An experimental game that tries to combine first-person shooters and tower defense genres. Players take control of the elite soldier Skye, who was sent to defend her hometown from a crowd of unknown alien-monsters.

At the beginning of each map, the player has time to place the attacking towers and build a maze along which hostile creatures will move. The main task is to protect the core, which can withstand a small amount of damage.

There are 8 types of the tower, which differ in functionality: attack towers, towers-teleports, and towers, which affect the characteristics of enemies. Also, the player can inflict damage with his weapon. there are 10 types of enemies in the game, 3 of which are and will require a special tower to defeat. At the end of each mission, a “fat” enemy appears on the map - the boss, which deals more damage to the core and which is harder to beat. Multiplayer is not available in this installment of the series.

      A very beautiful game, in a modern universe style portal. A complete Tower Defense, long and very difficult. Various defenses for multiple strategies. By far the best in its category. I recommend for any TD enthusiast.

      Excellent is little to say Manages in a perfect way a futuristic world with neon tones The combined gameplay of the FPS with the modilidad of strategy games like Tower Defense, not only lets you decide which towers to use, build and improve them, but you Allows you to do the same with your weapons and be on the battlefield with the towers Very good, really

      A play that will not end up boring, it has online mode to play with other people, try that the hordes do not reach your core but you will be lost, put blocks and machines in shape as you decide to annihilate the ordas of aliens who want to destroy your Nu Cleo... Buy it add me and play with me you will have more fun with Skype and other people I give a 8/10

      Sanctum is a very particular Tower Defense this me to delighted, it is easy enough to play but at each wave the enemies are fortified, it has both options of improvement of weapons, and towers up to level 6. Difficult to finish a map with 100% of your health, recommended for those who like the shoters and some puzzle because the obstacles must be built strategically. 10/10

      Tower Defense AND SHOOTER, neeh can't do that, can it? But that is possible! Those who like these two Genres will love this Game. You can strain your gray Cells and Switch off and Ballers in between. There is even a http://store.steampowered.com/app/210770. This has also become even more interesting thanks to the Hexadonal base towers. However, You should buy the DLC at Part 1 and Part 2, otherwise you will miss a bit of the Game.

      Sanctum is arguably the first Hybrid of FPS and Tower Defense. The Defenses here can only be built on certain Squares of the Map. The Player is not hurt by the attacking Aliens who constantly march to the Core. The Player's Damage output is essential to defeat all Opponents. The Level of Difficulty in Multiplayer was too severe for us, so we recommend playing on Easy. Part 1: https://youtu.be/7bWgoTGCfBo

      The truth I bought this game by the premise that presents, but it is not what he paints in the trailer (unless you have many friends with the same game and spend all his life with ' the) since the multiplayer is after 2 games (which by the way are long balls) You get bored, besides the community that plays it is almost nonexistent. As'i that as mentioned all your friends have this game and play it more than anything else I recommend you play it because with friends very cool.
