Great game
by icarussymmetry on 2021/12/05 17:06
This game is one of the best. Would you ever make an extended $15.99 version of the game?
So much value
by Steve Glasford on 2021/12/05 10:30
Amazing game with a ton of replay value.
Worth it
by ccfree777 on 2021/12/05 05:22
Been playing for years
Great fun

by joey pptato on 2021/11/28 14:04
If you are thinking about getting this game get it. It is the best tower defense game on the App Store and it is free.
Yes. Get it.
by i_hate_moblie_games on 2021/11/27 00:51
U owe it to urself to play it. A brilliant, hilarious, well crafted tower defense game. I was asked once, maybe twice to buy additional content, but the game is far, FAR from pay to win. This is one of the only mobile games worth getting in my opinion.
Love this game
by Bicky88 on 2021/11/27 00:20
I love this game who ever made this wish you luck and I hope you make more games like this
Classic tower defense game, very nice
by donkeys-rule on 2021/11/26 15:55
I remember playing this game when it was on armor games. This game is a classic game that many people love. Also this game has literally zero ads. So grinding is fun. IGN 10/10 would download. If you don’t play this game what are you doing with your life?
Ah, the memories.
by Nimori Kanda on 2021/11/25 05:53
I love this game. I remember first playing this game on “ArmorGames.com” way back. I was so happy to see a mobile release for this game. And when my dad saw me playing it, He soon became a fan of the game like me. Same with my brother. I hope this game gets a revamp or remaster like “Frontiers Plus” as to fix the slow frame rate and minor bugs. This version of the game is honestly my favorite.
Fun
by jeff m kelly on 2021/11/25 03:49
Fun while it lasts. I beat the game in less than 2 hours. After I beat it, it tries to save spending 9.99 for all heroes. All while having little replay value. I don’t get why you people are a high on the game when it’s s mediocre
Overall Awesome Game!
by tall de man on 2021/11/24 19:02
This game is overall really good! It has a fun gameplay and good fun mechanics. I don’t like really hard games that much and I thought I wouldn’t like the fact that this is pretty hard, but it compromises by letting you choose the difficulty for each level. I like a lot of things about this game and it’s overall super good.
Much potential, lacking some basics
by Lake Shore Dude on 2021/11/23 15:42
Speed is much too slow at times so a level can take 3x longer than necessary. Enemies will often walk through your hero and/or your support troops. If they fixed those items the game would be good but the game is old so clearly they have no intention.
Fun but occasionally seemingly impossible
by GaryMax on 2021/11/23 02:29
Great tower defense-esque game but “Normal” after the initial campaign seems to incredibly difficult where fun is lost.
Fun and challenging
by jake-pow on 2021/11/20 04:53
Love this game and this style of game. It is challenging for a while but has an end. Please fix bug in game wherein exiting (swiping up) in the game does not exit the app. I've reset my upgrades and heroes several times on accident and when the user is trying to exit, keeping the user in the app on the first swipe out is annoying.
Best game ever
by it's ggv us h on 2021/11/19 03:52
When I was young my sister would do cheer and I would have to wait till she was done with it. So I played KingdomRush and it was my favorite game and still is.
Amazing

Really fun wish you could get more heroes tho
The Greatest Tower Defense Series Out There
by Racc1738 on 2021/11/15 14:08
I first experienced the original Kingdom Rush game on the Ironhide Games website several years ago. I fondly remember the hours spent placing reinforcements, sending meteor strikes, and raging when my defenses finally fell. My classmates and I would compare our progress, racing to see who was the best at the game. Although it probably wasn’t wise of us to play during class, I am grateful for the experiences this game has brought me. The Kingdom Rush series is the greatest tower defense series on the App Store, and debatably, the best online too. It’s sequel, Kingdom Rush Frontiers, improves upon what makes this game so amazing, memorable, and loved. Thank you Ironhide, thank you for the wonderful gaming experience that is unlike any others. I will be purchasing Origins and Vengeance soon, I know I’ll love it. I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys fun, simple, and yet strategically challenging TDs. 6/5 stars.
Best strategy game
by Choir due on 2021/11/05 13:34
Still the best
It's good but I think it needs more to it
by why do l I need this on 2021/11/04 12:40
I like the way the game feels and how it plays but I think it's missing some things like an infinite mode. I would also like another tower type. Or maybe online multiplayer would be amazing. Other than this the game is great.
I’ve played this game throughout my childhood
by hunt3r08 on 2021/11/02 18:42

