Rock of Ages II photo

Ace Team and Atlus are doing Rock of Ages II

Ace Team is making a sequel to 2011's fantastic action/tower defense game Rock of Ages and I found the news so surprising and uplifting that I forgot I was sick for a few minutes there. I'm that into it. As a boulder, you weave around or j...

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...

 
 
Star Fox Guard review photo

Review: Star Fox Guard

The thing about first impressions is you only get one. An initial brush with something or someone can oftentimes leave an indelible mark on our minds. Whether justly or not, it can frame our perceptions for a long time to come. How somethin...

 
 
Aegis of Earth review photo

Review: Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault

Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is a frustrating game. Not because it’s difficult (it sure isn’t) and not because of its nonsense mouthful of a title (although that sure doesn’t help). It’s frustrating because the...

Toy Soldiers photo

Cobra Commander and Assassin's Creed, together at last

After showing He-Man and G.I. Joe in Toy Soldiers: War Chest, Ubisoft noted that it would announce two more licensed armies for Signal Studio's latest tower defense/action game. We dreamed big, as you do. That was a mistake. Those last two ...

 
 
Cosmochoria review photo

Review: Cosmochoria

When I first played Cosmochoria at PAX, I had to be pulled away from the demo station because of an appointment. The game's blend of calming gardening mixed with tower defense and space spelunking really jived with me. As I left, devel...

It's He-Man vs. G.I. Joe in the new Toy Soldiers

Lot of smaller but still rather cool announcements this week ahead of E3. Toy Soldiers: War Chest is fleshing out its roster of original toy armies with the likes of He-Man and G.I. Joe. This series, if you've never played, is a mix of tow...

Orcs Must Die! takes tower defense to the tabletop arena

Orcs Must Die! has truly made it. After a few entries in the main series, the scrappy little tower defense from Robot Entertainment now has a board game in the works, designed by Petersen Games. Orc Must Die! The Boardgame comes in two fla...

Stop home invaders with traps and towers in Dungeon Warfare

These past couple weeks, the time I would normally spend reading right before bed has gone toward Kingdom Rush and its sequels. Those stars are throwing off my sleep schedule in a major way, and I can't deny it any longer: I'm back into to...

 
 
Dungeon Defenders II photo

Dungeon Defenders II is shaping up nicely on both PS4 and PC

Trendy Entertainment has already bestowed Dungeon Defenders II upon its most invested fans. In fact, they've had it for more than a month now. "Invested" is the only way to describe those people -- both financially and mentally -- as t...

 
 
 
Defender's Quest photo

Defender's Quest HD coming as free update

Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is one my favorite tower defense games, right up there with Immortal Defense, but I haven't gone back to play it again. That'll have to change soon -- there's an HD re-release with new cutscene art,...

Dungeon of the Endless leaves Early Access

French independent studio Amplitude's Dungeon of the Endless is leaving Steam Early Access today. Staying true to its roguelike nature, if you picked the game up during the Early Access phase, your progress will be wiped and you'll have to...

 
 
Fortified photo

Fortified is a fun 1950s sci-fi take on base defense

Leading up to PAX Prime, Clapfoot released a trailer for its base defense shooter Fortified. It caught my eye for a few reasons, notably the '50s sci-fi movie theme and its general resemblance to Double Fine's Iron Brigade (formerly Trenche...

Toy Soldiers: War Chest is my kind of tower defense

The Toy Soldiers games were a blast on Xbox Live Arcade and I'm expecting more good things from Toy Soldiers: War Chest, coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year. My favorite tower defense titles are the ones that let you take direc...

Over The Top Tower Defense coming to PC, Mac

It seems odd enough to do a sequel to Over the Top, the 1987 film starring truck driver/competitive arm wrestler Sly Stallone trying to win a life for him and his son. It's even weirder that it would take the form of a tower defense game t...

Freaking Meatbags is tower defense with a unique style

"Meatbags." There are few more apt terms to represent the views of a theoretical intelligent robot than the word Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic's HK-47 used to refer to people. Considering its timelessness it's actually a surprise t...
