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.

It's working for me. The new map is ridiculously hard though, so if you have anyone at Legend, be prepared for them to fall back below Legend for a while...

(Or maybe I'm just missing something...I've only tried it with Lovell.)

Some enemies are immune to burning, so it doesn't affect them at all or stop them healing. Some other enemies can cast healing spells, I don't think burning stops them casting those either.

i am talking about enemies which get the sign, so they affected by that. well and if casting healing spells works than description of lizards ability should be changed.

Gimka, are there any plans for a traditional RPG comparison interface? Simply, another equipment info windows that pops up below the window for the currently tapped item, showing the stats of whatever item is equipped in the relevant slot (or slots, for the accesories).

If you want to make it really helpful and convenient , add little arrows next to every stat in the window for the unequipped item, indicating whether the stat is an improvement or reduction (along the lines of green upwards arrows for the former, red downwards for the latter, but tailored to the DC2 graphical style).

(An alternative would be to expand the info pop-ups for items and simply display the stats of the equipped item in brackets next to the stats of the unequipped, color-coded for improvement or reduction.)

If we still want to get the BBQ but haven't reached the required reputation level should we update the game?

Hi folks,

Sorry, it has been a while. I have been occupied with fixing the issue with 1.0.1. v1.1 is up now!

Eev, some enemy units carry health potions and will heal themselves with those regardless if you use the lizardmen or not. Though, if you use high dps units, like Wizards, they sometime can kill those enemies immediately without giving them the chance to use the potions.

We had discussed about adding a refresh button to the shop but the rest of the team doesnt agree. We will improve the shop later on, but not by adding a refresh button.

Ayjona, no plan yet. We are currently focusing on adding more maps, enemies and more urgent features first, like iCloud. But thats a good idea and well consider it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Masmo, you can update the game. BBQ will still be there as long as you are using the saved file from v1.0 or v1.0.1.

Thanks for playing!

fair enough with these lizards, but still it might be good idea to give another description to this ability because using healing potions is kind of healing too. yes somehow to improve the shop would be great. i mean, constantly refreshing shop by the way it is now is not that fun. it is just like meaningless pressing the same buttons again and again. especially because even with the new update only the last items are somehow interesting for legend difficulty maps.

also another question and it's about aiming, why melven aims those fast enemies on stonebreak when they are in top area and not ones which are already in the area where she is? and actually there are more examples when melves aiming is not really optimal. multitasking is still kind of broken, even if you are just on the world map and turn off device the game closes and it's not quite pleasant too. new map is actually quite interesting. for melven easy even on heroic but legend is much more challenging, seems like these bosses need some specific strategy.

The Halfings are really good because of that ability.