Sound issues
by gmmft on 2021/10/24 23:40
I love this game and remember playing it. I’m reviewing it low to get some attention. I’m having sound issues. The in game music and sound effects are not working for me. My phone sound works for everything else but this app. I really enjoy the music and character lines/ effects. Is there any way to fix this? Thank you
Only my first day😍
by Mr.Sneve on 2021/10/22 18:38
I just got it today and I can already see the adventures that lie ahead!!! It’s a challenging game that gives you excitement every time you do a level, I’m wanting to get an apple gift card so I can get another one of your games called Iron marine. I HOPE YOU NEVER STOP MAKING GREAT GAMES, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK👍🏻😍

This bad game
by PW3112 on 2021/10/16 22:31
Hi when I first played this game I loved it soooo much but then when I came up to the forsaken valley I tried and tried and tried and tried but I could not get past that level. It was so hard that when I played that round my back started to sweat and I got super angry I just can’t get past that round
Fun game
by Alphponze on 2021/10/15 22:13
Game is pretty good, and hard mode is actually challenging, but to the point where it’s still playable. Fun art style and interesting game mechanics.
Missing map
by DoubleDeadGuyAle on 2021/10/15 02:32
Seems like the map is missing it says recommended to have 50 stars to play next map but there is no way to get 50 stars

Best tower defense game ever
by Phil Swift is so powerful on 2021/09/26 19:56
I remember when I first played KingdomRush it was a flash game that I played through armor games and it was instantly my favorite flash game ever and I played through the entire game at least six times before flash got discontinued and then I found it here on the App Store I think if you’re anybody that enjoys tower defense games it’s one of the best it has a unique art style and variety of towers my favorite being the archer tower that’s made of a tree I’d suggest this game if you’ve played balloons tower defense over the years they’ve come out with more and more sequels I think they have four at the time of writing this so I haven’t gotten the fourth one yet this game also has a lot of replayability as you probably noticed since I’ve played it six times through and now about two times through on my phone

Please make the heroes free!
by A.D.J.D on 2021/09/10 13:30
As everyone with taste does, I love this classic. It’s been free for years now on the App Store, but it’s been so long since this game has been released…so long, in fact, that the original platform of its release, a flash game it was, is dead. It’s time to offer the paid heroes for free! I don’t know anyone who would pay for these now, except for old times sake, but even if people are still spending the money Ironhide should give up the cash grab for a hot sec and offer it as a courtesy to it’s oldest fans.
Hey it be cool if I get I response
by Farid 1 on 2021/09/05 15:15
This game is amazing and every other game to they have made this probably the first game I ever got on the App Store literally a master pice where you can not spend a dime to have advantage over another person and not ridiculous filled with adds the story’s great and the towers are fun and unique. Now getting my first job I can always spend the I work for to get all the cool hero’s and I wish next game is td. Boss are great, the enemies and towers are great, game on normal difficulty is still a challenge but is so fun and a great game to play during break.
Cool!

Great tower defense game!
The dark tower
by He1pBo/ on 2021/09/04 17:14
It’s too hard without buying stuff with money mostly because once you end the wizard it turns into a beast so I can’t really do anything but let it end me so if you can fix this I would appreciate it alot
It’s a great game

Frustrating once first 12 levels are done
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2021/08/22 21:33
Once you complete the main part of the game, which is the first 12 levels, it gets impossible to do any more levels. The bonus levels say that “50 stars are recommended” because they are really challenging. But once you complete the first 12, you can only get a max of 36 stars, or 3 per level. So you can’t get enough stars to complete the other levels because it’s wayyyyy too hard. I don’t understand why they would set it up this way. I really enjoyed the game before that, but now I can’t beat any more levels and it’s so frustrating.
Hmmm

by Rhkhfgjvgjbcgi on 2021/08/16 16:07
I also never have had as much fun on a mobile game as this one. No ads, insanely non intrusive micro transactions. You get the premium currency, gems, really quickly. I believe I got $3-$5 worth on my first day. The only other micro transaction are the heroes, all of which are the same or worse than the ones you get for free. This is the only mobile game where I felt indebted to the developer for making such a great game, and spent money on it out of gratitude and respect for the devs. Great work on this, wish I found it sooner.

This is a game that i played, and adored as a kid. I recently redownloaded it on my phone and I can say confidently that I didn’t just see it through rose tinted glasses, it holds up extremely strong to this day, I highly recommend this to anyone on the edge of buying it, there are no ads except for one, which is optional and it just gives you some gems, and there is nothing that you have to pay for, there are extra heroes that you can buy with money but they are optional and you can beat the game easily without them.
Super good

Good job!
by penguinking715 on 2021/07/23 22:53
I personally love this game, it’s one of the best tower defense games I’ve ever played, and I had a lot of memories playing it before. I’d get some of the other games like vengeance but I need to save up a bit more.
Inferior to other TD games
by Letsgojeepin88 on 2021/07/23 17:13
Small selection of towers, spots to place towers, and no way to fast forward. Also, I’m some levels there are magic bad guys who disable up to half of your towers on the screen if you don’t tap them quickly during the disabling process. Freaking dumb. Bloons TD6 is way better.

