The Orcs Crusade is a tower defense game available from the Windows Phone Store where you launch a crusade to rid the lands of enemy goblins, elves and more, protecting your base camp along the way. It's not your typical tower defense game though with set positions for your towers and a hero that can roam the battlefield.
We reviewed the Windows Phone game just a short time ago and found The Orcs Crusade to be an entertaining time-waster of a game. It is available for low-memory Windows Phones and is regularly priced at $1.99. However, through the myAppFree promotion, over the next twenty-four hours you can pick up The Orcs Crusade free.
Again, The Orcs Crusade is a tower defense game where you travel the lands defeating monsters and protecting your base camp. Game play is similar to most tower defense games with one exception. While you can choose the type of defensive unit to place on the battlefield, The Orcs Crusade has specific locations where a defensive unit can be placed. There are four basic defensive towers and eight specialized towers. They range from archers to infantry to catapults.
Orc banners scatter the path your enemy will take and these are the locations available to set up your defenses. It may sound a little restrictive but adds to the challenge of the game. In addition to your stationary defensive units, you have a hero available that can roam the battlefield as needed. You have six different hero types, each with special attacks that add to the devastation.
All in all, The Orcs Crusade is a fun and challenging tower defense game. There is room for improvement, but overall it is a nice time waster of a game. Available for low-memory Windows Phones, The Orcs Crusade is normally priced at $1.99 with a trial version available. Being today's myAppFree deal, over the next twenty-four hours, you can pick the game up free.
If you've been on the fence about taking the plunge and buying The Orcs Crusade, now is your chance to save a few bucks.
