Kingdom Rush Origins

Tower defense games are about as old as ancient cave paintings. OK, that's an exaggeration, but it heeds the point that the genre is arguably one of the OG mechanic sets in video games. Kingdom Rush Origins is part of a series that's paid homage to the modes and methods of tower defense gameplay. That fact is something other than what would inspire players to try for the first time.

There are 1000s of similar titles out there. So what makes Kingdom Rush Origins any different from its competitors? First and foremost, its predecessor got a reputation for excellence. Players and critics lauded how the classical mechanics of tower defense were taken to new levels in gameplay and aesthetics. So that leaves the question, will the next entry be able to fill those big boots?

Thy Kingdom Rush

Anybody giving the series a try for the first time would immediately understand why the predecessor received so much praise. It's a beautiful fantasy-raveled environment paired with aesthetically-appropriate combat. But the most critical factor? The game doesn't stray away from the classic tower defense gameplay, making it instantly accessible for almost any keen player.

So what differs between the original game and Kingdom Rush Origins? The title is set before the predecessor's events, creating an elven narrative that attempts to enhance the franchise's lore. The vast number of new units, environments, skills, upgrades, and foes delivers on that promise of taking the series to the next level. The strong story, paired with the relevant phases of combat, brings the thrills and spills both casual and hardcore gamers seek.

The beauty of Kingdom Rush Origins comes in its simplicity. It's a game that inherits tower defense mechanics similar to any other genre title. However, the developers have done an excellent job of making gameplay exciting. That's partly thanks to the aesthetics, fluid animations, colorful environments, good balance, and exciting, addicting combat.

The third time's the charm with Kingdom Rush Origins. Here is a well-designed tower defense game that ticks all the boxes regarding accessibility and reward. It's hard to argue that there are any inherent flaws to gameplay, considering most previous concerns have been patched up. This game holds the torch for all modern incarnations of the genre.

The Definitive Origins

Giving the game the title of 'Origins' would make perfect sense, refining classical tower defense mechanics and providing a root for the narrative. Kingdom Rush Origins is a winner in every sense of the word. It looks great, feels great, and provides hours of entertainment for casual gamers and a path for hardcore players to enjoy. It's right up there with monumental titles like Bloons TD 6.


So are there any downsides to be aware of in the game? Like all tower defense games, winning strategies can get repetitive if you get the formula right. However, there's enough narrative and visual flair in Kingdom Rush Origins that you won't notice too much. This game is worth playing, regardless of your preferred genre niche.
