  • They Did it again, you should buy it! Nov 22, 2018

    By miscell
    I’ve been playing Kingdom Rush and it’s sequels since the first one came out years ago. Unlike all the other apps on my phone, I haven’t deleted them, and still play when I’m bored. When I heard Ironhide was making a fourth game where I get to play as the baddies, I was already counting down the days until it came out. I haven’t played much, but from what I have played, I can tell you it has everything you should expect of KingdomRush games, or any tower defense games, and even more so. The tower variety is awesome, and while it’s upsetting I can’t play all 16 towers for free (5 are premium), I can understand why it has to be that way. Personally, I refrain from using premiums and items when first clearing levels, but I did buy them, and I gotta admit, they’re really fun to mess around with. If you liked the old games or are just discovering the series, I highly recommend you pay the 5 dollars for this game, they give you way more than just 5 dollars worth for this game. Plus, the mini campaigns will add even more content, so we’ll have something to look forward to later!

    Overall $5 for the game is well worth it. You get a good amount of towers to use. Some modes allow you to try optional towers (that you pay extra for) to see if you like it. You do not need to spend any more than $5 to beat the whole game. Would pay a few more bucks for more maps, or free would be better
  • It hurts me to give it three. Mar 5, 2019

    By Big Daddy Patty 24
    Let me start out by saying, I’ve been a kingdom rush fan since day one. They are by far the best mobile games on the market. Vengeance had so much potential yet it was squandered. Let’s start with the pros. First, the game looks great. It is very visually appealing and is very detailed. Second, is there are SOME good towers in this game and they really play of your nostalgia. For instance, the Dark Knights or the Harassers were some of the coolest, yet most annoying enemies to go against, and to have them in your arsenal is beyond epic. The third, is that it has some cool level design. But in my opinion, it seemed that this game was a BIG cash grab. Just playing on people’s nostalgia to buy it. Firstly, let’s talk about the towers you have to pay for. That is completely unacceptable. There is one they sell for around $7!!!! Second, is the terribly boring enemies. They had so many chances to put in cool enemies yet they failed. Third, is the lack of content. There were very few levels to play in and no post campaign levels when they first came out. And then they release the most terrible DLC with 3 new levels. It is SO bad. The enemies are just annoying and really break the mechanics of the game. Lastly, is wasted potential. There were so many cooler towers and hero’s they could’ve come up with. In all, this is a great game, but it does not match up the the Kingdom Rush Standard.

    Played the original KR and Frontiers on PC sites and recently tried mobile. The games are already very replayable, but the extra maps and challenges are amazing. Every entry has the same formula, but I love the formula (hence why mileage varies). This entry is challenging, full of amusing Easter eggs, lavishly illustrated, has some new twists to upgrading towers, heroes, et al, and has a fun, sassy narrative. I love, plenty won't, but it's because it's more of the same, but more more.

    I just bought KRV a few days ago. I am familiar with the KR series, played it on and off over the years. I love the games, the art style, the mechanics, it’s all great. However, I take issue with the pay-wall that is currently in place. As I understand the game normally costs $5 on the AppStore, which is totally fair for a great game. Once I got the game though, I found there to be an astonishing amount of content locked behind a pay-wall. A few things behind a paywall as dlc would make sense, but so much? At first I thought “it might be worth a few extra dollars for some cool content “. Then I saw the “discounted “ price tag. $31 plus tax to receive all of the content, minimum, on an app that already costs $5? That’s ridiculous. I was also extremely disappointed to see that less than a quarter of the hero’s were unlockable through gameplay, and so near the start as well. I would have hoped to see a few more heros to collect. It would give the game something more to drive players to achieve. The fact that so few of the heros are unlockable and the price to unlock all the content is so steep, makes players feel like they have been ripped-off, and makes me start to regret my purchase.

    By far my favorite TD game. Not only do you play the sassy villain, but all of the towers are interesting and it's possible to 3-Star all the maps without buying from the item store. Unlocking towers with progress makes me feel like I'm working towards something, I just wish some more heroes were like that. Overall the best TD game and perfect for those who want a beatable challenge.
  • Fun but getting too expensive May 29, 2019

    By Jonlzt
    Honestly Kingdom Rush is hands down my FAVORITE tower defense series. They offer some fun levels, some challenges, and the always loveably Easter eggs throughout the campaign. This latest game, however, requires you to pay to buy new heroes (as they have in the past) AND use almost half of the towers to choose from. It seems each new game requires more purchases than the previous one. The first was free to play, but pay for new heroes. Second was pay to play and pay for heroes. Now pay for game, heroes and towers. Heroes being purchased, ok, that’s been established. But a bummer about the towers. I can’t necessarily justify the expense on top of already paying to play the game in the first place... it’s “Tower Defense”. The towers shouldn’t be an extra expense. Also, since this is my favorite TD series, I’m generally willing to buy the heroes in a “bundle” deal. I did when the latest game first came out. But now there are a few more added in the latest update, and they’re not unlocked for me. Meaning once again, I’d have to spend more money on something I thought I essentially already paid for (again, the bundle was for all of the heroes). Was hoping they’d honor the purchases made before the update, and allow access to the new heroes too.
  • Awesome Game! But.. Nov 27, 2018

    By DiegoGuz05
    This game is a blast! I have played every game Iron Hide has made and I have yet to be disappointed! Although the game is not free, this are the best $4.99 plus tax I had spent. You get a tower defense game that is repayable with different difficulties and achievements to get, some are pop culture references (that’s another thing I love!) as the title says there’s something “bad” and that is since I have an iPhone XS Max, the notch gets on the way blocking a part of the map which can be frustrating because sometimes the entrances for my base are covered by the notch I’m not able to deploy my heroes or bombs to stop those pesky stragglers that made it past my towers while they were busy targeting the rest. Maybe make the game fill the screen and hide the notch? Idk. Another minor problem I have is that you buy the game for $4.99 and some of the towers or heroes you might want cost more money and some of those add ons are $6.99. I would love for Iron Hide to maybe cut the price of those add ons in half (because you already spent $4.99 to be able to play the game) or charge a bit more for the game (maybe like $9.99 and include everything) This game is great I recommend everyone to try it!

