The One

This is the TD game we want and don’t deserve. No annoying ads, micro transactions are reasonable and the overall game play is addictive. 10/10
The best in class
by Memo430 on 2019/12/08 06:45
I enjoy it.
THE BEST GAME EVER!
by gabriel98265 on 2019/12/08 00:49

Great game!

Fun game you can grind and not pay to play
Not playable without constant spending.
by sierra shadow on 2019/12/05 16:13
Eventually you get to where you can’t do anything without spending huge money. I don’t mind paying for a good game but to simply keep the game going you need to spend at least $20 a month. Not worth it.
Good game
by Jhshahajsndnsoems on 2019/12/04 16:33
Pretty fun
Play this game
by dollap o daisy on 2019/12/04 14:52
I would say that you have to pass a few levels before you can get to the actual gameplay yet it still manages to make the totoreal or however you spell that fun because you still play but it teaches you things aka game mechanics so I give this a five star rating PS I haven’t seen any bugs
Entertaining
by M2short on 2019/12/04 05:37
It starts slow but as you expect it gets better the more you play it I do recommend this game
Awayyyyy
by HighEloGamer on 2019/12/03 22:01
Absolutely awful!! Plz Stay away from this worthless and degenerate game. The paste to make progress in this game is to literally remove your brain from your skull so you won’t mind waiting for ages , or shake your wallet into garbage products. The rate they offer you to buy stuff is beyond any logical or mathematical sense. Thanks good after a day of trying I was able to understand everything about this game and what a pice of garbage this experience was.
Easy to play, fun to plan

Fun game, annoying pay to play mechanics
by sdkip on 2019/12/02 00:27
Currently it’s forcing me to write this, else can’t get through message screen. Overall fun, definitely balanced in a way to try and get you to pay for items/worlds/upgrades.
Great fun
by ShyFysh82 on 2019/12/01 21:04
Love tower defense games and this one is great.
Been looking for a simple strategy game
by Lnt5786 on 2019/11/30 21:53
Love it. Simple yet entertaining. Some of these recent added games in the apps store are so bogus, with fake bots and just lame gameplay. With crummy graphics. This game shows great details down to the Hero’s story. I find it very exhilarating
Best fighting game
by LoveYourGameGian on 2019/11/30 21:46
I really like this game it’s really fun unlocking hero’s and fighting new mobs every time I also like unlocking skills for my hero’s
My Recommendation
by Snowjob69 on 2019/11/30 17:59
Having payed this game until level 6, I can tell you so far it’s been very enjoyable and fun. Highly recommend it.
Wonderful

Really do love the game, but lacking long term playability.
by James6449 on 2019/11/27 15:54
I really like this game and log in a couple of times a day. The only thing is that there have been days in a row where I couldn’t do anything without paying actual money. I don’t mind paying upfront for a game but dislike the whole concept where the more money you spend the further you can go. Hopefully there can be an update soon where the newest worlds aren’t so difficult to get into. I have been stuck getting into world 4 for about a month or so. I’ve gotten two stars on the last level of world 3 and can’t get the full three stars. So now the game is stangnant for me and going to get deleted. I’ve already done all of the daily challenges, it’s just disappointing to now have nothing left to do because of one simple star.
Lots of fun
by Wrathbone7 on 2019/11/27 12:13
You can keep playing without being forced to pay-to-play...I respect that
A great and fun strategy game
by Zender the best critic on 2019/11/27 09:51
You can have fun and not have to pay. The game is different and with each world changes the powers, And moves of your caricatures.
Great game but a little to pushy with pay to play
by GJT grand prix on 2019/11/25 04:59
Overall the game is great, one of the best Tower defense I’ve played on mobile. Only problem I have is the pay to play. It’s pushed a little too much. I can’t go to the next area unless I meet annoying requirements or pay money. For example I have to compete against other players in a tournament for best time defending and win medals, of which I need to spend a certain amount of those medals as one of the requirements to unlock the next area. Which can only be used on buying skins at the moment, which is pointless towards actual gameplay. Or pay 4 bucks to unlock the next area. It also increases the requirements amount or value with each area.
Great game

Awesome TD, Only couple issues
by DrQuinn503 on 2019/11/21 18:54
Great TD, only thing I did not like a was that at some point it became ptp for me to get past a certain level with boss, even after countless hours and resource gathering, it required me to purchase some 10 dollar pack. I didn’t and ended up moving on. Then come and give it a second chance on iOS, and can’t restore data because it attaches to Google Games app, rather than FB. Game play is amazing and captivating though and nothing of those problems is the Devs fault directly. Would be cool if I could get compensated in game somehow though lol.

by Bludra9onfly on 2019/11/17 22:35
Very fun but takes some time to level up to open new levels u less you want to pay for them to be unlocked early. There are some bugs with the ads that allow for extra special items but overall this is a very fun and challenging game
Better than I expected
by evan.eberspacher on 2019/11/17 20:44
I’ve been around the block on tower defense games. I’m usually disappointed. This one makes you work but isn’t completely impossible. I found it fun and entertaining and am looking forward to more. Please expand soon. I’m hoping for another endless mode and more side missions for the last few worlds.
Great game!
by Doodlesend on 2019/11/17 08:17
Great game. I had a very good time playing it.
Great game with no pay wall
by Colo610 on 2019/11/16 23:03
A great game that combines idle with action!
Very entertaining
by Cee--Jay on 2019/11/16 22:43
Lots of fun, you can play pretty much as long as you want without ever having to wait for energy to recharge or anything and you can find ways to make things easier or harder depending on how much of a challenge you want. Could be a casual game for fun every now and then or a competitive one without having to spend any money. Very good game.
Average Game
by dadoggies on 2019/11/16 06:06
2.5/5 stars game. The gameplay UI is subpar compared with KR. KR shows you the range of your towers before you placed them. But this game places towers upon first touch, without giving you a chance to plan your tower placements based on range coverage. KR just feels way more polished; this game feels like a rough gem.
Fun Game

Fun game...Terrible support team
by Mateo0831 on 2019/11/09 03:17
I enjoy the game a lot. But u bought a barrel of gems and the transaction froze the game. Now every time I get into the game it tells me I have a purchase I need to restore and when I click restore it fails. Every time. I’ve contacted support and after a quick back a forth about my situation they wanted. A picture of receipt of purchase. I sent picture of proof of purchase and haven’t heard back since. It has been nearly two weeks... every day it feels more and more like they just stole money from me.
Fun
by ifoqovr on 2019/11/08 15:23
Pretty fun. No pressure to make purchases. Can usually get items by watching a video. Pretty good tower defense game.
Fun until World 3 then it takes real money
by TheLoneDrake on 2019/11/07 13:00
Enjoyed the game since I first downloaded it. Love the heroes and the different ways you can improve them. HOWEVER, without spending real money on this “free-to-play” game, you will dead-end at World 3. I am at level 78 with 2 of my heroes awakened to gold tier and by wave 2 it’s game over. There’s no way to strategize through the stage or win with skill, it becomes pay to win, the worst kind of game. That or grind away for months before you can make any real progress again. I will gladly watch ads for more gems, but that isn’t even an option either. Once you exhaust all means to reliably earn gems, you are done.
plain fun

Developers have contrived roadblocks that seek to make you buy items. Fun game if you take away the bottlenecks.

No way out of tutorial
by FearOfFae on 2019/11/05 15:40
I “finished” the lessons. Went back to replay a level for better stars. The annoying useless dude popped back up to tell me to use explosive barrels. Because I had already played that part, he didn’t give me any. So the message wouldn’t go away. It would also be nice if I could see how many stars I have already earned.
Fun game, terrible support
by Cloudoreo on 2019/11/04 23:24

Game froze and lost all of my power ups in the middle of a boss match
by Cameron Hightower on 2019/11/04 19:51
It took me four days to get all my power up items so I could beat the world 5 final boss so I could get three stars. And it froze, kicked me out of the game on the final wave! I’d appreciate if I was given those power up items back so I can take another crack at it. Otherwise I’m just going to stop playing this game because I’m not going to keep grinding for these items if I’m just going to lose them again if it freezes up. Thanks!
Fun and entertaining!
by PabsVega on 2019/11/04 13:36
Good game overall. Plenty to do to keep you entertained for free for weeks
Would like to see stat numbers
by Mathius.83 on 2019/11/04 13:24
The only thing keeping me from giving this a 5 star rating; Show stat numbers. -Tower attack damage, attack speed... -Hero stats: hp, attack, defense, etc.

