One of the best tower defense games ive played...definitley in the top 5. Also for the people saying this is a copy of defense grid, I did not see this. I disliked defense grid and this game was great. Totally worth the money. Wish it had more levels in the campaign..9/10!

Great game play with my girlfriend all the time she's not that good at games but picked this one up vary fast and we enjoy paying together in coop. But be forwarned at the one hour mark the npc's get super hard to kill which i consider a sad thing as were near the end of the game. But if u have someone that isn't good at games but still want to play with them this is the game for you, you can talk about where to place towers what to place in other words you can interact with each other and thats the best part.

A nice little tower defense game. It's no Defense Grid, but it's in a similar vein, and certainly better than some other tower defense games I've played. Graphics, sound etc. are decent.

A fun tower defense game for a cheap price. I like the ability of different characters coming with different abilities and weapons.

One thing I've noticed is that this game for some reason makes my computer heat up super quick. Not sure why given it isn't that new a game.

A decent tower game.

One of the best co-op tower defense games out there. Lots of different turrets to use and multiple different maps. You can now even make your own maps with the map editor to extend the game's life spawn. Not to mention the value you get for so low price. The co-op survival mode is where this game shines. Lots of hours burned with different turret combinations on various maps.

Sol Survivor is simply amazing and has probably the best price/enjoyment ratio out of my games. It's simple yet addicting.

I really wish there would be sequel for this game...

The information in the co-op campaign says "Join forces with up to four other players". Four other player would result in a total of five players.

This is incorrect, you can only be 4 players, not 5. If you try to join a fifth player that player gets a completely non-sensical error message that does not in any way inform you that you have reached the max number of players.

Sloppy work. Still good.

Absolutely hooked on this game. One of the best in my collection.

The gameplay is excellent, the soundtrack is amazing, the multiplayer adds more than plenty replay value, and the game is a quite solid production with lots of potential for enhancement later on.

The only drawbacks I have with this game are the survival capping after the hour mark (eventually the mobs just start cheating and there's no way to survive after a certain point just after about an hour into the match but this isn't too bad of a thing, keeping games shorter than an hour and a half especially since in multiplayer there is no pause feature yet) and endgame, the brightness of the lighting can white-out the action.. also the grid is crucial for the game mechanics yet most of the time it is incredibly difficult to see.. instead of using bright green and red circles on a disappearing faint grid.. they could have made the grid a bit more visible.

Overall though, excellent game, I very much enjoy it and recommend it.

An indie tower-defense style game with challenging achievements, badges, and straightforward campaign. Also has low system requirements. Would recommend :)
