Play OverviewPlay Overview

Kingdom Rush (2014) is a strategy tower defence game where you defend your kingdom against waves of orcs, trolls and evil wizards. You do this by placing (and developing) your arsenal of towers and spells to kill them before they reach you.

It's a simple premise that works because it's approachable and really well-balanced. You work through the different regions from forests to mountains and wastelands, customizing your defensive strategy with different tower upgrades as you go. Rain fire upon your enemies, summon reinforcements, command your troops, recruit elven warriors and face legendary monsters on a quest to save the Kingdom from the forces of darkness.
