Review: Kingdom Rush
Out of all the Tower Defense games we've played, this one comes out on top!
View on the App Store: Kingdom Rush HD - Armor Games Inc
Features of Kingdom Rush:
Out of all the Tower Defense games we've played, and we've tried a few, this one comes out on top. Amazing graphics, exciting characters, and challenging levels - it's like playing a mini animated movie. Excellent!
The purpose of Tower Defense games is to stop adversaries from getting through to the other side of a map, usually as they progress along a path leading to the other side. The way to stop them is by building towers with different abilities which vary from shooting things to creating 'heroes' along the path to stop them.
Kingdom Rush does this in a most entertaining and engaging way. Four types of towers (knights, wizards, archers, and artillery) and several types of heroes give you a great selection of defenses to utilize.
Strategy is the key in this game with many levels of increasing difficulty and amazing 'monsters' to battle. Everyone in the family (except our 3 year old) is really enjoying this game.
As I said, the graphics are amazing. They're just like watching an animated cartoon! The upgrades to each tower are exciting and the ability to control the knights and heroes' positions on the map make this game stand out above the competition.
Each stage of the game has three levels. After every level you are rewarded with 'stars' which you can spend enhancing (upgrading) the ability of your warriors. After watching four of us play Kingdom Rush for a short time, it is interesting to find how each of us 'levelled up' our warriors in different ways and had different strategies to win each game.
If you're looking for a great, engaging action/strategy game, Kingdom Rush is it. And as far as Tower Defense goes; Kingdom Rush is one of the best tower defense games of all time.
Our verdict: Excellent!
10 out of 10!