Love this game so much
by Depp andrus on 2021/06/30 14:32
I have been playing these games for about four years now and I finally decided to white a review, I love all the KingdomRush games so much but the first one has got to be my favorite I love all the towers and enemies. The post campaign levels are amazingly designed because they are hard but not impossible (even pandaemonium is possible somehow) I don’t know if I will ever stop playing these games because I love them so much thanks ironhide!
Great Game
by TheJoeStuff on 2021/06/28 18:50
You can enjoy about 90% of this game completely free, and there’s no ads. Other phone games will put up paywalls, or make upgrades or improvements take literal hours, days, or weeks, just to incentivize you to pay real money to speed it up. This game does none of that.
GREAT GAME

HONESTLY THE BEST MOBILE GAME EVER AN AWESOME CLASSIC

Do not download this game unless you intend on spending money on the micro transactions.
AWESOME GAME
by The Annihilator01 on 2021/06/25 18:45
GET IT U WONT REGRET IT. So many cool abilities and Easter eggs. There’s an epic theme song and quite frankly there’s like one issue some heroes cost money I bought one hero(King Denas) and he’s pretty fun. Besides that there are three non dlc heroes this game has such good strategy and I’m telling u at least try it I’m a fan
Good game, bad menu
by A fan wanting more... on 2021/06/25 12:55
Please add a feature that asks to confirm if you would like to restart. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve accidentally hit restart on a good run because I get a text or accidentally hit the pause button. Make it harder to restart please. A simple “are you sure you want to restart?” Prompt would go a long way.
Very fun
by Black Eagle157 on 2021/06/25 02:17

