Sons of Ra

Neat concept and all the characters explore different playstyles. Soundtrack is a big standout, it’s great!

Having played long enough to unlock all the gods, the strategy feels a little too minion-focused at time of review. None of the god abilities buff towers- only disabling or destroying them. Most abilities either damage or buff units already on the board, or summon a super powerful unit. I can reliably win games without building a single structure, and I would like to see the balance shift a bit towards building to really lean into the tower-defense aspect.

Alright quick review under 2 hours played. It’s a FAST paced tower defense with all controls done through the mouse. That brings me to what I dislike so far. Tower defense is cool and all but when I have to hold a mouse button down then select a defense/offense/power by sliding the mouse then placement after that. It’s just not intuitive. It should be abilities and units are selected with the keyboard and placement is through the mouse. That would allow the player to place units and abilities WAY faster.

AMazing TD

AMazing TD

Honestly the game has some work that needs to be done to it but if your looking for a classic starcraft td outside of starcraft this isn’t a bad start. It’s still in early access so there are obviously problems/unfinished parts of it but I think its a great start and already currently gets me on a almost once a day to get my dailies and try the new maps. With a little balance and a little more depth this would be a solid td

Things I would add/change:

  • The upgrades curve doesn’t seem balanced to me, I always get to a certain point and feel like its just a waste unless there is no room left to build new towers.

I’d like to preface this review by saying it was written while the game was in Early Access and that fact was taken into consideration while writing this. AMazing TD is an interesting take on the Tower Defense genre. It reminds me of the Tower Defense (TD) games I used to play as custom games in Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2. It probably reminds me of that because it is a standalone spiritual successor of a Starcraft 2 map I had played previously called Entropy TD.

It’s a deceptively simple appearing Tower Defense game. You build living statues as your towers and they deal with the various waves of enemies. The longer you can keep enemies from exiting the map, the more likely you are to eliminate them. Building a maze and well placed, properly upgraded towers is the key to victory in these sorts of games. AMazing TD goes beyond the basics by also having power fields on the play field that modify the game in some way. Fields that slow, speed up and teleport the enemies, increase the range or damage of your towers or even offering you extra gold are some of the field effects to watch out for when planning your maze.

Siege of Centauri

Siege of Centauri

Siege of Centauri is one of the best looking tower defence games available and as a tower defence aficionado, I would say it is worth playing.

Forgive the comparison, but Siege of Centauri was clearly made by and for people who are looking to scratch their Defense Grid itch. It turns out that Siege of Centauri has some fairly obvious references in it that pay homage to Defense Grid, namely the interface looks almost like it was lifted from Defense Grid and some of the music too. It also has a similar story with advisers popping up between missions to brief you on what the mysterious enemy is up to.

I don’t play many tower defense games. It’s essentially a puzzle, where you try to figure out the most efficient combinations of towers and placements to defend your base. There are features that let you see what is coming, and once you learn the units and iconography, you can definitely develop strategies and plans ahead of time. There are terrific controls for difficulty, as well as mechanics that let you customize and upgrade your available tower selection. I also see capabilities for a survival mode (defend as long as you can) and custom map development. I think there might also be an intent to support steam workshop, so that mods and custom maps can be shared.

Legion TD 2 - Multiplayer Tower Defense

Awesome multiplayer auto-battler, with a thriving, generally nice community, and ongoing development!

Stop waves of enemies!

In Legion TD 2 (LTD) you have to stop enemies that spawn in waves on your ‘lane’. The enemies give a bounty for each kill, and with that gold you can buy new fighters in between the waves. The game gives a recommended value of your fighters for each wave consisting of the total possible value that comes spawning. Depending on the type of units you have put on your lane with all their synergies and positioning, this value can be either too high or too low. For instance, a collection of only tanks (units that soak damage well, but don’t deal much themselves) will probably not clear a wave.

Plays just like the original WC3 map + much, much more, for anyone who is a fan of tower defense, multiplayer/co-op and strategy games, will definitely love this, for the developer AAG i can’t wait to see the extra campaign maps as well as potential dlc content perhaps something event based like a new boss (similar to btd6 like the bloonarius events) or endless mode with different waves to see how long you and a friend or 7 other friends can survive, there is so much potential and i cant wait to see it unfold , but as it is for its price, its well deserved of its positive reviews and again if you’re even remotely thinking of purchasing this game, as Shia LaBeouf would say, “just do it”, you will not regret it.

Battle Brawlers

Battle Brawlers

Battle Brawlers is a game where you build statues on your side of the map and then every several seconds, all statues create a unit (based on from which unit the statue was created) that goes forward and attacks all nearby enemy units.

If the unit gets to the enemy side, then it walks through the enemy portal and teleports to the main lane and tries to kill the enemy War God.

War God is a powerful immobile unit that has high attack and several useful abilities but once it dies, you lose the game. The enemy also can walk through your portal and teleport to the main lane too, where the battle between units contines.

So far i do enjoy this game alot, the basics from the game are easy to understand and the controlls are very simple.

There is alot of stratey involved in the game and there is alot of content for a free to play player.

I have seen alot of problems being fixed in the game and they are trying really hard to improve the game. As well as that i as a player feel like they really listen to the feedback from players. Therefore i think it is really worth a shot playing this game!

