Core Defense blends tower defense, deck-building and roguelike gameplay as you attempt to protect your core from 50 waves of enemies.
In Core Defense your aim is to protect your core and survive against 50 increasingly challenging waves of enemy attacks. It’s a “Mazing” style tower defense game, so you can place towers to build your own paths for the enemies to move through (rather than place turrets at the side of predefined ones).
There are lots of different tower and abilities, which you can choose a loadout of seven from at the start of each game. Towers are upgradeable and at the end of each round you can choose from a selection of random rewards to aid your fight.
It’s a promising game that feels like an evolution of the classic Desktop Tower Defense game that helped spawn the tower defense genre in the first place. Sessions take around an hour and it offers plenty of replayability as you try our new builds.
