Duke of Defense is a bare-bones tower defence game. The game features 8-bit graphics and a simple story, the tower defence mechanics are the same as you’ve probably played before.
You start a level with some gold, you build your towers for the first wave and then it plays until you win. The towers are placed in fixed locations and can be upgraded as you play. Upgrades are achieved by dancing under the tower, which was a strange concept.
The towers start of boring, with new ones becoming available as you play. Things like ice and fire arrows make for a slightly more exciting round.
There aren’t a huge amount of enemies, and as such the game can become a little repetitive. Boss battles are OK and do cut into the monotony.
The pixel art does not help this game at all. The whole game feels very dull, with a noticeable lack of colour. The sprites all start to merge a little and at times I found it difficult to spot my guys.
Overall Duke of Defense is an OK tower defence game. It hits all the right notes, though not always at the right times. The dull colour palette doesn’t help at all. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