The Best TD Series On Mobile!
by PurelyPlatonic on 2018/06/02 19:43
Kingdom Rush is one of the most impressive games I have ever played. It combines the best aspects of various genres to create an amazing experience all around - the depth of character and fantastic story of traditional RPGs, the side-scrolling action of classic adventure games, and the tactical depth of long-lived RTS titles all wrapped up in a neatly packaged tower defense game that will keep you entertained for hours. The vast cast of characters you have at your disposal will keep you engaged throughout each different level. Different classes of heroes allow you to refine whatever style of gameplay you want, and the leveling system rewards you for investing time into these useful allies. Optional levels of difficulty provide a great sense of progression and replayability, and the entire game provides a rewarding experience for gamers of all kinds. In a world filled with pay-to-win games and ad-ridden time sinks, Kingdom Rush stands out as a stellar example of proper gaming enjoyment. Highly worth the initial investment of a few dollars, you have the choice to enjoy extra power-ups for the price of some of your time watching ads. Or you can invest in a powerful new hero to use on the battlefield - but no matter your choice, rest assured that Kingdom Rush will never force you to do so. The game is playable, and completion is perfectly achievable without spending an extra penny or watching a single ad.
Great,but a few things need to be tweaked
by Brandon1637592 on 2020/12/17 02:14
The game is peer good, the towers and the enmities have a good design and concept. Also the gameplay is smooth, no bugs, but here are some bugs that need to be changed -There need to be more rounds for some levels/the escalation doesn’t fit the round (like the ex levels after you finish the campaign need to be a little, A LITTLE! easier or there needs to be more rounds) -All of the ex levels recommend 50 stars for them, even though the max amount of stars you can get in the campaign is 36 (note you can still play them) -Some upgrades don’t seem worth the amount of gold it’s worth(like the ranger and sorcerer upgrades) -There should be a way to unlock some hero’s, not all of them but at least 3 of the premium ones, maybe after every level you get something that you can place into one premium hero of your choosing and after like 30 of those you unlock the hero (normal levels are worth 1 of these while ex levels are worth 2) -The endless mode is to hard in the beginning, maybe tone it down for a little bit -Just a nitpick of mine, but can I request a sandbox mode where you can test out strategies and towers, you don’t lost health, you have infinite gold, and you can spawn in enemies of your choosing -The encyclopedia for the enemies don’t show there weaknesses or strengths This is all, thank you for reading and possible considering my points.
A literal masterpiece.
by Spacepyrate on 2019/03/22 07:03
Kingdom rush was my first game when I had an IPhone 5s, about 6 years ago. I used to play Balloon Tower Defense 3 at school on the class computers, and when I found a similar tower defense game on the phone, I was hooked. I’ve played all of the Kingdom Rush Games, as well as Iron Marines, and I think the 5 dollars for this game is so worth it. Some levels are difficult, but not to the point of pay-to-play. I love this game series because Ironhide, unlike most game developers, really cares about its community and not the profit it makes. Honestly I’m shocked that this game series hasnt received as much attention as it deserves. But recently I feel like KR Vengeance, as cool as it is to play as the baddies and see the penultimate return of Lord Vez’nan himself, feels off. The devs are starting to go to the “pay to play” end of the spectrum, and when you have to pay for towers as well, it just seems unlike Ironhide. TLDR; never change, Ironhide. Your games are freaking amazing. :D
The Greatest Tower Defense Series Out There
by Racc1738 on 2021/11/15 14:08
I first experienced the original Kingdom Rush game on the Ironhide Games website several years ago. I fondly remember the hours spent placing reinforcements, sending meteor strikes, and raging when my defenses finally fell. My classmates and I would compare our progress, racing to see who was the best at the game. Although it probably wasn’t wise of us to play during class, I am grateful for the experiences this game has brought me. The Kingdom Rush series is the greatest tower defense series on the App Store, and debatably, the best online too. It’s sequel, Kingdom Rush Frontiers, improves upon what makes this game so amazing, memorable, and loved. Thank you Ironhide, thank you for the wonderful gaming experience that is unlike any others. I will be purchasing Origins and Vengeance soon, I know I’ll love it. I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys fun, simple, and yet strategically challenging TDs. 6/5 stars.
Best tower defense game ever
by Phil Swift is so powerful on 2021/09/26 19:56
I remember when I first played KingdomRush it was a flash game that I played through armor games and it was instantly my favorite flash game ever and I played through the entire game at least six times before flash got discontinued and then I found it here on the App Store I think if you’re anybody that enjoys tower defense games it’s one of the best it has a unique art style and variety of towers my favorite being the archer tower that’s made of a tree I’d suggest this game if you’ve played balloons tower defense over the years they’ve come out with more and more sequels I think they have four at the time of writing this so I haven’t gotten the fourth one yet this game also has a lot of replayability as you probably noticed since I’ve played it six times through and now about two times through on my phone
Amazing game for free.
by Henry Backus on 2021/03/24 01:05
This game has so much stuff you can do and is so long that it is amazing that it’s still free. Sure, some hero’s are locked behind paywalls, but even without buying anything it’s still entirely possible to beat the game while still having a ton of fun and not spending money. unlike other free games where it either becomes a nuisance to beat after a certain pint or is nearly impossible to beat without spending money, this game lets you do almost everything you want without having to spend money. An amazing game in general, especially for free. Would definitely recommend. Only thing that makes it annoying for some people is it is pretty difficult if you don’t have a strategy, but if you know what to do, this is the best free mobile tower defense you can find.
