Sanctum 2 came to PC and Xbox 360 earlier this year. Our own Patrick Hancock reviewed it, ultimately enjoying the colorful sequel, which trends more towards first-person shooter than its tower defense leaning predecessor. Which sounds good...   read

The offensive leads to the defensive in Toy Rush

One of the cutest-looking games that I saw at PAX Prime was Uber Entertainment's Toy Rush. Don't let the cuteness deceive you, though. Toy Rush is shaping up to be a surprisingly deep and fun title.  The developers most often rec...   read

Alien bugs want you dead in PS4/Vita RTS Final Horizon

One of the many indie developers currently working with Sony is Eiconic Games. They're calling their RTS Final Horizon, which apparently takes cues from Space Invaders and Aliens, "the evolution of tower defense." More tower defense, huh? H...   read

Uber is trying its hand at tower defense with Toy Rush

The next game from the makers of Monday Night Combat and the upcoming Planetary Annihilation is going in an altogether different direction. Toy Rush is a card-centric tower defense title built for mobile devices. If, like me, this is one o...   read

Orcs Must Die! 2 adds Steam Workshop support

While I didn't stick around with Orcs Must Die! 2 like I did with its predecessor, it still provided some decent action/tower defense gameplay. In a move that will hopefully breathe new life into the title on PC, developer Robot Entertainme...   read

Review: Go Home Dinosaurs!

Go Home Dinosaurs! is a game that will draw immediate comparisons to Plants vs. Zombies. From its cutesy art style, to its carefully constructed tower defense-based gameplay, much of this iPad experience will recall hours playing the belove...   read

Review: CastleStorm

Hey kids! Do you like smashing stuff in Angry Birds, but wish it was just a bit more...medieval? How about a bit of troop management? Spells? Swords? Sheep? Less birds, more beards? All this and more await you in CastleStorm!   read

Review: Sanctum 2

I think the first Sanctum game surprised a lot of people. It took the intellectual strategy aspect of tower defense games and combined it with the more action-oriented first-person shooter genre to create a unique, wonderful experience. San...   read

Review: Anomaly 2

Don’t let the screenshots fool you: This isn’t the game you think it is. The first Anomaly was an unexpected sleeper hit that found a successful formula on flipping tower defense on its head by putting the player in the role ...   read

Defense Grid 2 lives on despite Kickstarter falling short

The Kickstarter campaign for Defense Grid 2 was an odd one; instead of pitching purely to make a full game, there were rewards to expand the original Defense Grid at various tiers. So although the team only received enough backing to create...   read

Review: Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger

PAX: Sanctum 2 upgrades the original in every way

When the original Sanctum came out, it took the indie world by storm. As a first person tower defense game in 2011 (that kicked ass by the way), it was pretty unique. Coffee Stain Studios looks to repeat that success with a fully featu...   read
