  • Summary: 50% off! Get ready for the goriest, bloodiest, hack-and-slash monster attack game you’ve ever seen. The only game where attack IS the best form of defense!

    ABOUT
    Crazy monsters lurk in the dark of night, trapped behind the rusty iron graveyard gates. As the Gate Keeper, you must
    keep the monsters behind bars and stop them from escaping by any means necessary. This is classic castle defense with a twist: no gun turrets, blocks or speed reduction – just all out ATTACK with explosive weapons and action-packed combat!

    FEATURES

    GAME MODES FOR EVERYONE
    Dive into a Campaign Mode for hours of gameplay, or unlock Endless Mode which features non-stop monsters on the rampage! Then there’s Boss Rush Mode where you face the big boys, and they ain’t happy.

    CRAZY MONSTERS
    A total of 20 manic monsters and five imposing boss characters including Frank Stein, Roger Rattlebone and Chainsaw Hewitt. Each enemy has unique skills and weaknesses so you’ll need to change tactics to survive.

    UPGRADE YOUR ARSENAL
    Kill monsters to earn cash, then buy new weapons and upgrade them to defy the never-ending monster assault. Weapons include a saber, machine gun, grenades, flame thrower and when all else fails, nuke ‘em!

    A MASSIVE MONSTER ALMANAC
    Unlock all of your enemies in the Monster Almanac, which also reveals your Kill Count and Stats.

    Despite its very minor flaws, Monster Mayhem is one of the best tower defense games produced to date.

    Monster Mayhem is an excellent game, regardless of genre. It's addicting, easy to play, and looks just fantastic.

    The ability to upgrade weapons is what hooked me in the end, so despite the fact that the game has some slight framerate issues (which I hope to see fixed in an update), I'll be revisiting this one soon.

    With Monster Mayhem a new kind of action game is born: the Tower Offense. So no passive defense, no war machines set in a battle camp, no position strategy; only violence, weapons and armament management, but of course with smile. Blood and comicality are wisely mixed in this game and if you are bored about the classic "tower defense" games, this is what you are looking for.

    While not original in the slightest, Monster Mayhem is frighteningly fun.

    On the face of the game is a simple looking castle defense game, but peel that back and you'll find more of a gallery shooter than the flicking frenzy of other castle defenders.
