    Sol Survivor is one heck of an indie game. It’s an enrichment of the tower defense genre and worth its small price. The singleplayer alone offers more fun than your average top game and the different multiplayer settings make it required purchase for fans. Everyone should give this game a chance and download the demo. It’s a fantastic mix of casual and deep gameplay.
  2. For those that are really into the genre it is a no brainer, for anyone who has enjoyed a tower defense game before it is still a solid investment.
  3. Sol Survivor is a nice surprise from the indie world; funny, well structured, with an exceptional longevity, is a game that can steal a lot of your free time. Maybe it won't be the best graphic ever, but it works very well.
  4. If you're after something laid-back but enjoyable you could do far, far worse. [June 2010, p.101]
  5. A rather bland entry in an increasingly overcrowded genre.
  6. 65
    Sadly the end result is that when its put up against the tower defense titles on the PC it really can't compete.
  7. Only the most hardcore fans of Tower Defense will enjoy Sol Survivor.

    This is the first tower defense I've ever played and unlike Defense Grid: The Awakening, it is quite flexible and has much more of a variety of orbital support and turrets that can be used in the game. Full Review »

    When i first heard of Sol Survivor I didn't know a thing about the game. I bought it on Steam when released and since than I've been addicted. When i play this game is like I meditate. The music and the slow gameplay contribute to a calm feeling in a way no other game has. Sol Survivor is simply the best TD game ever made. Full Review »

    Sol Survivor is boring tower defense game that loses a lot of what makes flash tower defense games fun.

    The maps are bland and generally
    not well laid out. Towers can't be upgraded until you've beaten the campaign. There's no way to speed the game up or call the next wave even if you've killed everything.

    The sound is tending to awful and why I gave this a 4 and not a 5. It feels disconnected as it utterly generic. The graphics are simple and brown and would be better had they not been 3D. Placing turrets accurately when zoomed out is a pain but as there is no minimap you can't tell where the enemies are when zoomed in.

    Yuck.
