Kill Devils – kill monsters to resist invasion & unite races!
Kill Devils for iPhone and iPad, also available for Android, is an action strategy title with a heavy emphasis on defense that plays very much like Zombie Battle and Hero Battle, and is a welcome addition to the App Store.
The game sets you with the task of using a magic tower to destroy waves and waves of oncoming devils. The graphics are well done, and the upgrade tree and skill paths are interesting, and the design of the enemies is good.
Here, in the words of the developer, are the app’s main features and overview:
Kill Devils is a Defense spectacle unlike anything you’ve experienced on IOS.
Kill Devils is a fantasy infused defense odyssey like you’ve never experienced before. Set in the six mythical kingdoms of Ashan, players take control of a different magic tower in each of the games regions – each one populated by different races including humans, elves, dwarfs, and more – and challenged to shoot defend it with gun-like magic towers and elemental mana spells.
Kill Devils includes sixty stages in all, with total 210 consecutively more difficult timed stages for players to attempt to stay alive through. Like any defense game worth its salt, players in Kill Devil can upgrade their magic tower stats – rate of shooting, power of each shot, shot multipliers, etc. – and defense wall hp with coins collected from killing waves of enemies.
The game’s 3 elemental attacks – fire, water, and wind to be exact – can be upgraded via mana crystals awarded to player for completing each stage too. Pump them full of crystals and each attack can evolve too. I.E. Fire turns to Hell Fire, Wind turns to Tornado, and beyond!
The better you do on a stage in Devil Kills the more coins and mana crystals you rack up so stay focused and keep your head in the game! And don’t worry. Even if you change locations, your hard-fought upgrades will follow and apply to any tower you guard as you progress through this adventure.
Overall, Kill Devils is an attractive and interesting title that will appeal to action-RPG fans as well as fans of tower defence games, as it contains elements of both. Well worth a look, especially for free.PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC game reviews, opinions and retro articles