This could be the best mobile game I ever played
by H20Hydra on 2020/12/19 01:29
I’ve been playing this game for around two days and it’s absolutely amazing it would be so incredible if they could add a sandbox mode were you could add any tower and any enemy that you want that would make the game 100 times more better so then not every two seconds I need to start playing one of the missions but overall this game is super fun you have all these towers and all these enemies they definitely shouldUpdate the game more often so then people will start playing in more they should also add it on various different platforms but overall this game is super fun but we need a sandbox mode and there should also be missions and for those missions that you complete you get a new hero that would be amazing but overall this game is really good.
Fire!!!!!
by DarkGhost 01 on 2020/11/19 04:47
I’ve played all the Kingdom Rush games with the exception of Vengeance, they’re all more or less fun and I wouldn’t rate any of them less than 4 stars. But this one is still the best, I like the towers better, I like the bonus missions better (although Frontiers is a close second in that regard) the enemies are better, the maps and their exclusive abilities are better, basically although this is a fairly old game, it’s arguably one of the best, it’s insanely fun and you can play it offline which is pretty good when you’re travelling. If you are still in doubt let me tell you, you don’t need to spend a penny to have fun or make progress, it’s always a fun game and feels like a brand new experience every time I start the campaign again. Get it, you won’t regret it.
The ONLY Good Game on Mobile
by Some_Holy_Ferns on 2020/04/17 02:29
So many mobile games these days are trashy monetization filled garbage festivals designed for mentally damaged giraffes. HOWEVER, the entire Kingdom Rush series is the best thing to ever happen to mobile gaming. Some of my best memories are from playing the Kingdom Rush games and 12 year old me staying up late for hours on end just trying to beat a particularly difficult level. Folks, if you haven’t checked out this absolute beauty of a series, please do. Whoever is making these games deserves to live long and prosper and maybe became president (collectively) some day I don’t know that’d be pretty awesome. 11/10 best mobile game ever and I can’t emphasize that enough.
...WHAT HOW AM I DEAD
by troubleinc JR on 2021/06/02 18:56
The rotten forest is so hard how do you aaaaggghhh. All in all I’ve been playing this game for a long time and no matter what I enjoy it. EXCEPT WHEN THE SOLDIERS DONT ATTACK. Sorry just mad cause I just tried rotten forest for like the hundredth time and failed... that place is different and more difficult then the others so please add some more ease. Maybe remove half of the husks since they don’t drop money and they’re just tanks Edit: make an achievement called : “...who are you?” Description: get to round 100 on veteran mode on infinite mode and another achievement called: “impossible you’re suppose to be dead” Description: get to round 1000 on veteran mode on infinite mode
Amazing Game
by SashimiMole on 2019/11/28 02:33
This is by far the best game app I have on my phone. I was introduced to this game by my brother, who suggested that I download it before a very long cross country flight. I’m so glad I did! It’s the only game I can play in “Airplane Mode”, which is a great feature for me. The game itself is interesting and fun. Instead of being some crappy turn based money grab, it’s a real game you can play all the way through. Just like the old console days. The animations and soundtrack are wonderful. And it is really challenging, without being impossible. Thanks for the best phone game ever you guys! Keep these amazingly fun games coming 😊
The best out there in its class unfortunately
by Chubbybobeziek on 2018/06/15 17:59
I love this game. It’s dynamite and dynamic. It has all I want minus some small adjustments that so far in the genre/type it’s in the forefront of. I want more games like this with better micro animations and funnier bad guys. I was engaged in it extremely until i beat the main campaign. After that the leveling and gameplay kinda flattened out. More maps please. Weirder and more varied bosses and challenges! Just also give us a better range of free champs. Feel freee to keep the pay for ones OP but at least give us half or more what the PC version has for variance and upgrades. Anyway solid game needs more maps ttyl <3
Great game, but sized all wrong on iPad?
by hGi3l42 on 2019/02/15 23:10
I’ve been playing Kingdom Rush for a long time, and always download it again with each new device. And it’s worked great all along... until now. The latest version on my 2018 iPad 9.7” acts like it’s only sized for iPhone, and the game play screen doesn’t fit the available screen space. What’s worse, the game play area is bigger than the window, so it’s impossible to see both where the troops enter and where they’re trying to go without scrolling around during the game. This is *not* ideal. If the game had always been this way, that’d be one thing, but it wasn’t. If it used to be possible to fit the game window to the screen size on iPad, why isn’t it now? Hopefully this can be changed in a future version.
Flawless.
by GabeN (JK) on 2020/03/23 17:04
I had a hard time finding something bad about this game. I played this in on my iPad and I got hooked quickly. This game brings an intriguing story, fun gameplay and lots of different possible strategies, with decent difficulty as well. When I was done with the campaign, I thought it might get boring, but no, many different side stories with separate paths popped up. This game is far from pay to win. In fact, All you can buy are some gems or heroes, and gems can only be used for one-time use items, and all the levels are possible without them. I beat all the stages with starter hero, and you really don’t need the paid ones. My only problems were one, the iron fist badge on certain stages were way easier to get than the heroic, which should be vice versa. Second, when I use the big boy, the plane has to fly on screen to drop it, and you can lose during that time and have the item go to waste. This is my favorite game of all time. Thank you, Ironhide.
Good but some things to change
by 7262622' on 2021/04/10 13:15
