Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite games. That comes from a guy with about 200 sitting installed on his PC.
Kingdom Rush offers everything I expect from a tower defense game and more; it takes the genre from the base flash games we all played in the school media center as children (which it once was- thanks to the devs, and congratulations for making it this far! I've been a fan since Armor Games.) and improves upon it to truly make it a genre and a game worthy of Steam.
Kingdom rush gameplay is very entertaining, and the wide variety of towers and options made available to you in upgrades outside of levels provide for an individual experience- you decide what strategy is most important to you. Activated abilities can save your rear-end in a close call, or you can use them liberally and as a backbone of your strategy. Footmen can be deployed and placed at your command to stop incoming enemies and maximize the effectiveness of your towers. Towers all provide a wide variety of upgrade trees, allowing for many different playstyles; do you provide your footmen with stronger melee, or do you provide them with ranged abilities? Do you provide your towers that extra zap potential, or do you instead have them push enemies back down the road?
Though the tower defense is at first glance a seemingly simplistic genre, Kingdom Rush makes it something you can sink days into. I've played through the full flash title, and I bought this copy because I was so fond of it. This Steam copy also provides many more levels and intricacies, such as heroes you can command and chose to fit your playstyle.
Kingdom Rush also provides some astonishing art in my opinion. The game looks terrific, and has an individual indie look to it-and not the hipstery-indie kind, the genuine, we-made-this-for-fun-and-sunk-our-sweat-and-toil-into-this kind.
I can't reccommend this game enough. Kingdom Rush is one of my favorites, and I hope to see more astonishing work from the devs in the future.
