Kingdom Rush: Origins lands on Android and iOS - experience the prequel to the tower defense series
Kingdom Rush: Origins, the third instalment in the hit tower defense game series from Ironhide, is now out for Android and iOS. In Origins, players will "take a trip back to the beginning" of the series' story, commanding an elven army and battling sea serpents, rogue sorcerers, gnoll tribesmen, and other entities you wouldn't like stumbling upon in a dark alleyway. To get them off your back, you have a bunch of new towers, heroes, and spells at your disposal - a "treasure trove of new content", according to Ironhide. 

The new elf troops include Elf Archers, Mystic Mages, Stone Druids, and the Elven Infantry. Added enemy types include 30 new baddies, and the hero roster is expanded with nine legends of monster slaying. Over 70 achievements are built inside the game, and you can play in three different modes - Classic, Iron, and Heroic. And if you are the strategic type, an in-game encyclopedia lets you study all those bad guys you will be fighting.

Kingdom Rush: Origins looks like jolly good fun, and it's available for some $4.99 on Android and iOS.

I love the KR series. I bought the first two apps, and before that I even bought a premium account in Armorgames for the Web/Flash version of the first KR game. Origins was released late last week and of course I already bought and downloaded it by Saturday. :-)

The first KR was like one of the best games I have ever played. It was so well made, the difficulty was perfect and I completed every challenge in that game. Frontiers is also great. I am buying this one right now for Android. I normally buy the IOS version too but I am not sure I will this time, even though I bought the first two for both OS's.
