    Review Defenders of the Mystic Garden

    Gnome mercy

    Defenders of the Mystic Garden (DotMG) takes elements from the tower defence genre and tweaks a few aspects to help differentiate it from others. Like most entries in the genre, you’ll control a limited number of units to fight against hordes of incoming enemies, but DotMG has movement on its side. Instead of units remaining...

About The Game

Defenders of the Mystic Garden is a play on the popular Tower Defense genre of games.

Players will find that various animals and insects are wreaking havoc on our backyard garden gnomes and stealing their strawberries. It's up to you to place and command your defenses.

Instead of static towers you place one of four units. These units can stay still, be moved, or patrol between two points that the player chooses. Each level has a maximum allowed number units allow to be placed further adding to the strategy. This engages the player as they must move units around the screen to deal enough damage during each wave of enemies. The action never stops from the moment the player starts the level.

12 Challenging Levels of play spread out over 4 themed environments
4 fully animated loading screens (one for each of the 4 themes)
Levels are categorized either Easy, Medium, or Hard (Strawberry Rating)
Level statistics including number of times played, cleared, and high score are recorded
4 Playable Tower Units, with differing strategies, each with 17+ unique voice-overs and SFX during in-game events from placement, selection, upgrades and more.

16 Challenges for added re-playability

Challenges include, defeating a certain number of enemies with idle or patrolling units, clearing a level with no strawberries being taken, different ways to clear a level, and more
16 different enemies to defeat and collect
