When I bought this game, I had no idea I would sing so many hours into it! This tower defense game requires you to defend your reactors from enemies which may be air or land based! Their path is shown to you and you can lengthen it by putting obstacles or redirect it to form a maze with you r defensive towers along the walls! Buildings may be of energy type(rays,slowing particles) or physical type(bombs, bullets)! Along with buildings are your skills which are powers that can be used pretty much anywhere on the map and have a recharge time! To put it simply, you must transform the enemy's designated path from A walk in the park, to an eternity of a hellish maze! Trust me, it's quite satistying when you beat a tricky map! This is where Sanctum began, so I suggest buying it if you are a Sanctum fan! And even if you're not!

Unlike Sanctum, Super Sanctum TD is just that, a tower defense game. It plays the same as a normal tower defense game, with different towers having different strengths and weaknesses. There are a variety of enemies. Abilities on a lengthy cooldown can be unlocked, such as a freeze ability to stop the enemies in place for a few seconds. You can level up and choose upgrades based on different skill trees. Overall an enjoyable and cheap game with good replay value and variety.

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.