by Danny t09 on 2019/10/26 18:34
Game makes you buy gems to advance to the 3rd map. So you’ll play for a week before it pretty much makes you pay to buy a map. So long story short you have two free maps that you can get to with 1-3days worth.
Realm Defense
by Lord Brandon (house of Povey) on 2019/10/16 21:17
Hello everyone, I’m just gonna write a few reason I think Realm Defense is the best tower defense game out there. Your standard tower defense games are just the same thing over and over. In Realm Defense you Gabe hero’s you can unlock and buy and level them up to Increase there stats and special attacks. There a multitude of mini games to be played as well, which allows us users to earn power items or ether or unlock stronger hero’s. You have arcade mode and endless mode which is a good way to earn free power ups by using your raid cards you automatically get the highest level for the world that you’ve completed. The developers are very friendly and very fast on response time when I contact them. I’ve always won free gems a few times by just share Realm Defense Facebook post. Just share there post and keep a look out for other free give aways. And it only cost you one share of Realm Defense Facebook post, so you can’t beat that, easy free money boys. An to the developer’s who have worked countless days an night to make this game the best it can an I thank you all, Everyone who had anything to do with this game should be very proud of themselves. An I would just like to say thank to your whole team from developers to graphic design team to the coders, Artists/Visual’s, an the customer support team you all were a huge help in getting me my gems I win. Keep up the great work and remember stay a team an this game will take your company to the next level.
Very fun buuuuut...(minor rant)
by god him selffff on 2019/10/24 08:16
I rated this 5 stars because I enjoy playing this game very much and I see no huge flaws yet. The only thing that I think needs buffing is the elixir mine(s). I think that it should generate way quicker. It would be helpful if it generated quicker so I could level up my hero’s faster. Whilst on the topic of hero’s, I need to complain a little about the rate you gain cards for your hero’s to level up(the non elixir route aka the grind route). I’m only just starting out so I don’t know if this changes later in the game but, you gain like 1-15 cards for year hero’s to level per 3 star win. It sounds like a lot at first but when you need thousands it’s nothing. I think they should buff this rate too. Not too much but maybe like 30-45 cards for hero’s per 3 star win. Once again, I don’t know for sure if this changes post-game. Other than those minor things this game is very fun and addictive. Personally I really like how the more stars you get the more you can upgrade your towers. Anyways, this game is very unique, fun, and all around enjoyable to play. I recommend this game 10/10!!!
Months of EPIC gameplay until world 3!
by jetthepuet on 2019/07/12 14:48
This is one of the best free tower games! However, everything stops once you reach the end of world 3...this is where I feel the game falls short and becomes a cash cow. 1) it takes forever to earn free gems (30 daily login non stop + extras will earn you 2000+ gems a month with each decent heroes costing 6000+. It will take 3-4months of daily play to buy a medium rank hero). 2) forced to micromanage EVERYTHING what you buy/use early on 3) tournaments are pointless once you reach gold rank since you will be under leveled. You stay idle until you spend gems to upgrade heroes so you can compete with other players who have max heroes. There should be an up/down league ranking system to earn more gems so we can qualify to earn more free gems 4) since you’re underleveled and and can’t finish harder overpowering levels the game will crash consistently. There is ZERO recovery. If you wasted items on a level and game crashes then all items used are lost leaving you in the negative and starting over from beginning 5) The only remedy to all these problems is to buy gems. As a freebie player you’ll need lots of patience, time and Gems so you can level up, unlock or buy better expensive heroes. This is really a great game with lots of potential but once you reach midway you’re stuck and everything becomes a repetitive grind for free gems.
Very fun game that’s free if you want it to be
by deadmans2 on 2018/09/30 17:53
Overall as far as good tower defense games go I really enjoy playing this! Although it’s not my favorite type of TD (i prefer ones you build mazes with your towers) Got it when it only had one world and have been playing every now and again since! Never needed to spend any money on it and have all but one hero that was just released and this is a really good game with constant updates and support. The team working on this game has been fantastic and constantly delivered! Only thing I have a complaint about is the balancing of hero’s. There’s really no point to using more than half of the hero’s because the balancing is just really bad (although they are the cheap ones) the new hero’s typically are always better than any old ones even though the abilities are vastly different. They Need to work on how to balance some things so that certain hero’s actually give you a strategy. Why waste time on the awaking tokens for older hero’s? When the new hero’s cost the same amount of gems basically and automatically are better. This is apparent in the tournament mode where you can see everyone in the top 10 uses the same hero set.
Best app game I’ve had
by dragondawg on 2018/03/20 03:02
This is by far one of my favorite games. I used to be so bored in study hall because eventually the no-internet app games get old. When I started playing this I was surprised by how fast time went by. I play it in my free time too now and love it especially because of the heroes you can get that really add to the tower defense basis. I don’t spend any real money on items or heroes and find that it is still just as fun. If you take the time to work at the levels and level up your heroes, try new strategies, and check the box for what other people suggested then it’s no problem. No money needed. I am a bit over halfway through world 2 so maybe I might change my view on not spending money later on when it gets harder or I have to unlock other worlds but for now I love this game a lot and I still will even if I need to spend some money eventually. You can always get heroes for gems and right now I don’t see them cornering me into buying something with real money which is great. Also it doesn’t inundate me with ads which is another plus. Five stars, no doubt.
For a free game...it’s the best TD game I’ve ever played.
by Mallikess on 2018/02/03 21:04
Pretty “schwifty” game, I must say. I’ve played a plethora of Tower Defense games over the years (love the idea), and by far — best one out there! There are so many extra variables (other than the main quests) that really raise the bar to a level passed all other TD games I’ve played. Insee a lot of people complaining about the game becoming very difficult if you don’t pay-to-play...well, if that’s what you want, then just don’t play any games that SHOW that in game purchases are a thing. I’m sure there are a good number of ppl who’ve made this game possible, and they’ve spent a lot of time, effort, energy & $ of their own to bring this to you. I say stop feeling entitled to getting everything for free & enjoy what you’re given. You don’t HAVE to spend $ in this game to make it all the way thru (I’m not thru yet, but close) and in retrospect, the few $ that I did spend wasn’t 100% necessary. Thx for the great game devs!!!
World 3 money grab
by Roxas4522 on 2019/05/13 21:28
Enjoy the game up til world 3. After that the enemies are so overpowered if you haven’t spent hundreds of dollars of real money the game says **** you and won’t let you pass until you grind for months to get enough gems for the most obvious money grab heroes that are literally 100% the only way to pass halfway through world three. There’s a way to comment on how to beat a stage and literally every comment says how stupid hard the levels are, buy the expensive heroes to beat, or random crap that doesn’t help at all but has hundreds of thumbs up on. Why make the game free if you want money? Just make the game cost 5 bucks to download and you have money lazy devs. No seriously go play through the first 2 world where you can almost place 0 towers and beat and then go play world 3 and have FULLY UGRADED TOWERS and lose because the game is based on low percentage luck if you don’t have the fifty dollar real money heroes. Oh and that’s 50 real dollars for each single hero and then you have to grind and pay in order to make it actually good. They come so low leveled and it takes so much experience to level up by the time you can legitimately get them your only way to level them up is with elixir which generates so slow unless you pump money into it you might as well go Kill yourself instead.
Be prepared to spend a lot of money if you want to progress.
by award93 on 2019/05/11 20:30
Overall fun game with lots of strategy involved. Like most games with micro transactions, your progression will shortly be halted due to running out of gems and resources. These of course can be obtained in small amounts with time gates or can be purchased. There are certain levels that can be near impossible to beat without specific high level hero’s which can be bought with money or with gems that would take weeks or months of grinding to get. I myself have spent around $20 on this game and won’t be spending anymore seeing how fast your progress is halted due to running out resources. Fun game but would not recommend investing any money into it. You will find yourself spending FAR more then what this game is worth. The $20 I have spent on the game really wasn’t worth it in terms of what I got from it. Fun game to play every once and a while but I highly recommend NOT spending any money unless you really want to dedicate yourself to this game and plan on playing for a long time. I wish this game charged a one time fee and unlocked much more. It’s far too expensive otherwise.
Fun, but barely any end game content
by TVett on 2019/07/09 02:51
The game is fun, the character grind is ok (annoying but it controls progress), my real gripe comes from the fact that I’ve been playing for a few months (3) and there is only one more map to unlock. I haven’t spent any real money on the game, so I’d imagine if you paid for characters then it would be even quicker. The main problem comes from the fact that you can’t gain character lvls unless you use them on missions you have never completed before. If you replay the same lvl, the characters get 0 exp. this makes upgrading characters impossible unless it’s through the elixir mine (another feature that you MUST spend gems on to upgrade). This is just lazy development, they only want your money and they don’t update the game fast enough. I’d imagine the developers are few and they just sit on their hands collecting money. Lazy developers will get none of my hard earned money. Anyone spending money on this game is a fool. Just look at the critical reviews and the replies from their dev team. They are all snarky remarks defending their design and logic around paying lots of money. The majority of 4-5 stars are paid reviews, you can look up their account names on the fake game review org site.
Okay for a day
by jjj135689 on 2018/10/07 11:10
Was a fun game for a day or two. Pretty disappointed how many hoops you have to jump through to just progress to world 3. Most games you finish a level and move on to the next...not this one. I guess you have spend some money and hope it’s worth it. It’s still unclear what exactly I need to move on. I need to clear S9 to upgrade the first skill of my hero and have to wait 24 hours after beating one stage until the next is available. So 8 days total it will take me to upgrade one ability. You can’t even rush the process with gems. Why the F would anyone spend money on this game?? I cleared everything on world 1 and 2 legendary mode in like 2 days with the two 1500 gem heroes so what incentive do I have spend 3k each on two more? I get to move to the next level, and have another 2 days worth of content. I downloaded this game like a week or week and a half ago. I log in once or twice a day to collect my elixir and do shattered realms and the daily etc. like 10 minutes of content a day. And when I do, I have the option to skip battle with an ad. That’s annoying.
Entertaining, but you have to pay to keep playing
by NagromSC on 2018/09/06 20:53
This game is very similar to the Kingdom Rush games. I enjoyed it, but beyond a certain point you have to unlock two certain characters to play more levels. The only way to get both characters in anything approaching a reasonable timeframe is, as you may have guessed, to buy them. I might have been willing to if they were a dollar or two, but at over $10 it’s not worth the money and without being able to play the additional levels the game quickly becomes boring and tedious. My advice - get the game for free, play the levels you can without spending any money, then move on to another game. Is a game where you basically *have* to spend money to proceed one you really want to play? Update: After finally playing long enough to get the two heroes required to unlock the next world, I see that the same is true for the next following world. To make it worse, the required heroes are even *more* expensive, both to “earn” in game (which takes forevvvvvvvver) and “real world” money if you choose to purchase them.
Excellent gameplay, although progress is a grind
by dlkjhg on 2019/09/03 06:13
The game itself is superb. The levels are (usually) balances, thoughtfully crafted, and beautiful; the heroes are diverse and interesting; the world-based towers offer great variety; and the enemies are a blast to take down. The game does an excellent job of making you feel like a genius when you’ve discovered a winning strategy. The only negatives are the scarce consumables and looooong stalls in progress while grinding (sometimes for weeks) to acquire the gems necessary to rank-up and beat a tough level. This can make the game terribly boring at times, for long stretches of time. The devs could address this a number of ways; for instance, by offering unlimited endless-level keys in realms the player has mastered, or even by something as simple as shortening the cool down for realm siege (currently set at a grueling 24 hours per 2 free plays... yikes). But on the whole, the game is among the best of its kind. I rated it 4 stars out of 5 because its problems, while eminently fixable, really do impinge my enjoyment.
A True Rival for Kingdom Rush
by Somanas on 2018/07/15 20:35
Like the tower defense genre? Like Kingdom Rush? Like not being bored? Then you’re probably gonna love this game! I’ve been a longtime fan of the aforementioned game, so much so that I condsidered the series to be in a league of its own. After playing through the first two worlds of this game though...I’m gonna have to clear some new space off of that pedestal. While paying homage to so many of the aspects key to Kingdom Rush’s fun and replayability, it adds its own features in that seem so natural among the tried and true formula. Adding extra levels and conversation bits with your heroes as you level them up feels so right and the Arcade feature that asks you to only use items to win brings the spotlight to a sometimes under appreciated side of these games. I’m nowhere near the end of the main part of Realm Defense, but that just makes me all the more excited for what’s to come!
Welp. (Game progress erased)
by Chodeee on 2019/04/01 14:38
Was having a lot of fun with this game and had finally unlocked world 5 after grinding for nearly 3 months, (though I did also spend $7 on the Raida event when I started to get a good hero and speed up the process) only to have all of my progress completely wiped by a glitch on one of the early World 5 levels. The app relies on Game Center for you to backup your progress, but seeing as the app was removed from iPhones at IOS10 it is considerably less reliable and hardly functions how it used to. I was hardly surprised when I attempted to restore my backup (which was probably in the middle of world 4) for nothing to happen at all. Most other games I’ve played have their own account cloud service should issues like this arise (e.g. Hive), but after emailing support I was told the ONLY way to retrieve lost progress is through Game Center or Google Play. Needless to say, I’m not pouring all that time/more money back into this game despite the fact that it was becoming a daily play. The game itself is very fun, but not worth it if your progress isn’t truly secure.
Money grab, P2W
by Rfgigvdsy on 2018/03/30 17:33
Great game until the only way to move on is to pay after about 2 days of playing. Only way to move on is to have a certain amount of hero’s and those cost gems, 3000 gems. Once you beat all the levels and complete several quest objectives you can obtain 4 maybe 5 hero’s. To move on you need 6 hero’s. You either need to wait several several months get enough gems to buy a 6th hero or pay for the gems to move on. If you do pay, this process only repeats its self as you go from world to world. So not only would you pay once, you would need to pay several times to keep moving on. They also nerfed the levels that award gems so is impossible to any significant gems from them. Don’t download if you are not prepared to pay, you will only be frustrated after a few days of play.
Good game / Horrible Support / Don’t spend money
by pmat7 on 2018/10/06 19:23
This game is a good game play wise. However you are consistently being push to pay to win. Also pushed to watch ads if you want items. Or play for 15 mins to get them. I don’t have a problem with that. I have two major issues. One there is no support. Not via the contact us or via Facebook. No one will respond. So if you do spend money you do that at your own risk. Personally If I could do it again I would play but not buy anything. And when it gets old move on. Without support and if something happens, your screwed if you had paid. Second, there was a event recently hero event that was exploited by tons of users that gave them lots of awakening tokens and the new hero fully awakened. It’s really change the landscape of the game. They didn’t handle it right and you can see the complaints on reddit. The support is the biggest issue. If you don’t respond to support request then you really don’t let people feel like you care. It’s just a money grab at the end of the day.
Amazing game with a few mishaps.
by Tito1189 on 2018/07/17 18:19
So I’ve had this game for a little under a year now. And it’s honestly one of my favorite games it’s so much fun to play. I’ve even went out and made a few micro transactions because I wanted to support this game. But recently I have been having issues with the tournaments in the game. No matter what score I get I can never get into the top 3 there have been multiple instances of where I have gotten a higher score than the person in 3rd place but the game always places me 4th? I have sent 2 emails already with screenshots showing exactly the issue I am having. The first one I was told it was going to be fixed. But it wasn’t fixed but it wasn’t that big of a deal so I didn’t care. Then it happened again a couple of days ago. So I resent a second email to them again with pictures but no reply yet. And now a new tournament started and I’m still having the same issue. If at all possible please fix this as soon as possible.
Very enjoyable
by M. Ryan on 2019/02/13 12:51
I can’t lie, I really enjoy this game. I feel like it’s one of, if not the best type of its genre with great graphics, unique heroes to choose from with fun, small interactive scenes with the heroes and challenging levels throughout the worlds. That said, I do have a couple issues with how difficult it is to level up heroes and the rate at which it takes. You get such a minimal amount of eco after finishing a level and once it’s finished at 3 stars, you don’t ever receive anymore EXP. You get a daily amount of elixir which can be used to level up heroes, but it’s such a small amount, capping at not even 1,700 units/8hrs and, at level 26, a hero will need almost 13,000 EXP to level up. Moreover, getting a new hero is basically impossible to level up. A higher cap on realm siege would be nice as well 😁 At the end of the day, though, I’ll continue playing the game because it is so much fun to me
Great game, great devs!
by Jacobshade on 2019/05/14 11:02
I’ve been playing this game for about a year and a half now, and I’m constantly impressed with the hard work the devs put in to keep the game fresh and fun. It really feels like they listen to what their player-base wants in the game, and makes changes accordingly. One thing I love about this game is that it isn’t pay-to-win like many free games in the App Store. It’s a good balance of giving you the option to advance faster through paying, but is by no means a necessity. Ironically, this has been more encouraging to me to spend some money on the game here and there, as I wish to keep supporting the devs. As for gameplay, the hero system makes it unique from other tower defense games, and keeps the game consistently entertaining as you work to buy new hero’s with new powers and strategies.
Too easy
by Clashofclanguy on 2019/01/31 15:53
I’ve beaten 3 of the full maps already and I haven’t lost a single heart. This game would be a lot more fun if it let you switch to insanely hard mode or something where they attacked with 10 times as many guys. I literally don’t even build anything half the time my hero’s just kill all the guys. I’d say the game difficulty level is set for like someone and preschool or something. It’s really disappointing because the game mechanics are all there and you could tell it would be a fun game if there was a challenge. What makes it even worse is by the time you get to the end of a map there is the smallest amount of challenge then it goes to a new map that starts at ultra easy. It makes no sense to start back at easy because your hero’s are all leveled up now... the next map should be 3 to 4 times as hard. Legendary mode is a joke I can’t even tell the difference between legendary and standard mode.
FIXED: Latest update buggy
by poly_sci on 2018/12/13 15:26
