Based on the “Journey to the West” (a 16th Century Chinese novel), Monkey King Saga is a tower defense game that uses the novel’s characters to help protect the monk on his journey west. Players will summon, defend, upgrade, and pray, all in their effort to help the monk acquire the sacred scrolls and restore peace.
Players will control Monkey King, Pigsy, and Sandy, and will do so simultaneously. The heroes can be freely moved about the various hands painted landscapes. Enemy monsters can be caught and trained to fight as allies as well.
