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.

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).

Ah. I was hoping it meant asynchronous challenges, Piyo Blocks 2-style ("Here's my score on this particular level. You play it, and the game tells us whoever achieved the highest score, possibly even saving wins and losses to a profile system").

Perhaps something to consider for a rainy day when there is nothing else left to code It allows a game to build a semi-competitive online community without ever implementing online multiplayer

Since you seem to enjoy teh strategy, peek a sneak at Empire of the Eclipse tonight as well. 4X in an online environment, something I've been daydreaming about since I first pushed my first settler wagon across the pixelated fields in Civ 1.

But yeah, for one of the very few times ever (last time was Aquaria), I am jealous of iPad users and their new-fangled, shiny Autumn Dynasty. A dang good thing DC2 is not an iPad exclusive, otherwise not even Empire of the Eclipse would have been enough to console me tonight
