    Kingdom Rush: Frontiers is highly approachable, but don’t let its humorous comic veneer fool you. Turn up the difficulty, and Ironhide has tuned a remarkably balanced game that juggles punishment and reward in equal measure. Frontiers remains close to form to its predecessor, but recognizing where to make improvements on an already strong formula is an art form all its own.

    Just as polished and poised as you'd expect, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers continues the legacy of its predecessor without really adding anything new.

    A towering achievement. [Sept 2013, p.81]

    This core loop of planning and upgrading defences while plugging the gaps in your frontline is enriched by art that imbues surprising amounts of character into your microscopic soldiers, and sound design that turns the clash of swords and crackling fizz of magic spells into a compulsive symphony.

    However, in the great scheme of things there's little to complain about in this excellent sequel to a great game.

    So the characters may be a tad bit too small, and so some of the more impressive heroes are pretty expensive to buy; these complaints are easily dwarfed by the impeccable tower defense gameplay, the vibrant and lively cartoon visuals, and the deep and lengthy campaign that all make Kingdom Rush: Frontiers a serious force to be reckoned with on the App Store today.

    Kingdom Rush Frontiers is a wonderful tower defense game. All base elements are there, accompanied by a great upgrade system and absurd enemies. We almost afraid to say it, but we're already looking forward to part three.

    There are more upgrades, a greater diversity in environments, and more enemy types than ever before. Fans have likely already grabbed the game at launch - for everyone else, know that this new Kingdom Rush ensures the series remains at the top of this bloated genre.

    Downloadable currencies and content aside, the base game of Kingdom Rush Frontiers is an enjoyable one, and it comes highly recommended to existing fans of the genre.

    Kingdom Rush is varied, deep and accessible. You'll easily entertain yourself for hours on end with it. A truly great iOS game.

    Where Kingdom Rush Frontiers really succeeds is its variety though. The sense of monotony that often plagues tower defense games never sets in, with tons of variety both in settings and enemy types so that you're always facing some fresh challenge.

    Boasting more of everything that made the original so great, Kingdom Rush Frontiers provides fans with all-new ways to keep peace in the kingdom.

    Kingdom Rush Frontiers is a must buy that you just can’t get enough of, and iOS is a better platform with it available.

    Armed with arresting visuals and a slightly irreverent tone, Kingdom Rush Frontiers is a cut above the usual tower defense game.

    I’ll keep going back for more punishment because Kingdom Rush: Frontiers is just that damn good. It’s not only worthy of carrying the title of “sequel to Kingdom Rush,” it’s one of the finest tower-defense games you’ll find anywhere, regardless of platform.

    Kingdom Rush Frontiers is another excellent – albeit now familiar – tower defense entry for strategy fans seeking a potent mix of brains and brawn.

    Easily among the best tower defense games on iOS. You owe it to yourself to play this. Also fixes some issues from the first game, as heroes are now better integrated and barracks troops require fewer upgrades before they're not totally useless. Full Review »

    A great sequel to one of the best TD games out there on any system, this is one of the best games released this year on the iOS. While it's more of an expansion than anything, there's still a ton of here to replay over and over again. This game really continues the rich tradition of the original game. I only took a point off because there's not much of a difference between the first one and this one, but this game is definitely a worthy addition to anyone's collection of iOS games, especially for anyone who bought the first one and loved it.
