By Akemi Iwaya on January 6th, 2012


In this week’s game you engage in an exciting campaign to defend the kingdom against brigands, goblins, orcs, and more in battle. Can you lead your troops to victory or will you fall before the oncoming hordes?

Kingdom Rush


You have three game slots available to use as needed or desired while playing the game.


Here is the campaign map for the kingdom…you and your men will have a lot of territory to defend.


Your first battle will be at Southport… What evil awaits you there?

Note: You can choose the difficulty level you desire using the drop-down menu.


We have included all three screens of instructions on how to play here.




Get ready for the upcoming battle by selecting defense locations you would like to set up. You can monitor your remaining lives, current monetary funds, and attack wave number in the upper left corner.


Clicking on a defense location will show you the tower options you have available for that particular location (depending on your current funds). Click on the one you want to build and watch as it is constructed in moments.


Prepared and ready for battle! Click on the Skull Button in the lower right corner of the game window to start the battle.

Note: The Skull Button at the top of the game window serves as a timer for the next wave of attacks as well as a way to speed things up if desired.


When a new enemy type appears you will see a brief description about it.


You will also receive new special powers during game play. The reinforcements one is an especially nice one to have as later attack waves appear.


To use the Reinforcements Power click on it and then click on the location where you want them to appear.


Another new enemy and definitely tougher than Goblins!


Hints about the best ways to combat enemies will also appear from time to time to help you with your defense strategy.


Helpful information for positioning your troops…


The Rain of Fire is the other special power that will become available during the battle at Southport. Your enemies will not stand a chance against this one!


The Rain of Fire special power in action…


Victory in Southport!


Onward to defend the Farmlands! Good luck and have fun defending the kingdom!
