Kingdom Rush: Frontiers Launches Today

Ironhide Game Studios’ long awaited sequel to Kingdom Rush is here! In Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, you get all the features from the first game that made it so awesome with a bunch of more content added in. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the title, Kingdom Rush is a Tower Defense game that started out as a web based game.

Alvaro Azofra, the Co-founder of Ironhide, had this to say about their new game:

“To one-up our own tower-defense formula, we basically took the original Kingdom Rush, shoved it into a bottle of dragon’s blood, gorilla hair, and arrowheads… then we shook things up and popped the cork. What spilled out is this bad-ass thing we call Kingdom Rush Frontiers.”

These  are the new features gamers can expect to see from Frontiers:

  • Eight New Special Towers – Blitz the battlefield with new units like spooky necromancers, dead-eye crossbow-women, and even earthquake machines… shake things up, literally.
  • Exotic New Levels – Fortify the frontier across three new terrains in desolate deserts, lush jungles, and the caves of the underworld ruled by the great Dark Lord. Oh, you thought spelunking was already scary enough?
  • A Whole New Horde – Slice, sizzle, and stomp more than 40 would-be assailants, from cursed mummies to mystical genies. What were you expecting? More goblins? That’s so 2012.
  • A Heap of Heroes – Throw down the gauntlet with nine fully customizable heroes like Grawl the stone giant and Captain Blackthorne the renegade corsair. Yo-ho!
  • Bells and Whistles… and Giant Sandworms – If you like widgets and doo-dads, well… we’re chock full of ‘em. Seventy achievements, unlockable weapons, and even a Dragon that will set your enemies on fire – all that and plenty more.

Kingdom Rush: Frontier is available for the iPhone and iPod for $2.99, and the iPad for $4.99 on the iTunes App Store. I’ve played some of it already and I’m loving it so far.
