    Aegis Defenders comes highly recommended. The level design is inspired, challenging players to adapt their playstyle on the fly, and the gameplay is riveting and enjoyable. And it's all just so charming, with vibrant characters, witty dialogue, and a story that unfolds at a natural pace.

    Aegis Defenders is an indie that has a chance to be a standout of 2018. Most of the key ingredients to a winning formula are here; engaging and addictive gameplay on both the solo and multiplayer fronts, a nice presentation, and just the right amount of innovation.
  3. Aegis Defenders mixes platform, puzzle and the tower defense genres pretty well and gets a high score because of this. But the lack of story is what dings the likeability. Pretty sure few people won't understand what is going on with the story and so forth.

    Aegis Defenders renews the platform genre and combines it with tower defense elements. As a result, GUTS gives us strategic depth and a very enjoyable experience, especially in cooperative mode. Moreover, its lore and its pixel-art are charming and excellent.

    With a local co-op buddy Aegis Defenders becomes a fun mix of genres, but when playing solo it can be an exercise in frustration.

    The strange premise of Aegis Defenders is kept up on its feet by its consistent gameplay mechanics and beautiful aesthetics. Some flaws come from balance and repetition, but this is definitely a strange idea put in practice in a good way.

    A bold game remarkably combines platform games with tower-defense strategies. Unfortunately, its originality does not resonate with its quality. Neither part of Aegis Defenders is finished properly. And the biggest problem is, the game is almost unplayable –unless you have a fellow gamer for local multiplayer.
