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 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...

505 Games and Hidden Path Entertainment have announced that the sequel to the 2008 tower defense hit Defense Grid: The Awakening will launch on September 23. Hidden Path Entertainment hosted demos of Defense Grid 2 during gamescom last week...

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...

Defense Grid 2 hands-on photo

Defense Grid 2 will welcome user-created content

Hidden Path Entertainment sure does know how to make some good videogames. Defense Grid and its expansion are a blast for any tower defense fan, but they've also done Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Age of Empires II HD. They're c...

Anomaly trilogy to close with Anomaly Defenders

I loved the first two Anomaly games for how they turned traditional tower defense mechanics on their head to make something fun and different. I'm not so sure about the announcement of the series' final installment, revealed today by ...

 
 
Defender's Quest photo

Composer Nobuo Uematsu joins Defender's Quest II

There's really nothing more that needs to be said about Defender's Quest II: Mist of Ruin for me to be interested in it -- that's how much I liked the last game, which remains one of my favorite tower-defense titles. Today's news, then, is ...

 
 
Dungeon Defenders 2 photo

Dungeon Defenders 2 Pre-alpha gameplay with Max Scoville

For those of you who missed it, despite it being on almost every platform imaginable, Dungeon Defenders is masterful mixture of co-op, RPG, lootfest, tower defense action. Seriously, you can play it on your phone or it's free with an Xbox ...

CastleStorm heading to mobile devices

CastleStorm came out for Xbox Live Arcade, PC, and PlayStation Network last year and we overall liked the game. Well now it's coming out for iOS and Google Play devices as CastleStorm - Free to Siege. The mobile version, as you may have gue...

Legendary Wars marches on to Android

It's been three years, but one of my favorite mobile strategy titles, Legendary Wars, has finally come to Android, via the Google Play Store. In this RTS-RPG hybrid you directly control an ever growing army of knights, wizards, archers, an...

Here's 30 more seconds of PvZ: Garden Warfare

PopCap's released a new video for its upcoming third-person shooter take on the much loved tower-defense franchise, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. It's short, and really only exists to let everyone know that they can now pre-order the...

 
 
Block Blocks photo

Block Blocks is fun to say, perhaps fun to play

From its description as a "tower defense-inspired puzzle game," Block Blocks doesn't sound amazing, but in motion it looks like it could be quite hectic, and it almost has an early Bit.Trip aesthetic to it. The gameplay is explained succin...

Defender's Quest II looks prettier and has a turtle-tank

I'm unsure how many of you played Defender's Quest. Yes, it wasn't pretty to look at -- but it was a rather excellent tower-defense title, one that featured rock-solid mechanics and a commendable attempt at telling an engaging story. The se...

 
 
CastleStorm PS3/Vita photo

Angry beards: CastleStorm coming to PS3, Vita

Vikings versus knights. That's the conceit of Zen Studios' CastleStorm, which our own Ian Bonds enjoyed well enough when it original launched on XBLA. It's a much more in-depth Angry Birds of sorts, with real-time strategy and tower defens...

MOBA aspects of Dungeon Defenders II removed

There was backlash when Trendy Entertainment announced Dungeon Defenders II. While the game was always going to retain its tower-defense foundation, the studio was planning to add a competitive, MOBA-style mode. That didn't sit well, ultim...
