Ratings and Reviews
The Best TD Series On Mobile!
Kingdom Rush is one of the most impressive games I have ever played. It combines the best aspects of various genres to create an amazing experience all around - the depth of character and fantastic story of traditional RPGs, the side-scrolling action of classic adventure games, and the tactical depth of long-lived RTS titles all wrapped up in a neatly packaged tower defense game that will keep you entertained for hours.
The vast cast of characters you have at your disposal will keep you engaged throughout each different level. Different classes of heroes allow you to refine whatever style of gameplay you want, and the leveling system rewards you for investing time into these useful allies. Optional levels of difficulty provide a great sense of progression and replayability, and the entire game provides a rewarding experience for gamers of all kinds.
In a world filled with pay-to-win games and ad-ridden time sinks, Kingdom Rush stands out as a stellar example of proper gaming enjoyment. Highly worth the initial investment of a few dollars, you have the choice to enjoy extra power-ups for the price of some of your time watching ads. Or you can invest in a powerful new hero to use on the battlefield - but no matter your choice, rest assured that Kingdom Rush will never force you to do so. The game is playable, and completion is perfectly achievable without spending an extra penny or watching a single ad.
A literal masterpiece.
Kingdom rush was my first game when I had an IPhone 5s, about 6 years ago. I used to play Balloon Tower Defense 3 at school on the class computers, and when I found a similar tower defense game on the phone, I was hooked. I’ve played all of the Kingdom Rush Games, as well as Iron Marines, and I think the 5 dollars for this game is so worth it. Some levels are difficult, but not to the point of pay-to-play. I love this game series because Ironhide, unlike most game developers, really cares about its community and not the profit it makes. Honestly I’m shocked that this game series hasnt received as much attention as it deserves. But recently I feel like KR Vengeance, as cool as it is to play as the baddies and see the penultimate return of Lord Vez’nan himself, feels off. The devs are starting to go to the “pay to play” end of the spectrum, and when you have to pay for towers as well, it just seems unlike Ironhide.
TLDR; never change, Ironhide. Your games are freaking amazing. :D
Great game, but sized all wrong on iPad?
I’ve been playing Kingdom Rush for a long time, and always download it again with each new device. And it’s worked great all along... until now. The latest version on my 2018 iPad 9.7” acts like it’s only sized for iPhone, and the game play screen doesn’t fit the available screen space. What’s worse, the game play area is bigger than the window, so it’s impossible to see both where the troops enter and where they’re trying to go without scrolling around during the game. This is *not* ideal. If the game had always been this way, that’d be one thing, but it wasn’t. If it used to be possible to fit the game window to the screen size on iPad, why isn’t it now? Hopefully this can be changed in a future version.