Update: The developers are a class act. They sent all players a message apologizing for the no-text visible bug saying to reinstall. That fixed it for me and I didn’t lose anything. Plus they have out some bonus items in the game for the trouble. Thank you, devs! The latest update (today is Dec. 12, 2018) removed the labels on the bottom of the screen such as “Tournament” “World Map”, etc. and the “Sale” category only has one entry. Also on the World Map, the world names are now just “nil 1”, “nil 2”, etc. instead of “World 1”, “World 2”, etc. I can still play the game but some things are missing. I am confident the developers will fix it soon because they seem pretty dedicated. It’s a great tower defense game otherwise.
Super fun, but there are some glitches
by M-Hulk on 2018/12/14 15:32
First of all, I love the game. This is the way free to play games should be designed. Yes, there is a way to purchase your way to victory, but it’s not required at all. I think the prices for gems. Heroes, etc. are very fair. The game is super fun and it keeps me wanting to play more and more! That being said, the game does not sync well between my iPhone and iPad. Every time I switch to a different device, I have to play 1 or 2 levels again to get back to my previous spot. It is ok for now, because the game is fun and I don’t mind playing levels over again, but it could also become very annoying if I ever had difficulty beating a level and need to play it again. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon!! Great game, will get 5 stars from me as soon as those sync errors are fixed.
Buggy knockoff of kingdom rush
by Mauigator on 2018/03/27 20:21
I’ll keep it simple and do my pro’s and con’s: Pro’s -solid TD game. If you like TD you will get some entertainment out of this game. -plenty of game modes/challenges to keep it interesting -best feature is the tournament. It’s fun to try to improve your times in the endless modes for the tournament each week and move up the charts. Con’s -game freezes often on me and doesn’t register touches on the screen at times which is frustrating while playing. -the watch video option to get another tourney entry rarely works. Game freezes at the video loading screen. Could be intentional to frustrate you into spending gems on additional entries. -spent $5.99 on a starter promotion. Had account linked to facebook, when I deleted and reloaded the game to try to fix screen freeze issue, I lost all progress, heroes and gems and had to start from scratch. Zero help from apple or devs. -ultimately your progress in the game is tied directly to the strength of your heroes. You need the latest (most expensive) heroes to compete. -basically it comes down to how you feel about games that are designed to cash in on your impatience/frustration. There is so much time gating in this game along with the hero strength issue, if you are extremely patient you can enjoy this game for free. If not, this game can get extremely expensive very quickly.
It gets way too hard by the 4th world
by AstralSerpent on 2019/02/12 18:42
I really loved this game up until the 4th world. It’s one of the best tower defense games out there for a good portion of the game but it gets so hard it’s almost unplayable. Not to mention that the good characters are so expensive that it takes months of grinding or paying upwards of 20+ bucks just to get 1 of the characters needed to complete higher levels because the others are less than adequate. That’s not even counting the experience potions to level these ridiculously expensive characters to make them worth anything. Pay to win rears it’s ugly head here. I love the game and really wanna play it but I can’t because of the difficulty in the higher levels. The higher levels need nerfed and the good characters need to be cheaper. Otherwise I’m stuck, can no longer play and need another tower defense game.
Realm Defense Rocks!
by Zaefodbeeblebrox on 2018/01/13 15:02
Ever since Kingdom Rush stopped making TD styled games, there was a vacuum that Realm Defense filled. The maps are challenging and worlds ever expanding. The artwork is exceptional and creative. Realm Defense is a game I look forward to playing every day to earn a few gems and test my skills. I like saving over time to earn a new hero. The leveling is well planned and incremental to skill level. Animations are very impressive, though it would be nice to have more interactive background features like in KR, like little games, or characters that help during game play. An example would be KR Origins where there is a gnome you click on to play a “Simon-like” mushroom game to earn coins. But overall Realm Defense is my favorite TD app.
Great Game Devs!
by Wigwump on 2018/07/16 07:53
Realm defense is a fun, easy to pickup, but tediously strategic tower defense game. It’s great to play and I love that it can still be played offline (with limited functions). As the game progresses you get more and enthralled in each level; every time you unlocked the next level your strategy must change as well. The art style is pleasant and the world are very challenging. However, after reaching world 3 and onward, you may find yourself very stuck without paying for some pricey in-app-purchases for better heroes. There needs to be a better way to afford the high level heroes and acquire more gems than the game currently offers. Certain levels seem to demand the top $ heroes. I appreciate that the game isn’t completely pay to play.... But it does feel that way later on into the game.
Developers and quality control allowed cheaters to ruin this competitive game
by fliodolo on 2018/08/12 02:33
I’ve played this game daily over the past year. It was a great game. Got to legendary many times, have all the heroes, did the daily small grind that allowed me the rewards of playing what was an exceptionally good tower defense game. Your strongest hitters are your heroes, that you level and grow through significant investments in time and effort. The end game is the weekly tournaments in which you try to score the highest in your league, allowing you to advance and unlock more gems. In the past week, the developers created an event that unlocked a new hero. A game-destroying bug, unfortunately, allowed many users to exploit, allowing them to create impossibly strong heroes. Now it wouldn’t matter if you played this game in isolation. Unfortunately you don’t. You are ranked in time and kills versus the next player, hundreds of now whom have impossible-to-farm-strength heroes due to the exploit. The developers did nothing to punish the bug exploiters and now you are competing against these cheaters. It will be impossible to beat them from here on. I don’t see how I can enjoy playing this game especially if the developers allow cheating to run rampant. My last year in time has been wasted because the developers could not even the playing field against exploitation. I am uninstalling this game.
Love the game but I’m a little Frustrated
by Balocka P on 2019/01/31 03:12
I love the game but it won’t let me back the game up and the game glitched and wouldn’t let me do anything. It kept saying I needed to be online to play or unlock things so I waited like 2 days so I deleted the game and well... it worked buuuuuut... I lost everything. I don’t mind restarting because it was my dumb fault for it happening but I wish there was a way I could back it up because I would try to every now and then but it would just load and not stop loading. I’m gonna give this game a 5 star just because I love the game but just for anyone that has this problem now you know.
Extreme greed from developers
by Ryan kiley on 2019/09/29 16:24
When you first get the game it is really fun since it gives you a lot of monetized game currency to buy cheap hero’s with, but as you play the game for longer (I have had it for almost a year) you find yourself unable to complete the levels without buying better hero’s to play with. Also as you play for longer there are less ways to earn monetized game currency without grinding the game for months... people have done the math and it would take almost 2 years to get everything in the game without paying... and that’s if you played the timing system so there was absolutely no time wasted. Even if you buy the most expensive pack of monetized game currency, you are still unable to buy all the hero’s because they are overpriced, especially the late game ones. NOT A GOOD APP TO GET FOR THE LONG RUN, but it’s great if you just want to play it for a day or so.
Great TD game!
by Griffindor🐖 on 2019/05/25 04:38
This is a great example of how to make TD games better. Though I understand that on the whole TD games are pretty straight forward but I really enjoy how Realm Defense really pushes the limits as far as creating new challenges... the only criticism I have is how easy the first few worlds are (I have yet to finish world 3 and find the campaign a bit too easy but again, I am only a few worlds in so things may change) For example, “legendary mode” so far, is too easy to plow through... again it may still be early... on the other hand, endless mode and shattered realms seem to have adjustable difficulty which is good... all in all this is a great TD game with tons of extras! Thanks for all the awesome work on a great game!
Really do love the game, but lacking long term playability.
by James6449 on 2019/11/27 15:54
I really like this game and log in a couple of times a day. The only thing is that there have been days in a row where I couldn’t do anything without paying actual money. I don’t mind paying upfront for a game but dislike the whole concept where the more money you spend the further you can go. Hopefully there can be an update soon where the newest worlds aren’t so difficult to get into. I have been stuck getting into world 4 for about a month or so. I’ve gotten two stars on the last level of world 3 and can’t get the full three stars. So now the game is stangnant for me and going to get deleted. I’ve already done all of the daily challenges, it’s just disappointing to now have nothing left to do because of one simple star.
Needs improvement but it’s a great game
by Cawnlol on 2018/01/11 05:21
The game overall is great, but there are some parts of the game that need work, like the fact that some enemies are to strong or the towers are to weak. Also the fact that the hero’s are so expensive that you need to bye gems, which some people can’t afford and they end up getting stuck on a couple of levels and can’t continue also meaning that there hero’s can’t improve and the bonus upgrades are very difficult to earn when you get stuck. So rebalancing is highly recommended as well as lowering the price of the hero’s. Thanks for reading.
Pay to Play
by StephenReviewsApps on 2018/09/19 04:24
There’s about 2 days worth of free game play. Then everything is hidden behind pay walls. You can’t actually progress/play regularly without spending money. A greater frustration than that however is the “Goblin Gift” side game. You intentionally jacked the armor up on all the minions - by a lot. I’ve laid down every combination possible of towers and they still stroll right through. (I played through all of the first 2 maps with perfect scores & beat all legendary modes - so I know how much damage I should be doing) Then it cost gems to retry! But of course, when it cost gems (aka $$$) then it becomes unbeatable... Either it’s bugged or it’s a clever way to get money from people. But instead of my money, all you’re getting from me is a 1 star rating. Maybe rename “Arcade Mode” to “Carnival Mode” seeing how they’re unfair games designed to take peoples money.
A really strong tower defense game.
by DaltinoCox on 2019/05/25 15:14
I’ve played a number of TD games over the years, and this is one of my favorites. The mix of heroes, abilities, tower variation, and map layouts gives you a lot of freedom to try different things and play the game with your own strategy as opposed to needing to do one exact strategy for each level. I really enjoy the daily aspects they’ve added in with challenges and rewards. The only thing stopping me from making it 5 stars is that, now three worlds into the story, I’m managing to beat levels with all my lives and half of the necessary towers built. I’d like there to be a little bit more of a challenge in the main story once it gets going.
An actually great game!
by Mobile Gaming Fan on 2018/06/18 17:28
I don’t really make reviews but this game is so good I had to review it. I love playing tower defense games but this one is by far the best I’ve ever played. It is fun and relaxing, but challenging enough to be interesting. It has so many more levels and extra features than most TD games. But the best part is there isn’t really any adds unless you want to watch them for a free reward. And the game rewards you with plenty of gems for playing so you don’t have to spend money to make progress. I am really loving this game so far and I’ve played 60 levels so far. I highly recommend this game!
Great game but a little to pushy with pay to play
by GJT grand prix on 2019/11/25 04:59
Overall the game is great, one of the best Tower defense I’ve played on mobile. Only problem I have is the pay to play. It’s pushed a little too much. I can’t go to the next area unless I meet annoying requirements or pay money. For example I have to compete against other players in a tournament for best time defending and win medals, of which I need to spend a certain amount of those medals as one of the requirements to unlock the next area. Which can only be used on buying skins at the moment, which is pointless towards actual gameplay. Or pay 4 bucks to unlock the next area. It also increases the requirements amount or value with each area.
I was charged twice!
by Mz. Bryson on 2018/12/21 01:18
I recently bought the sale for $9.99 to get 3000 gems and it didn’t get go through the first time. I waited for about ten min to see if there was a delay and I still didn’t receive my gems. So I figured that the purchase/transaction didn’t go through, and so then I re-purchased the pack. I received the gems after trying the second time; however, after checking my bank, it showed that I was charged twice, while still only receiving one set of the 3,000 gems! I either need a refund or an extra 3000 gems! Seriously
Awesome TD, Only couple issues
by DrQuinn503 on 2019/11/21 18:54
Great TD, only thing I did not like a was that at some point it became ptp for me to get past a certain level with boss, even after countless hours and resource gathering, it required me to purchase some 10 dollar pack. I didn’t and ended up moving on. Then come and give it a second chance on iOS, and can’t restore data because it attaches to Google Games app, rather than FB. Game play is amazing and captivating though and nothing of those problems is the Devs fault directly. Would be cool if I could get compensated in game somehow though lol.
Best TD so far
by drasticbeatz.com on 2019/07/27 06:21
If your looking for a true tower defense game, this is it. No need to build towns, or buy tokens just straight TD - and its fun. I’ve been looking for a good strategy game for a while. Most just require you to frivolously buy upgrades just so you can buy more upgrades. Until a year goes buy and your still buying upgrades. But, as a fan of starcraft’s tower defense custom games, this hits the spot. I thank the developers for not going the route of “addiction psychology”, with their game, by sticking to the basics by making a game that is actually enjoyable. Five stars all day!
Fun, interesting game
by Castlewench on 2019/07/03 23:31
I’m not sure why people think they need to spend big money on this game. I spent a few small amounts on special events for the new hero and I’m currently on World 5. I do think the first 3 worlds were too easy. It was a relief to get through World 3 (long!), but overall it’s fun to play. I enjoy the new weapons available in each world and getting to know each world’s strategies and foes. It’s obvious that a lot of thought and care goes into the creation and design of each world. I’d like to see a sandbox world where I can build my own maze sometime. The spear throwers in World 3 could use some tweaking. They’re almost completely useless. Like every free game with in-game purchases, you can play to earn everything if you’re patient, or spend money if you’re not. The amount you spend directly correlates to your own patience. There is no pressure to spend. I don’t watch ads. Those are also offered tastefully and without pressure. Looking forward to more events and challenges!
Increasingly Pay 2 Win
by Starman6 on 2019/06/08 04:56
Been playing this game for a year and a half and gladly spent over $100 to support the Devs but, these guys have gotten way too greedy for my taste. Too bad as this used to be one of the best TD around. The real game here is buying Heroes and leveling them up for outrageous prices. The old heroes are nerfed before new ones are released so you feel compelled to buy them. They also offer you the chance to "Awaken" the nerfed heroes by spending even more or, months of grinding. Unlessc you do so, the paying players are so much stronger that you won't stand much of a chance in the Tournaments, which is what this game revolves around. Classic P2W.... Many of the original long term players have abandoned the game and, I'll be following soon. I'd much rather go back to playing Kingdom Rush, which this game is a cheap copy of.
All about the money!!
by Fitzxp on 2019/03/12 20:42
Should companies make money on their games? Of course, after all it’s a business but this in app purchase has taken all the fun out of games. Now companies want you to invest money and your time, which is also money, into their game only so that when the next release they can introduce a new hero and to make sure you spend more money, the weaken the hero’s you already had. This is BS and to weaken my hero’s that I paid for with my money and time should be a lawsuit. You want to add new enemies that my character need to train to kill fine but to weaken him and on top of that make the enemies stronger is way out of line. I am going back to pc games I would rather pay a onetime 60 bucks than this pay pay pay crap. No loyalty to players means no loyalty to the company.
GREAT game
by BloonGuy24 on 2019/05/13 11:32
A fantastic tower defense game that takes it to the next level. Always something to do in the game and keeps you coming back everyday. Another great thing is that as long as you put in some time you get everything you need without having to pay to play. I ended up putting in a few dollars for a hero i really wanted but i was happy to do so. And i NEVER put money into phone games lol. Will most likely put more in because i want to support the developers and keep this amazing game going. Well done guys, well done.
Money Grab
by chrisham8380 on 2019/06/08 22:45
Ok, I get it. The developers want to be able to make some money off of a game that they created...but I want everyone to think about this for a second. One of the purchase options for gems is $50 REAL MONEY, and that won’t buy you enough gems to make this game playable all the way through. You would still have to grind for MONTHS just to make progress after a certain point, or pay more money for more gems. Red Dead Redemption 2 costs $60 for the base game. I want a developer to explain to me why the hell they think this noble game is worth more than a game like that. Someone please explain that logic to me. Don’t play this game unless you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars or months of your life just to make a little progress.
Lots of continuous fun
by AndrewAdamWako1327 on 2018/12/30 03:23
I love the tower defense strategy games. Lately I have been disgusted by how greedy the game companies have become. I understand it’s a business but more than half are just pathetic. This game gives you plenty of gems throughout the levels so that you can earn awesome heroes like a game should. Whenever they handle themselves this way, it reminds me of humbleness. I’m more likely to spend money on a game I respect than a game I do not respect. This is easily the best tower defense game I’ve played and there were a lot. Thanks for the fun game. Keep it up guys.
Level 120 Campaign Bug
by Jdgmace on 2018/11/19 23:52
Loving the game. Challenging but doable once you get the hang of it. Only real problem I’ve run across is a bug that boots me out of the game when I beat level 120 in campaign mode and doesn’t save my progress. Very frustrating as I use quite a few high level power ups beating the level so I have to spend time stocking them back up. Hoping the latest patch fixes this. Haven’t tested it out yet. Playing on an iPhone, if that helps the developers isolate the issue. Other than that, highly recommend this game for those who enjoy the TD genre.
Glitch in tournaments
by Jen_n_Texas on 2019/09/24 13:52
I’ve really enjoyed this tower defense game but unfortunately there are several glitches that need addressing. The biggest glitch for me is the tournament. For some reason I stop collecting coins in the middle of the tournament which prevents me from upgrading my towers. It’s impossible to win the tournament when this happens so it appears to be rigged. Because I spend earned gems to play in the tournament, this is a serious flaw, made worse by the game developers ignoring the reported issue. I’ve reported it at least 4 times over the past several months, requesting a refund of the gems AND a refund of the real $$ I opted to spend to get more gems. I’ve had no response. I will report this to Apple as well to get a refund on all $$ spent on this game.
Great start, but too greedy to play past a month
by Jjw2244 on 2018/07/07 20:36
Game starts off incredibly strong and fun with unique levels. It’s fun to unlock champions but as soon as the first month of free bonuses are gone and you get up past gold league, the game kind of teeters out and requires $20-60 of purchases to remain competitive in tournaments. The levels are still unique but the game maker just seems greedy to have the cost to purchase champions higher than going out and purchasing a new game console and 11 games... for a mobile platform, you’d think you could advance in the game for far less than what they charge, considering they have 100 different ads running throughout the game. Overall, would maybe download for a month but uninstall after world 2.
Limited energy?
by Skinmann01 on 2019/10/23 13:59
Increased my rating from 1-star to 3 because of a developer response showing they care about making their game fun. I will play the game more and look forward to future updates that will make this game more user friendly. Why would you put an energy requirement in this game? There is no point to it other than to be annoying. Game is fun but when I am limited to how much I can play for no good reason at all then I can neither support nor play this game. I do not recommend this game unless you enjoy being frustrated by being throttled on how much you can play and when you can play.

