The final season of Game of Thrones promises to be the epic fantasy showdown to end all epic fantasy showdowns. It’ll make the Battle of Five Armies from Lord of the Rings look like a playground scrap.
But that could be two years away.
That’s where Age of Giants comes in. This polished tower defence game from developer Astrobot has every conceivable fantasy base covered, and it’s as epic as they come.
The story of the Age of Giants
Let’s start with the backstory. A long, long time ago the kingdom of man was locked in conflict with orcs, demons, and various other magical baddies in a war that lasted decades. Only by enlisting the help of giants and elves was mankind able to prevail.
But only for a while. Scouts patrolling the edges of man’s kingdom report that demonic forces are massing, and it’s only a matter of time before they march on your territory.
And here they come! By carefully deploying and upgrading seven different types of tower you have to hold back the demon invasion, cutting down frost witches, cursed behemoths, slime spiders, wyverns, and even “battle machines”.
You have ranged and close quarters weaponry at your disposal, including archers, bazookas, catapults, and more. You need to choose their locations carefully to maximise the damage you inflict on the demon army.
With 30 levels, three distinct heroes, three customisable Defender giants, five territories, boss battles, and five different difficult levels to work through, Age of Giants is absolutely brimming with content and fresh ideas.
