Hero Defense is a bit of a head scratcher. The horror cliches are eye-rolling but in a charming way. The story is lacking, but there aren't many tower defense games with an epic plot anyways. The music and sound effects are awesome, but the graphics are oddly "choppy", even when getting 500+ fps.
So why do I keep coming back? I think it's the balance. This game is a RARE shining example of difficulty levels that genuinely reflect your choice. HD definitely requires some grind, but it has a built in tool that looks at your character (tower) strength and lets you know if you are signing up for certain defeat. I found that a great way to find JUST the right level of challenge that I was leveling fast but not suffering my way through the repetitions.
I will say that $30 for this game is too steep given it's age and the limited content. If it included a larger pool of "towers" there might be enough to justify a $20 price tag... but $30 is simply too much in my opinion. I'm sure a lot of love went into this, but that's not really how market value works. It's all relative, and $30 can get you a LOT in the PC gaming world. You might look at a game like Orcs Must Die 3, a similar "hero-driven" TD game. It's a much larger production and is currently PRE-ORDERED for $30... so this is a game you want to grab on sale.

Neither the best nor the worst TD I've played.
Not much tactical depth to it. The difficulty it throws at you boils down to managing your heroes, maximizing their positions, and trying to squeeze out as much as firepower as you can from runes.
Ultimately reminiscent of a "last stand" kind of game at higher difficulties, where it just throws legions of monsters at you, with a scattering of nigh invincible boss targets. These often make a map feel rather hopeless unless you've amassed absurd levels of power and maxed out runes.
That said, it's a fun distraction, but grindy as hell, which will probably keep most people from bothering with each difficulty tier on every map, never mind the absurd lengths required to get achievements.
Eh. 6/10
Worth a shot. Get it on sale.

Review from Steam

A good tower defense game.
It got old, not in a good way, but still a good/fun experience if you like the genre.
