Games very fun and addicting but not to the point where you HAVE to play like a lot of games are becoming. Practically no ads unless you watch them for unnecessary but helpful bonuses and there is ALWAYS something to do. Levels get progressively hard but never to difficult and there is an endless mode to farm currency if you get stuck. Loads of upgrades and weapons/traps/spell towers to choose from to better fit your play style such as ice, fire, lightning (personal favorite) explosive, rapid fire, shield bashing, and the good old all arounder.

I highly recommend give this game a spin if you like any sort of strategy, rpg, and tower defense games. It is very well rounded to suit any type of player.

Thank you for the great feedback. We really tried hard to create a fair balance between progression and grind. Happy that you like it. Greetings, the Grim Defender team ;)

Solid game

Certainly has its flaws, I think only one guy works on it, even so it is way higher quality overall than other games, the overall scaling of everything is done very well, levels 100+ just as engaging and fun as lvl 1

So far so good!

At level 50 now and I’m liking the resource management/spending options. There is a lot to buy do you have to think ahead re: strategies/builds. I’ll prob do a reset and apply what I’ve learned so far to a more focused build.
