We have seen so many tower defense games released on various platforms. It’s really hard to get any delightful surprises in games of this genre. But we kind-of have gotten a refreshing feel in a TD game called Overtime Rush newly launched on the App Store.
Overtime Rush firstly impresses us with its beautiful and crisp icy world. In-game monsters all come skating on the frozen river, which does not impact the core game mechanics much but offers a funny and fresh personality to the established pattern. Overtime Rush is traditionally level-based. But every level is an endless waves challenge. Continuously stronger enemies will keep coming until you lose all 20 lives. The longer you survive, the higher you score.
We skipped the explicit tutorial of the first level and recorded the second. The gameplay footage shows a complete defensive game revealing several monster types, four types of towers and useful boosters like mines and bombs. It’s great fun. Enjoy! [NZ App Store]
