Best Tower Defence Games | TOP10 Tower-Defense (TD) PC Games

Best Tower Defence Games
In tower defense games, you’re meant to attack players’ territories or items by staving off enemy aggressors and staking your claim on the land. It’s not for everyone, but for some enthusiasts, it’s the best genre out there.

Best 10 Tower Defence Games for PC. There aren’t as many brand new tower defence games for PC. And I find that a bit of a shame, because this is the one strategy sub-genre that feels like it really cool. Don’t worry, though, TD fans. There are still loads of brilliant tower defence games available. Even if some of them are a little old, you can’t have played them all, right?

Colony Siege

Colony Siege is a game from Finifugal Game, distributed by Finifugal Game. It belongs to the casual game genre, subcategory Tower Defense and was released on 19.06.2020. Colony Siege combines the best of RTS and tower defense, including base building, mazing, and unit physics. Defend Earth's remaining colonies using an arsenal of deadly weapons to torch, slice, throw, and impale swarms of alien invaders.
Whether fighting the Xenos or the Riven, no colony building is safe from attack. While protecting the colony Citadel is your primary objective, the enemy will not discriminate when it comes to attacking your colony. Defend against the relentless biomechanical xeno swarm as well as the corrupted Riven that were once human. Both enemy factions behave differently and require different tactics.

Sanctum 2

On the positive side, Sanctum 2 manages in almost every respect to outdo its predecessor, which was very promising but did not fully exploit its potential. With four playable figures, a good dozen balanced defenses and lots of unlockable weapons and extras, it offers a good tactical foundation. Together with the modifiers that enhance the rather meager difficulty level and the online mode for up to four players, there is enough replay value. However, the bottom line is that there are too few types of enemies, so that a certain routine comes up, which you won't find in other tower defense hybrids like Iron Brigade. In addition, the scenery of this entertaining tactical action seems a bit antiquated.

Aegis Defenders

In Aegis Defenders a promising gameplay premise, a beautiful pixel style and a mysterious storyline come together. The title is a platformer with tower defense elements and transports you to a world whose inhabitants are fighting for survival after a great war. Aegis Defenders is an interesting mixture of platformer and tower defense game, which scores especially with its beautiful visuals. The gameplay is also quite interesting and is a lot of fun in most sections, but can sometimes be a bit frustrating due to a somewhat choppy control and strange level design decisions. However, with about ten hours of gameplay for the main plot and the possibility to replay all the missions at a higher level of difficulty, you'll get a good deal for your money.

Dungeon Defenders Awakened

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is a co-operative Action RPG/Tower Defense game that brings loot, leveling, pets, and character customization. It is co-op Tower Defense combined with epic Action RPG combat. You’re able to join forces with up to four players to take on a never-ending army of orcs, demons, and dragons! Master the Squire, Huntress, Apprentice, and Monk to fight off hundreds of minions bent on mayhem!. Build and utilize your arsenal of blockades, towers, traps, and auras to keep the Eternia Crystals safe. The only requirement is to win, but it’s up to you to choose how!

Mechs vs. Kaijus

Mechs V Kaijus is an addictive hardcore tower defense gameplay. It’s a tough game that really makes you feel like you’re on the back foot from start to finish. In Mechs V Kaijus you take on the role of Commander of a powerful Mechs squadron. It’s a fun and addictive fusion of tower defense and kaiju blasting arcade action that shows a lot of potential. The pixel artwork is excellent, there’s a nice selection of upgrades and the gameplay is fast and frantic.
The Game mixes Mechanics of MOBA games, Base defense and Shot them up like no other game out there. Commanders can build Tanks of Helicopters Factories and deploy Walkers to create epics armies and fight the Kaiju Horde.

Rise to Ruins

The gameplay: Rise to Ruins is a building strategy game with tower defense and survival elements. You first build a small village into a thriving village and then expand your settlement to other areas of the world. In this way you build a network of small towns that cooperate with each other.

But be careful: The world in the game is populated by all kinds of monsters, which haunt the country and its people due to a malicious "corruption" (English: corruption). At night the monsters appear and try to destroy what was built in the sweat of your brow and turn your dear inhabitants into shuffling undead. To prevent the imminent doom, you build defensive structures around your settlements.

You play as a god: You yourself even take on the role of a god and can cast all kinds of spells with a divine hand. For example, you can stimulate the growth of certain resources, call a holy golem to protect your male and female or, in the classic way, throw a fireball at the monsters' heads.

Kigdom Two Crowns

At first glance you do nothing else but collect coins and spend them elsewhere. But behind the minimalist controls and the supposedly monotonous gameplay hides an ingenious game principle.

This has not changed in Kingdom Two Crowns. The interaction possibilities are limited, but you still make relevant decisions on an ongoing basis. While you ride over the beautiful 2D map, you constantly consider whether and how far you should expand your fortress and whether you should dare to cut down another piece of forest.

Whether you can still build a tower or need the archers for the hunt - and even where to put your game piece so that it doesn't collect too many coins when the sack gets full again. The slow exploration of the level, which goes hand in hand with planning, sometimes has something downright meditative about it. And because the game does not take the trouble to explain its mechanics, you are challenged to find out things for yourself.


A fusion of roguelite, tower defense, city-building, and deck-building! We created a new kind of real time strategy game filled with addictive and fast-paced gameplay. Create your deck, defend your city, and build the largest Ratropolis in history! As a "real-time strategy game that tries to combine elements of roguelite, tower defense, urban planning and deck building", Ratropolis does some things right but unfortunately also a lot wrong. With currently more than 30 events, over 120 deck cards, six different endings and five leaders there is a lot to discover in Ratropolis.
The achievements, which are at the number 35, were not spared either. The decision to provide all leaders with the same deck of cards, however, limits the replayability in my opinion massively.
Furthermore, a better balance between the cards is appropriate. With a bit of luck it is possible to draw strong military cards right at the beginning of the game, these make the game much easier and the game is not challenging at all.

Bloons TD6

The Bloons are back and better than ever! Get ready for a massive 3D tower defense game designed to give you hours and hours of the best strategy gaming available. If you are seeing gameplay of "Bloons TD 6" for the first time, you will have some trouble finding your way around the game. The expression "pure chaos" probably describes it best. There are an enormous number of enemies, a meaningful structuring you search in vain and the upgrade system is very complex and confusing. But the basic rules are relatively simple, because basically "Blooms TD 6" is a classic tower defense game. So you have to build towers and other defensive structures to defeat the approaching enemies - in the game these are balloons. If an opponent breaks through your defensive line, you lose a life. Once these are used up, the round is over.

Kingdom Rush

Beautiful, playfully straightforward Tower Defense, which belongs to the best games of the genre due to its many fresh ideas. While Kingdom Rush is rather slow in the beginning, the last of the 14 levels are very tough. Because of the limited building sites and the few basic tower types, the solution is relatively limited, which you have to work hard to find.

New Ideas: There are two special abilities that can be used at any time - the auxiliary squad for blockade tasks and the meteor shower for wiping out entire clusters of enemies. Or the sophisticated upgrade system for towers and special skills, which can be varied at any time and thus adapted to the requirements of the level. In the individual sections there are also special enemies or special units that can only be used at the moment. In addition, fully developed towers were given imaginative special attacks that make the sizzle on the battlefield a real pleasure.

All in all, Kingdom Rush makes a thoroughly professional impression. It hardly gives the genre any new impulses. But it clearly shows how much fun one can still get out of a rather old-fashioned concept with a perfect implementation. For every fan of the classic TD route, it should easily find its way into the TOP10.
