Kingdom Rush Is a Polished Multi-Stage Tower Defense Game [Gaming]

If you’re looking for a little levity to get you through the midweek slump, Kingdom Rush is a really polished Tower Defense-style Flash game with save points, multiple stages, and great interface.

Tower Defense games are a dime a dozen; it takes a lot to stand out from the pack. Kingdom Rush has polished graphics, a great sound track, an RPG theme with multiple levels, local and online save points, multiple units/enemies/special powers, and a great built in tutorial and tips system to get you moving along quickly. It’s a good enough incarnation of the Tower Defense genre that we’d happily buy it to play on our iPad if it was available as an iOS game.

    i love how it has very few towers to start with but they can be upgraded to many different types

    You might also like Gemcraft. In fact, it was while playing gemcraft, then going to the home page of, that I discovered Kingdom Rush. It was the most popular game for the past few weeks so I tried it myself.

    @greendiamond: I liked the upgrade feature on the game too. In most games you get the ability to upgrade but in this game you have to use the stars you gain from doing well on prior levels to upgrade your “tech tree”. Most flash games aren’t sophisticated enough to have a tech tree and that kind of planning.