The game is good smooth storyline but the extra levels can be really tricky I tried few of them they are really hard they need to be a little bit easier I have trouble beating the extra levels and for me there is a bug where here the music or the voices of the towers I really love how you can watch a add for 100 gems and overall it is a great game the other games that you make cost money and I don’t really like that and the game has great deals for heroes I love when the final boss turns into a giant demon the game is very good 10/10 REALLY GOOD GAME
Love this game, but they could improve the way it’s played on iPhones
by Vic3437 on 2018/03/07 13:12
Let me start out by saying I five starred this game for the iPad. It takes up a lot of memory because it doesn’t rely on WiFi or data, but it’s worth it! But on the iPhone, you can not see the whole map and that impacts your play. A zoom feature would help. Most importantly, when you add your support troops, if you touch the screen the least bit off you can restart the game!! This is a game that once you are in it and have your rhythm going you know what your next step is, so your fingers are already going. I’ve accidentally re-started my game so many times I’m ready to delete this.. . If they could fix that one thing I would five star this for iPhone also.
Hilariously Addictive
by 10pounds on 2021/02/19 16:57
Fun little game! The more you play the more you want to play. It’s the only game I play, that I laugh just as much as when I lose as when I win. It’s hilarious when I get overrun by a horde of monsters. Wish the entire scene was visible on my iPad but that just a minor inconvenience. Wish there were some instructions I could read so I’d understand all of the symbols and icons. I suppose that the game’s teachable purpose (figure it out as you go and don’t get frustrated, just have fun). This game has definitely helped me to conquer cabin fever.
Really Not A Good App
by guy guy binks on 2021/02/04 21:33
The gameplay is boring and unoriginal (I understand that is the charm but come on, create something new after 12yrs). The interface during gameplay is slow to react and hard to manipulate, which is annoying given that those are the only controls. There are no options to adjust control settings (opacity, size, color etc.) so you’re stuck with tiny little buttons that aren’t very responsive. Small hiccups and glitches when using abilities create artificial difficulty which limits your adaptability in certain situation (ie. When u need reinforcements in a particular place on the board at the right exact time). Overall there are many tower defense style apps are absolutely superior in nearly every way, don’t waste your time on this app lol.
Hey it be cool if I get I response
by Farid 1 on 2021/09/05 15:15
This game is amazing and every other game to they have made this probably the first game I ever got on the App Store literally a master pice where you can not spend a dime to have advantage over another person and not ridiculous filled with adds the story’s great and the towers are fun and unique. Now getting my first job I can always spend the I work for to get all the cool hero’s and I wish next game is td. Boss are great, the enemies and towers are great, game on normal difficulty is still a challenge but is so fun and a great game to play during break.
I never write reviews
by Rhkhfgjvgjbcgi on 2021/08/16 16:07
I also never have had as much fun on a mobile game as this one. No ads, insanely non intrusive micro transactions. You get the premium currency, gems, really quickly. I believe I got $3-$5 worth on my first day. The only other micro transaction are the heroes, all of which are the same or worse than the ones you get for free. This is the only mobile game where I felt indebted to the developer for making such a great game, and spent money on it out of gratitude and respect for the devs. Great work on this, wish I found it sooner.
Awesome game!
by WhoMI???????? on 2021/07/24 18:43
This is a game that i played, and adored as a kid. I recently redownloaded it on my phone and I can say confidently that I didn’t just see it through rose tinted glasses, it holds up extremely strong to this day, I highly recommend this to anyone on the edge of buying it, there are no ads except for one, which is optional and it just gives you some gems, and there is nothing that you have to pay for, there are extra heroes that you can buy with money but they are optional and you can beat the game easily without them.
Good game but glitches
by plz change ads on 2019/06/13 07:14
Great game to play in your free time and also requires a good amount of strategy and skill to play. The gem system is nice too making the extra powers not to hard to get and removes the pay to win aspect of the game. The problem is the glitch where when you tap the reinforcement button it can bring up the pause button and if you are placing the troops in the middle of your screen you will probably restart the level or quit is which is pretty frustrating especially when near the end of a hard level. Other than that the game is great.
Perfect game
by LincolnsMine on 2019/07/22 22:31
alright, I’ve played Kingdom rush and KingdomRush frontiers for around 3 years. I find the original the most difficult one, and the extra, non-campaign levels are an added challenge. I love the free heroes, the special buildings, and all of the tower upgrades. I’d like even more levels and a whole new range of enemies, but I know that takes time and ends up in the next game. I hated the few KR Origin levels, definitely not worth the cost of the game. The first two provide plenty of a challenge, and I’m very satisfied with them.
KingdomRush
by Hudson Spencer on 2020/04/27 13:57
This game is all out fun to play if you’re good at it. It’s fun, and it is not too hard to play so it’s good for beginners to try. If you complete the story mode you don’t have to worry because there are so many other levels that you can play to test your skills and you will have a harder time doing that. If you do somehow completely finish the game, consider playing it’s counterpart KingdomRush frontiers which is the hardest game in the series of 4. These games are fun and will keep you playing for quite a while!
Please make the heroes free!
by A.D.J.D on 2021/09/10 13:30
