Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: NEAT CONCEPT
Fat Chicken offers a cool if gruesome idea for a reverse Tower Defense game, but it's actually quite formulaic.

Kingdom Rush Origins HD: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies For Being a Successful Leader

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 2nd, 2014

Calling All Kingdoms:
Want to know why we're calling it "one of the better tower defense games in recent times?" Check out our Kingdom Rush Origins review.

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.

Indie Tower Defense Game, Nitropia, will be Making its Way to the App Store Soon

Posted by Jessica Fisher on October 7th, 2014

Nitropia is an indie developed tower defense title, from Dawn Patrol Games and being published by Bulkypix, that will be coming to iOS soon. The game incorporates real-time strategy elements with a gradual progression of complexity as you play. Each level will add at least one new challenge to keep the game exciting.

You will be able to play both offense and defense, collect resources, and pit your 3 best characters against bosses in Survival Mode. For an interesting change of pace, you will also be able to destroy enemy bases in Base Battle Mode.

Nitropia will be a premium game, but the developers will be giving a bunch of levels away for free and letting users choose what level of content they would like to buy into - such as the full game or the full game + all the advanced towers. The price is set to begin at $1.99, which gives you the full game and 3 characters to play with. You will be able to use earned in-game currency to unlock bonus characters, upgrades and advanced attacks.

Nitropia has a tentative launch date October 30.
