a bit old but still good TDkawette | Sept. 2, 2014 | See all kawette's reviews »
In Super Sanctum TD we can find the universe of Sanctum 1 & 2. Indeed there are almost the same monsters and a few different towers. It is not only a pure Tower defense because you can use some spells to slow or kill the enemies. That's why it can be quite hard at the beginning, you have to handle both aspects of the game to win. Actually, i got stuck in the 2nd island and I had to farm lower levels to get some upgrades.
I won't say it's a great TD but it's good enough for its price.

TD games are usually the same thing over and over again, but this one isn't. You get more freedom of where you want to build. If you build correctly, you can cause the enemies to take a long time getting through. This game has a decent amount of maps and enemies to take on. The difficulty rises as you get through the game, but never gets overly difficult. It also adds in some nice spells you're able to use such as, freezing your enemies, knocking them back, even blowing them up! I really enjoyed this game and I think you would enjoy it the same.
Interesting to a point but didn't captivate meashleymurray | July 6, 2014 | See all ashleymurray's reviews »
I love tower defence games. I enjoyed playing this game up to a point yet unfortunately the appeal quickly faded. I felt as though I was playing the same level again and again with slightly more resilient enemy's each time. I like the concept of power-ups and upgrades and the way that TD institutes it, yet wasn't blown away overall. If you are a die-hard tower defence fan, you probably will still enjoy it. I just perhaps went in with my expectations too high to fulfil.
Nice Top Down ; Tower Defence.Ghostbacks | July 1, 2014 | See all Ghostbacks's reviews »
Sanctum 2 is a perfect example of how to keep a tower defense game interesting in 2013. Even though Super Sanctum TD has a top-down view and does not include a protagonist, you still feel like you are playing something else than a simple flash game.
The fact that you decide where you place foundations is most likely the biggest difference compared to other tower defense games. Some people are saying that the update in December 2013 changed the game, but that didn't stop me from buying the game. After a few hours I have to say I don't know what they are talking about. This game is not super-easy, it's challenging, but it should be.

I've never play on TD games. So it's my first time. This game has got a really good music. The graphics isn't demanding but looks like retro game, and makes that this game have pleasant atmosphere and causing that you want to play on it.
