Dual Decade (Swedish indie game studio) presents Dash or Defend - the game that begins where traditional tower defense games end!

In Dash or Defend, you choose to play either the attacking or defending side before each battle. As the attacker you create wave after wave of troops and enhance them with spells, so they can overcome your opponent's towers. Conversely, as defender you will be building towers and use magic to stop the attacker's troops.
Alternate which side you play to have even more fun, while becoming better at predicting and defeating your opponents' strategies!

Dash or Defend merges the Tower Defense genre with Real-Time Strategy and MOBA in a way that has never been done before. While it is clearly building on great Tower Defense traditions, there's more action, faster decisions and sweeter victories than in any TD game you have ever played. That's a promise!

Key Features:
- Play two sides, with 100% different cards and win conditions.
- Duel real players in real-time.
- Discover what it's like to play the reverse side of Tower Defense.
- Unlock and upgrade towers, units and magical effects as you battle your way up the ranks.
- No pay to win. Cards can't be purchased - only collected through winning battles. (Plus, there are freebies!)
- Fine-tune your battle decks to fit your strategies perfectly.
- Each game only takes 5 minutes or less.
- Protect Grand Hiria from being overrun by your enemies!
- Tap-Dash! A fun mini-game in the Flappy Bird tradition is included, to entertain you while you wait for your next opponent to press their "Battle" button.

Recommended devices: iPhone 5 and later, iPad 3 and later, iPad Mini 1 and later, iPad Air and later, iPad Pro.

Superb strategy game!


Where do I begin? Is it with the perfect mix of oldschool look with a hint of modern visuals? How about the unique gameplay that offers a balance between challenge and fun? I can even say that the way the game is designed with matches taking less than 5 minutes is excellent for mobile fun. Oh wait, let's not forget the game's multiplayer capability allowing you to duel other players in real-time! I could go on and on but I think I'd rather play now. Let the fun begin!!

Everything you'll ever want.

Hydrawolf the great

Love tower defense games? Love going against other people? Love being the minions? Then this game is for you! It doesn't have the best graphics, sure... but it's got great progression, it's easy to play, matches are fast, and it has exactly what you want in a multiplayer Tower Defense game! 5/5 for sure.

Great game!!


I have played a lot of tower defense games but this is the first one where you can play defending the castle and also attack it.
It’s a funny game where you earn cards to improve your defenses (or your characters) and then play online against others
