Defenders of Time
Top Critic Average
Defenders of Time multiplayer mode is conceptually interesting, but ultimately not worth trying because of many technical issues and poorly-executed fundamentals.
Defenders of Time is an exciting tower defense game that no one's playing, making it difficult to actually enjoy its fast-paced action.
Defenders of Time proved to be surprisingly deep, and it would have captured my attention for a lengthier period of time if it would have proved to be more popular, thus allowing me to experience its multiplayer component far more than I did.
Rapid-fire tower defense game 'Defenders of Time' has the polish to stand out in a crowded genre, but key flaws may limit its appeal to a niche audience.
Some might get frustrated with the breakneck pace the game can reach; particularly without the ability to pause and take stock of the situation. However, fans of the genre who feel they can keep up with the escalating mayhem will find Defenders of Time to be a solid entry.
I would expect that, in a sea of tower defense games, that a tower defense game that someone charges you money for, would have a certain level of quality and finesse, especially since there are plenty of free tower defense games out there that do it really well. Defenders of Time, even with its pretty visuals and some redeeming game mechanics, can't stand well on its own, and is easily beat out by other free tower defense games with very difficult levels and shoddy multiplayer, this game is not a very good example of the tower defense genre.
On surface level, Defenders of Time looks like a very generic, bland tower defense game. But after soaking quite a few hours of playtime into it, it's apparent there's much more depth than the game initially lets on.
Defenders of Time is an adequate experience for tower defense enthusiasts, worth your time, but not the cost of admission.
