Customer Reviews


Most fun I've had with a game in a while! I saw Origins advertised but decided to start at real origins with this game. I love the quirkiness, the phrases the towers come out with especially, often references to other popular culture e.g. "It's a kind of magic", Queen of course.
The levels get steadily more challenging, to the point where at the moment I'm a bit stuck!
Maybe they've improved upon this in later versions but at present the story/characters are not fleshed out AT ALL, which means while you may care about you're hard won victories the characters themselves offer nothing to this. But this is kinda fine to be fair, the game itself operating on a 'it's just a bit of fun' arena.
Well put together game, I'm enjoying it immensely and can't wait to start the expansions!

The king of iOS tower defense games

A really, really well made strategy game, perfectly sized for iPad display. If you like this, the sequels are worth a play too (plus they make much more use of the Hero character, which is even better).

So refreshing to find a strategy game with a shallow learning curve, dozens of levels, and no stupid reliance on in-app purchases to get anywhere.

I love kingdom rush

I've been playing this for years and have completed it several times. I'll never get bored of it and have just redownloaded it, as i believe there are some new levels to play! Can't wait to get to them. Please keep making more levels.