    I had trouble getting this game to run on Android so I got the pc version, and I have to say it might be my favorite KR game so far. I wasn't sure if I'd like the change to the tower system at first but now I prefer it. And the game still has that nice KR pay system, where you don't need to buy anything additional to 100% the game, but the extra stuff is there if you want it. My only complaint is this game is a little easy even on impossible.

    First off wanted to start by saying AMAZING game I’ve played every TD game made by these developers. This TD was much more challenging the the previous 2 KR games. One thing I like the turret wheel kind like picking a load out. However it makes me miss being able pick two towers in game. I loved the hero’s in the game the unique passives and new abilities are fun to use. One of my concerns is how many purchases were available in this one. I know games have to make money and the campaign was definitely beatable with the basic towers. But I would be devastated if future games couldn’t be beat unless u spent money. That’s all for now just want say amazing game and keep adding more. Update... love the new lvls they came out with and towers. I sincerely hope there are more lvls the only bummer for the winter campaign there wasn’t any end comic seen where u catch the next hint of the villains plan. additional the boss for the winter campaign was pretty weak the lvl itself was much more of a challenge then the actual boss. I will say I like how they put in the yeti as a hero. That’s all for now I really hope the next update is coming soon

    Cute graphics and slick interface, as we've come to expect from the Kingdom Rush series. But this is the worst game of the series in terms of gameplay. The thing that made previous kingdom rush games so good was the complex and well balanced strategy needed to beat the game. But, in vengeance, every level is simple to beat using obvious strategy, even on the highest difficulty. A big let down compared to the earlier games.

    As a long-time fan of the franchise, it pains me to rate this game so poorly.. I thoroughly enjoy the new perspective. The new towers looks really interesting, though it sucks they're locked behind a paywall. I enjoy that each map is a challenge. But now we come to my issue, my reason for such a poor rating: every single level I've done has frozen on the last wave, forcing me to reboot. I can't play a game that makes me basically do each level twice. It's disheartening.
  • Weakest of the series Oct 23, 2021

    By jiggawatt
    Let me start with my biggest gripe. The game does not track Game Center achievements. It will if you remember to dig through the settings menu and click on achievements before playing. Only then will it connect to Game Center and track. If you get achievements while not connected it will never sync those achievements to Game Center. I don’t know why this simple bug has not been addressed. The rest of the series connects to Game Center on App Start. On to the game itself there is a heavy focus on micro transactions for hero’s and particularly towers, which is unique in the series. This isn't a freemium game either so it stands out much more. The towers themselves are not as interesting. The offering of purchasable hero’s and towers feels too broad in options questioning the attention to balance in the gameplay. It comes across as bait to attract players to trying nothing more than changing the window dressing. The game does however do well in the graphics department and introducing some new and interesting enemies and scenes. There are some other polish elements around the interface that are particularly good in this offering.

    Cons: (1) Too short. I beat this game shortly after I got it, and i was only playing casually. (2) Re-skinned version of previous entries. If you played any of their other games, then you've essentially played this game. There's only minor deviations between this game and the others, and I even had someone ask if it was origins. (3) Requires additional payments to unlock other aspects. Similar to previous entries, you have to pay more to get some of the best heroes & towers. Pros: (1) Fun hidden details. Each level has hidden details you can find that reference various media from pop culture (Terminator, Lord of the Rings). (2) You're the bad guy this time. I was hoping there would be missions where you would send waves after waves towards the enemy castle, instead of just setting up towers, but no dice. I don't think the pros outweigh the cons, and hope they release new content (at no additional cost) to expand the game.
  • It’s just not the same... May 11, 2019

    By 1sparrow
    I’m such a fan. I’ve played the 3 other games before this one and really have had years of enjoyment. The colors and scale seem gaudy and almost more childlike now. Really love and appreciate the art even if the color scale is wrong. The lag time between entering and leaving a level is tortuous and having to look at those red eyes fill up so slowly is painful... maybe they could change that screen into a complex cool geometry or labyrinth image instead? It would also be nice if we had the option to be the good guy or bad. It’s fun having those bag guy options for sure but the underlying message is “the bad guy in charge isn’t the worst bad guy. There could be worse, but not a good guy either”. Interesting? Some of the tower options like the treants, melting furnace, and goblirangs seem really lame and ineffective. I want to like it but it’s not happening yet. It doesn’t feel pleasing to look at and I think that’s the worst thing for me. It’s great that they have upgrades adding more but it’s only 3 levels and then you’re done. How about 2 or 3 endless levels to play? At least I still have the first 3 games! I really hope you guys can fix it in the next version. Good luck!🕉🙏🏼
  • Squandered potential Nov 27, 2018

    By fireplug9
    Its a good game that offers an array of possibilities except for one problem; it is way too short. So, some complaints have been about a few towers that are behind a paywall. The paywall doesn't bother me too much. As the developer commented in one response I read (paraphrasing), “the pay towers are there just to add some new possibilities and also if you just want to experiment with them.” Thats fair enough. However, what makes no sense is that they want you to buy towers and them provide only the campaign stages to use them on. And those stages ended up being way too easy at any difficulty and the whole campaign can be beat in a single day. To unlock the whole game with all the towers and heros would be about $30. That’s insane. $30 dollars for a game that can only be played on a handful of maps. And dont forget all that nonsense in the first 7 stages where you can’t even level up to full strength and the enemies practically fall over dead from exhaustion. What exactly is fun about that?
  • Towers nerfed. Enemies buffed. Pay to succeed. Cash grab. Dec 31, 2018

