If you think back to when you played one of the many Bloons Tower Defense flash games on your computer, you will probably fall head over heels Kingdom rush franchise.
The game I’ve been playing lately is Kingdom Rush origins now that it’s part of the Google Play Pass. This means that you can play it for free if you take advantage of Google’s new app subscription service.
Kingdom Rush origins has a simple premise. Players can set up a few rows of defenses as larger and larger waves of enemies attempt to sweep across the map. Each level requires players to fight harder and harder enemies each time.
For example, during opening levels, players mainly have to fight against slow enemies that don’t have a lot of health. However, as the game progresses, the base enemy unit changes from slow to much faster. On top of that, every few levels the developer uses new enemies that add new twists such as magic resistance or teleportation abilities.
To help combat the range of enemies, there are four basic units: Archers, Mages, Druids, and Soldiers.
Each unit’s tower can be upgraded multiple times to add more effects to the units. For example, you can upgrade the Archers Tower so that the units within it can deal physical and magical damage.
The other wrinkles of the gameplay come from a single controllable hero and his abilities. Each hero can be upgraded over time, so even if you unlock one sooner, you can continue to upgrade to improve it over time. You can buy new upgrades with stars that you accumulate over time.
Some of the hero’s abilities can be triggered by the player and be targeted anywhere on the map. For example, the hero I use can summon a Toronado anywhere.
Overall, I don’t think there are better tower defense games on mobile anywhere, and the fact that so many games in the series are available for free with Play Pass makes them easily interesting for everyone. .
You can download the game on Android for $ 4.09 CAD. On iOS, it costs $ 2.99, and if you want to play it on PC, you can get it on Steam for $ 17.49.
