    So i cant make a 100% accurate review of the game, but when i opened the game there is an ad banner that actually blocks so much that i dont know what the buttons at the bottom do. Will change review if they fix this, seems like a cool game but i cant play until this is fixed. Samsung galaxy s8+. Full Review

    I'm so sad I have to give this game lower than five stars. Why does it not save your progress on your Play Games account? I recently had to reset my phone and I lost all progress except the gem purchases. I didn't play much I only finished 20 maps with the relics but now I'm discouraged to play more knowing it might happen again. Please consider data backup on Play Games like some other games..

    It's not that hard to make a good tower defense game. But as far as I can tell these are the first guys to do one right for mobile. Encompassing all elements of types of grades and mazing, difficulty scales beautifully and there's a freemium option for noobs. Well rounded and recommended Full Review

    Best TD-game I've played so far. Would have liked to be able prioritise enemies to target (ie strongest, closest ect) and that earth has a tiny chance of stun without upgrades. Some enemies could also have looked more beautiful. Full Review

    Edit: ok, got it. I should be clearer, the "relic" tiles look a look like the normal unbreakable ones. Cannot collect relics. The encyclopedia doesn't help to know HOW to collect them. I assumed you had to build a turret on top of relic parts, but this never got me any. Full Review

    This is a great game. Graphics are a little lacking, but the gameplay makes up for it. There's a lot of content right off the bat as well. It could use a bit more difficulty, but it's still ok. Full Review

    Fun until it gets gimmicky. Too many TD games suffer from that problem. Sad to see this is one. Invisible enemies, immunity to traps, enemies that destroy your towers...there are ways to make a game difficult without cheap gimmicks. And the ooze enemies are totally overpowered. Forced to use diamonds on almost every level in Chapter 4. When I ran out, I uninstalled. I'm not going to pay to win. Full Review

    Ads and micro transactions are present but unobtrusive. Single player is quite enjoyable, I'm at the end of chapter 2. I like watching the defeated enemies fall down the shaft, bouncing off their still climbing cohorts! Full Review

    Single player is great. Survival is extremely disappointing. You can only get a few waves in before the green bastards come in and destroy all your towers. If you survive them you have nothing left for the next wave. Full Review

    Great game! It's difficult to find those nowadays. However, after the first 2 worlds/pages it gets pretty stagnant. I wish there were more upgrades. I'm bored. :( Full Review

    This is a brilliant little tower defence game. Teaches you at a good pace and doesn't overwhelme yet is complicated enough to keep your interest throughout each new level. Only gripe is the flashing ads at the bottom, it wouldn't be so bad if they were static but the flashing is very distracting. Full Review

    This is a pretty fun game with some originally, which is hard to do in this genre. The gameplay is fairly unique too, with some nice little touches such as being able to link turrets to boost their abilities. If I had one grumble, it's that the ads at the bottom of the screen cause the game to stutter on my Nexus 6P, so I'd prefer it if they were less intrusive. Full Review

    Used to love this game. The new ad strip in-game has totally ruined gameplay and frame rate. Leas than 5 fps now. Way to ruin a good game just so you can line your pockets a bit more! Full Review

    Gameplay is fun, but the bottom banner ads lag the game so badly every time they change it is almost unplayable. At least 75% of the time it lags like mad as the ad refreshes. Would rate higher and reinstall if this situation were fixed. Full Review

    A good tower defence game.Had a good time with this for a while. Like the digging twist of gameplay. Only the ads are bit too much in your face and later on the game forces to buy diamonds cause it gets impossible. Full Review

    Fun. Surprisingly addictive. Pitting upgrades heavily into one type of tower early can make the later levels more challenging when new enemies come out that are immune/resistant to certain towers. Full Review

    Best tower defence game I've played. Devs: An undo button would be nice (for single silly placement mistakes), and how about a level editor? Editor could be free to use, but pay a small fee to enable level sharing. Full Review

    Nice game, kinda between puzzle and tower defense games. However the design is really awful and adds inside the game are often making it sluggish. Full Review

    Very good take on TD genre. Just some levels feel a bit unbalanced, requiring you to play very specific strategies to get a decent rating (or using cash). Full Review

    Robbie Adams Published date: October 23, 2017

    TWO major major major flaws: You don't have the ability to UPGRADE THE TOWERS YOU WANT AND WHEN YOU WANT and this KILLS THE GAME ESPECIALLY ON CHAPTER 4. HUGE FLAW! And then you have that AD BANNER KILLING FRAME RATES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN... Why the developer created this method is beyond me. Oh wait... I know why. It kills performance so bad that you HAVE to pay to get rid of it in order to even play the game. However this biggest flaw is the wait times to upgrade your towers and you cannot even choose the ones you want to upgrade moreover the game is so frekn cheap that your upgrade time increases as your close to death LOL What a joke this game is. ONE STAR and if I could go lower I would just for being such a sneaky, cheap game. Full Review

    Allow digging and support 8 directions! Playable Area too small. Castle concept is babying the player. Xp to upgrade is bogus and just another obstacle to playability! Full Review

    Good td game and shows details for what an upgrade cost and what it does. It gets harder and you have to continuously change strategies for each page of challenges. I would recommend. Full Review

    Great TD game. Love having some control over pathing. Pay to win is not in your face; I have spent a single premium currency and u get tons of it just for playing the game - it's just well-balanced as is. Full Review

    Hello, I love the game, just wanted to let you know : on Galaxy S8, the bottom of the screen keeps the image from the previous scene. It doesn't alter the gameplay of course but it doesn't look good :p Edit : fixed, thanks a lot! Full Review

    Eric Ongerth Published date: July 20, 2017

    Best mobile phone game I've played. Challenging in the best way: makes you think hard and come up with new strategies to get past the levels that you can't master at first. It's great how sometimes you can just barely pass a level, but then come back to the same level and improve your performance to earn upgrades that may be just enough to help you beat other levels that you could not pass before. Also the ability to endlessly, freely reconfigure your upgrades any time (rebuild skill trees to highlight different strengths, but always keeping the same number of skill points you've earned so far) adds another dimension of strategy that keeps level after level of "only" different enemies and layout from getting old too quickly. I have played other far more complex games than this, such as all the city/empire builder/army games, and honestly I have more fun with just simple tower defense. I know I'll run out of levels and get over it, but even so, this is the best example of its type. Very well made. Full Review

    I'm really enjoying this game, it is a different style of tower defence which is nice as they are generally very similar, also what I like is that you can upgrade your towers out of game which means that if you don't get full stars the first time you play through you can get stronger and go back and play it again to get full Full Review

    A delicious little Tower Defense. Ads are unobtrusive, and gameplay is everything one would expect of a TD, while the idea of digging down lends an interesting twist to building your own minion path. Thanks for the game! Full Review

    Samrparker 12 Published date: December 23, 2017

    This game has an incredibly interesting concept. Instead of your average TD paths, you get to dig your own path while trying to strategically path everything out to get the most build space. (It's actually not very difficult) 5/5! Full Review
