The magic castles of the realm must be protected in Wild Heroes, a tower defense game of heroic proportions from Global Pixel Studios. It's left to the bravest among us to face the foe and declare victory! If you've played tower defense games before, you'll be familiar with the basics. Instead of towers, you'll have heroes from among the animal kingdom to choose from. Click to select the hero you want, then click anywhere except on the path to place him or her. You'll find the occasional highlighted red spot which increases the power of the hero placed on it, and blue spots which increase range. By clicking on a placed hero, you can upgrade, sell, or choose a target priority. Heroes can be upgraded three times, with the third upgrade triggering the wild ability. The wild upgrade adds a special attack (above and beyond the standard attack) that occasionally triggers which really helps keep the monsters at bay. Each hero has unique abilities and strategic placement is key to beating back the enemy. In between levels you can use stars earned to upgrade a variety of things, as well as get more detailed information on your heroes or enemy units in the bestiary.
While not terribly innovative, Wild Heroes offers a solid tower defense game. It has all the amenities a good defense game should have: A fast forward button, three difficulty levels, a large map, achievements to be earned, and unlockable heroes and spells. So settle in! You've got some castles to save!