As everyone with taste does, I love this classic. It’s been free for years now on the App Store, but it’s been so long since this game has been released…so long, in fact, that the original platform of its release, a flash game it was, is dead. It’s time to offer the paid heroes for free! I don’t know anyone who would pay for these now, except for old times sake, but even if people are still spending the money Ironhide should give up the cash grab for a hot sec and offer it as a courtesy to it’s oldest fans.
Love this game so much
by Depp andrus on 2021/06/30 14:32
I have been playing these games for about four years now and I finally decided to white a review, I love all the KingdomRush games so much but the first one has got to be my favorite I love all the towers and enemies. The post campaign levels are amazingly designed because they are hard but not impossible (even pandaemonium is possible somehow) I don’t know if I will ever stop playing these games because I love them so much thanks ironhide!
Frustrating once first 12 levels are done
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2021/08/22 21:33
Once you complete the main part of the game, which is the first 12 levels, it gets impossible to do any more levels. The bonus levels say that “50 stars are recommended” because they are really challenging. But once you complete the first 12, you can only get a max of 36 stars, or 3 per level. So you can’t get enough stars to complete the other levels because it’s wayyyyy too hard. I don’t understand why they would set it up this way. I really enjoyed the game before that, but now I can’t beat any more levels and it’s so frustrating.
I used to love this game but the bugs are too frustrating now
by Dwalthour on 2018/03/27 17:10
I’ve played this game for years and always loved it, but now, on my iPhone 8, every so often when I press the reinforcements button I instead get the pause dialog. If I’m trying to place my reinforcements quickly, I will find that I am pressing the quit button instead and my game is suddenly over. This is very frustrating and happens quite regularly. At first, I thought that my other hand was accidentally brushing the pause button, but I have since become very careful about where my right hand is position and found that it still happens. I hope this bug gets fixed in a release soon as it is killing my enjoyment of the game.
Let me back!!!!!
by Whuzzup105 on 2018/07/13 02:46
I bought this game awhile back and I was hoping to relive some memories when I click the I cloud thing a ma bob and I realize it’s not able to redownload this app. I was close to furious. I paid for the this game right when it came out on the App Store yet I’m not able to replay it? I really hope you guys see this cause I loved this game so much. It got me caught on for hours. This game is very strategy. I don’t think it’s possible to play to win? I’m not so sure. But anyways please let me back in on thus game and please ironhide let me back in. Please see this.
One complaint
by rckt83 on 2020/08/17 14:34
Hi I just have one complaint and that is that Z champions and dark archers are just like standing back and my soldiers can’t reach them so I have to move them around and it’s just kind of annoying. Otherwise I think that the game is perfect. I hope that you might increase the range of attack for the Barricks because otherwise the dark archer is in champions just head back and I have to move my soldiers and heroes so yeah. Thank you
If you like Pay-To-Win this game is for you
by Bed&Breakfest on 2018/07/02 08:50
Pros: - Fun, creative, and overall well done graphics -Initial Campaign is really enjoyable and engaging experience -The in-game dialogue is a nice small detail Cons -Addition of shop items that grant players new abilities negatively changes the direction of the original game from strategy to how much money do I have to spend in order to beat this level -Post-Campaign is not nearly as enjoyable or engaging experience as the initial campaign, as enemies/waves seemed to be designed with the shop items in mind and part of the strategy -the behaviors of heros seems largely inconsistent and unreliable in that heros won’t default to attacking any enemies that walk near or past them OVERALL: Having originally played this game on the computer in my youth, this game seems to have lost sight of what made it charming from its initial release, and with the addition of pay-to-play features takes away from the quality and overall satisfaction with playing this particular game.
Best tower defense game ever
by Nexius18 on 2021/04/20 19:34
Best game ever, I love the strategy you have to use it win a specific battle, but I wish they could add a third special ability like freezing a hand full of units on the screen, or a poison spell that weaken enemy units health. It would also be cool if they cloud add a online multiplayer, which two people will try to survive more waves than the other person and if you win you get about 500 gems. All in all I think this is a good game
Reliving old memories
by PhantomWarp on 2019/12/22 22:15
I remember when I was in elementary (I think) I saw this game on the computer in some website like armor games or max games. I loved the game and would play it everyday until I finished the game. Around middle school I couldn’t find the game anymore and I couldn’t remember the name. Now in college and I saw this in my App Store and I couldn’t believe my eyes! It was still just as good as I remembered it!!! Thank you for the amazing game and good memories!
Used to be a great game
by AG-SiLveR on 2020/11/11 12:25
If you’re using this on an iPad or other device that has the correct screen size to display the full playing field - you’re fine. 5 star game. However the narrow display of my iPhone X means I have to scroll the screen to see everything. This basically makes it near impossible to play the game at the highest capability because you can see all the enemies on the field. They should have adapted it for screen sizes. Boo. It used to be my favorite tower defense game on my iPad but now on my phone it’s nowhere near as good.
Kingdom Rush
by Hdkakebsozosbdkzosnrkso on 2019/08/23 20:27
I’ve been playing this game for about a decade or so (since it was first on their “armorgames” website) and I still never get tired of this game. They brought the exact same feel from the computer to iOS and yet made it highly compatible with a new touch system. The other installments of the game are also great, and I plan on playing them all for many years to come. Great game!
Great game but has some annoying issues
by Jack1234567890jsje on 2021/04/25 15:25
Really fun, challenging TD game. But it has one big thing the developers really need to fix: Games don’t save, so if you exit the app, even if you are one wave away from finishing a level, you will lose all of your progress and there is no option to “resume game”. This can be super frustrating. It has happened a handful of times and every time it happens and I feel more motivated to delete the game each time it happens. With that issue fixed, this game would be amazing
5 stars
by TheDreadedScythe on 2019/05/28 13:18
This game can be difficult if you’ve never played any tower defense games but even then it’s a different feel to the game. This game starts off slow but as soon as the basics have been laid down the heat is instantly turned up. Soon you’ll have to start replacing towers because a group of incoming enemies have armor. There are several variables and you will need to figure them all out.
Extremely fun and strategic
by benny boye on 2019/04/12 19:34
Kingdom rush is a ton of fun and takes a good bit of critical thinking to figure out how the battle will unfold. Different towers have different uses that all need to be considered based on the map and the enemies. Overall, it is a great game for passing the time and a must have if you like killing things in a methodical and well thought out way. Or you could just spam bombardiers and that works just fine. 💣
Not a cash grab
by sportyspy8498 on 2021/05/04 21:27
People complain about not completing the game without spending money well they are wrong and many tutorials outside the game are also wrong I have been able to complete the game on the hardest level without using any gems or spending a dime. Love the game and love all the other games from this developer. One recommendation I hope you add in later games, more fun little Easter eggs
Redundant Review
by Cole Magnus on 2018/07/28 02:30
What can I say that several others haven’t already before me? I remember seeing this game on Armor Games’ popular list. I thought to myself, “eh, what is this? It looks whack.” Then I tried it. Once I did I quickly become captivated by the fun gameplay and charming art style. This was a fun game I got to enjoy for 0.00$ no less. Ok what I’m trying to say is that it’s great and totally worth it. It can be as hard or as easy as you want it. Yay.
AWESOME GAME! Just really hard
by Bruhbru11 on 2021/03/09 01:40
It’s a really great game but the towers are very hard to upgrade, making any maps harder to beat. Any high defense troops usually ALWAYS make it to your side and you lose hearts. The only fun part, is BLOWING UP DEM LOW LEVEL TROOPS! It’s awesome seeing random troops blowing up in this game! Anyways, I hope you read this and maybe make it easier to progress. Maybe make tower upgrades easier? 🤔
Fantastic
by Kerby53 on 2021/05/30 09:20
This is one of the first games I got for iPhone way back in the day. I still come back and replay it, as well as the rest of the series. I could go into great detail about how the flavor inspired me, but you’d probably care much more about the gameplay, which is also stellar. I’m doing another kingdom rush series run for the 10th+ time, and it holds up. Play this game.
My all time fav
by cwinter84 on 2018/07/30 23:22
Kingdom Rush has continued to entertain me for years. They have taken the tower defense concept and made it into an easy to learn but hard to master game. I continue to find myself replaying levels and have still yet to 100% complete the game. Unlike other games, I have never gotten bored with this game. It’s best feature is it is not at all a pay to win game. There are in game purchases but are entirely optional. A+ game.
I used to like it...
by gabethedog360noscope on 2020/07/30 20:47
I’m still leaving five stars because there’s only one issue and it may just be me. For me when I open the game it kicks me out after five seconds. Now I’m on iPhone 6+ so does it not works on my phone or does it work and my phone is acting up and I need to fix it. Please tell me I love this game and I want to finish it so please let me know.
Best mobile game ever
by Duelz55 on 2017/09/28 23:07
Let me start off by saying, I am an AVID gamer. PC, console, mobile, I play them all... A LOT! I don't ever write reviews. Especially positive ones. But this game is gold! It's very hard to find a game that is as polished as Kingdom Rush. The game offers insane difficulty levels for those that want a challenge, with extremely fun, yet easy to pick up, gameplay! I've recommended this game to all my friends, and each one has fallen in love as well! Kudos to the devs. (My only complaint is the gem system. I don't like that you can essentially buy your way to a 3 star victory. But you can always just do as I do, and ignore the shop all together. It makes for a true challenge, but it's doable!)
Awesome
by Review_Critic on 2017/11/20 15:55
WARNING: if you hate or are allergic to endless amounts of fun then this game isn't for you. It's easy to pick up fun to play, easy at first but can get crazy hard later on for people who want a challenge. If you aren't ready for the harder levels you can replay any previous level and even make those levels harder than before. All in all it's amazing.
Great game!
by is this a good enough nickname on 2020/04/12 00:49
This is my go to game This game is sooo extensive I can play this game for hours and not get bored. it is quite frankly the best tower defense game I’ve ever played. The gameplay is so smooth and enjoyable. It also has little side story’s and achievements witch allows the player to go at his/her friends own pace for maximum enjoyability if you are considering getting this game TOTALLY DO IT!!!
GET THIS GAME
by Tkap18:) on 2021/03/29 19:48
This is one of bit the best mobile game I ever played, if you haven’t played this you should. It is one of the most iconic mobile games the sounds are great the details for a mobile game are very well done and it’s a simple, fun but difficult game that is all around great and is one of the best games I ever played including out of Xbox ps4 and pc
Not Fun Any More
by Really Not Amused on 2018/07/08 05:53
The pay-to-win aspect of the game really made this game go downhill. Some levels and enemies are simply so overwhelmingly powerful and frustrating (like the demon legions which clones itself and you soon have exponentially more enemies) that it’s very nearly impossible to win with just strategy and practice. In the end, if you want to win you have to pay for items or heroes. But what’s the fun in that? The overwhelming enemies are just uncreative and frustrating instead of being something that you can take time to figure out.