    By SirRylander
    Long time player. Beat all your games on multiple platforms. Spent extra money on them even. It was earned by making good fair and balanced game. But this trash is stupid. All the the original towers have been nerfed into the ground. All the enemies have been buffed to insane degrees. Special enemies where no problem in later levels. But special enemies every level after 2? I can barely stave off normal units with the Dragon helping. Let alone enemies who can’t be hurt except for two seconds after dashing down the map. Or enemies that just buff on stalling units. Or healers. Or blah blah. This isn’t ok early game. It’s way to difficult and just encourages spending on the ONE TIME USE items in the store. You guys didn’t need this slummy tactic. I don’t mind Bloons TD 3 Dollars for a always double money because it’s always there. One time use items are a stupid cash grab with the massive difficulty spike. I’m sorry I ever supported this company.
  • It's great but the micro-transactions are getting ridiculous Aug 16, 2019

    By Rusty Flack
    Kingdom Rush: Vengeance is a fantastic addition to the series and brings a lot of fresh ideas to the kingdom Rush formula. The visual quality of KR: Vengeance is especially improved; the game looks great. However, the game was somewhat lacking in content at launch, and still is now to a certain degree. Additionally, this game has less free heroes than previous entries, with most heroes being premium and more expensive than previous games. If that wasn't enough, Ironhide has begun locking towers behind a paywall as well. Almost 1/3 of the towers available in the game must be purchased; some of which will cost up to $7. All of this in a PAID game! Since release Ironhide has pumped out even more premium heroes and towers and relatively few new levels and other free content. It's really disappointing to see such a great franchise become so money hungry.
  • A step forward and a step back Feb 2, 2020

    By Smgoodguy
    Ive loved every single kingdom rush. Owned them and iron marines on multiple platforms. Spent money on their in game purchases too. However with this game i will be breaking that trend. The new tower system is interesting i enjoy it. Of course I believe micro transactions costing more than the game is stupid. But my issue resides in the mechanics of the game itself. The barracks ai is absolutely unbelievably atrocious. In past games they werent brilliant but passable. In this game its truly broken. They will stand there and be attacked by new ranged enemies that have far too much range. The barrack troops are worthless in this game. They will standby while enemies are standing RIGHT next to them and get themselves killed. I should not have to micro manage them that much. In past games this was an issue but nowhere near this bad. Ive never delated one of ironhides games without finishing it but this i have.
  • Slowly going over to the Darkside. Mar 25, 2021

    By mryuk
    I own all of their games I may have purchased some of them of them twice. I bought this and didn’t like it and have returned to it to try to get in now that I replaying all of them. I kind of feel like this is where they’re jumping the shark and following the herd by making it ra pay to win game. I see in the comments that they keep saying that it’s made to be able to win without paying additional money which can be substantial if you look at the price of everything. But I don’t believe this to be the case at least not to the point where it’s any fun. Stick with the other games and hopefully if they make another one they’ll go back to the old ways. Or if they don’t, it’s a great opportunity for someone to come and take their cheese.

  • They Did it again, you should buy it! Nov 22, 2018

    By miscell
    I’ve been playing Kingdom Rush and it’s sequels since the first one came out years ago. Unlike all the other apps on my phone, I haven’t deleted them, and still play when I’m bored. When I heard Ironhide was making a fourth game where I get to play as the baddies, I was already counting down the days until it came out. I haven’t played much, but from what I have played, I can tell you it has everything you should expect of KingdomRush games, or any tower defense games, and even more so. The tower variety is awesome, and while it’s upsetting I can’t play all 16 towers for free (5 are premium), I can understand why it has to be that way. Personally, I refrain from using premiums and items when first clearing levels, but I did buy them, and I gotta admit, they’re really fun to mess around with. If you liked the old games or are just discovering the series, I highly recommend you pay the 5 dollars for this game, they give you way more than just 5 dollars worth for this game. Plus, the mini campaigns will add even more content, so we’ll have something to look forward to later!

    Overall $5 for the game is well worth it. You get a good amount of towers to use. Some modes allow you to try optional towers (that you pay extra for) to see if you like it. You do not need to spend any more than $5 to beat the whole game. Would pay a few more bucks for more maps, or free would be better

    Played the original KR and Frontiers on PC sites and recently tried mobile. The games are already very replayable, but the extra maps and challenges are amazing. Every entry has the same formula, but I love the formula (hence why mileage varies). This entry is challenging, full of amusing Easter eggs, lavishly illustrated, has some new twists to upgrading towers, heroes, et al, and has a fun, sassy narrative. I love, plenty won't, but it's because it's more of the same, but more more.

    First off wanted to start by saying AMAZING game I’ve played every TD game made by these developers. This TD was much more challenging the the previous 2 KR games. One thing I like the turret wheel kind like picking a load out. However it makes me miss being able pick two towers in game. I loved the hero’s in the game the unique passives and new abilities are fun to use. One of my concerns is how many purchases were available in this one. I know games have to make money and the campaign was definitely beatable with the basic towers. But I would be devastated if future games couldn’t be beat unless u spent money. That’s all for now just want say amazing game and keep adding more. Update... love the new lvls they came out with and towers. I sincerely hope there are more lvls the only bummer for the winter campaign there wasn’t any end comic seen where u catch the next hint of the villains plan. additional the boss for the winter campaign was pretty weak the lvl itself was much more of a challenge then the actual boss. I will say I like how they put in the yeti as a hero. That’s all for now I really hope the next update is coming soon

    It's IronHide, obviously its great! A bit of freemium, but devs deserve pay with this quality, not to mention adds to other projects. It's KR but playing the Bad guys! As usual it gets VERY Challenging but is a beaut and balanced for creating strategy. The only problem with most of KR's (the first had one) it's missing a bestiary. They provide pics n descripts but only for first encounter and I like to look at all the enemies for fun & strategy. Please update all the games with an enemy gallery!
  • This Game is by far the best ever! Nov 3, 2019

