Out Of Eight (Jun 16, 2007)
You would think that it becomes repetitive after a while, but the gradual introduction of new points and enemies along with the varied path design and open nature of the point placement makes each level slightly different. Plus, each level lasts only a short amount of time (on lower difficulty levels) so you don’t get tired of a particular puzzle. The structure of the game gives you the freedom to play the same level again and have a completely different outcome. The controls are also very straightforward and the learning curve is almost non-existent. Immortal Defense also has a decent story that can be skipped if you’re just interested in blowing stuff up. The graphics and sound are both top-notch and round out the original theme of the game. If you like games with a defensive tilt, you should definitely check out Immortal Defense: it is a breath of fresh air among a stench of similar clones.

Gameplay (Benelux) (Sep 27, 2007)
Elf verschillende torens die elk beschikken over specifieke eigenschappen, meer dan 100 levels, 26 verschillende types van vijanden, een opvallend degelijke verhaallijn en coole retro graphics die wat doen denken aan de uitspattingen van de demogroepen van weleer, maken van deze game een stevige kandidaat voor de Indie Top 5 van het jaar. En dan nu mijn muisarm nog wat masseren.

I don't think that the appeal of Immortal Defense will be for everyone, but those who will enjoy the game will be immediately drawn to it. It's quite easy to pick up and play in that the game fundamentals are all explained in the first few missions. It can be a good coffee break game, but also lends itself to longer play sessions as well. I definitely recommend giving it a try. At the very least you are guaranteed a game experience unlike much you have played before. In terms of the big picture, Immortal Defense is a great advertisement for independent games at large. It's the kind of stuff that the commercial distributors would be too scared to go near since it refuses to be tied down into a particular well worn style. It's an edgy and confident production that will compel me to keep an eye on Radical Poesis to see what they come up with next.

Immortal Defense‘s unique story and aesthetic probably won’t be for everyone, but those who cue to its surprisingly compelling and intricate mythology and original art design will find it well worth the investment.
