Toy Soldiers: War Chest photo

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...

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 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,...

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 photo

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...

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 ...

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...
