Be clever, be quick – and show no mercy.

Beyond the veil of this world, there is a chain of strongholds that were once built to keep the horrors of the void at bay. And now the monsters are returning from the depths to conquer and kill: only you can stop the monsters before they break through to the everyday world. Choose your hero and defend the silent forts: use, rebuild and improve those ancient traps and magical machines.

Deathtrap is a Tower Defense game with strong action-RPG elements, a game of vicious tricks, killing machines, rotating blades and splattering blood.

Main features

  • A truly unique mixture of Tower Defense games and action-RPGs.
  • You and your traps against the whole otherworld: Defeat the hordes in an incredible single player campaign! You are on your own, so it's a good thing that you have deadly devices and powerful spells.
  • Team up with other heroes and save the world together...: Cooperative campaign with specially designed maps.
  • …or you can just show your friends your true personality: Players can set against each other in this game mode, where the defender prepares traps and defensive tactics, while the attacker has the ability to possess and control directly any creature in his or her army and employs skills to weaken the opponent or boost the invaders.
  • Become the Master of the Deathtrap Strongholds: The integrated Map Editor and Monster Editor allows the creation of the user generated content; moreover, you can also share your deadly, cunning levels and challenging mini-campaigns with others.
  • Knee-deep in blood: in the goriest Tower Defense game ever you can finally teach those monsters a savage lesson. Deathtrap gives you destructive spells and deadly mechanisms to smash, freeze, burn the creatures of nightmare, only to mention a few ways that can turn them into tiny, bloody pieces.
  • Rewards of curiosity: Find the hidden corners on the maps and hunt down the neutral creatures hiding away from the battle for exclusive loot; you can also solve rewarding side quests as well.
  • Become one of the specialists: Choose from 3 diverse classes (Mercenary, Sorceress, and Marksman); each class offers different tactics, skills and powers to dispose your enemies.
  • With experience comes wisdom – and brand new ways to deal with those annoying invaders: The extended and detailed character development offers you 100 levels to achieve and more than 50 Skills per class.
  • Weapons of destruction have never been so much fun: fend off the invaders with 25 deadly traps and more than 150 trap upgrades, not to mention the very special upgrades, which are tied to challenging and fun achievements.
  • Enter a truly grim fantasy netherworld: the Ink, the mysterious otherworld in the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing games has hidden regions and ancient secrets; now can face what is waiting in those depths.
  • Gear up and stand your ground: The detailed equipment mechanics and the comprehensive loot system make your inventory highly customizable.
  • A wide variety of horrors to defeat: Invaders come in 3 races and more than 40 different types; the countless combination of monster abilities will make the invading swarms even more colorful.

Deathtrap reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
I was reluctant to take it, but.. Being a fan of H&S, I had to be interested in a little more ready for this game. a nice mix of Tower Defence, the game being built on this base, but with a lot of aspect of a H&S, I explain:-the first goal being to repel the waves of enemies that will hurry, cost that cost, to join the exit portal until the destroy, and for that a whole bunch of Arsenal will be put at your disposal in order to prevent them: * traps, many traps, all different, that you can unlock and upgrade as you move forward in the game. Whether it is by taking the level, because Yes, your character will take the braid throughout your adventure, or by passing on a higher level of difficulty, which being at the level of three, easy, medium and difficult. These traps you place at strategic places preset by the game. There are five categories of traps, all grouping different traps, which will really help you define your attack strategy. The whole divided into 3 tiered that you will unlock in the course of your advance.. In short a lot of upgrades and possibilities. * Stuff, Yes, because as previously said, this is the H&S side of the game, because each time you finish a level, you will be able to recover loot (random of course) that increase your stats of your character. Here everything is indicated, your rate of CRIT, your damage, your resistance, your drop rate, in short I will not detail everything, we could compare it to the stats of D3 to give you an idea.. You have an inventory to store your loot, a shop (equivalent to a merchant) that will sell you sometimes exceptional goods for finance (the gold of the game recovered on mobs). We really find all the basics of a good H&S basically to debug your enemies. you will have the possibility to choose between three different classes, the good old basic namely a CAC, a magic distance and a physical range. A lot of basic skills, unlockable by 0/10/20, which will actually allow you to perosnnalize your game style with a pile of skill, all upgradable. I was pleasantly surprised by this game, which mixes strategy and chance for the loot side, we spend time on it, in the meantime, time flies! The difficulty is at the rendezvous, different games will be offered, a campaign, a scenario mode and an endless mode.-the campaign being the frame of the game with its levels of difficulties.. -The scenario that will allow you to add to it the difficulty you want, the more it is growing, the better your reward whether it be XP level or loot. (level 20 required)-endless mode, will you be the best? will you be at the top of the leaderboard? ... In short, we find it for a 12 ' zaine euros on some site, El les Vaux widely.. The +: graphically pretty, clear, a well-dosed fix, a whole bunch of things to unlock, the nice mix between a TWD and a H&S, different game modes, lots of basic skill, really allowing you to personalize your game style. A workshop, so really a large variety of maps made by the community, a rather consistent lifespan.. The-: some bug of minor translations, which will certainly be corrected thereafter. A choice of class limited, in the hope to have more choices later. We have for his money, we have a good time, frankly, do not hesitate if you are a fan of this mix.
