About

HUMANITY HAS BEEN BROUGHT BACK INTO THE DARK AGES, BUT REMNANTS OF A ONCE HIGHLY ADVANCED CIVILIZATION STILL EXIST.
In a world where control over ancient technologies means power, a ruthless Empire has arisen. You play as a team of Ruinhunters searching for the one thing that can save their village - a legendary weapon known as Aegis.
Explore, build, & defend in this 2D platformer that blends Metroidvania style combat with Tower Defense strategy.
EXPLORE
Discover the world of Elam, a beautiful yet dangerous place lost to time. Brimming with dangerous beasts, forgotten ruins, and powerful relics, Elam is brought to life with uniquely handpainted pixel art style.
BUILD
Level up your items and weapons in the shop to take in bigger and badder enemies.
Adjust your strategy on the fly with the "Fusion Build" system. Try fusing different combinations of items together to change your defensive setup.
FIGHT
Fight off enemies from all sides - but you won't have to do it alone. With Dynamic Character Swapping you'll need to switch between multiple characters on the battlefield, position your characters carefully, and utilize their passive abilities effectively to survive.
Various Tower Defense Scenarios - Defending one point can be hard enough but that's just the beginning. As the game progresses, you'll need to defend moving targets, targets that have dynamic abilities like activating doors/weapons, and even targets that don't want to be protected...
FEATURES
Play through the game in either single-player or split-screen coop.
Build blocks, turrets, and traps to defend an area from hordes of enemies in our Tower-Defense inspired combat.
Learn the secrets of the ancients and the origin of an empire in our extensive story mode.

Aegis Defenders reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Aegis Defenders is definitely meant to be a KOOP game, you can also play in the Single Player, but this is associated with a lot more Effort. The Story is well told, but some Fights were unnecessarily prolonged in the Long run. You should also play with Controllers because it is simply not designed for Keyboard. The Idea of a 2D Sidescroler with towerdeit elements was not bad in itself, but the Implementation was not necessarily optimally successful. The Use of special skills is Standard on L while Attacking E. Another important Point when It comes to Controlling is jumping, Firing-doesn't work particularly well. The Design of the Monsters, however, was original.

Aegis Defenders is a Puzzle platform with Tower-defender Mechanics Gameplay The Frame Gameplay is that of a classic Puzleplattformers. You control the Party, which consists of up to four People, through various, completed, levels. Here it is necessary to use the up to two Weapons of each member and their Special Skill in a Meaningful way in order to reach the end of the Level, where the "Tower Defender part" begins. At the End of each Level, a Power Challenge Awaits in the Form of a tower-defenso scenario. Here it is necessary to ward off the wave-waving monsters by the Weapons of the Group and by self-built Fortifications. Fortifications Are created by one or more Team Members erecting colored Blocks and combining them. These Blocks themselves also have a Function like slowing Down opponents, but become stronger when others are added. Thus, from a yellow Block, the addition of another yellow Block creates a Gun Tower that shoots horizontally. If you add a blue one to the state, a Gun is created that shoots horizontally and diagonally. This Allows the Player to build a large Number of fortifications by combining four different blocks. Between the Levels you have the Opportunity to upgrade your Stings in the Warehouse and buy better Weapons or other Bonuses. Even Bonus levels can be addressed. Shopping is done with Chips that sometimes drop defeated Monsters and Upgrade Fortifications with Ruin Hunter points that you get when you hold Artifacts. Each Level is repeatable and has some optional Goals that can be addressed at any time, bringing in a Lot of Chips and Ruin Hunter Points. Graphics, Soundtrack The Graphics are dominated by image-hopping Pixeloptics. The Characters ' Bus Shots, however, look drawn. Sure I'm not myself. The Soundtrack is very atmospheric. Summary Pro Many different Defenses and opponent types Platform And Towerdefender Elements well implemented Difficulty level during the Game changeable Contra: For my Part no Negative Points to report conclusion: Aegisdefenders is aimed At For Lovers of Puzleplatformern and Tower Feathers. If you enjoy Both Genres, I recommend buying it without restriction. Those Who prefer to use bruteforce to make everything too clump and balling should look for a different Pastime.
