    Kingdom Rush Origins is the best yet, as it offers engrossing enjoyment that is an absolute must have iOS experience. That’s whether you’re a Kingdom Rush fan, or entirely new to the series.

    With minor improvements, better map design, and a wonderful aesthetic, Kingdom Rush Origins is the best entry in the series yet.

    If you've loved Kingdom Rush in the past, you'll keep on loving it, but if you feel like you've 'been there, done that' you may want to skip this iteration in the series.

    I’m hopeful to see Ironhide stretch its talented creative muscles a little more within the bounds of its tower defense expertise, but for the time being, Origins continues a successful structure without any stumbles.

    It's more of the same again, but that's really no bad thing at all.

    A polished and brilliantly balanced tower defence game, Kingdom Rush Origins has enough content to keep you entertained for hours.

    Kingdom Rush Origins is still a very fun tower defense title, even if it's no different from the last game.

    This is a really great successor to the first two Kingdom Rush games, although no experience is necessary to begin enjoying this one. As aThis is a really great successor to the first two Kingdom Rush games, although no experience is necessary to begin enjoying this one. As a massive fan of Tower Defence, this game gets almost everything right. Well judged enemies, great design, lots of humour and heaps of gameplay (at least 40 hours for my first run-through). There are paid upgrades although you can complete the whole game without purchasing them (although some levels definitely take a few tries.) If you like Tower Defence games then this one is a must.

It is pay-to-win...you gain upgrades by micro-transactions, which means the game sucks unless you pay it to not suck. You can "technically" play the game with only the basic upgrades, but what good is that? This game is pathetic, unless you pay it to not suck. This review is coming from a huge fan of the original games, and a proud owner of the Steam version of the original (which you could buy completely for one price)...which brings up another issue. The developers decided to go mobile-phone only. No more PC game...which would be a bad thing if the game wasn't a phony F2P rip-off (so no big loss to PC owners). 0/10. Horrible pay scheme=horrible game. Expand
