You hear the crowd cheering louder as you are walking down the champion hallway…

It is 2050. Something crazy happened. It appears that most people traded their Football Jerseys, Basketballs and Baseball Bats for a deck of Tower Duel cards. The game is literally everywhere - In stadiums, on schoolyards, in office spaces.

The Tower Duel inventor “Maxx King” is now world-famous, putting his face wherever he can – this morning you even saw it on your cereal box!

You realize the crowd is cheering your name…

You have spent weeks selecting your 4 Runner and 4 Tower Cards for this match. Runners destroy your opponent’s Power Core and Towers defend your own Power Core.

Your opponent is a top player. His duels are frequently broadcasted worldwide and you have studied them all: He beats his opponents with the “Surfer” Card, which accelerates on straight paths. Most players build their towers in straight lines, making it easy for Surfers to reach and destroy their power cores.

But not tonight! You look at the tower card in your hand - The Quad Striker. Its Energy Damage is highly effective against the Surfers Impulse Barrier. You also equipped it with the legendary Octa Striker Rune, making it shoot 8 projectiles instead of 4. A famous scientist recently calculated that due to the vast variety of runes, there are more card variations in Tower Duel than atoms in the Universe. How crazy is that?!

You look at two Runner cards in your hand. The Marine and the Mech! They have served you well since the beginning of your journey.

Some refer to Marines as cannon fodder, but they are invaluable when it comes to generating energy income: Building Towers or sending Runners costs energy. But! Every time you send Runners, your energy income increases. Simple! Send lots of Runners to get more energy in the long run!

Your plan is to spam Marines early on, only to later afford The Mech! Mechs are expensive but extremely durable. You shiver from excitement imagining the look on your opponent’s face when that level 3 Mech wave hits his stadium half!

The cheers reach their climax as you step on your podium inside the massive stadium. Your gaze wanders across thousands of cheering fans and flashing lights. You notice your opponent on the other side of the stadium and the hidden playfield between the two of you.

Maxx King’s Hologram Face appears and shouts “3, 2, 1 GO!” and the Map unveils!

Perfect! A small map, a few trees as obstacles, only one power core. You quickly place a few Quad Striker towers having them form a path with curves to slow down those Surfers.

Next, you send a big wave of Marines fully depleting your energy balance. You joyfully notice that your energy counter now fills up twice as fast, while your opponent’s rocket tower crushes your Marines.

WAIT! He only built one rocket tower? A few shielded Runners could end the game right here. BUT, sending Shield Spiders now does not fit in your grand master plan. You must decide now!

Suddenly, the opponent's dropship hits your playfield … JETPACK MARAUDERS! WHEN DID HE START USING THAT CARD?!

Terrified you watch how 5 Jetpack Marauders bypass your tower maze elegantly jumping over the first single tower and effortlessly reach your Power Core.

… 14, 13, 12, 11, 10 LIFE POINTS LEFT!

Most original PvP app since Clash Royale‘s debut

Tower Duel - TD Royale combines the best concepts from games like Clash Royale, BTD Battles and Xeno Tactic. Yeah, the chest thing has been done to death, but it’s almost necessary for this game type. This game combines the PvP aspects of Bloons Battles with the TD path blocking element of Xeno Tactic, and it works so well.

Another reason that I felt the need to write this review is the upgrade system, which I love. Usually it’s the same old hit upgrade and watch all the stats go up, but this is different. In this game you roll a slot that gives you two potential upgrades (like unit cost vs Fire rate), you then pick the stat that you want for that tower/runner. The are numerous stats so it allows for a lot of diversity in upgrading your deck. Leveling up via XP unlocks all of your chests instantly, which is also really cool.

Highly recommended for fans of PvP and TD, as long as you don’t mind F2P wait timers.

Another game where you have to spend 💰💵

I had stopped playing the game a year ago. I started playing the game recently and quickly remembered why I stopped playing it. The game is fun and before you know it your playing for hours. I just can’t get past the fact that it’s designed in away where they keep you stagnant on a certain level until you finally buy one of their packs to upgrade your cards. Only then can your runners be strong enough to advance to the next level. Then again you’ll get to a point where you keep loosing because your cards aren’t strong enough. The worst past is the trophies system. I’ve played for hours at a time and noticed that you only get awarded a couple of trophies when you win but as soon as you loose just once they take away 10+ trophies. I just won 3 games in a row and ever time I won I was awarded 3 trophies. So for those 3 wins I accumulated 9 trophies. The next game which was my 4th I lost then they take away 13 trophies. That’s so discouraging and annoying!! All these little things aren’t a coincidence, it’s designed this way for a reason!! 💰just when you think your getting ahead they send you further back !!

Developer Response ,

Hey DJ Don Chito,

thanks a lot for your feedback! We are working on more short and mid-term goals on the way to the top ranks. Daily challenges are coming in the future and we'll also try to create leaderboards beyond the Top 30. We are a small self-funded Indie Team, but we are working day and night to improve the game :D

Hope you'll be there to check it out ;)

Amazing Game Definitely Recommend

Wow, I mean this game completely blew me away. I am so impressed with this game, I usually don’t like mobile games especially TD games. But this Tower Defense game is amazing! You need to try it! I’ll guarantee you will enjoy it, and if you don’t enjoy it your a hater of how fantastic this game is. It’s like a good mixture of Bloons TD Battle with the “eco” and strategy. Of course you know Bloons TD battles doesn’t require much strategy which is why this game is so fun! I enjoy that you can choose the path of the enemies your enemy sends! Please try out this game!
