Customer Reviews

Great game, but...

I agree with most of the overwhelmingly positive reviews, but with a few issues that are difficult to dismiss. The game is strategically deep, incredibly fun, and provides a strong amount of replay value. Unfortunately, it also has a storyline that ends bizarrely unresolved. As a result, I felt somewhat short-changed on the amount of levels and general length of the basic quest. With that said, the game continued to keep me entertained by offering multiple difficulty levels and the dangling carrot of completing the hardest difficulty level perfectly for the "gold star" rating. It's an easy recommendation for anybody who enjoys tower-defense games, but just misses the five-star rating due to the seemingly unfinished storyline and consequent lack of more levels.

Absolutely Superb!

An extremely enjoyable take on the Tower Defense genre, cleverly blending strategy/action/RPG elements in such a well balanced manner that it just makes you wanna give it "one more try"! As you can imagine, that additional attempt leads to numerous more attempts and before you know it, several hours have gone by and you are completely immersed in the game and obsessed at overcoming the current stage! The satisfaction that comes from beating each stage at the highest of the four initial difficulty levels (heroic) is unparalleled and seeing that gold star is simply delightful! Highly recommended, so do yourself a favor and download the game now!!

Hours of fun

First up, the HD version is definitely a serious (and beautiful) graphics upgrade. I sunk hundreds of hours into this a couple years ago, and even now it's one of the best mobile games (hell, any game) I've played. There's a bit of grinding and the engine breaks down at the hyper high levels, but you have dozens and dozens of hours of fun before you have to worry about that. This is pure rpging strategy and the best tower defense game I've played. The excessive text in between levels is the only drawback.

Two years later I'm back for more and still having fun. Well worth the price!
