Ratings and Reviews
Cute and strategic
Comparisons to Kingdom Rush aside, this is a very fun “reverse tower defense”. Guiding the main character through hoards of baddies is very fun, and in some fights it gets quite hectic, swiping here and there trying to herd your lil defensive units to safety. Sometimes it’s a little too hectic, and even on my large phone screen it’s easy to poke the wrong unit during a fracas leading to some minor frustration, but it mostly works well.
The graphics are unfortunately the main reason people assume this is a Kingdom Rush clone. The character design definitely has its own style though, and some of the units are downright adorable. The level design is a bit less engaging (I wish I could zoom out!) but definitely serviceable.
All in all this is a solid, unique game, and much more than it appears at first glance.
I love the game but (edit)
Ok I want to buy a unit with money. The Paladin. However, when I purchased the unit, the game crashes. I log back in to see it still not acquired. I buy it again (this time for free due to already purchasing it) but the game crashes once more. This repeats on and on. Why? You already fixed the bug with the bundle purchase. There goes my money down the drain without anything to show for it. Please fix it to the best of your abilities.
Nevermind, after consistently restarting the app it worked all of a sudden but still please fix that bug, it’s quite frustrating.
Quite a good little cartoon tower defense game, clearly inspired by Kingdom Rush, but very unique in its execution. You play as a summoner who can conjure up various summons to defend you on the move, instead of building towers to stop enemies coming towards you. Unfortunately the fast-paced nature of combat and the auto-movement of the summons make it so there's very little actual strategy involved beyond summoning the units - the game tries to claim that positioning them is important, but it really isn't - they position themselves.
Still, it's cute, fun, got a decent plotline, fun twist on traditional tower defense... music isn't great... I'd play it again. But the Kingdom Rush games are much better (with the exception of Vengeance). If you're looking for tower defense and haven't played those, they're easily the best in the genre. (You could also check out Gemcraft Chasing Shadows.)
