    Hey all,

    Never really been big into tower defence games, but after talking to a few friends about their love for kingdom rush, I figure I'd give the genre a shot. I've looked at several different ones but I thought I'd throw it out to the experts for their suggestions.

    Any and all suggestions are appreciated, however, my preference would be towards anything that has rpg-like elements and I'm Huge on Fantasy ( magic, dragons, etc).

    What do you folks recommend or what have you enjoyed most? Thanks
     
  2. OTTTTD and the whole Anomaly series.

    I would recommend the recently released Crystal Siege HD as is has a main character you control and level up and equip with new gear, really a fun game.

    Coincidentally I was just looking at that same game. It appears fantasyesque with rpg elements however, I read complaints about the difficulty, apparently it's quite tough?

    How have you found it? Did you need or feel any desire to purchase the IAPs ?

    IAPs are not recommended in the game coz it's a crutch for the early difficulty modes where it can make you powerful, but the last difficulty mode will provide you with stronger equips than the IAP ones.

    I have found that if you don't mind replaying the levels for gold for better equipment that the game is quite fun. It is more of an RPG than a Tower Defense game surprisingly but that is fine with me. Your heroes equipment is quite important really because my favorite types of equipment will boost my mana pool and my mana regeneration allowing me to cast spells more frequently. Also different types of armor allow you to block more enemies with your hero. The equipment is randomized with different stat and skill bonus and that really makes it feel like there is an endless amount of gear, I have even been lucky enough to have had enemies drop gear a few times and is part of the reason I enjoy replaying the levels.

    Anyway sorry for the text wall but hopefully there is some useful info, let me know if you have any questions.:)

    No one mentioned "Tower Defense" by com2us. It's not bad.
    My favorite is Kingdom Rush. Many games are influenced by the game in art and gameplay aspects.

    My husband is crazy about Kingdom Rush, and I'm not sure that he familiar with all those other games that have been posted here. So... I think he's gonna be very happy when I send him this thread. Thx :)