    By Kingdom_Rush4Life
    I have been a huge fan of the Kingdom Rush series of games science I was like four. I remember when the original one came out. I have bought, played, and loved all of the versions, and I highly recommend them. To me, when I saw this game, the price of buying it was a no-brainer. I new that 3 bucks is totally worth all of the fun, and versatility I would get from this game. To be quite frank, I would buy this one, (it is probably one of the best one’s) and then I would check out all of the other kingdom rushes. They are sooooo great! Anyway, back to vengeance. This one is cool because you get to play as the villain, (Vez’Nan) And I love the fact that you can choose which towers you use, and all of the different enemies and stages. Also, to someone like me that has played all of the games, (including iron marines, which I highly recommend) I start to recognize some of the hero’s and stuff. It just reminds me of all of the time I have played these games. Overall, if you are on the fence about purchasing this game, just do it. It is so worth it and you will not be disappointed!

    I am a huge fan of this series, and made a point to beat all of the other ones before buying this one. This one is awesome! It's different from the others in the fact that there is more depth; way more things to upgrade, you can select different towers to bring into battle (!!!) and the graphics are definitely updated, very smooth and lots of detail throughout all of the enemy interactions. I'm so impressed by Ironhide, and if you haven't tried Iron Marines... Do it! Ironhide devs: keep it up!!!
  • Great game & don’t complaint for IAP Nov 24, 2018

    By jia0405
    Kingdom rush is my favorite iOS game. I have all series and still keep them on iPad. The game itself has great quality as previous one like it always. I understand ppl don’t like IAP, however it is not same case for kingdom rush. Premium heroes and towers are nice to have but it is not necessary to beat game. The devs bring lots more towers compare to last 3 games. It is not surprised that they charge few of them. I usually purchase some heroes I liked right away to support dev, then purchased all of rest once they are sale later on. It will be the same for tower this time. Some people think they already pay for the game then should get all of the content. But come on, those premium heroes and towers are just DLC which available instantly when game come out. WHY it has to be free? If you can’t afford it, that’s fine. Please don’t complain it any more. Last we all know devs will have update with new campaigns and heroes. Guessing this time if they will release more towers. I am willing to pay if those are cool.
  • Feel kind of ripped off Jan 29, 2020

    By Sqiglles
    I just bought KRV a few days ago. I am familiar with the KR series, played it on and off over the years. I love the games, the art style, the mechanics, it’s all great. However, I take issue with the pay-wall that is currently in place. As I understand the game normally costs $5 on the AppStore, which is totally fair for a great game. Once I got the game though, I found there to be an astonishing amount of content locked behind a pay-wall. A few things behind a paywall as dlc would make sense, but so much? At first I thought “it might be worth a few extra dollars for some cool content “. Then I saw the “discounted “ price tag. $31 plus tax to receive all of the content, minimum, on an app that already costs $5? That’s ridiculous. I was also extremely disappointed to see that less than a quarter of the hero’s were unlockable through gameplay, and so near the start as well. I would have hoped to see a few more heros to collect. It would give the game something more to drive players to achieve. The fact that so few of the heros are unlockable and the price to unlock all the content is so steep, makes players feel like they have been ripped-off, and makes me start to regret my purchase.
  • Awesome Game! But.. Nov 27, 2018

    By DiegoGuz05
    This game is a blast! I have played every game Iron Hide has made and I have yet to be disappointed! Although the game is not free, this are the best $4.99 plus tax I had spent. You get a tower defense game that is repayable with different difficulties and achievements to get, some are pop culture references (that’s another thing I love!) as the title says there’s something “bad” and that is since I have an iPhone XS Max, the notch gets on the way blocking a part of the map which can be frustrating because sometimes the entrances for my base are covered by the notch I’m not able to deploy my heroes or bombs to stop those pesky stragglers that made it past my towers while they were busy targeting the rest. Maybe make the game fill the screen and hide the notch? Idk. Another minor problem I have is that you buy the game for $4.99 and some of the towers or heroes you might want cost more money and some of those add ons are $6.99. I would love for Iron Hide to maybe cut the price of those add ons in half (because you already spent $4.99 to be able to play the game) or charge a bit more for the game (maybe like $9.99 and include everything) This game is great I recommend everyone to try it!

    By Tonk IDK
    Very fun, LOVE all the tower options (my favorite is the Zombie Graveyard) and the Huge campaign. The only thing that I found was sometimes something (just one thing in the level like a single enemy) will freeze and you can't beet the level, so you have to do it over again. But over all, super fun game and it is nice to have another Kingdom Rush game for me to play.
  • Best of the series in Gameplay but worst in game purchasable content Nov 24, 2018

    By Dakota Howett
    The game is great and by far the best of the series. I like how you can now customize what towers you use in the game which makes for a great way to change your strategy based on the level. I also love the feel of the game, now that your the Villains we get to see their side of the story which is very entertaining. I also love the little Easter eggs to other series that gives you something to do while the battle is going on. However the draw back of this game is that you have to not only purchase some hero’s but now even the towers? it seems pretty greedy for the amount of content there is. If they were .99 cents maybe that’d be better but really I think it doesn’t feel I should pay 30$ for the whole game. Heck you could keep the prices if you would give us a way to achieve some of the towers or hero’s. Either by achieving some goals or completely levels in certain ways or just saving gems for the towers. This would increase the time to play the game and you’d get the whole game.
  • Very polished, lacking end game. Nov 26, 2018

    By Normalite
    I have played and love each of the Ironhide S.A. games. The graphics and animations on Vengeance are superb. I love the new tower mechanic. There are also a variety of new mechanics with the stages and enemies that keep things fresh. On the downside...I was really disappointed when I finished the game and no bonus or endless levels popped up. I had not read any of the reviews yet, so I did not know that this was lacking. Hopefully this can be added in the future. Though I will do them just because they are fun, it is also less fun to not get additional stars for doing the second and third challenges for each stage. I’d love for the talent tree to be a bit more expansive and allow for more stars on the challenges. Lastly, the heroes. While each fun in their own right, only having three feels like a letdown. That goes back to the original game and just seems like a step backwards. Still, for its shortcoming in those departments, it was still a blast to play, and I will continue my way through all of the challenges for some time to come.

