The Survival Arena focuses on these key factors: its not about hiring the best troops or winning PvP battles, its about prevailing against all odds! Build mighty towers, upgrade them, and try to hold off hordes of incoming enemies!
You know that feeling when it seems like Friday, but it's actually Thursday? Survival Arena is kind of like that. Its so addicting that when you finally put down the game, you'll realize youre 93 years old with 20 grandchildren. And it'll have all been worth it.

Full livestream support this game was made to be watched by millions.
Most important of all survive!

High in the raging cyclone of thunder and endless gales, a huge flying Arena Ship makes its way across the endless ocean below. The Arena is legendary and surrounded with myths and superstitions. They say it's run by a Captain long lost to madness. A man who has pirated and plundered more than all other captains combined. To have some fun with all the treasures in his late years, he decided to throw the biggest challenge across the floating isles The Survival Arena Tournament.

Any Captain brave enough can venture into the eye of the storm, and if fortune turns its favorable side, they will find the arena. Thousands have tried to beat the challenges and survive, but none could beat the records. Its time for a new challenger to accept the challenge of the Arena and to become the Grand Champion.

Survive if you dare.

I think this is presented pretty well !! Almost like adding a fresh layer of paint on a familiar genre. I mean, I don't dig the F2P mechanics but it doesn't appear to have timers, at least (still early on for me, so not sure).

I do love tower defense, but I prefer fixed path and have never really felt compelled to do the open field style where you have to dictate the paths of the enemies, so I probably won't spend much time with this one, unfortunately. And getting used to only one life is not easy to adjust to, lol.

I did notice some issues where I would go to swipe a weapon onto the field and it would end up scrolling around the screen and I'd end up misplacing something, so that sucks when it happens. Otherwise, they've put a lot of features into this game, hope it does well.

Okay, have to admit, pretty impressed with what they did here. Quite a bit of variety in types of arena challenges, weapon upgrades, special events, the Twitch implementation, etc. I honestly feel like they have added life to this genre.

Really curious as to what some of you other TD enthusiasts think about it.... (I wish I was better at the non-fixed path strategy so I could be more competitive, lol)

Agree with you on the Game Insight view. I generally don't buy any of their IAP's.

I thought more of the TA tower defense players would be checking out this game and commenting on it.

Anyway, mostly I've been checking out the sudden death arena, but it appears the players who have been in the game longer have all the advantage there since they've been able to upgrade their towers and all player levels compete without separation, so the rewards for finishing 1,000th aren't much, lol. I'll just have to keep collecting the free chests and hope for the best.

Sweet, an update released that now supposedly groups players for the sudden death arena which means just perhaps I will no longer be finishing ranked somewhere with four-digits....