The One
by Shadow_222 on 2019/12/08 11:58
This is the TD game we want and don’t deserve. No annoying ads, micro transactions are reasonable and the overall game play is addictive. 10/10
The best in class

Fun game you can grind and not pay to play
Not playable without constant spending.
by sierra shadow on 2019/12/05 16:13
Eventually you get to where you can’t do anything without spending huge money. I don’t mind paying for a good game but to simply keep the game going you need to spend at least $20 a month. Not worth it.
Good game
by Jhshahajsndnsoems on 2019/12/04 16:33
Pretty fun
Play this game
by dollap o daisy on 2019/12/04 14:52
I would say that you have to pass a few levels before you can get to the actual gameplay yet it still manages to make the totoreal or however you spell that fun because you still play but it teaches you things aka game mechanics so I give this a five star rating PS I haven’t seen any bugs
Entertaining
by M2short on 2019/12/04 05:37
It starts slow but as you expect it gets better the more you play it I do recommend this game
Awayyyyy
by HighEloGamer on 2019/12/03 22:01
Absolutely awful!! Plz Stay away from this worthless and degenerate game. The paste to make progress in this game is to literally remove your brain from your skull so you won’t mind waiting for ages , or shake your wallet into garbage products. The rate they offer you to buy stuff is beyond any logical or mathematical sense. Thanks good after a day of trying I was able to understand everything about this game and what a pice of garbage this experience was.

Currently it’s forcing me to write this, else can’t get through message screen. Overall fun, definitely balanced in a way to try and get you to pay for items/worlds/upgrades.
Great fun

Love tower defense games and this one is great.
Been looking for a simple strategy game
by Lnt5786 on 2019/11/30 21:53
Love it. Simple yet entertaining. Some of these recent added games in the apps store are so bogus, with fake bots and just lame gameplay. With crummy graphics. This game shows great details down to the Hero’s story. I find it very exhilarating
Best fighting game
by LoveYourGameGian on 2019/11/30 21:46
I really like this game it’s really fun unlocking hero’s and fighting new mobs every time I also like unlocking skills for my hero’s

Really do love the game, but lacking long term playability.
by James6449 on 2019/11/27 15:54
I really like this game and log in a couple of times a day. The only thing is that there have been days in a row where I couldn’t do anything without paying actual money. I don’t mind paying upfront for a game but dislike the whole concept where the more money you spend the further you can go. Hopefully there can be an update soon where the newest worlds aren’t so difficult to get into. I have been stuck getting into world 4 for about a month or so. I’ve gotten two stars on the last level of world 3 and can’t get the full three stars. So now the game is stangnant for me and going to get deleted. I’ve already done all of the daily challenges, it’s just disappointing to now have nothing left to do because of one simple star.
Lots of fun
by Wrathbone7 on 2019/11/27 12:13
You can keep playing without being forced to pay-to-play...I respect that
A great and fun strategy game
by Zender the best critic on 2019/11/27 09:51
You can have fun and not have to pay. The game is different and with each world changes the powers, And moves of your caricatures.
Great game but a little to pushy with pay to play
by GJT grand prix on 2019/11/25 04:59
Overall the game is great, one of the best Tower defense I’ve played on mobile. Only problem I have is the pay to play. It’s pushed a little too much. I can’t go to the next area unless I meet annoying requirements or pay money. For example I have to compete against other players in a tournament for best time defending and win medals, of which I need to spend a certain amount of those medals as one of the requirements to unlock the next area. Which can only be used on buying skins at the moment, which is pointless towards actual gameplay. Or pay 4 bucks to unlock the next area. It also increases the requirements amount or value with each area.
Great game

Awesome TD, Only couple issues
by DrQuinn503 on 2019/11/21 18:54
Great TD, only thing I did not like a was that at some point it became ptp for me to get past a certain level with boss, even after countless hours and resource gathering, it required me to purchase some 10 dollar pack. I didn’t and ended up moving on. Then come and give it a second chance on iOS, and can’t restore data because it attaches to Google Games app, rather than FB. Game play is amazing and captivating though and nothing of those problems is the Devs fault directly. Would be cool if I could get compensated in game somehow though lol.

Very fun but takes some time to level up to open new levels u less you want to pay for them to be unlocked early. There are some bugs with the ads that allow for extra special items but overall this is a very fun and challenging game
Better than I expected
by evan.eberspacher on 2019/11/17 20:44
I’ve been around the block on tower defense games. I’m usually disappointed. This one makes you work but isn’t completely impossible. I found it fun and entertaining and am looking forward to more. Please expand soon. I’m hoping for another endless mode and more side missions for the last few worlds.
Great game!
by Doodlesend on 2019/11/17 08:17

Great game with no pay wall

A great game that combines idle with action!
Very entertaining
by Cee--Jay on 2019/11/16 22:43
Lots of fun, you can play pretty much as long as you want without ever having to wait for energy to recharge or anything and you can find ways to make things easier or harder depending on how much of a challenge you want. Could be a casual game for fun every now and then or a competitive one without having to spend any money. Very good game.
Average Game
by dadoggies on 2019/11/16 06:06
2.5/5 stars game. The gameplay UI is subpar compared with KR. KR shows you the range of your towers before you placed them. But this game places towers upon first touch, without giving you a chance to plan your tower placements based on range coverage. KR just feels way more polished; this game feels like a rough gem.

by Mateo0831 on 2019/11/09 03:17
I enjoy the game a lot. But u bought a barrel of gems and the transaction froze the game. Now every time I get into the game it tells me I have a purchase I need to restore and when I click restore it fails. Every time. I’ve contacted support and after a quick back a forth about my situation they wanted. A picture of receipt of purchase. I sent picture of proof of purchase and haven’t heard back since. It has been nearly two weeks... every day it feels more and more like they just stole money from me.
Fun
by ifoqovr on 2019/11/08 15:23
Pretty fun. No pressure to make purchases. Can usually get items by watching a video. Pretty good tower defense game.
Fun until World 3 then it takes real money
by TheLoneDrake on 2019/11/07 13:00
Enjoyed the game since I first downloaded it. Love the heroes and the different ways you can improve them. HOWEVER, without spending real money on this “free-to-play” game, you will dead-end at World 3. I am at level 78 with 2 of my heroes awakened to gold tier and by wave 2 it’s game over. There’s no way to strategize through the stage or win with skill, it becomes pay to win, the worst kind of game. That or grind away for months before you can make any real progress again. I will gladly watch ads for more gems, but that isn’t even an option either. Once you exhaust all means to reliably earn gems, you are done.
plain fun

by FearOfFae on 2019/11/05 15:40
I “finished” the lessons. Went back to replay a level for better stars. The annoying useless dude popped back up to tell me to use explosive barrels. Because I had already played that part, he didn’t give me any. So the message wouldn’t go away. It would also be nice if I could see how many stars I have already earned.

Game froze and lost all of my power ups in the middle of a boss match
by Cameron Hightower on 2019/11/04 19:51
It took me four days to get all my power up items so I could beat the world 5 final boss so I could get three stars. And it froze, kicked me out of the game on the final wave! I’d appreciate if I was given those power up items back so I can take another crack at it. Otherwise I’m just going to stop playing this game because I’m not going to keep grinding for these items if I’m just going to lose them again if it freezes up. Thanks!
Fun and entertaining!

Would like to see stat numbers
by Mathius.83 on 2019/11/04 13:24
The only thing keeping me from giving this a 5 star rating; Show stat numbers. -Tower attack damage, attack speed... -Hero stats: hp, attack, defense, etc.

Great game, plenty of FTP content and not too crazy pay options.
Good

This game is good. I just wish I had my old account on my broken phone
Lots of fun
by snarfer3498 on 2019/11/02 17:30
I wish all tower defense games were this well designed and this much fun. Reminiscent of Kingdom Rush and the like. Fun heroes with different abilities and magic. Can’t stop playing.