    This is good, but not quite as good as the other games in the franchise. I liked the additional tower choices, but overall Vengeance was quite a bit easier than the other Kingdom Rush games, and there were fewer stages to play through, and fewer bosses. Still fun, but not as challenging. Also, I kept accidentally setting off my specials in the lower right corner.
  • Worth the money Jul 24, 2019

    By Diamondback719
    This is a great game! Kingdom Rush has always been a good series, and this is no exception. The unique secrets and hero traits are fun to play with, and it’s cool to play as the bad guy. This game gives a pretty good challenge, too, which is nice, because some tower defense games can be too easy, while others are impossibly hard. This game finds a good balance. Some heroes and towers are paid, which I completely understand and am fine with. My only problem is that nearly all of the heroes are paid, when they are the most fun to use! I personally bought the black dragon, and loved it. However, I feel like more of the heroes should be free. The tower variety is nice but they sometimes feel obsolete. In the last levels I was only using the same few towers over and over, which may just be a personal preference. Another issue, if you can call it that, is I wish the game was longer. It was super fun and I loved playing it, and I was sad to see that I had beaten it. Other than that, this game is definitely worth the time!
  • DLC? Post Campaign? Apr 27, 2019

    By It's me, your Dad
    I want to start off by saying this is nearly my favorite kingdom rush game, second to only origins. When you manage to look past the extra paid towers and heroes, it is a wonderful game. Except it’s lacking the Kingdom Rush staple: a post campaign that is nearly as long as the actual campaign. It’s what keeps people playing for months and years on end. The Aquatic expansion was a good start, and I’m hoping Ironhide looks at it that way as well. Perhaps Oloch finally rises up against you and you have to defeat him. Maybe Denas’s heir starts to challenge you. Maybe you move south looking to fight your way to hammer hold in the wake of Malagar’s defeat in frontiers. There are so many possibilities and so much potential in this game it is impossible to ignore. I have been a fan of Kingdom Rush since she it was a flash game and I can tell you that the only thing this game needs to skyrocket is more post campaign. I hope you see this Ironhide. Thank you so much for another incredible game, I hope you take it farther, and good luck on “A Rift In Time”.
  • Amazing game but one problem Dec 22, 2018

    By Brad Seidl
    While Ironhide has made the best mobile games by putting a ton of effort into each and every one there is one thing that makes the game fall below the rest (not by a lot though still 5/5 for gameplay and story). The problem is that it seems to much like iron marines, theres no enemy encyclopedia (which is probably due to game length), there is no way to check the exact stats of the hero’s or towers except for in game (which makes it much harder to consider buying one), and instead of adding more levels they gave you an impossible difficulty which is pointless considering how you have to beat the campaign to unlock and on top of that there’s no proof of beating the game on a harder difficulty which makes playing on then pointless. Not having the encyclopedia or elite levels was a big letdown for me and is my reasoning for giving four stars however I love the new tower mechanic and I love how every tower has 3 upgrades now so outside of these issues it is truly great game and still worth the buy.
  • One level in Dec 17, 2018

    By daveonezero
    I can tell it’s just as good as the others Edit: in some ways. In some it may be worse and others it may be better I have bought Origins many times. The latest in a new Air. It looks gorgeous there as all their games do no matter the device. I bought this game even though I only have an SE. It looks great but want to show support to get a desktop version. I don’t think I’ll buy the heroes or towers until I upgrade or it come out on desktop I don’t game much but I keep coming back to Kingdom Rush. They are fantastic This one changed up some elements with how the upgrades and towers work. Now the upgrade trees is more console and smaller only having 4 groups. Which at first seems like less options but it’s just more streamlined now and makes sense with the big pool of towers Meanwhile there is a pool of towers to pick from. Both of these changes have pros and cons. I liked the major change in the last upgrade level to towers where you pick a specialization for each in the previous games. It gave a bit of strategy. Now the strategy is in picking which towers you equip something I will have to wait and see once I unlock all the towers. I hope they expand on this game and continue to release more maps, towers and heroes as they did with the last. I will wait for a desktop version to really get into the extra content.
  • It hurts me to give it three. Mar 5, 2019

    By Big Daddy Patty 24
    Let me start out by saying, I’ve been a kingdom rush fan since day one. They are by far the best mobile games on the market. Vengeance had so much potential yet it was squandered. Let’s start with the pros. First, the game looks great. It is very visually appealing and is very detailed. Second, is there are SOME good towers in this game and they really play of your nostalgia. For instance, the Dark Knights or the Harassers were some of the coolest, yet most annoying enemies to go against, and to have them in your arsenal is beyond epic. The third, is that it has some cool level design. But in my opinion, it seemed that this game was a BIG cash grab. Just playing on people’s nostalgia to buy it. Firstly, let’s talk about the towers you have to pay for. That is completely unacceptable. There is one they sell for around $7!!!! Second, is the terribly boring enemies. They had so many chances to put in cool enemies yet they failed. Third, is the lack of content. There were very few levels to play in and no post campaign levels when they first came out. And then they release the most terrible DLC with 3 new levels. It is SO bad. The enemies are just annoying and really break the mechanics of the game. Lastly, is wasted potential. There were so many cooler towers and hero’s they could’ve come up with. In all, this is a great game, but it does not match up the the Kingdom Rush Standard.
  • Fun but getting too expensive May 29, 2019

