Default Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia (By Gimka Entertainment) [Universal]




Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Defender Chronicles series spins the defense genre in a new direction by implementing an innovative vertical view combined with RPG elements!

Defender Chronicles II brings players back to the fantastical land of Athelia in this sequel to the award-winning vertical defense game from 2009. Defenders will be tasked once again with defending the Empire from the merciless Orc Hordes, the supernatural Forsaken, and the shadowy Covenant cult.

Returning to the glorious days of epic battle, players will take on the role of one of four unique heroes, each with their own unique abilities, and combine forces with Empire troops to survive endless waves of enemies. Masterful tacticians will collect artifacts to assist them on their quest to uphold the land and guide troops to effectively defeat deadly hordes to restore peace to the land

• Enroll to Be a Hero: Players can choose from four playable heroes, each with six distinct skills and eight unique abilities, to garrison the Empire in a variety of ways. Both heroes from the previous Defender Chronicles, the General (warrior) and Melwen (mage), will make their return, alongside newcomers Lovell (archer), the Athelian princess, and Elwyn (priest), the previous king of Athelia.

• Lead the Battalion: With up to 24 different unit types for players to command, Athelia defenders will enlist recruits, upgrade their ranks, and employ their troops to defeat enemies.

• Be Adventurous: With five different game modes and five difficulty levels available, Defender Chronicles II will challenge even the most veteran strategist while providing plenty of reasons to continue playing.

• Get Digging Already: Players can search for and collect hundreds of new artifacts to assist them in unlocking new levels, upgrades, and other features!

• Enhanced Gaming Experience: With all new graphics, comics, soundtracks, and voice-overs, Defender Chronicles II updates the series and aims to provide rookies and fans alike with a refreshed and polished look.

• Start Socializing: Game Center support means players will have the chance to topple their friends on the leaderboards. Defenders can also issue challenges in-game via email.

• It’s Only the Beginning: Defender Chronicles II will include a massive amount of content at launch, but there are plans to add even more! Players can expect to see future updates, which will include additional unit types and quests.

Definitely a must-insta-buy for me.

This is the first time I feel I should be paying more than $3. I will put the same time into this as some put into Skyrim, and is worth so much more. If you have an idevice, buy this. DC1 was my #1 game for over a year.

Again, buy this! Only wish I could have had
It sooner! The devolpers are amazing, they read and listen to users on here and there forums. They added so much content to the first, and know try will follow suite. You can tell they make these out of passion, not profit.

Also, there is IAP, but is 100% optional. From the first, a ton of people asked for IAP to support the devs more with how much they put into the game. They have said this will be the same and is beatable without paying any real money.

Can't wait!

Yep, this will be amazing.

I'll be buying all the IAP to support the developer, they deserve it.

Dissenting voice...based on the first one and the previews, this will be a good rpg/tower defense game, but I dont see it as genre expanding, and if you have never enjoyed a rpg/tower defense game, dont get this one. Yes, the approach to the levels is different, and yes the rpg elements are much better done than the norm, but that may not be enough if you have never liked the genre at all.

I enjoyed the first one and plan to get the game, just saying that the impression of universal love could be misinterpreted by some.

The thing is, Diablo 3 is overshadowing everything right now. The 2 weeks period in-between should probably have been 2 months, but such is life - But can only agree; $2.99 is a very small price to pay for hundreds of hours of gameplay.

And true enough: During beta testing only two members from our test group actually had access to the IAP items. They ARE completely optional, You do not NEED them to get the FULL DC2 game experience. They are there for a bit of extra fun, should you want it, nothing more.

There's just so much good to say about this title. And I'm sure many of us will say it, in forum posts and front page reviews. So for now, before I start leaking praise like a beer barrel shot through by so may ranger arrows, I will focus on the one thing that took me by surprise:

If this works the way I imagine it, it sounds like a terrific addition to the game. Gimka, is there any chance we'll eventually be able to issue these challenges via DC2/GameCenter as well, with accompanying push notifications?

Using mail has many advantages, but it also shuts us out of being able to challenge most of our GC friends, of which most of us don't know email adresses and have built up quite a list (in particular of TouchArcade pals).

Excellent game. Played the first one and loved it. Iap isn't necessary but I've partaken just to make it a little more fun. If it isn't your cup of tea then don't buy, but to slag off a game that has iap bu doesn't require it is puerile. Keep up the good work lads. Looking forward to the updates.
