Absolutely a Joy

Kingdom Rush will be on my personal favorite games list. When I first found it, I was consumed. This version, Origins offers the most vibrant art of the series. The towers themselves are very different from the last two games, inspired by magic or mystical creatures. Voodoo totems, druids calling bears, ent people, and necromancers are all options available for towers, just to name a few.

Origins is my least favorite of the three games, but I still recommend it wholeheartedly. As a fan, I might recommend purchasing the heroes to support the company. Regardless of the contribution an individual character brings to the game, the game as a whole is worth money. Maybe not $50 total for the game plus the dlc characters, but I feel like a handful from the character list is certainly justified.

frustrating & unbalanced

Not good. The concept is neat, Graphics are fine, I am a lover of the kingdom rush series but this is the weakest one. Voice acting is a little weird. It's very difficult, too. The starting money is not enough, wave one I'll have a few hundred gold, then the next wave I have to defend another lane, then another lane comes out of nowhere and goes straight through. I don't like the "teleporting" enemies. And the disabling towers is not enjoyable - it's actually very frustrating. Also some things are not explained very well. Some of the free heroes are clearly weaker than others - I don't know if they are supposed to be, but I don't even use some of them I just stick with Catha the entire game. lost over 3 bucks to buy the app and it's so tempting to buy the heroes. A hero which costs over $7. Double the price of the game itself is outrageous. I would give this 1 star But I still give 2 stars because I do have the urge to finish the game.

Best Tower Defense in the App Store!!!

I have played many tower defense games before, watched them go by download after delete, but this is the first one I spent money on! When I first played the original kingdom rush, I loved it. It delivers great artwork and gameplay with a variety of levels along with excellent storyline and it doesn't even require wifi. I wanted to continue the series, I haven't gotten frontiers quite yet but this game is definitely worth the money at only $0.99! If you are not sure, than download the original game (Kingdom Rush) for free and see how you like it. Like most other reviews, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun, addictive Tower Defense. I hope this review helped you, Have a great day!