    By Jonlzt
    Honestly Kingdom Rush is hands down my FAVORITE tower defense series. They offer some fun levels, some challenges, and the always loveably Easter eggs throughout the campaign. This latest game, however, requires you to pay to buy new heroes (as they have in the past) AND use almost half of the towers to choose from. It seems each new game requires more purchases than the previous one. The first was free to play, but pay for new heroes. Second was pay to play and pay for heroes. Now pay for game, heroes and towers. Heroes being purchased, ok, that’s been established. But a bummer about the towers. I can’t necessarily justify the expense on top of already paying to play the game in the first place... it’s “Tower Defense”. The towers shouldn’t be an extra expense. Also, since this is my favorite TD series, I’m generally willing to buy the heroes in a “bundle” deal. I did when the latest game first came out. But now there are a few more added in the latest update, and they’re not unlocked for me. Meaning once again, I’d have to spend more money on something I thought I essentially already paid for (again, the bundle was for all of the heroes). Was hoping they’d honor the purchases made before the update, and allow access to the new heroes too.

    By BuckGB
    Worse than the original. It's more about troop and tower spam as opposed to actually designing a solid defense. The enemy variety is lackluster as well, and all of the jokes sprinkled throughout the game aren't funny. Vengeance uses the success of other popular franchises as a crutch for creativity when it comes to the secrets throughout the maps. Overall, worse than the 1st game.
  • Greed Nov 27, 2018

    By harry086
    I love ironhide and I am especially a fan of their kingdom rush games. The original was fun and basic. It cost only a few bucks and the in app purchases were completely optional heroes. This was the standard for the first three games. However, with this game ironhide got a little greedy. There are five towers that you can buy to add into your game and in my opinion it creates a tough choice. On the one hand, it cost around 20 dollars for all of the towers. On the other, it makes it feel as though I’m missing a huge facet of the game by not purchasing them. I like vengeance. Maybe even more than the previous games. I’ve even been anticipating it since a few months after the release of origins. But the price of these towers just feels like my kingdom rush games have become another cash grab. I know you make your games relatively cheap. And we all have to make money somehow. But one of the towers alone cost two more dollars than the game itself. I love you ironhide and your kingdom rush games. But I really think the towers should be cheaper or at least introduce a way to buy all the towers at once at a reduced cost.
  • Feb 3, 2022

    By Jason Cook
    While the game is fun a few things really detract from it. The first is the micro transactions. While you can play the game as F2P you will have to shell out cash for upgraded heros and towers. This is especially bad since the towers are really powerful and needed for higher difficulty. What is sad is there is no in-game way to earn those upgrades.
  • Jan 13, 2022

    By DJ Dude
    I enjoy this game and the series very much, but I have come to a problem recently with the latest update and the new missions. On the mission City of Rivers, I am unable to complete the level. I have replayed the level multiple times and even sold all my towers at the end and it still won't end. Please do fix, thank you .
  • Dec 3, 2018

    By A Google user
    It's ok, pace is slower and content is leaner than previous entries, and the changes made aren't really refinements or additions, just differences, and maybe not for the better. It suffers by comparison because the previous games were so amazingly well done. I think they want to evolve and not just repeat, you see that with the space game they did too. Ambitious, well crafted, but still awkward. The art is great, but somehow less engaging. The upgrade system is a step in the wrong direction. This is sort of the Diablo 3 to the Diablo 2 that was KR 1, 2, and 3. And somehow it just feels slower and not as well paced and more awkward and clumsier, and more random and less balanced. That last may be due to having fifteen different types of towers, the strategy on your end and on theirs just becomes a mess, because neither you nor they have a clear idea what you'll do with a map. Maybe the game is fresh and needs more patches to refine and that's all, but after so many stellar entries you would expect they would have that down.
  • Huge fan but this one slips a bit Jun 6, 2019

    By bjecho16
    Starting off by saying I've played every single kingdom rush game and this is the only series of apps I've ever thought were worth purchasing. I'd rate all the previous ones 5 stars. That being said, this one is a bit of a miss for me. I don't really see this as a cash grab like other reviewers since I never felt the want to buy extras. But I agree with others that the game was much too short. With the new upgrade system, there's also no incentive to do the challenge modes and complete to 100 which I always did with previous games. The towers were a little underwhelming and I didn't think any of their abilities were really that fun to use like previous games. They got rid of the tower upgrade tiers which made me lose a feeling of progression in the game. I think biggest letdown for me was the new tower system which brought down available towers during actual gameplay from 8 variants to 5. Visually the game is still top notch though and the concept of playing as the villain was well done. Overall, a bit disappointed but still a loyal fan to the series.
  • Such a waste. May 4, 2019

    By AsterGarden
    I’ve been a fan of Kingdom Rush since the very beginning.. I still remember the first time I played it years ago.. so when I saw this new version I was SO hyped. While the game does look very appealing and felt a bit nostalgic... While the new mechanics aren’t bad and it gives it a new aspect.. I felt like game was very “slow” ever the added after game level weren’t entertaining. I couldn’t help be bored before I got to the end. However I just couldn’t help feeling that this game was nothing more than a money grab. Not only do you need to be a few dollars if you want another Hero now you have to buy towers as well.. had the actual game been fun like it’s predecessors maybe I wouldn’t mind so much. But my very first thoughts before I even played my first stage was how baffling it was to have to pay SO much money if you want all the towers other than the ones they give you. It pains me to see such a game with so much potential be reduced to this.
  • Paying for Towers?!?! Nov 25, 2018

    By GymLeaderJon
    I have all the kingdom rush games and iron marines which I all loved playing, however this newest installment is different by paying for towers... seriously?! I was completely fine that you had to pay for heroes since it did not majorly affect the gameplay, and it was still do-able with the free heroes. Now I am stuck with either buying heroes or unlocking ALL the towers first,(which is about $23 tax not included). I gave one star just because it was a KR game, another star since the graphics were beautiful, and the third star for the awesome switch as being the “bad guys” in this installment of Kingdom Rush. I really love you creators but when I saw in-game that you made towers an in-app purchase, it just made me sad ;(. If it wasnt for that, then I would have rated it 5/5. Also I checked the in-app purchases on this game on itunes and it doesnt even include purchase costs of towers nor does it list them.

