Sanctum is the world's first FPS tower defense game and is set in a beautiful science fiction world. You take the role of Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her hometown, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To facilitate your success you construct defensive structures and upgrade handheld weapons. Jump right into the fray and wreak havoc with your own weapons - unlike regular tower defense games, you are a key part of the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features of first person shooters and tower defense games to create something totally unique.
Just been playing for a few hours, and from what Ive experienced so far I must say Im loving it:)
Nice change from the run of the mill tower defence titles, lovely graphics, simple game play with depth from numbers / abilites of enemy.
No doubt Ill be up till the small hours playing this little gem, gratz and TU to Coffee stain and all connected, great job:)
Hybrid Tower Defense First Person Shooter that hits all the awesome parts of both worlds. Just like in a Tower Defense game you can upgrade your tower and you earn new towers along the way. You can always plan multiple paths for the enemies to follow. As with a FPS you have a good selection of weapons and you can upgrade them as well.
I love the fact that it allows the player to choose the amount of TD or FPS emphasis they will choose while playing. For example if you want more FPS, dump more upgrade points into your weapons. If you want for TD you obviously focus on your towers.
I will say though that focusing on your Towers will make the game easier, while focusing on your weapons adds a good bit of difficulty. I personally focus on both and Rock heavy hitting versus DPS.
While I haven't played the game, it looks like it can be fresh and original for once in a while in our FPS blinded world. You may enjoy the game at first, but in the end it will be a repeatition, then again, I haven't bought the game.
