Easily one of the better tower defense games in recent times, Kingdom Rush Origins HD is a very enjoyable experience. While you might feel like an old hand at it, this might also be your first foray into the series. Either way, we’ve got some helpful tips and tricks to hopefully ensure that your success.
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.
Kingdom Rush: Origins is a prequel to the popular Kingdom Rush by Ironhide Game Studio. The game adds new towers, heroes, levels, and enemies to the world, as well as over 70 unique achievements and three difficulty modes.
