A rude gang of heroes has turned your perfectly creepy castle into a cheery amusement park. What’s an evil wizard to do? There’s only one answer: revenge!
Kingdom Rush Vengeance flips this beloved tower defense series on its ear, putting you in the role of the malevolent mage Vez’nan. You’re none too happy that the realm has been overrun by dwarves, Vikings, and the rest of their righteous pals, so you set out to make things wonderfully wrong again.
Everything that makes the Kingdom Rush games such a blast is back in Vengeance, including tons of different tower types (the rocket-riding goblins are a real hoot) and piles of new nasty heroes. The hand-drawn art style is crisper than ever, and tongue-in-cheek humor abounds.
Placing and upgrading defensive towers to ward off waves of attackers is only half the battle. You’ll also need to get your hands dirty commanding epic heroes and activating powerful artifacts. Have your dragon Beresad blow Cyclocopters out of the sky—he’s really good at that—while you hurl vials of Valyrian Fire in the path of blunderbuss-wielding Tinbeard Gunmen.
A dizzying combination of towers, heroes, spells, and items can be in the mix at any given time, making every level of Vengeance feel fresh. There are dozens of wicked new upgrades to help you stave off the forces of good too. Try adding Tesla coils to the level’s exit flags for last-minute jolts to invaders who think they’re home free.
Kingdom Rush Vengeance brings back familiar, evil faces from the previous games in the series, but this time they’re on your side. Being bad never felt quite so good.
