Never heard of Sanctum but noticed Super Sanctum TD because of the price so I decided to try it out.
Great nostalgic graphics really stood out for me and I really loved it from there. Very easy to get into and my kid brother really loved it. Had been playing it sporadically between other gaming sessions and is a great distraction. The technical mechanics of the defense as well as the overall approach on levels makes the game also a detailed endeavor for those looking for a bit of depth in their game.
All in all a solid and entertaining game, good replay value and really affordable.

I am a bit of a retro game junkie so Super Sanctum TD immediately caught my eye. Ironically enough I own Sanctum but never really got into it. I actually prefer playing tower defense games on my Android but decided to give this game a shot. I'm glad I did as it is actually very addictive. If you like the genre then I am sure you will enjoy this game. It is perfect for a quick round whenever you have some time to spare.

Super Sanctum is a retro like 2D classic tower defense game, based on the popular 3D brothers. The gamemahcanic is the same like in original Sanctum: you must protect the core from invading aliens, by building various type of turrets. What differs is the game is 2D, there's no Skye, you can level up and unlock more turrets and different type of abilities. Which can be used against waves, like freeze a small group, drop rocket rain to the map and similar. All of this abilities has a cooldown time, so use them wisely. What differs is you can build mazes only between waves, but you can droop new turrets anytime, if you have credits. Killed enemies sometimes drops cash boxes, pick them up fast because they disappear.
Super Sanctum is the proof a well designed gameplay sometimes beats superior graphics and design. Of course the normal Sanctum is a good game, but if you like that you must get Super Sanctum, has many achievements, challenges, unlocks, level ups.
Spinoff from the serieslok0812 | Sept. 27, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
Super Sanctum TD (SSTD) plays like normal TD games which is vastly differ from the Sanctum series which have you play both FPS and TD at the same time. In SSTD, you are tasked to build towers and destroy waves of enemies from a top down perspective. The play style of Sanctum series still exist, like certain mobs are weak against certain defense and perks and bonuses that the player can unlock. There is also a world map that you can choose missions to play that serves as a hub that the player can respec their skill tree to plan ahead in order to maximize their damage for their next mission. Overall, a really fun TD game and a great spinoff from the series.
Is this how it began?drafek | Aug. 8, 2013 | See all drafek's reviews »
Is this how the sanctum series began? I'm not sure, it was released some days before sanctum 2. The game is great, and it isn't expensive at all. The graphics are nice. It's like a minigame in sanctum itself.
