Selknam Defense reviews and comments

Funny TD game. I like it. Buy it in a deal and have fun. The grafic is not the best, but ok for a cheap indie game. I am playing v1.3.1. Dont forget to build many distance "towers" and some special "towers" like poison, stun and slow to assist them. This should stop the exploding enemies soon enough.

Hiho @ll, I can only recommend this beautiful Real-time strategy game as it is very awesome and brings with it a lot of Fun, but just watch my Video, I think this one says the most: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lswtbPxmhn8&index=1&list=PLUgcJCj3LHdbnk3_gOKUlrWlJeySOKRVx With Friendly Greetings, SnQQby

Well, what should I say big to such a TD Game. It may just be worth the £0.99s I paid, kept very short and simple. It's not a compact TD Game and is more reminiscent of a Mobile app. It just gets the Thumbs up from me, but just because I got it for £0.99. I would also not recommend anyone to buy it for full Price, at most €2. So a really great Tower Defense Game it's definitely not, but you can play through it before.

Very Mono X3 Even that seems mobile game is a good defense game, for 5 dollars is good. Now, that said, let's start. It needs more variety of live scenarios and some movement of grass or trees, could make more types of warriors and leave them removing in some levels to give a touch more difficulty and depth to the game, the story is not the strong point in this type of Games, but still a script a little better thought would be appreciated, a little more variety in game modes would be fine, but not a bad game you need some things that make you hook more. I Think it's more designed to play in time.

Pros:-The Characters can be moved, which makes playing a bit more dynamic-Manageable Interface http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1330270192 Cons:-Subpar graphics-Only 20 Levels, Which also make uncreative Are-The Replay value is not given-The suicide opponent is too strong and sometimes bugged (Units die out of Reach)-The Story is not worth mentioning-Much too few different Types of Units (4 in Number)-Units can be done during Not to be improved to the Fight-Unsightly Animations-Overpriced price-Total Special Package http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1330269460 Conclusion: Selknam Defense is a simply yesterday's and subpar tower defense Title that has no Special Features. The inferior Quality of the Game is particularly illustrated by the below-average Optics and the far too rudimentary game Set-up. Laity Level design, embarrassing Sound Effects, measly Game Content and the weak Overall Impression provide a fun free Experience that can be saved. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1330269701
