Ratings and Reviews
This franchise holds a special place in my heart since I played this game back in early high school (about to graduate college now). Revisiting the franchise has shown me that I didn’t remember the games with rose colored glasses. I enjoyed the original and frontiers as much as when I first played it. So there wasn’t much I could do to resist buying this sucker once I became aware of its existence. Sure enough it’s just as awesome as the others with some of its own new polishing added to the popular formula of the game.
My one and only gripe is that it’s all been a little repetitive. I say this only because the same basic formula has been followed very closely with only slight changes made. Visually it’s pretty different and thus *feels* different. But it doesn’t expand upon the game’s core concept to the degree that I desire. I’d love to see upgrade trees expanded and new tower types added in addition to the originals. I think that’d be a fun and exciting way to freshen up the formula. With that being said I hope the new game shakes things up in a way that surprises us long time fans:)
paid 7$-asking updating!
When my wishes come true 5 star! I know how much you guys need 5 stars it means a lot to you all! )I have bought myself 7$ dragon so I like you all as a group of support in this game to create a change I like to offer you guys! I payed for it so I own my wish! GRAND me "3" WISHES!(1)I like you guys to lower the cost of items that I need to buy with diamonds by 1/2 price! (2)extende the time by (2x-3x)longer! because those items are super expensive and last so short amount of time! (3)Check out the app of BUILDAWAY! And my wish would be to copy the method from that app for daily bonuses!(14 days only that after finished repeat over again 1-14. Just replacing the cases to diamonds,coins,(time skip(free iteam that you can only buy with diamonds),same rules!(if you miss 48hrs!(the list resets to day 1!),and something very good each 14th day like the 999 diamonds item for ex)(each 14th day add some different!)something very expansive(like a free hero!)(to 7$ worth!)
This game is phenomenal!
I’ve been a fan of the kingdom rush series for many years, and this game it probably my favorite, all of the heroes are really cool (even the ones that don’t cost real money)
The game has really cool campaign missions, Easter eggs, the towers are all well balanced and cool, and there’s a wide difficulty spectrum for all players. Definitely worth the cost, and I’d even recommend buying a hero for your play-through if you really wanna rock the game, though they are kinda expensive. My only complaint is that the game is two completely different copies on phones and tablets, meaning, if you switch from a phone to tablet or vice versa on the same account, you will have to buy the game again (and all the heroes in said game, I learned this the hard way) so if you use both devices think before you buy.
TLDR: Awesome strategy with unrequired monetization, though incompatible from tablets to phones. Definitely worth the buy!
