Choose your cards carefully and play them strategically - there will be heavy resistance along the way. Battle everything from small mutated fungi to powerful giant goblins and nagas!

In addition to the story-driven single-player campaign in Prime World: Defenders, each players’ experience is unique thanks to custom generated missions!

I like spaceships! ,

Great game but hard to see.

I have completely finished this game and unlocked and fully upgraded all cards and did it all for free. Took a while but is possible. I really like this game a lot and have played it for years. The only gripe I have is that the text and icons are so small you can hardly see them. This is on an ipad mini and i can only imagine a phone. It didn't used to be like this. Please fix so you can have larger text and icons. I really enjoy the beautiful graphics but every thing i have to read is so tiny. Am i missing a zoom feature or something? This makes no sense. Love the game, best tower game out there, please fix so it can be 5 stars!

Great game!

I used to play the tower defense games on Warcraft 3 RoC and Lotd. This game reminds me of those games. It has in-app purchases (just like most others), but so far I haven't even been tempted to buy. You earn the main currency with each level achieved. This game is awesome. You earn new towers when you collect cards from beating levels. Definitely recommend to anyone who likes tower defense games!

It’s a start

Gorgeous visuals, but the bar where the towers are is so small you can’t see what you are getting. All the writing is just SO small, and I’m playing on an iPad Air 2, can’t begin to imagine what gameplay is like on a phone. Really want to give this five stars for the graphics alone, but will not be playing until the size issues are fixed. Only played one level, so didn’t have a chance to have any other issues. At the end of the level though, the background spun around while the middle showed you how you did, that literally made me sick, you can’t do that... anyone with a tendency toward motion sickness will hurl... Good luck, can’t wait to play when issues are fixed.
