Duking it Out

A lot of the strategy behind winning at Kingdom Rush Origins HD is knowing how to use choke points.

  • Every level has one or more choke point – an area where the enemy is funneled through and is more open to attack, usually because of the environment around them. Figure each of them out and focus on using it to your advantage.
  • One good way of using a choke point to your advantage is to create a blockade of an archer tower along with a melee tower.
  • Archers are good at dishing out the damage but they’re too easy to get away from on their own. Combine them with a melee tower, however, and the ground troops slow the enemy down, enabling your archers to pick them off.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
300 Dwarves is a decent tower defense game, but it doesn’t bring anything revolutionary to the genre.

We adored Kingdom Rush when it first came out for the iPad at the end of last year. It offered an incredibly potent tower defense game that made a five minute quick session turn into hours.

Now, iPhone owners get to enjoy that level of addiction with the release of Kingdom Rush for iPhone! Priced at $0.99, the game pits heroes against hordes of orcs, trolls, evil wizards and more. Fortunately, a plethora of towers and spells will help players in their quest to defeat such evil.

Typical tower defense tropes are in there with special abilities to unlock, new tower types and the choice of upgrading them. 50 achievements to unlock and many boss battles to compete in will keep players hooked for a long time to come.

With a cartoon fantasy style, optimized for retina displays, Kingdom Rush should prove to enthrall everyone who downloads it.

It’s out now, priced at $0.99.