A good part of this game is that you can actually get everything in the game without ever paying a single dime. The only downside in my oppinion is that skins for units do give a statboost and if you are gonna be playing free to play it can take quite a while to get the skins unlocked.

Bloons TD Battles

Bloons TD Battles

This game used to be good: fast-paced, pleasantly complex, strategy-based, and lots of adorable monkeys. There were some problems: clan bugs, COBRA tower, cheating, and unwillingness of support staff to do anything about the cheating, but overall it was pretty playable. To play at the highest level, or just have maximum fun, a couple minor purchases were helpful but not required, primarily club access for additional arena modes with special rules.

Instead of fixing those problems, Ninja Kiwi introduced “powers” as a way to squeeze money out of existing players. Basically the game went from being focused on strategy and skill to being focused on grinding to unlock the best powers and use those powers to defeat opponents.

I originally began playing this game because a Youtuber I liked would often play this game with his subscribers. I had originally put off downloading the game even though it was free because of numerous negative reviews had made me wary of this game. The main part of this game that I was originally worried about was this game’s version of a premium membership being club access.

Once I began playing the game I realized that although the game is fun it is also tiring in the beginning as you start with a small fraction of the monkeys. Although at times being limited was frustrating looking back I’m glad they did it this way for a few reasons.

After giving the game even longer time than before I can safely say that this game is not worth playing for new players at the moment. I bought VIP in hopes that the xp leveling system would be decent, but no. Not even close. Ive spent the last 7 hours of my time playing with just the same tower over and over again, and I still need to unlock 2 more tier 4s and all 3 tier 5s. And I used that tower as my main tower.

Ive played for 27 hours so far, and I have 1 tier 5 in total… 1! And ofc that is for the one and only tack shooter. The most broken and unbalanced tower in the game. If you dont use it then be prepared for a way harder game than if you did.

Edit; Ninja Kiwi rewoke the XP system literally one day later. Thank you Ninja Kiwi for actually listening to the community feedback! Also thank you everyone for the free steam points, now I can buy more anime girl profile pictures!

BTD Battles 2 can now finally be the great successor of BTD Battles 1 as I wanted it to be. I’d like to list a few things that I really do enjoy in this game since I was so hard on them before the XP table buff.

  • Graphics and art style is on point. I haven’t really played BTD 6 since I’ve always been so invested in BTD Batles 1. The graphics and art style are very refreshing for me and I tip my beanie to NK.

Element TD 2 - Tower Defense

Element TD 2 - Tower Defense

This game has most of what you’d ever expect out of a Tower Defense and more.

  • There is a campaign that as of writing this contains two chapters(more coming) with plenty of achievements tied to it that you can go for if you want a bigger challenge, it will most likely take some figuring out either way, especially if you want to clear it on Very Hard. You get points for clearing missions and use those points to customize your loadout for each mission. I enjoyed this part of the game more than I expected seeing as I’m not much of a “campaign guy”, but there it is, the developers did a great job on it.

If you have ever liked tower defense games this is for you. It has everything; challenging campaign with achievements, hints if you work for a living and can’t devote endless hours to devise the best strategy, hints that you can also turn off if you like the hard path. You can change the modes from easy to insane, multiplayer with leader boards, a variety of maps, and they are changeable to your style and preference of play. I normally play everything from WOW, Diablo and Starcraft to Steam games like Blackthorne Arena and Ultimate General to Civ6 in a given week, but that has stopped since I found this. I was consumed with beating everything through Chapter 3 and getting 4 stars on each part of the Chapters and all of the achievements. Absolutely the best game for this price on Steam today. I want to do Chapter 4 now but since the patch I am even more interested in replaying all of the first 3 chapters again. That says it all right there. This game is just fun and I haven’t even tried the multiplayer yet because I didn’t think I was good enough until I mastered the chapters in the campaign first. Oh and it can be paused while online so you don’t have to worry about spending 45 minutes into a survival game and right when the ronalds hit real life interferes and you either have to pause the game or lose everything. The creators thought of everything in this game. My highest recommendation for anyone that likes this genre.

Prime World: Defenders 2

Prime World: Defenders 2

the first one was FAR better quality. everything looks a lot uglier in this supposed sequel… and a lot of the game is not even clearly explained (like how fusing works after you get the max number of available towers). try it for free, but won’t recommend spending anything on it.

edit: devs commented, so i guess i should reply them. since they replied, i reinstalled the game to refresh myself on what i disliked about the game. here are the specifics:

1. this was mentioned in one of the highly-upvoted reviews - the “pvp” mechanic is mostly opaque… you have no idea how you ended up matched to these other people, and if they happen to grind their levels hard, your towers will almost always lose those higher-levelled mines.

Recommended ONLY in free mode. I mean it, if you pay even a small amount to buy things, it ruins it completely.

The shop is annoying and the game is blatantly P2W, so I was expecting to write a thumbs down review a day in and uninstall it for good. Instead, discovered it is a helluva good TD game in the genre. If it had just the real-money shop removed and sell it for like Sol Survivor, It would go with high recommendation without doubt.

I advise to read the excellent guide before engaging, it has good tips on resource good allocation, that is important from the start.