    Cute graphics and slick interface, as we've come to expect from the Kingdom Rush series. But this is the worst game of the series in terms of gameplay. The thing that made previous kingdom rush games so good was the complex and well balanced strategy needed to beat the game. But, in vengeance, every level is simple to beat using obvious strategy, even on the highest difficulty. A big let down compared to the earlier games.
  • Feb 10, 2021

    By Fullmetal Admin
    As a long-time fan of the franchise, it pains me to rate this game so poorly.. I thoroughly enjoy the new perspective. The new towers looks really interesting, though it sucks they're locked behind a paywall. I enjoy that each map is a challenge. But now we come to my issue, my reason for such a poor rating: every single level I've done has frozen on the last wave, forcing me to reboot. I can't play a game that makes me basically do each level twice. It's disheartening.
  • Weakest of the series Oct 23, 2021

    By jiggawatt
    Let me start with my biggest gripe. The game does not track Game Center achievements. It will if you remember to dig through the settings menu and click on achievements before playing. Only then will it connect to Game Center and track. If you get achievements while not connected it will never sync those achievements to Game Center. I don’t know why this simple bug has not been addressed. The rest of the series connects to Game Center on App Start. On to the game itself there is a heavy focus on micro transactions for hero’s and particularly towers, which is unique in the series. This isn't a freemium game either so it stands out much more. The towers themselves are not as interesting. The offering of purchasable hero’s and towers feels too broad in options questioning the attention to balance in the gameplay. It comes across as bait to attract players to trying nothing more than changing the window dressing. The game does however do well in the graphics department and introducing some new and interesting enemies and scenes. There are some other polish elements around the interface that are particularly good in this offering.

    Cons: (1) Too short. I beat this game shortly after I got it, and i was only playing casually. (2) Re-skinned version of previous entries. If you played any of their other games, then you've essentially played this game. There's only minor deviations between this game and the others, and I even had someone ask if it was origins. (3) Requires additional payments to unlock other aspects. Similar to previous entries, you have to pay more to get some of the best heroes & towers. Pros: (1) Fun hidden details. Each level has hidden details you can find that reference various media from pop culture (Terminator, Lord of the Rings). (2) You're the bad guy this time. I was hoping there would be missions where you would send waves after waves towards the enemy castle, instead of just setting up towers, but no dice. I don't think the pros outweigh the cons, and hope they release new content (at no additional cost) to expand the game.
  • Squandered potential Nov 27, 2018

    By fireplug9
    Its a good game that offers an array of possibilities except for one problem; it is way too short. So, some complaints have been about a few towers that are behind a paywall. The paywall doesn't bother me too much. As the developer commented in one response I read (paraphrasing), “the pay towers are there just to add some new possibilities and also if you just want to experiment with them.” Thats fair enough. However, what makes no sense is that they want you to buy towers and them provide only the campaign stages to use them on. And those stages ended up being way too easy at any difficulty and the whole campaign can be beat in a single day. To unlock the whole game with all the towers and heros would be about $30. That’s insane. $30 dollars for a game that can only be played on a handful of maps. And dont forget all that nonsense in the first 7 stages where you can’t even level up to full strength and the enemies practically fall over dead from exhaustion. What exactly is fun about that?
  • It's great but the micro-transactions are getting ridiculous Aug 16, 2019

    By Rusty Flack
    Kingdom Rush: Vengeance is a fantastic addition to the series and brings a lot of fresh ideas to the kingdom Rush formula. The visual quality of KR: Vengeance is especially improved; the game looks great. However, the game was somewhat lacking in content at launch, and still is now to a certain degree. Additionally, this game has less free heroes than previous entries, with most heroes being premium and more expensive than previous games. If that wasn't enough, Ironhide has begun locking towers behind a paywall as well. Almost 1/3 of the towers available in the game must be purchased; some of which will cost up to $7. All of this in a PAID game! Since release Ironhide has pumped out even more premium heroes and towers and relatively few new levels and other free content. It's really disappointing to see such a great franchise become so money hungry.
  • A step forward and a step back Feb 2, 2020

    By Smgoodguy
    Ive loved every single kingdom rush. Owned them and iron marines on multiple platforms. Spent money on their in game purchases too. However with this game i will be breaking that trend. The new tower system is interesting i enjoy it. Of course I believe micro transactions costing more than the game is stupid. But my issue resides in the mechanics of the game itself. The barracks ai is absolutely unbelievably atrocious. In past games they werent brilliant but passable. In this game its truly broken. They will stand there and be attacked by new ranged enemies that have far too much range. The barrack troops are worthless in this game. They will standby while enemies are standing RIGHT next to them and get themselves killed. I should not have to micro manage them that much. In past games this was an issue but nowhere near this bad. Ive never delated one of ironhides games without finishing it but this i have.
  • Slowly going over to the Darkside. Mar 25, 2021

    By mryuk
    I own all of their games I may have purchased some of them of them twice. I bought this and didn’t like it and have returned to it to try to get in now that I replaying all of them. I kind of feel like this is where they’re jumping the shark and following the herd by making it ra pay to win game. I see in the comments that they keep saying that it’s made to be able to win without paying additional money which can be substantial if you look at the price of everything. But I don’t believe this to be the case at least not to the point where it’s any fun. Stick with the other games and hopefully if they make another one they’ll go back to the old ways. Or if they don’t, it’s a great opportunity for someone to come and take their cheese.
  • Improvements ruined by microtransactions Dec 23, 2018

