Kingdom Rush Origins 1.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

There goes my productivity: Kingdom Rush Origins for the iPhone and Kingdom Rush Origins HD for the iPad have been released in the App Store today priced at $2.99 and $4.99, respectively.

Created by Ironhide Game Studio, Kingdom Rush Origins is a prequel to both the original Kingdom Rush game and the sequel titled Kingdom Rush Frontiers.

Once again, the player will be tasked with defending mystical lands from sea serpents, Gnoll tribes, enchanted creatures and twilight elves and commanding an arsenal of “unique towers, epic heroes and mighty powers that will help you crush your foes and save the world once again.”

The game features a bunch of new levels and spells, eight new special towers, thirty new enemies, nine new heroes, more than seventy achievements, three difficulty modes and more.

If you’re into tower defense games, then Kingdom Rush Origins could be for you. Check out the game trailer below.

Features include:

  • Re-enter the world of Kingdom Rush: visit mysterious elven forests, magical faery realms and even floating ruins of an ancient metropolis.
  • Unleash the power of the elves with brand new towers and troops! Elf Archers, Mystic Mages, Stone Druids and the Elven Infantry make up the backbone of your army.
  • Discover eight new specialized tower upgrades with over 18 abilities! Vanquish your enemies with elven marksmen, runed bears, magic-wielding wizards, and even giant animated trees.
  • Take up arms against 30 new enemy types and engage in epic boss battles! Face hordes of Gnolls, giant spiders, and the terrible Twilight army.
  • Master and upgrade nine legendary heroes and their awesome powers and spells.

        Have you tried the other two, Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush Frontiers? So much replay value. I bought all games for iPhone, HD version for iPad and Android.
