Your tutorial in Defenders of Ardania is given by someone doing their best Sean Connery impersonation, mildly amusing at first, grating and irresponsible design at the worst. Tiresome suits it too, Ardania's cheap, dime novel fantasy realm fitted...

International Review By GameCaptain on 71

Nein, ist kein schlechtes Spiel, es scheitert nur an der Vielzahl seiner Möglichkeiten. Da Potenzial zum ganz großen Wurf wäre da gewesen, aber vieles bleibt auf der Strecke: Es gibt jeweils nur eine Handvoll Türme, Truppen oder Zaubersprüche,...

Weil Tower-Defense-Games so herrlich zugänglich sind und sich auch gerne unterwegs spielen lassen, geht der aktuelle Siegeszug des Genres, bei dem durch geschicktes Platzieren von Abwehrstellungen Wellen von Angreifern zurückgeschlagen werden müssen,...
