This must be the best free game on the app store, hands down. The quality, the lack of greedy practices most free games employ these days, just the sheer fun I've had by playing this lovely little game - is astounding. Keep you eyes on Ironhide. I've got the feeling this is only the start. I can't wait to try out their other titles as well. Full Review
December 11, 2017
One of the best tower defense games ever. Also the first of this type, I believe! I've tried the other knock offs but none can compare to Ironhide's. Been playing since it was just a flash game like a decade ago. Still playing their games today! Full Review

It can sometimes be finicky about placing militia troops, I'll tap to place but have to tap a second time before it registers. It is entertaining and challenging, without being frustrating. I've been playing for a couple of weeks now and plan to play through the game. I'll provide updates if anything changes my opinion. Full Review
August 29, 2017
I really enjoy the game but feel you should add more hero's we can actually unlock instead of having to buy with cash. And you should add maybe air units for defense. And more towers like a inferno that deals more damage over time. And more more ground units to help protect with the knights. Full Review
September 9, 2017
I like this little challenging game. It takes some restarts once in a while but it's define toy in my top 5 tower defense games. I'd say number 2 right after Bloons TD5 Full Review
December 7, 2017
Slightly non-traditional tower defense with cool and varied upgrades for towers. It gives you room to play with your own style but tests the limits of your battle plans. Genuinely tactically challenging - they don't just scale the enemy's health to make it harder. Differing enemies and paths force you to alter your strategy to win each map but don't prevent you playing the way you want to play. I highly recommend this game. Between all the maps and challenge modes specific to each I have struggled to put it down. Full Review
August 15, 2017
No ones going to mention that it needs a fast forward option. Also units ignore each other which is annoying. Also the ranged hero needs more range she wont shoot unless there 5 feet away. This is a classic to me and with slight tweaks it can be a 5. Full Review
October 7, 2017
Undoubtedly the best tower defense on mobile, or maybe ever. I played it a ton on my iPad years ago along with their other games. They are the masters of tower defense games, and are now even working their way into RTS. You do not need to spend a single cent on this game if you don't want to. I played all of their games on the hardest difficulty without paying anything, besides purchasing the heroes purely to support the developer. Full Review

I'll add to the chorus of positive feedback for this game and say that it is absolutely amazing! For anyone who loves tower defense games, this is a must-play. The game is crazily challenging and will keep you hooked for a long time. After you beat the main story, there are even harder elite levels that you can try out, as well as a never-ending wave level. I personally found this game so addictive I'd play it for hours on end. It's a total time killer, that's for sure. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay requires a lot of strategizing (and sometimes trial and error) to beat. My only wish is that there was a fast-forward button that could be toggled on and off, like in Plants vs Zombies 2, as it would save a lot of time. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this game, it is so much fun! Full Review

I love the game itself but there is a bug where I can't play the game. When I open up the app it shows a black screen and the music plays but it shows nothing. I have tried reinstalling, waiting and none have worked. If this was fixed I would most certainly give this five stars. Full Review
September 22, 2017
I think the game is amazing but I have found a loop hole in the in app purchases. Lucky patcher has caused the in app purchases to fail thus giving me the diamonds while have no money be taken from my account. I hope this gets patched in the future. Other then that the game is awsome. Full Review
August 11, 2017
This is a great tower defense game. but unfortunately it cheats to make the game harder. Enemies sometimes ignore units blocking their path and damage is sometimes ignored when enemies are close to your base. This is incredibly frustrating on later missions when clearing a stage involves an investment of time. I don't like losing my effort because the coders decided to change the rules of the game mid stage. Full Review
August 30, 2017
An amazing free game, I've played the paid ones uptill now. But this version is all in all a really complete game with barely in app purchases. Warning : you will end up buying all the games from this developer if you end up playing this. Full Review
September 17, 2017
Great tower defense game. A few things;-Pause button is in a bad spot for the Curved Edge on the Galaxy phones. - non elite campaign should be a little longer so it's easier to get to 50 stars for the elite levels. I'll definitely be looking at the sequels! Full Review
September 23, 2017
Best tower defense game, and one of the best free games on the app store... It not only has cool graphics, it also has really interesting stories. There are little details put in the game that make the difference, and the storyline is kind of fun too. Full Review
October 26, 2017
Why would you remove the option for free gold by watching ads? If I want to watch 15 videos instead of paying, I should be able to. Sometimes I can watch 20; sometimes none. It's a major flaw and makes no sense. Also has many glitches where it cheats you. If I spend 999 coins in a bomb to kill everything, I expect it to do just that. Deleting. Full Review
August 20, 2017
I love all 3 games. I beaten them all. I had no issues with anything. I hope you guys are in the making of more kingdom rush games. I've seen and played duplicates of other games just like kingdom rush. But they don't compare the fun factor and defence battles or towers that KR has. Nice work guys. Full Review
September 29, 2017
This game is awesome. I love it when you build a tower, the character will say something. The only thing im upset is that the elite levels are so hard. I've tried a lot of times, but I still could not pass it. Other then that, I'd give this game 5 stars! Full Review
August 20, 2017
Great game! Perfect timekiller, just wish you could have the option to speed up the waves during game play, it can get a little tedious waiting through a round if you run out of things to do. Full Review
September 14, 2017
PLEASE FIX THIS every time another sound plays or is suppose to play in the game, it automatically pauses my Pandora in the background. So I can't listen to my Pandora well playing which is a real bummer. Please try to fix this, other than that I absolutely love this game. Full Review

