Where the AppStore is plagued with fantasy based games, it’s the one genre that I won’t tire of (famous last words–I thought that about zombie games a few years ago). Who doesn’t love defeating mythological creatures?! Anyways the latest game to feed my fantasy addiction is Kill Devils.
In Kill Devils you’re going up against orcs, werewolves, rock monsters, among so many other enemies,…yes even dragons, who want nothing more than to destroy your castle wall. It’s up to you to take control of your magical crystal on the castle and aim the magical projectiles from the crystal in order to destroy them before they break down your walls.
At first all of this seams to be a standard action tower-defense game but Kill Devils includes another flavor that makes this worth while. The upgrading system. Everything from the types of magic coming out from your crystal, powerful magic spells, and increasing the strength of your castle walls is all present. This upgrade system can be highly addictive where having to replay a few stages to earn enough coin to purchase an additional upgrade rarely gets tiresome. If you want to advance faster you can always throw down some real coin to advance faster…but you saw that coming.
The Bottom Line: 8/10 (Great)
Kill Devils is one of the few great Freemium games to come out that remains to feel fresh over long gaming sessions. If you’re a tower defense junkie this is absolutely worth a look.
