    It may be an old game, but Kingdom Rush is still hugely enjoyable. It is simple but compelling, and when you are down to your last HP and a horde of enemies are bearing down on you, it gets extremely tense.

    Kingdom Rush proves to be a fun and intriguing title, with balanced gameplay and a more than solid technical performance. Even if, given its age, it shows obvious limitations, it represents an excellent opportunity to discover (or rediscover) the Tower Defense genre.

    Kingdom Rush from Ironhide Game Studio is a casual and fun gameplay experience that doesn’t do too much to entertain but does enough to keep you coming back for more.

    Kingdom Rush is the perfect representative of the Tower Defense, with a very interesting adaptation for console.

    It is a faithful 1:1 port of the mobile game, for better or worse. The controls work well in the end but did require some time to get used to. At only $10 at launch, it’s an easy purchase if you’re already a fan or someone new to the series. Here’s to hoping that this is just the start of the franchise porting over to consoles.

    Kingdom Rush’ success is by all means well deserved. Excellent in its proposals, it perfectly masters the codes of Tower Defense to offer us an exciting title. However, being a simple port of the mobile version removing the shop, its interest remains limited when compared to a free title that is similar in every way.

    Was surprised that this finally made it to a console, will try it on switch too, probably even better over there, was a huge hit on the IpadWas surprised that this finally made it to a console, will try it on switch too, probably even better over there, was a huge hit on the Ipad like 10 years ago, game still holds up pretty well, and is still considered as one of the best tower defense games ever made up there with bloons, fieldrunners and iBomber.... Game was made for touchscreens but to my surprise it plays pretty decent with a controller, also the price of the game is pretty good, 10 euro's /dollars is a good price. Expand
