Anointed: Kingdom Rush Frontiers revealed

Does it make Scousers cry?

The Diego Forlan of tower defense.

Uruguayan indies Ironhide Game Studio have been teasing a sequel to their 2011 iOS tower defense hit Kingdom Rush for months now. The long-awaited game got a name and a logo yesterday: Kingdom Rush Frontiers, which will arrive on the App Store this spring if all goes to Ironhide’s plan.

Saying that a game is a great tower defense might seem like faint praise on this blog, but Kingdom Rush really is a lot of fun – an exuberant game with a winning art style and a wide array of tactical decisions that let you carve your own path through it.
