Contest: Win a Switch copy of X-Morph: Defense

Conquer the Earth with today's contest for a Switch copy of X-Morph: Defense. Honestly, every video game is about saving Earth. Why? Earth kind of sucks. I mean, would any smart planet allow the state of Florida to exist? I highly doubt it....

Fend off the minions of hell with today's contest: Win Hell Warders for Switch, Steam, or PS4! I don't know about you, but I certainly do my best to keep hell from invading the Earth. Like, I pour salt around my house and say my prayers and...

Get some creepy space scifi with our contest for Genesis Alpha One for PC, PS4, and Xbox One! Space is big. There's lots of weird shit out there -- so much, that it'd probably crush our feeble minds if we saw even a portion of what the big ...

You play as the bad guys in the new Kingdom Rush

I'll always have a soft spot for tower defense games and the Kingdom Rush series is one of my favorites. It just really suits mobile well. After working on the real-time strategy title Iron Marines, developer Ironhide Game Studio is now ret...

Review: Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers

This review nearly had a completely different tone. Halfway through my adventure, as I prepared to go into another tower defense battle against the series antagonist Grocks, I ran into a bug. A terrible bug. The type of bug that makes the g...

Review: PixelJunk Monsters 2

It feels like it's been ages since Q-Games dabbled in tower defense with the original PixelJunk Monsters. The studio has taken quite a few detours since then, all of which have have been interesting in their own right, but the time has fina...

PixelJunk Monsters 2 has a short but sweet demo on PS4 and PC

I was delighted to hear that Q-Games was making a sequel to PixelJunk Monsters. I like the whole PixelJunk line, but Monsters is a particular highlight -- it's one of my favorite tower defense games ever. The studio has released a demo for ...

Defender's Quest is just as easy to love on consoles

It might look unassuming at first glance, but Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is not so secretly one of the best tower defense titles in recent years. It's way up there. The game tells a fairly compelling story, it's mechanically ...

Review: Aegis Defenders

The simple addition of an RTS Use Map Settings (UMS) toggle helped kick off entire genres, including tower defenses and MOBAs. There was a time when the former genre was king, a golden era, if you will. But in recent years it faded into the...

Review: Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder

When Rock of Ages 2 releases on August 29, it'll be almost exactly six years since Jordan reviewed the first Rock of Ages, way back on my birthday in 2011. Back then, it was a quirky palate cleanser from the almost aggressive weirdness...

Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder looks wild

Either I've been asleep at the keyboard or ACE Team and Atlus haven't had much to say about Rock of Ages 2 as of late, because I completely forgot this game was happening. That's maybe for the best, though -- the sequel looks as weird as ev...

For better or worse, Fortnite seems like a real time sink

At E3, I was reunited with Fortnite, Epic's long-in-development-but-almost-there game about gathering resources, building out fortified bases with traps, and gunning down and/or slicing up the incoming zombie horde. This was my third time p...

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is dropping PvP to focus on Survival

I loved Orcs Must Die! and its sequel. I haven't played Orcs Must Die! Unchained, the third game in the trap-laying, crossbow-firing tower defense series, and I get the sense that I'm hardly alone. The player-versus-player focus combined wi...

 
 
Dungeons 2 review photo

Review: Dungeons 2

Dungeons 2 is a heart-breaker. It has a lot of charm, some ambitious ideas, and a genuinely fun dungeon builder buried somewhere deep inside it. If it focused on its strengths, I could see it being a great, laid back entry in the dungeon-bu...

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...