I think it is very fun and challenging but it needs more levels I completed the whole game in 2 days. The troops and enemy battles are annoying because they don't attack enemies right in front of them or the enemies just run past them like they are not there but other than that it's very fun to play and a great time killer 4 stars!!!!! Full Review
August 3, 2017
Fun game, probably one of the best tower defense games I've played. Once you've beaten all the levels on Campaign mode and gained three stars, you can play them again on Heroic and Iron modes and gain an extra star from each. Then there are new elite stages as well. Also every battle can be played on easy, normal or hard difficulty (but you don't get anything extra for doing so). Use the stars to buy upgrades for your troops. Finally you can use gems to buy extras like bombs and hearts. Highly recommended especially if you enjoy tower defense games. Full Review

Level 6 (The Citadel) is literally impossible due to the number and types of enemies you have to fight. You need tons of barracks to hold enemies in place, fully-upgraded arrow towers to deal with normal enemies, and fully-upgraded mage towers to deal with all the dark knights. You just CANNOT deal with all these threats. I've tried for two days now, even resorting to online strategies, nothing works. Full Review
November 8, 2017
Best TD game I've ever played. Multiple choice of towers and upgrades. Short but great campaign and story. Humour and hidden Easter eggs within the game. Hardest difficulty is actually difficult on most levels but can do them with good strategies. Cool heroes, some p2p but really not needed. Recommend highly. Full Review
October 13, 2017
I would like to tell you somethings that you dont know about, but honestly what can i say? It is simply one of the best mobile games of all time and even in the tower defense genre! Just take my word for it, if you are looking for a good tower defense game then look no futher! And trust me it is worth the 2 dollars easy! Full Review
September 24, 2017
Really fun game. Been playing on my pc for years. Finally glad I can play on my phone. Only problem is when I exit the game wave to answer a call, when I come back I have to start over. Fix that and 5 stars straight. Really great game Full Review
October 30, 2017
Nice game, very addictive. Graphics are nice and you definitely have to think your strategies. However, one point has to be fixed, I can't listen to my music while playing !! This is very annoying. Full Review
August 23, 2017
1 star just because that stupid clicky stuff is annoying. It reminds me of the resident evil games....its so annoying and dumb to sit there and click a million times. Seriously. It is stupid. Also needs a speed up option Full Review
December 12, 2017
Best small rts I ever played.. and free lol amazing work.. sadly I already payed once passed the whole game on pc but I can't get my heroes here? Full Review
December 6, 2017
I love this game. Its alot like chess. How do i strategically place my towers to overwhelm my enemies, and do i have enough for aerial and ground attacks. Full Review
October 20, 2017
Help. I have an issue with the game. Whenever I run spotify and kingdom rush at the sametime, spotify kept pausing! Is there a fix on this? I have the latest version for both spotify and kingdom rush. Im running the game on LG V20. Loving the game! :) Full Review
August 19, 2017
This is such a great game I have ever played! I am really very happy with this game. All three parts of the game (frontiers & origins) are great But this app is free on app store so I recommend this game to be played when you feel bored. If one would have this game then he or she knows that what fun is! Full Review
August 11, 2017
Game loads and plays fine, until you get to the Forsaken Valley. After the third battle the game freezes up entirely. Have to use Task Manager to close it. Using a Samsung Galaxy S5 running Android 5.x, and making sure to close all other apps before running the game. Possibly uninstalling if this problem continues to persist... Even after updating (10/17/2015) game still crashes nonstop. Uninstalling. / Update 08-11-2017 Installed on Galaxy S8 Plus and it locks up nonstop on Citadel (4th base). Uninstalling once more. Tired of trying to play only for it to crash every time Full Review
August 15, 2017
Very horrible gameplay, if you buy coins then only complete levels... I think this game design for in-app purchases... ok Full Review
October 15, 2017
Very good game. Only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the fact that some of the things in the mobile game have been changed from the original computer/flash version and I guess that triggers the purist in me. They're not major changes but they do affect game play a little. Most notably in level 9. Can't get priest to man the one tower on the left side of the bridge. Full Review
October 29, 2017
Ever since I saw it on the armor games website, I was instantly addicted. I am the proud owner of all the Kingdom Rush mobile games, well at least for my device. Overall a fine series with lots of work put into the games, and one of the best series of games in my opinion. Full Review
November 27, 2017
Played this years ago on Kongregate and loved it then too. The option to spend money is there but not forced upon you. Broad range of challenge levels; some stages are easy and some, especially on heroic or iron mode, are near-impossible. Great tower defense game. Full Review
September 27, 2017
I keep losing my gems. Everytime i come back and play i have less gems than before. Probably they do it so you can pay more money and buy gems. Full Review
November 9, 2017
Great game but.. Could do with a link to their support team... In the game, when playing the heroic challenge... Even when u have an upgrade that says 10% reduction in tower construction, that effect is not seen... The game instructions appear incorrect or lacking in this case.. Full Review