Fun for two days
by Danny t09 on 2019/10/26 18:34
Game makes you buy gems to advance to the 3rd map. So you’ll play for a week before it pretty much makes you pay to buy a map. So long story short you have two free maps that you can get to with 1-3days worth.
Realm Defense
by Lord Brandon (house of Povey) on 2019/10/16 21:17
Hello everyone, I’m just gonna write a few reason I think Realm Defense is the best tower defense game out there. Your standard tower defense games are just the same thing over and over. In Realm Defense you Gabe hero’s you can unlock and buy and level them up to Increase there stats and special attacks. There a multitude of mini games to be played as well, which allows us users to earn power items or ether or unlock stronger hero’s. You have arcade mode and endless mode which is a good way to earn free power ups by using your raid cards you automatically get the highest level for the world that you’ve completed. The developers are very friendly and very fast on response time when I contact them. I’ve always won free gems a few times by just share Realm Defense Facebook post. Just share there post and keep a look out for other free give aways. And it only cost you one share of Realm Defense Facebook post, so you can’t beat that, easy free money boys. An to the developer’s who have worked countless days an night to make this game the best it can an I thank you all, Everyone who had anything to do with this game should be very proud of themselves. An I would just like to say thank to your whole team from developers to graphic design team to the coders, Artists/Visual’s, an the customer support team you all were a huge help in getting me my gems I win. Keep up the great work and remember stay a team an this game will take your company to the next level.
Very fun buuuuut...(minor rant)
by god him selffff on 2019/10/24 08:16
I rated this 5 stars because I enjoy playing this game very much and I see no huge flaws yet. The only thing that I think needs buffing is the elixir mine(s). I think that it should generate way quicker. It would be helpful if it generated quicker so I could level up my hero’s faster. Whilst on the topic of hero’s, I need to complain a little about the rate you gain cards for your hero’s to level up(the non elixir route aka the grind route). I’m only just starting out so I don’t know if this changes later in the game but, you gain like 1-15 cards for year hero’s to level per 3 star win. It sounds like a lot at first but when you need thousands it’s nothing. I think they should buff this rate too. Not too much but maybe like 30-45 cards for hero’s per 3 star win. Once again, I don’t know for sure if this changes post-game. Other than those minor things this game is very fun and addictive. Personally I really like how the more stars you get the more you can upgrade your towers. Anyways, this game is very unique, fun, and all around enjoyable to play. I recommend this game 10/10!!!
Months of EPIC gameplay until world 3!
by jetthepuet on 2019/07/12 14:48
This is one of the best free tower games! However, everything stops once you reach the end of world 3...this is where I feel the game falls short and becomes a cash cow. 1) it takes forever to earn free gems (30 daily login non stop + extras will earn you 2000+ gems a month with each decent heroes costing 6000+. It will take 3-4months of daily play to buy a medium rank hero). 2) forced to micromanage EVERYTHING what you buy/use early on 3) tournaments are pointless once you reach gold rank since you will be under leveled. You stay idle until you spend gems to upgrade heroes so you can compete with other players who have max heroes. There should be an up/down league ranking system to earn more gems so we can qualify to earn more free gems 4) since you’re underleveled and and can’t finish harder overpowering levels the game will crash consistently. There is ZERO recovery. If you wasted items on a level and game crashes then all items used are lost leaving you in the negative and starting over from beginning 5) The only remedy to all these problems is to buy gems. As a freebie player you’ll need lots of patience, time and Gems so you can level up, unlock or buy better expensive heroes. This is really a great game with lots of potential but once you reach midway you’re stuck and everything becomes a repetitive grind for free gems.
Very fun game that’s free if you want it to be
by deadmans2 on 2018/09/30 17:53
Overall as far as good tower defense games go I really enjoy playing this! Although it’s not my favorite type of TD (i prefer ones you build mazes with your towers) Got it when it only had one world and have been playing every now and again since! Never needed to spend any money on it and have all but one hero that was just released and this is a really good game with constant updates and support. The team working on this game has been fantastic and constantly delivered! Only thing I have a complaint about is the balancing of hero’s. There’s really no point to using more than half of the hero’s because the balancing is just really bad (although they are the cheap ones) the new hero’s typically are always better than any old ones even though the abilities are vastly different. They Need to work on how to balance some things so that certain hero’s actually give you a strategy. Why waste time on the awaking tokens for older hero’s? When the new hero’s cost the same amount of gems basically and automatically are better. This is apparent in the tournament mode where you can see everyone in the top 10 uses the same hero set.
Best app game I’ve had
by dragondawg on 2018/03/20 03:02
This is by far one of my favorite games. I used to be so bored in study hall because eventually the no-internet app games get old. When I started playing this I was surprised by how fast time went by. I play it in my free time too now and love it especially because of the heroes you can get that really add to the tower defense basis. I don’t spend any real money on items or heroes and find that it is still just as fun. If you take the time to work at the levels and level up your heroes, try new strategies, and check the box for what other people suggested then it’s no problem. No money needed. I am a bit over halfway through world 2 so maybe I might change my view on not spending money later on when it gets harder or I have to unlock other worlds but for now I love this game a lot and I still will even if I need to spend some money eventually. You can always get heroes for gems and right now I don’t see them cornering me into buying something with real money which is great. Also it doesn’t inundate me with ads which is another plus. Five stars, no doubt.
For a free game...it’s the best TD game I’ve ever played.
by Mallikess on 2018/02/03 21:04
Pretty “schwifty” game, I must say. I’ve played a plethora of Tower Defense games over the years (love the idea), and by far — best one out there! There are so many extra variables (other than the main quests) that really raise the bar to a level passed all other TD games I’ve played. Insee a lot of people complaining about the game becoming very difficult if you don’t pay-to-play...well, if that’s what you want, then just don’t play any games that SHOW that in game purchases are a thing. I’m sure there are a good number of ppl who’ve made this game possible, and they’ve spent a lot of time, effort, energy & $ of their own to bring this to you. I say stop feeling entitled to getting everything for free & enjoy what you’re given. You don’t HAVE to spend $ in this game to make it all the way thru (I’m not thru yet, but close) and in retrospect, the few $ that I did spend wasn’t 100% necessary. Thx for the great game devs!!!
World 3 money grab
by Roxas4522 on 2019/05/13 21:28
Enjoy the game up til world 3. After that the enemies are so overpowered if you haven’t spent hundreds of dollars of real money the game says **** you and won’t let you pass until you grind for months to get enough gems for the most obvious money grab heroes that are literally 100% the only way to pass halfway through world three. There’s a way to comment on how to beat a stage and literally every comment says how stupid hard the levels are, buy the expensive heroes to beat, or random crap that doesn’t help at all but has hundreds of thumbs up on. Why make the game free if you want money? Just make the game cost 5 bucks to download and you have money lazy devs. No seriously go play through the first 2 world where you can almost place 0 towers and beat and then go play world 3 and have FULLY UGRADED TOWERS and lose because the game is based on low percentage luck if you don’t have the fifty dollar real money heroes. Oh and that’s 50 real dollars for each single hero and then you have to grind and pay in order to make it actually good. They come so low leveled and it takes so much experience to level up by the time you can legitimately get them your only way to level them up is with elixir which generates so slow unless you pump money into it you might as well go Kill yourself instead.
Be prepared to spend a lot of money if you want to progress.
by award93 on 2019/05/11 20:30
Overall fun game with lots of strategy involved. Like most games with micro transactions, your progression will shortly be halted due to running out of gems and resources. These of course can be obtained in small amounts with time gates or can be purchased. There are certain levels that can be near impossible to beat without specific high level hero’s which can be bought with money or with gems that would take weeks or months of grinding to get. I myself have spent around $20 on this game and won’t be spending anymore seeing how fast your progress is halted due to running out resources. Fun game but would not recommend investing any money into it. You will find yourself spending FAR more then what this game is worth. The $20 I have spent on the game really wasn’t worth it in terms of what I got from it. Fun game to play every once and a while but I highly recommend NOT spending any money unless you really want to dedicate yourself to this game and plan on playing for a long time. I wish this game charged a one time fee and unlocked much more. It’s far too expensive otherwise.
Fun, but barely any end game content
by TVett on 2019/07/09 02:51
The game is fun, the character grind is ok (annoying but it controls progress), my real gripe comes from the fact that I’ve been playing for a few months (3) and there is only one more map to unlock. I haven’t spent any real money on the game, so I’d imagine if you paid for characters then it would be even quicker. The main problem comes from the fact that you can’t gain character lvls unless you use them on missions you have never completed before. If you replay the same lvl, the characters get 0 exp. this makes upgrading characters impossible unless it’s through the elixir mine (another feature that you MUST spend gems on to upgrade). This is just lazy development, they only want your money and they don’t update the game fast enough. I’d imagine the developers are few and they just sit on their hands collecting money. Lazy developers will get none of my hard earned money. Anyone spending money on this game is a fool. Just look at the critical reviews and the replies from their dev team. They are all snarky remarks defending their design and logic around paying lots of money. The majority of 4-5 stars are paid reviews, you can look up their account names on the fake game review org site.
Okay for a day
by jjj135689 on 2018/10/07 11:10
Was a fun game for a day or two. Pretty disappointed how many hoops you have to jump through to just progress to world 3. Most games you finish a level and move on to the next...not this one. I guess you have spend some money and hope it’s worth it. It’s still unclear what exactly I need to move on. I need to clear S9 to upgrade the first skill of my hero and have to wait 24 hours after beating one stage until the next is available. So 8 days total it will take me to upgrade one ability. You can’t even rush the process with gems. Why the F would anyone spend money on this game?? I cleared everything on world 1 and 2 legendary mode in like 2 days with the two 1500 gem heroes so what incentive do I have spend 3k each on two more? I get to move to the next level, and have another 2 days worth of content. I downloaded this game like a week or week and a half ago. I log in once or twice a day to collect my elixir and do shattered realms and the daily etc. like 10 minutes of content a day. And when I do, I have the option to skip battle with an ad. That’s annoying.
Entertaining, but you have to pay to keep playing
by NagromSC on 2018/09/06 20:53
This game is very similar to the Kingdom Rush games. I enjoyed it, but beyond a certain point you have to unlock two certain characters to play more levels. The only way to get both characters in anything approaching a reasonable timeframe is, as you may have guessed, to buy them. I might have been willing to if they were a dollar or two, but at over $10 it’s not worth the money and without being able to play the additional levels the game quickly becomes boring and tedious. My advice - get the game for free, play the levels you can without spending any money, then move on to another game. Is a game where you basically *have* to spend money to proceed one you really want to play? Update: After finally playing long enough to get the two heroes required to unlock the next world, I see that the same is true for the next following world. To make it worse, the required heroes are even *more* expensive, both to “earn” in game (which takes forevvvvvvvver) and “real world” money if you choose to purchase them.
Excellent gameplay, although progress is a grind
by dlkjhg on 2019/09/03 06:13
The game itself is superb. The levels are (usually) balances, thoughtfully crafted, and beautiful; the heroes are diverse and interesting; the world-based towers offer great variety; and the enemies are a blast to take down. The game does an excellent job of making you feel like a genius when you’ve discovered a winning strategy. The only negatives are the scarce consumables and looooong stalls in progress while grinding (sometimes for weeks) to acquire the gems necessary to rank-up and beat a tough level. This can make the game terribly boring at times, for long stretches of time. The devs could address this a number of ways; for instance, by offering unlimited endless-level keys in realms the player has mastered, or even by something as simple as shortening the cool down for realm siege (currently set at a grueling 24 hours per 2 free plays... yikes). But on the whole, the game is among the best of its kind. I rated it 4 stars out of 5 because its problems, while eminently fixable, really do impinge my enjoyment.
A True Rival for Kingdom Rush
by Somanas on 2018/07/15 20:35
