Royal Defenders is easy to sum up. This tower defense title is all about a royal mission of defending the princess from kidnappers.
Its story starts with the classic rescue-the-princess episode and then takes a nice turn when dispatched warriors complete their initial mission. Instead of returning to the castle, the wild pirate-style princess drags her defenders into more dangerous situations as she waywardly choose to chase and confront her kidnappers. It seems that the royal mission sees no end.
Following the storyline, you will enter tons of fun levels protecting the princes from enemy hordes. No level plays like the other due to the varying enemies and the map design. From flying bat-pigs to slime-spurting vomitoads to electrifying astrofish, you will take on a variety of creatures that behave and attack differently with their own personality. And along the multiple paths or ponds, different monsters will either run or swim to reach to the princess. And your job is to stop them.
The hero types are as diverse in Royal Defenders and as creatively quirky. In your fighting squad, you will have the Knightpuss that swings a ball with a nail in it to smash enemies, the man in a yellow chicken costume that scratches enemies to pulp with his flashy chicken fist and the fancy magician who throws sharp cards to inflict damage. And there is also the white-beard healer, the tank-style hammer slamer and the muscle man wielding with an axe and so on.
It costs coins to place and level-up defenders in a battle. You have a small amount in the first wave but can earn more by killing enemies. Because of the limited amount, you have to put your coins into good use. Will you gain higher winning odds by leveling up a warrior in service or bringing a new one to the battlefield? And in which way the limited coins are better spent in the first wave – let the high-cost long-range magician fight single-handedly or send two attackers with a healer? Try out your plan – the experiment in battle is fun.
Royal Defenders is structured on the established pattern of this genre. After you battle many levels, the excitement of the battle is refreshed with newly appeared enemies and defenders plus the different play field but at the same time unavoidably dwindled with the growing familiarity and repetitiveness. To reduce the negative effect, the game allows you to quicken the game pace by simply hitting the acceleration button and rush enemies between waves directly.
When a battle is successfully closed, you get either training points or a hero coin. Training points are used to increase your defenders’ certain traits like skill use, attack power or recovery rate, while the hero coin gives you a chance to get a new defender. There is another resource, the premium gems that work the similar way as hero coins but give you exclusively powerful fighters.
Royal Defenders has a blandly familiar formula like many TD titles out there and provides solid contents to keep you entertained for hours. It does not bring anything new to the mix but adds a clamorously playful style to the gameplay. If you are into wacky characters, explosive scenes and casual strategy, you may like Royal Defenders.
