Kingdom Rush completely nails the tower defense genre and this first entry in the series is great fun to play; even nowadays.

Kingdom Rush is very well balanced, charming and with enough difficulty in it to even keep the veterans of Tower Defence games coming back for more. And with the extra modes and challenges Kingdom Rush offers the player a lot of content for replayability. Kingdom Rush is a classic example of tower defense, it combines elements of old and new and brings it to the Nintendo Switch as a very fluid battle simulator. Really, if you’re looking for a solid, amusing and satisfying Tower Defense game you should pick this one up.

There really isn’t much more to say about Kingdom Rush on Xbox. It is a faithful 1:1 port of the mobile game, for better or worse.  The controls work well in the end but did require some time to get used to. At only $10 at launch, it’s an easy purchase if you’re already a fan or someone new to the series.  Here’s to hoping that this is just the start of the franchise porting over to consoles.

Kingdom Rush proves to be a fun and intriguing title, with balanced gameplay and a more than solid technical performance. Even if, given its age, it shows obvious limitations, it represents an excellent opportunity to discover (or rediscover) the Tower Defense genre.
