Dungeon Defenders 1.0
A great mix of tower defense and action games where you must save the land of Etheria from the forces of evil.
In this game you must save the land of Etheria from a powerful, evil creature. There are 4 different character classes you can choose from, each one with its own advantages and disadvantages.
After selecting the character you must select the level you want to play, alone or with your friends. The game can be played with up to 3 different friends at a time. The objective is simple, defend the crystal by any cost, simply by placing defenses on the map.
Defenses come with different shapes and sizes, ranging from a simple gas trap to powerful lightning towers. Each class has its own defenses that can be placed, and most of them can be combined in order to deal more damage.
The interface is very complex, but, just like any other RPG, gives you access only to the data you have to see. This includes the health level, the amount of mana you collected, the powers available to you and your current level. Additionally, you can see the amount of remaining waves, how many enemies were killed and how many remain on the map.
Some of the levels allow you to engage in difficult boss fights that will give you access to rare items, once the boss is defeated. Dungeon Defenders's gameplay is all about tower placement and the strategy you use to lure your enemies as far away from your crystals as possible.
Depending on your style of play, you can create a builder or a melee character. Each one of these abilities can be achieved by improving your tower skills (for the builder) or the fighting skills (melee). Of course, you must take into account the fact that weapons, armor and even hats have stats that can be improved in order to help you with your build.
Some of the most expensive items you can find and the Ultimate armor and weapons, but during battles you will be able to grab enchanted, legendary and mythical items as well.
Dungeon Defenders shines when you play it in coop mode, with your friends or even random people from the Internet. The endless strategic options for all maps will keep you playing the game for hundreds of hours. Dungeon Defenders brings multiple difficulty levels, ranging from Easy to Nightmare.
To sum up, Dungeon Defenders is one of the best co-op games you can play on a Mac. It features all-out action, strategic tower placement and online modes. I definitely recommend Dungeon Defenders to anyone on the lookout for a good game.
