Your favorite tower defence game(s)

Hey all,

Never really been big into tower defence games, but after talking to a few friends about their love for kingdom rush, I figure I'd give the genre a shot. I've looked at several different ones but I thought I'd throw it out to the experts for their suggestions.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated, however, my preference would be towards anything that has rpg-like elements and I'm Huge on Fantasy ( magic, dragons, etc).

What do you folks recommend or what have you enjoyed most? Thanks

I would recommend the recently released Crystal Siege HD as is has a main character you control and level up and equip with new gear, really a fun game.

Coincidentally I was just looking at that same game. It appears fantasyesque with rpg elements however, I read complaints about the difficulty, apparently it's quite tough?

How have you found it? Did you need or feel any desire to purchase the IAPs ?

IAPs are not recommended in the game coz it's a crutch for the early difficulty modes where it can make you powerful, but the last difficulty mode will provide you with stronger equips than the IAP ones.
