THE ONION KNIGHTS reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Kurzweian Fun, uneven low-change! I played for almost 6 Hours and ... It's just the Air out because you have to do it the Same thing, no Matter what Mode you play. It BLEIBT always the Same. Constantly only get 2 (out of 3) Stars for a Mission, although you complete them perfectly (high Combo, no Injury, all Bonuses collected, none let through and everything quickly killed). I liked the Game, honestly! But incredibly desolate after x Hours ...

Very good action game, well-bloat, fun and not very expensive. Defend his Castle and survive by eliminating the waves of enemy attacks. To fulfill these simple objectives, you will have at your disposal a whole bunch of hero partners, bonus items and skills to select and to make progress over the victories. The massacre combos will allow you to win a maximum of gold coins and gain access to the higher levels. 2 game modes:-in stages (about 200 levels in total, easy or hard)-in incessant waves (500 in total with increasing difficulty, the last being rather bold)

Nice little Game for in between or if you don't have Time to make bigger Game Sessions. The typical Situation: "Hm, I still Feel like playing something, but actually I have to go in 20 Minutes." For that, Onion Knights is perfect. Just started fast, played a few Levels and had Fun. The Game is a Tower Defence that allows an astonishing number of Combinations. There are quite a few skills and Heroes that you can combine funny. The Scope appears quite neat and the Controls are light. For all Friends of Casual Tower Defences and quick uncomplicated Action I can only recommend the Game.

Initially I thought it was a bad copy of the classic Tower Defense that I always adored, but then, with the advance of the levels I found it more and more interesting and difficult. It is Not the classic tower to put the turrets on a path and then quietly observe the slaughterhouse that they make on the path. No, the only thing that's automatic is the cannon shot. You'Ll have 3 activable riders that help you with a skill, every skill has a mana cost that will be recced over time or by taking the puddles they will fly towards you. Every Hero has a variety of skills to choose and empower. You will have several consumable consumables to use for further help. There will also be 3 activable heroes once but they will make absurd slaughterhouses. There will be... MANY SPELL to avoid, the game requires a thousand eyes to keep everything under control. I would recommend it, although the first half hour seemed trivial and stupid. https://youtu.be/dIoVOSnazi8
