    If you've never tried tower defense and you want a great introduction to the genre, Kingdom Rush is perfect. If you're devoted to the genre and want to play the prominent examples of it, this is absolutely up your street. But if you've played one or two prototypical tower defense games and are looking for something new, Kingdom Rush doesn't have much to offer.

    The dudes at ztgd.com are a sad bunch of people. How can a great game like this get 6,9? Here is their lame review with my comments.

It's main strong pointEasily one of the best Tower Defense games ever produced. It's smooth, imaginative, challenging, complicated and fun. It's main strong point is its strategy with simple paths but formidable foes coming from several directions. Your defenses are intricate and diverse with one of the best upgrade systems I've ever used. There's tons of movie references in the clever and well produced voice-overs and the little extras on some levels make it more enjoyable. There really aren't any flaws here aside from the repetitive music track which can be disabled. The iPhone version has an extra that the online free version doesn't have: there are extras that can be purchased to enhance your defenses. The online version doesn't have this option making it harder. I'd actually recommended playing the online version for more of a challenge. This scores up there with Plants vs. Zombies for it's creativity and up with Defense Grid for strategy. Brilliant stuff and it's FREE!!! Full Review »

It's diverse maps, enemies, and tower upgrades keep me coming back, even though I've fully beaten the entire game. And now with the addition of heroes, I know I'll never stop playing and never stop waiting for the next update to come out. Full Review »
