I have to say, this is not my favorite one, but I still really like it out of the KR series! This game really sticks to one main story line and really focuses on the conflict between the dark elves and the good guys. My main concern about this is that they don’t introduce a lot of new enemies, they just focus on all of the dark elf variants. A small thing that I happily noticed is that they finally added the special mini bosses in the endless modes to the enemy encyclopedia. I love how they put in little details that let you build the history of kingdom rush, it really immerses me a lot more.
A great sequel with a unique turn on the classic Kingdom Rush formula
I highly recommend just leveling Eridan until the full hero pack offer ($15) pops up. It’s the best buy and totally worth it. This is the 3rd I’ve played in the series and they just keep getting better. I’m very pleased with the UI changes. I’m obsessed with tower defense in general, and this series is by and far the best the genre has to offer; the rest of TD on the App Store are mostly shady, ad-laden, pay-to-progress Chinese imitators of this series. The art and maps are beautiful and engaging. As with previous installments, there are Easter eggs and achievements scattered throughout. Frikken love this series. <3
This is a very high quality TD game. This game challenges your strategy abilities by sending a very wide array of enemies at you with different gimmicks that you have to account for when you build your tower defense. I would recommend this game to anyone.
Indeed you will have lots of challenges and fun! You play one of these games you want them all 😄 Excellent Job Guys!!
This game is awesome and has great locations and enemies. I am however disappointed by how easy the bosses were. (Besides Godieth and bram.) also, the side quests after finishing the campaign were lacking. Great game nonetheless, I would recommend it.
It looks interesting but I can’t figure out how to build a tower. I have gold and it lets me position tower but it won’t build anything. Needs a basic tutorial.
No updates for characters or increased levels has happened which really bugs me! Because it makes the game less enjoyable and then begins to die out and become less popular. My advise to kingdom rush is to be more creative and active!!! Thank you.
It is an amazing Game
Very clever design, entertaining, great graphics. Most of the levels are challenging but fun. Unfortunately, they drop into the play-to-win model at the later stages, teeing up levels that are impossible to beat without spending cash. I’m ok with that for a free game, but for one that charges to download, they automatically lose two stars.
