Flash TD Game of the Month: Kingdom Rush
« on: July 29, 2011, 01:58:48 PM »
It's a been a long time since I featured as Tower Defense Game in this spot -- but not for lack of looking.

By way of the excellent JayIsGames site, Dora brings us news of a terrific new flash tower defense game called Kingdom Rush.  Dora has a great review it so i'll just send you over to her review.

Quote
Analysis: Kingdom Rush is an absolute gem of a defense game, and probably one of the best examples of the genre to date. Not only does it look and sound fantastic, but the gameplay confidently strides that invisible line between being too complicated and just strategic enough for players to really sink their teeth into.

Be very careful of this game.. it gets seriously addictive and difficult.. with a constant supply of new things that make it impossible to stop playing.

Just finished the game (on easy):

Every aspiring TD game maker should study this TD -- one of the best i've played.  Best part was there was always some new tower or enemy to discover from start to end.

And I normally don't like TD games where you have to do manual clicking for some weapons, but this game had a great balance of that.

The only missing component was the ability to influence the path taken by enemies..

Overall a truly great TD game  :up:

That's good game. So I closed the window after an hour or so. :)

It's almost 20 MB -- nasty for a browser...

I've been avoiding reading this thread until I had a PC capable of playing this game, but I noticed so many posts here that I figured it would show up on my unread feed again if I took a peek at it now.

The graphical style of that screenshot looks like/reminds me of PixelJunk Monstersw for the PlayStation 3, which is a TD game I always intended to buy since I really liked the demo but for some reason never have.

Anyway that's about all I can add to the discussion right now since I haven't had a chance to play it yet.

I finally played it and completed the first four levels and a couple challenge modes. It is a really fun game!

Damn you Mouser! This game has now eaten too many hours of my life.

Playing on Normal difficulty and have met J.T. - tried to beat the level 3 times so far and failed, despite having 3 gold stars on every level to date.

Grrrr... Away from home now and didn't take my cookie with me, so shan't be able to continue until next week.

Thanks for this recommendation!! I'm in love with this evil vicious game. Hope they can develop a pc version. Here you can find the forum that the game developers have just run for their games.

Finally back home and rediscovered Kingdom Rush in my browser window.

Finished the game on Normal difficulty - yay! hooray!

A very polished game which could easily have been a retail product.
