Tower defense meets RPG in ambitious Defender's Quest


7:00 PM on 01.20.2012



Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten feels like it was designed by people who really understand what makes the tower-defense genre enjoyable, and how it can be improved. Elements normally found in role-playing games are present here, and there's an intriguing story -- yep, this one is dangerous.

If you're vaguely compelled by the trailer, be sure to try the in-browser demo, which allows you to export save data. Defender's Quest is being sold for $6.99 and that includes all future game updates. The developers were even nice enough to offer a coupon code (DESTRUCT). Use it this month to knock a dollar off the price tag.

Review: Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten

Certain genres more than others can be forgiven when skimping on narrative. I would argue that tower defense games can readily get away this without receiving many complaints, since the act of massacring enemy troops tends to...more