Like the tower defense genre? Like Kingdom Rush? Like not being bored? Then you’re probably gonna love this game! I’ve been a longtime fan of the aforementioned game, so much so that I condsidered the series to be in a league of its own. After playing through the first two worlds of this game though...I’m gonna have to clear some new space off of that pedestal. While paying homage to so many of the aspects key to Kingdom Rush’s fun and replayability, it adds its own features in that seem so natural among the tried and true formula. Adding extra levels and conversation bits with your heroes as you level them up feels so right and the Arcade feature that asks you to only use items to win brings the spotlight to a sometimes under appreciated side of these games. I’m nowhere near the end of the main part of Realm Defense, but that just makes me all the more excited for what’s to come!
Welp. (Game progress erased)
by Chodeee on 2019/04/01 14:38
Was having a lot of fun with this game and had finally unlocked world 5 after grinding for nearly 3 months, (though I did also spend $7 on the Raida event when I started to get a good hero and speed up the process) only to have all of my progress completely wiped by a glitch on one of the early World 5 levels. The app relies on Game Center for you to backup your progress, but seeing as the app was removed from iPhones at IOS10 it is considerably less reliable and hardly functions how it used to. I was hardly surprised when I attempted to restore my backup (which was probably in the middle of world 4) for nothing to happen at all. Most other games I’ve played have their own account cloud service should issues like this arise (e.g. Hive), but after emailing support I was told the ONLY way to retrieve lost progress is through Game Center or Google Play. Needless to say, I’m not pouring all that time/more money back into this game despite the fact that it was becoming a daily play. The game itself is very fun, but not worth it if your progress isn’t truly secure.
Money grab, P2W
by Rfgigvdsy on 2018/03/30 17:33
Great game until the only way to move on is to pay after about 2 days of playing. Only way to move on is to have a certain amount of hero’s and those cost gems, 3000 gems. Once you beat all the levels and complete several quest objectives you can obtain 4 maybe 5 hero’s. To move on you need 6 hero’s. You either need to wait several several months get enough gems to buy a 6th hero or pay for the gems to move on. If you do pay, this process only repeats its self as you go from world to world. So not only would you pay once, you would need to pay several times to keep moving on. They also nerfed the levels that award gems so is impossible to any significant gems from them. Don’t download if you are not prepared to pay, you will only be frustrated after a few days of play.
Good game / Horrible Support / Don’t spend money
by pmat7 on 2018/10/06 19:23
This game is a good game play wise. However you are consistently being push to pay to win. Also pushed to watch ads if you want items. Or play for 15 mins to get them. I don’t have a problem with that. I have two major issues. One there is no support. Not via the contact us or via Facebook. No one will respond. So if you do spend money you do that at your own risk. Personally If I could do it again I would play but not buy anything. And when it gets old move on. Without support and if something happens, your screwed if you had paid. Second, there was a event recently hero event that was exploited by tons of users that gave them lots of awakening tokens and the new hero fully awakened. It’s really change the landscape of the game. They didn’t handle it right and you can see the complaints on reddit. The support is the biggest issue. If you don’t respond to support request then you really don’t let people feel like you care. It’s just a money grab at the end of the day.
Amazing game with a few mishaps.
by Tito1189 on 2018/07/17 18:19
So I’ve had this game for a little under a year now. And it’s honestly one of my favorite games it’s so much fun to play. I’ve even went out and made a few micro transactions because I wanted to support this game. But recently I have been having issues with the tournaments in the game. No matter what score I get I can never get into the top 3 there have been multiple instances of where I have gotten a higher score than the person in 3rd place but the game always places me 4th? I have sent 2 emails already with screenshots showing exactly the issue I am having. The first one I was told it was going to be fixed. But it wasn’t fixed but it wasn’t that big of a deal so I didn’t care. Then it happened again a couple of days ago. So I resent a second email to them again with pictures but no reply yet. And now a new tournament started and I’m still having the same issue. If at all possible please fix this as soon as possible.
Very enjoyable
by M. Ryan on 2019/02/13 12:51
I can’t lie, I really enjoy this game. I feel like it’s one of, if not the best type of its genre with great graphics, unique heroes to choose from with fun, small interactive scenes with the heroes and challenging levels throughout the worlds. That said, I do have a couple issues with how difficult it is to level up heroes and the rate at which it takes. You get such a minimal amount of eco after finishing a level and once it’s finished at 3 stars, you don’t ever receive anymore EXP. You get a daily amount of elixir which can be used to level up heroes, but it’s such a small amount, capping at not even 1,700 units/8hrs and, at level 26, a hero will need almost 13,000 EXP to level up. Moreover, getting a new hero is basically impossible to level up. A higher cap on realm siege would be nice as well 😁 At the end of the day, though, I’ll continue playing the game because it is so much fun to me
Great game, great devs!
by Jacobshade on 2019/05/14 11:02
I’ve been playing this game for about a year and a half now, and I’m constantly impressed with the hard work the devs put in to keep the game fresh and fun. It really feels like they listen to what their player-base wants in the game, and makes changes accordingly. One thing I love about this game is that it isn’t pay-to-win like many free games in the App Store. It’s a good balance of giving you the option to advance faster through paying, but is by no means a necessity. Ironically, this has been more encouraging to me to spend some money on the game here and there, as I wish to keep supporting the devs. As for gameplay, the hero system makes it unique from other tower defense games, and keeps the game consistently entertaining as you work to buy new hero’s with new powers and strategies.
Too easy
by Clashofclanguy on 2019/01/31 15:53
I’ve beaten 3 of the full maps already and I haven’t lost a single heart. This game would be a lot more fun if it let you switch to insanely hard mode or something where they attacked with 10 times as many guys. I literally don’t even build anything half the time my hero’s just kill all the guys. I’d say the game difficulty level is set for like someone and preschool or something. It’s really disappointing because the game mechanics are all there and you could tell it would be a fun game if there was a challenge. What makes it even worse is by the time you get to the end of a map there is the smallest amount of challenge then it goes to a new map that starts at ultra easy. It makes no sense to start back at easy because your hero’s are all leveled up now... the next map should be 3 to 4 times as hard. Legendary mode is a joke I can’t even tell the difference between legendary and standard mode.
FIXED: Latest update buggy
by poly_sci on 2018/12/13 15:26
Update: The developers are a class act. They sent all players a message apologizing for the no-text visible bug saying to reinstall. That fixed it for me and I didn’t lose anything. Plus they have out some bonus items in the game for the trouble. Thank you, devs! The latest update (today is Dec. 12, 2018) removed the labels on the bottom of the screen such as “Tournament” “World Map”, etc. and the “Sale” category only has one entry. Also on the World Map, the world names are now just “nil 1”, “nil 2”, etc. instead of “World 1”, “World 2”, etc. I can still play the game but some things are missing. I am confident the developers will fix it soon because they seem pretty dedicated. It’s a great tower defense game otherwise.
Super fun, but there are some glitches
by M-Hulk on 2018/12/14 15:32
First of all, I love the game. This is the way free to play games should be designed. Yes, there is a way to purchase your way to victory, but it’s not required at all. I think the prices for gems. Heroes, etc. are very fair. The game is super fun and it keeps me wanting to play more and more! That being said, the game does not sync well between my iPhone and iPad. Every time I switch to a different device, I have to play 1 or 2 levels again to get back to my previous spot. It is ok for now, because the game is fun and I don’t mind playing levels over again, but it could also become very annoying if I ever had difficulty beating a level and need to play it again. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon!! Great game, will get 5 stars from me as soon as those sync errors are fixed.
Buggy knockoff of kingdom rush
by Mauigator on 2018/03/27 20:21
I’ll keep it simple and do my pro’s and con’s: Pro’s -solid TD game. If you like TD you will get some entertainment out of this game. -plenty of game modes/challenges to keep it interesting -best feature is the tournament. It’s fun to try to improve your times in the endless modes for the tournament each week and move up the charts. Con’s -game freezes often on me and doesn’t register touches on the screen at times which is frustrating while playing. -the watch video option to get another tourney entry rarely works. Game freezes at the video loading screen. Could be intentional to frustrate you into spending gems on additional entries. -spent $5.99 on a starter promotion. Had account linked to facebook, when I deleted and reloaded the game to try to fix screen freeze issue, I lost all progress, heroes and gems and had to start from scratch. Zero help from apple or devs. -ultimately your progress in the game is tied directly to the strength of your heroes. You need the latest (most expensive) heroes to compete. -basically it comes down to how you feel about games that are designed to cash in on your impatience/frustration. There is so much time gating in this game along with the hero strength issue, if you are extremely patient you can enjoy this game for free. If not, this game can get extremely expensive very quickly.
It gets way too hard by the 4th world
by AstralSerpent on 2019/02/12 18:42
I really loved this game up until the 4th world. It’s one of the best tower defense games out there for a good portion of the game but it gets so hard it’s almost unplayable. Not to mention that the good characters are so expensive that it takes months of grinding or paying upwards of 20+ bucks just to get 1 of the characters needed to complete higher levels because the others are less than adequate. That’s not even counting the experience potions to level these ridiculously expensive characters to make them worth anything. Pay to win rears it’s ugly head here. I love the game and really wanna play it but I can’t because of the difficulty in the higher levels. The higher levels need nerfed and the good characters need to be cheaper. Otherwise I’m stuck, can no longer play and need another tower defense game.
Realm Defense Rocks!
by Zaefodbeeblebrox on 2018/01/13 15:02
Ever since Kingdom Rush stopped making TD styled games, there was a vacuum that Realm Defense filled. The maps are challenging and worlds ever expanding. The artwork is exceptional and creative. Realm Defense is a game I look forward to playing every day to earn a few gems and test my skills. I like saving over time to earn a new hero. The leveling is well planned and incremental to skill level. Animations are very impressive, though it would be nice to have more interactive background features like in KR, like little games, or characters that help during game play. An example would be KR Origins where there is a gnome you click on to play a “Simon-like” mushroom game to earn coins. But overall Realm Defense is my favorite TD app.
Great Game Devs!
by Wigwump on 2018/07/16 07:53
Realm defense is a fun, easy to pickup, but tediously strategic tower defense game. It’s great to play and I love that it can still be played offline (with limited functions). As the game progresses you get more and enthralled in each level; every time you unlocked the next level your strategy must change as well. The art style is pleasant and the world are very challenging. However, after reaching world 3 and onward, you may find yourself very stuck without paying for some pricey in-app-purchases for better heroes. There needs to be a better way to afford the high level heroes and acquire more gems than the game currently offers. Certain levels seem to demand the top $ heroes. I appreciate that the game isn’t completely pay to play.... But it does feel that way later on into the game.
Developers and quality control allowed cheaters to ruin this competitive game
by fliodolo on 2018/08/12 02:33
I’ve played this game daily over the past year. It was a great game. Got to legendary many times, have all the heroes, did the daily small grind that allowed me the rewards of playing what was an exceptionally good tower defense game. Your strongest hitters are your heroes, that you level and grow through significant investments in time and effort. The end game is the weekly tournaments in which you try to score the highest in your league, allowing you to advance and unlock more gems. In the past week, the developers created an event that unlocked a new hero. A game-destroying bug, unfortunately, allowed many users to exploit, allowing them to create impossibly strong heroes. Now it wouldn’t matter if you played this game in isolation. Unfortunately you don’t. You are ranked in time and kills versus the next player, hundreds of now whom have impossible-to-farm-strength heroes due to the exploit. The developers did nothing to punish the bug exploiters and now you are competing against these cheaters. It will be impossible to beat them from here on. I don’t see how I can enjoy playing this game especially if the developers allow cheating to run rampant. My last year in time has been wasted because the developers could not even the playing field against exploitation. I am uninstalling this game.
Love the game but I’m a little Frustrated
by Balocka P on 2019/01/31 03:12
I love the game but it won’t let me back the game up and the game glitched and wouldn’t let me do anything. It kept saying I needed to be online to play or unlock things so I waited like 2 days so I deleted the game and well... it worked buuuuuut... I lost everything. I don’t mind restarting because it was my dumb fault for it happening but I wish there was a way I could back it up because I would try to every now and then but it would just load and not stop loading. I’m gonna give this game a 5 star just because I love the game but just for anyone that has this problem now you know.
Extreme greed from developers
by Ryan kiley on 2019/09/29 16:24
