I'm curious: since direct control of heroes/avatars and card-based mechanics are very old news to the TD genre by now, what makes Crazy Kings "Tower Defense like you've never seen it before"?

It seems, the characters and artwork in general are unique, which makes it never-seen-before.

This does look interesting though. Crystal Siege is my favorite tower defense title mostly because of the balance between RPG and tower defense. If this has that much RPG in its mechanics, i might like it.

Oh this tempts me. But f2p td sounds like a bad idea imo. I hope it's not a online only game that requires power ups or buying cards with cash because you can never get anything good, etc.

In this day and age, I guess we should be thankful devs at least use their own assets :P

(Though this cynicism is actually counter to my general sentiment. I'm a firm proponent of Chair's Law )

I've yet to squeeze that recently Universal-ized gem onto my iPhone. Do tell me if Crazy Kings is anything similar, and I can jump from here to Crystal Siege.

Wow... Thanks for the gameplay vid RR. Looks like the mechanics of this game are really good, but the energy system seems to be in the way of enjoying.

Can anyone who tried it check what the IAPs are? If there is a perma-unlock to remove the stamina system this could be something.

@EP, youre welcome man, actually the game is quite fun even though the gameplay mechanism is similar to other well known TD. the energy system might be annoying but it will get you enough supply for the first hours without any paywall.

btw, the IAP:
