Throbax TD is a Tower Defense game with a twist. You have to survive wave after wave of fiendish enemies in a struggle for nothing less than your whole planet.

About the game

The game was planned as an old-school tower defense game (like Blizzard's tower-defense map in Frozen Throne), but with a twist.

We wanted the game to have an immersive story and the first half of it to be a circle-tower-defense-game, meaning that the monsters will not vanish in a portal of some sort, but stay on the screen until you have destroyed them, or there are 100 of them on the screen (in which case you have lost).

But other than that, no bells and whistles, just basic action, but neatly balanced, good controls and not too easy.

The games controls are RTS-like (that means, that you control a hero, who will do most of the work in-game) and the second half of the levels will change the gameplay to a standard tower-defense game.


  • Battle your way through 50 levels, buy over 100 upgrades and get all of the 50+ achievements.
  • Online Coop-Multiplayer (if Indiegogo campaign is really successful)
  • Captivating story that takes place in a universe created for this game only (sequel pending)
  • English / German
  • English / German voiceover in all cut-scenes
  • Towers with individual effects
  • Spells
  • 25 level circle tower defense mode
  • 25 level standard tower defense mode
  • Over 100 upgrades for towers and your hero
  • Achievements

System Requirements

  • Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • Processor: Any processor with 2 Cores
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: ATI or Nvidia Videocard with at least 256MB, or Intel GMA 950 or newer
  • Hard Drive: 750 MB HD space


Currently we are running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. If you want to help us, please visit We can't thank you enough for supporting us.

This game, that started as an idea, pretty much got out of hands after a few months. The graphics would have to be nicer, the controls would have to be more intuitive, path-finding, HLSL effects, the works. Soon we found ourselves to be part of a full-grown development process of a pretty solid game. I think everyone who has ever programmed understands what we mean.

With your help we can fulfill those quality claims without making any compromises.
I want to be able to program the multiplayer-mode so much!

All people involved in this project and their families have invested vast amounts of sweat, tears and time for it to see the light of day.

Your contribution can make the difference and maybe, just maybe, there is a way for us to making a living out of it after all, so that we can make more games in the future (we have some pretty solid ideas already).

Please help us!