    By Dbcombo
    I enjoyed the customization of being able to choose from a variety of turrets. It was also nice to see all the “new” enemies and “new” turrets. Being the fourth installment in the series has hurt the gameplay a bit. It feel exactly like the previous 3. Most of the towers and their abilities were just Ctrl C + Ctrl P. I can’t judge most of the heros since they cost much more than the game itself. I also refuse to purchase the towers that are locked behind real world currency. I understand the point of the company is to earn a profit, but why have a $6 app with +$50 of in app purchases. I don’t feel like there is enough replay ability to warrant spending $50. My synopsis, if the game itself is on sale it is a must have to kill some time. Be cautious before blowing a nice dinner for a dragon and some turrets.
  • A step backwards Dec 25, 2018

    By pjbarto17
    I got excited when I saw this game in the App Store, as I played the original kingdom rush through multiple times and loved it. Sadly, even after paying the $4.99 to buy this game I find out that most of the advertised new heroes and towers require additional purchases. What’s worse is that the towers and heroes are less interesting than before, with less options for customization leaving me with a game only reminiscent of the original game I loved. After playing through three levels I already found the game the be monotonous, as if I was playing the same levels over and over. I would enjoy the game more if there was more effort put into the towers and leveling but sadly this game is just a cheap knock off of the original, made only to extort more money.

    I’m such a fan. I’ve played the 3 other games before this one and really have had years of enjoyment. The colors and scale seem gaudy and almost more childlike now. Really love and appreciate the art even if the color scale is wrong. The lag time between entering and leaving a level is tortuous and having to look at those red eyes fill up so slowly is painful... maybe they could change that screen into a complex cool geometry or labyrinth image instead? It would also be nice if we had the option to be the good guy or bad. It’s fun having those bag guy options for sure but the underlying message is “the bad guy in charge isn’t the worst bad guy. There could be worse, but not a good guy either”. Interesting? Some of the tower options like the treants, melting furnace, and goblirangs seem really lame and ineffective. I want to like it but it’s not happening yet. It doesn’t feel pleasing to look at and I think that’s the worst thing for me. It’s great that they have upgrades adding more but it’s only 3 levels and then you’re done. How about 2 or 3 endless levels to play? At least I still have the first 3 games! I really hope you guys can fix it in the next version. Good luck!🕉🙏🏼
  • Towers nerfed. Enemies buffed. Pay to succeed. Cash grab. Dec 31, 2018

    Long time player. Beat all your games on multiple platforms. Spent extra money on them even. It was earned by making good fair and balanced game. But this trash is stupid. All the the original towers have been nerfed into the ground. All the enemies have been buffed to insane degrees. Special enemies where no problem in later levels. But special enemies every level after 2? I can barely stave off normal units with the Dragon helping. Let alone enemies who can’t be hurt except for two seconds after dashing down the map. Or enemies that just buff on stalling units. Or healers. Or blah blah. This isn’t ok early game. It’s way to difficult and just encourages spending on the ONE TIME USE items in the store. You guys didn’t need this slummy tactic. I don’t mind Bloons TD 3 Dollars for a always double money because it’s always there. One time use items are a stupid cash grab with the massive difficulty spike. I’m sorry I ever supported this company.

    I love(d) kingdom rush. I have played every game in this series and each game just gets worse and worse with the pay to win bs and unlockables. This one is just the nail in the coffin for me. To unlock everything (towers and heroes) you would need to spend around $60! For a mobile game?? That’s insane. I seriously regret the money I spent on the one Hero I bought, but at the time I bought him I still loved this franchise and wanted to support the developers but now I wish I looked past my nostalgia. Don’t waste your time or money. It’s not worth it. I really wish I could just pay for the game out right and have everything at the start, but of course you can’t because all mobile games care about are hooking those whales and to hell with everyone else that would actually enjoy the game. Goodbye Kingdom Rush. I’m going to miss you. I hope enjoy your new life as a whaling company.
  • Macrotransactions Galore Nov 17, 2019

    For a game I paid $5 for, I feel like there should not have been more than one or two additional purchases in the game for additional dlc or something along those lines. Not only do I get a game where there is an additional currency you can buy to use on one-time-use magic cards, but MORE THAN HALF of the heros and towers are locked behind paywalls. These are the strongest heros and towers in the game, and you literally have to PAY money to get them. No way to earn them with gameplay. Do you want a $5 game where you have to pay an additional $30 to get all the paywalled towers and heros? If yes, this is the game for you. If not, don’t waste your money on this pay-to-win macrotransaction-riddled game. I’ll be requesting my money back, and I hope this review helped you avoid wasting any money on this horrendous cash grab some people call a “game”.

    I really enjoyed the previous Kingdom Rush games, but this (along with Iron Marines) is not for me. 1. The voices are annoying, repetitive and not entertaining. Is a skeleton screeching, “Got milk?” funny to you? If so, you’ll love it. 2. The towers lack any sort of “oomph’ when they connect. None of the attacks feel like they do much damage and make the game feel more like a grind than a powerful (or even interesting) battle. 3. It’s just not fun. I played through 36 stars when it was first released and deleted it. Today I saw that there was an update so I redownloaded and tried again. I turned off the sound affects after a couple of minutes (going back to point 1) and deleted the game after completing the first level of the new area. Also, Apple Pencil support is flaky, inconsistently responding to taps. I did enjoy their recent Apple Arcade contribution a bit more, but I’m unlikely to buy another Kingdom Rush game. The only thing I would buy (and which Ironhide will never release because it wouldn’t maximize micro transactions enough) would be a remaster of Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush Origins. Just update the graphics, make it available on all Apple Silicon devices and sell it fully unlocked for $50.
