some lovely cg work. With a ton of achievements, decent soundtrack, responsive controls and your typical TD *one more round* hook, the game gets my thumbs up. Recommended to any TD enthusiast and I feel the price is spot on. Cheers folks.

Copy was provided by dev, doesn't change my thoughts.

To put it short: This game offers little compared to other Tower Defense games on PC.

This is not a bad game. But compared to other TD games on PC it falls way behind. Games like Defender's Quest, Defense Grid (1+2) and GemCraft offer both deep and satisfying gameplay - for around the same price.

Evil Defenders feels like it belongs on a tablet or a phone. At first you might not notice, but it becomes clear after a short while. It's very simple and doesn't offer much in terms of strategic planning. My advice to you is pretty simple as well:

If you are new to TD games this might be a good place to start (although I'd wait for it to be on sale). Be sure to check out the games above afterwards.
If you are a TD veteran you will be wanting more out of a TD game that costs €9.99. Gameplay is just too simple.

Evil Defenders is a great tower defense game. The game has 15 levels and each level can be played in five different difficulties and one challenge mode. In order to gain all stars you have to play every level in all difficulties. Some players complained about this but I think the different difficulties nicely enhance the gaming experience.

Pros:
- nice graphics
- very well balanced in terms of difficulty
- good music
- addictive
- it's fun

Cons:
- two achievements can only be collected if you add another +/- 100 hours play time after finishing the game

What was a 25-minute playthrough soon became a 3-hour addiction. If you haven't already discovered it, Evil Defenders is a tower defence title where the player dons the responsibility of making sure creepy, noseless peasants don't invade your domain. Equipped with a large arsenal at your disposal, ranging from foot skeleton soldiers to Orc-operated cannons, the player must choose the most efficient way to dominate the playing field. Keep in mind that each tower requires payment by gathering money after defeating each opponent, and additional bonus cash for quickly accomplishing each wave. This game requires you to utilize every tactic to gun down your enemy before they get the opportunity to inflict some serious damage on you.

Visuals are beautifully illustrated along with a well thought out menu layout. The in-game combat is sleek and simplistic, with each map or location having a set of 6 areas which require stronger defences over time. However, with each successful victory, the player is rewarded with a currency in the form of souls; this soul cash is then used for your tree ability list, enabling you to seriously lay the hurt on intruders after upgrading.

It's easy to understand the combat system and all of its functionality, it also gets more challenging as you progressively unlock levels. The only thing this game would ever need to have is more levels to play through! :) If you're having trouble deciding on whether to try this game out or not, check out my preview video to see for yourself!

Not a very good TD game, have to grind the same levels over and over to earn enough points to upgrade your towers to be able to beat the next level, maps feel identical to others in it's same "zone"
Kingdom rush is a better TD.

If you take Kingdom Rush, add better graphics and slightly more jokes then you will get this game. Yep, it's that good.

Just become my 7th 'perfect' title as i managed to get the final achievement and that says a lot for this game that it's held my attention for that long.
For my money Defense grid is the daddy of tower defense games but i'm always on the look out for for a game which may challenge it for that title.
While Evil defenders is not as good it certainly is quality. It may be a mobile port but it runs full screen at 2560x1440 and makes use of all that real estate. Functunal graphics and excellent sound combined with great replayability and this a tower defense title worth your time and your money.
62 hours played does not lie.....Recommended

Evil Defenders is a tower defense strategy game, what confirmed in funny style and a bit remembering us for Kingdom Rush. In this game we are at a "Dark" side, our goal is defend Evil and his land from people. This game first was released for android platforms, but now we can enjoy it at pc aswell. A game have a lot of content. You can play 15 maps, and there you can use up to 60 different towers to defend The base. All maps have 6 levels, these mean totally you have 90 levels, not a little number.

If you beat a level, you´ll earn souls for yourself what you can use it for upgrade your towers. The enemy have 15 different units, you should defend your base from 10 waves up to 30, how many waves been this depend which level you are at. A game have a good guide, you can read all important information’s abut units. A game graphics looks very nice. Sounds and music also good, well harmonized with game style.

So my verdict

+lots of content
+good music and sounds
+good graphic
+interesting shooting mechanism
+steam achievements and trading cards

-leaderboard don’t work

So this game is very nice and have good music, this can be a good rest after hard day of work. Also this can keep you for long time because this have a lot of content. If you like tower defense games, like earn achievement or just want a bit rest, its game totally for you.

9/10
