FDG Entertainment was on hand at GDC to show off a couple of their upcoming projects, one of which was a very interesting tower defense game called Crystal Siege. Right off the bat it reminds me a lot of Kingdom Rush [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)], which isn't a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination, since Kingdom Rush is fantastic. But Crystal Siege also throws in a few more elements that give you a more hands-on approach to tower defense, like directly controlling your main character to help fight off enemies and neat environmental features that you can activate and use to your advantage. Take a look at our hands-on video of the game for a closer look.
Tower defense isn't one of my favorite genres, despite its prevalence on the App Store, but every once in a while I'll come across one that I really get into. I think Crystal Siege may be just such a title, I really liked what I saw of it so far. It should be hitting sometime within the next few months, so keep an eye out for it.
