Defense Grid: The Awakening explores a relatively unpopular genre called Tower Defense. Influenced from the defensive structures of many RTS games, it is the player's duty to build numerous fortification towers that prevent enemies from reaching their goals. Each level delivers stronger, faster and numerous hordes that challenge a player's quickness, strategies and intelligence. With each new wave of enemies, players are rewarded with new weapons and upgrades. Hidden Path Entertainment, the developer and publisher, have delivered an amazing experience that is easy to play, but difficult to master.