When you first get the game it is really fun since it gives you a lot of monetized game currency to buy cheap hero’s with, but as you play the game for longer (I have had it for almost a year) you find yourself unable to complete the levels without buying better hero’s to play with. Also as you play for longer there are less ways to earn monetized game currency without grinding the game for months... people have done the math and it would take almost 2 years to get everything in the game without paying... and that’s if you played the timing system so there was absolutely no time wasted. Even if you buy the most expensive pack of monetized game currency, you are still unable to buy all the hero’s because they are overpriced, especially the late game ones. NOT A GOOD APP TO GET FOR THE LONG RUN, but it’s great if you just want to play it for a day or so.
Great TD game!
by Griffindor🐖 on 2019/05/25 04:38
This is a great example of how to make TD games better. Though I understand that on the whole TD games are pretty straight forward but I really enjoy how Realm Defense really pushes the limits as far as creating new challenges... the only criticism I have is how easy the first few worlds are (I have yet to finish world 3 and find the campaign a bit too easy but again, I am only a few worlds in so things may change) For example, “legendary mode” so far, is too easy to plow through... again it may still be early... on the other hand, endless mode and shattered realms seem to have adjustable difficulty which is good... all in all this is a great TD game with tons of extras! Thanks for all the awesome work on a great game!
Really do love the game, but lacking long term playability.
by James6449 on 2019/11/27 15:54
I really like this game and log in a couple of times a day. The only thing is that there have been days in a row where I couldn’t do anything without paying actual money. I don’t mind paying upfront for a game but dislike the whole concept where the more money you spend the further you can go. Hopefully there can be an update soon where the newest worlds aren’t so difficult to get into. I have been stuck getting into world 4 for about a month or so. I’ve gotten two stars on the last level of world 3 and can’t get the full three stars. So now the game is stangnant for me and going to get deleted. I’ve already done all of the daily challenges, it’s just disappointing to now have nothing left to do because of one simple star.
Needs improvement but it’s a great game
by Cawnlol on 2018/01/11 05:21
The game overall is great, but there are some parts of the game that need work, like the fact that some enemies are to strong or the towers are to weak. Also the fact that the hero’s are so expensive that you need to bye gems, which some people can’t afford and they end up getting stuck on a couple of levels and can’t continue also meaning that there hero’s can’t improve and the bonus upgrades are very difficult to earn when you get stuck. So rebalancing is highly recommended as well as lowering the price of the hero’s. Thanks for reading.
Pay to Play
by StephenReviewsApps on 2018/09/19 04:24
There’s about 2 days worth of free game play. Then everything is hidden behind pay walls. You can’t actually progress/play regularly without spending money. A greater frustration than that however is the “Goblin Gift” side game. You intentionally jacked the armor up on all the minions - by a lot. I’ve laid down every combination possible of towers and they still stroll right through. (I played through all of the first 2 maps with perfect scores & beat all legendary modes - so I know how much damage I should be doing) Then it cost gems to retry! But of course, when it cost gems (aka $$$) then it becomes unbeatable... Either it’s bugged or it’s a clever way to get money from people. But instead of my money, all you’re getting from me is a 1 star rating. Maybe rename “Arcade Mode” to “Carnival Mode” seeing how they’re unfair games designed to take peoples money.
A really strong tower defense game.
by DaltinoCox on 2019/05/25 15:14
I’ve played a number of TD games over the years, and this is one of my favorites. The mix of heroes, abilities, tower variation, and map layouts gives you a lot of freedom to try different things and play the game with your own strategy as opposed to needing to do one exact strategy for each level. I really enjoy the daily aspects they’ve added in with challenges and rewards. The only thing stopping me from making it 5 stars is that, now three worlds into the story, I’m managing to beat levels with all my lives and half of the necessary towers built. I’d like there to be a little bit more of a challenge in the main story once it gets going.
An actually great game!
by Mobile Gaming Fan on 2018/06/18 17:28
I don’t really make reviews but this game is so good I had to review it. I love playing tower defense games but this one is by far the best I’ve ever played. It is fun and relaxing, but challenging enough to be interesting. It has so many more levels and extra features than most TD games. But the best part is there isn’t really any adds unless you want to watch them for a free reward. And the game rewards you with plenty of gems for playing so you don’t have to spend money to make progress. I am really loving this game so far and I’ve played 60 levels so far. I highly recommend this game!
Great game but a little to pushy with pay to play
by GJT grand prix on 2019/11/25 04:59
Overall the game is great, one of the best Tower defense I’ve played on mobile. Only problem I have is the pay to play. It’s pushed a little too much. I can’t go to the next area unless I meet annoying requirements or pay money. For example I have to compete against other players in a tournament for best time defending and win medals, of which I need to spend a certain amount of those medals as one of the requirements to unlock the next area. Which can only be used on buying skins at the moment, which is pointless towards actual gameplay. Or pay 4 bucks to unlock the next area. It also increases the requirements amount or value with each area.
I was charged twice!
by Mz. Bryson on 2018/12/21 01:18
I recently bought the sale for $9.99 to get 3000 gems and it didn’t get go through the first time. I waited for about ten min to see if there was a delay and I still didn’t receive my gems. So I figured that the purchase/transaction didn’t go through, and so then I re-purchased the pack. I received the gems after trying the second time; however, after checking my bank, it showed that I was charged twice, while still only receiving one set of the 3,000 gems! I either need a refund or an extra 3000 gems! Seriously
Awesome TD, Only couple issues
by DrQuinn503 on 2019/11/21 18:54
Great TD, only thing I did not like a was that at some point it became ptp for me to get past a certain level with boss, even after countless hours and resource gathering, it required me to purchase some 10 dollar pack. I didn’t and ended up moving on. Then come and give it a second chance on iOS, and can’t restore data because it attaches to Google Games app, rather than FB. Game play is amazing and captivating though and nothing of those problems is the Devs fault directly. Would be cool if I could get compensated in game somehow though lol.
Best TD so far
by drasticbeatz.com on 2019/07/27 06:21
If your looking for a true tower defense game, this is it. No need to build towns, or buy tokens just straight TD - and its fun. I’ve been looking for a good strategy game for a while. Most just require you to frivolously buy upgrades just so you can buy more upgrades. Until a year goes buy and your still buying upgrades. But, as a fan of starcraft’s tower defense custom games, this hits the spot. I thank the developers for not going the route of “addiction psychology”, with their game, by sticking to the basics by making a game that is actually enjoyable. Five stars all day!
Fun, interesting game
by Castlewench on 2019/07/03 23:31
I’m not sure why people think they need to spend big money on this game. I spent a few small amounts on special events for the new hero and I’m currently on World 5. I do think the first 3 worlds were too easy. It was a relief to get through World 3 (long!), but overall it’s fun to play. I enjoy the new weapons available in each world and getting to know each world’s strategies and foes. It’s obvious that a lot of thought and care goes into the creation and design of each world. I’d like to see a sandbox world where I can build my own maze sometime. The spear throwers in World 3 could use some tweaking. They’re almost completely useless. Like every free game with in-game purchases, you can play to earn everything if you’re patient, or spend money if you’re not. The amount you spend directly correlates to your own patience. There is no pressure to spend. I don’t watch ads. Those are also offered tastefully and without pressure. Looking forward to more events and challenges!
Increasingly Pay 2 Win
by Starman6 on 2019/06/08 04:56
Been playing this game for a year and a half and gladly spent over $100 to support the Devs but, these guys have gotten way too greedy for my taste. Too bad as this used to be one of the best TD around. The real game here is buying Heroes and leveling them up for outrageous prices. The old heroes are nerfed before new ones are released so you feel compelled to buy them. They also offer you the chance to "Awaken" the nerfed heroes by spending even more or, months of grinding. Unlessc you do so, the paying players are so much stronger that you won't stand much of a chance in the Tournaments, which is what this game revolves around. Classic P2W.... Many of the original long term players have abandoned the game and, I'll be following soon. I'd much rather go back to playing Kingdom Rush, which this game is a cheap copy of.
All about the money!!
by Fitzxp on 2019/03/12 20:42
Should companies make money on their games? Of course, after all it’s a business but this in app purchase has taken all the fun out of games. Now companies want you to invest money and your time, which is also money, into their game only so that when the next release they can introduce a new hero and to make sure you spend more money, the weaken the hero’s you already had. This is BS and to weaken my hero’s that I paid for with my money and time should be a lawsuit. You want to add new enemies that my character need to train to kill fine but to weaken him and on top of that make the enemies stronger is way out of line. I am going back to pc games I would rather pay a onetime 60 bucks than this pay pay pay crap. No loyalty to players means no loyalty to the company.
GREAT game
by BloonGuy24 on 2019/05/13 11:32
A fantastic tower defense game that takes it to the next level. Always something to do in the game and keeps you coming back everyday. Another great thing is that as long as you put in some time you get everything you need without having to pay to play. I ended up putting in a few dollars for a hero i really wanted but i was happy to do so. And i NEVER put money into phone games lol. Will most likely put more in because i want to support the developers and keep this amazing game going. Well done guys, well done.
Money Grab
by chrisham8380 on 2019/06/08 22:45
Ok, I get it. The developers want to be able to make some money off of a game that they created...but I want everyone to think about this for a second. One of the purchase options for gems is $50 REAL MONEY, and that won’t buy you enough gems to make this game playable all the way through. You would still have to grind for MONTHS just to make progress after a certain point, or pay more money for more gems. Red Dead Redemption 2 costs $60 for the base game. I want a developer to explain to me why the hell they think this noble game is worth more than a game like that. Someone please explain that logic to me. Don’t play this game unless you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars or months of your life just to make a little progress.
Lots of continuous fun
by AndrewAdamWako1327 on 2018/12/30 03:23
I love the tower defense strategy games. Lately I have been disgusted by how greedy the game companies have become. I understand it’s a business but more than half are just pathetic. This game gives you plenty of gems throughout the levels so that you can earn awesome heroes like a game should. Whenever they handle themselves this way, it reminds me of humbleness. I’m more likely to spend money on a game I respect than a game I do not respect. This is easily the best tower defense game I’ve played and there were a lot. Thanks for the fun game. Keep it up guys.
Level 120 Campaign Bug
by Jdgmace on 2018/11/19 23:52
Loving the game. Challenging but doable once you get the hang of it. Only real problem I’ve run across is a bug that boots me out of the game when I beat level 120 in campaign mode and doesn’t save my progress. Very frustrating as I use quite a few high level power ups beating the level so I have to spend time stocking them back up. Hoping the latest patch fixes this. Haven’t tested it out yet. Playing on an iPhone, if that helps the developers isolate the issue. Other than that, highly recommend this game for those who enjoy the TD genre.
Glitch in tournaments
by Jen_n_Texas on 2019/09/24 13:52
I’ve really enjoyed this tower defense game but unfortunately there are several glitches that need addressing. The biggest glitch for me is the tournament. For some reason I stop collecting coins in the middle of the tournament which prevents me from upgrading my towers. It’s impossible to win the tournament when this happens so it appears to be rigged. Because I spend earned gems to play in the tournament, this is a serious flaw, made worse by the game developers ignoring the reported issue. I’ve reported it at least 4 times over the past several months, requesting a refund of the gems AND a refund of the real $$ I opted to spend to get more gems. I’ve had no response. I will report this to Apple as well to get a refund on all $$ spent on this game.
Great start, but too greedy to play past a month
by Jjw2244 on 2018/07/07 20:36
Game starts off incredibly strong and fun with unique levels. It’s fun to unlock champions but as soon as the first month of free bonuses are gone and you get up past gold league, the game kind of teeters out and requires $20-60 of purchases to remain competitive in tournaments. The levels are still unique but the game maker just seems greedy to have the cost to purchase champions higher than going out and purchasing a new game console and 11 games... for a mobile platform, you’d think you could advance in the game for far less than what they charge, considering they have 100 different ads running throughout the game. Overall, would maybe download for a month but uninstall after world 2.
Limited energy?
by Skinmann01 on 2019/10/23 13:59
Increased my rating from 1-star to 3 because of a developer response showing they care about making their game fun. I will play the game more and look forward to future updates that will make this game more user friendly. Why would you put an energy requirement in this game? There is no point to it other than to be annoying. Game is fun but when I am limited to how much I can play for no good reason at all then I can neither support nor play this game. I do not recommend this game unless you enjoy being frustrated by being throttled on how much you can play and when you can play.
