Kingdom Rush Frontiers doesn’t come free of charge, but there’s a reason why its creators charge a premium – it is, as Ironhide Game Studio claims, the “world’s most devilishly addictive (tower) defense game.” A sequel to the original Kingdom Rush, Kingdom Rush Frontiers lets you tap your way to victory as you defend your lands from all sorts of threats, including underworld creatures, dragons, and even man-eating plants. You’ll gain access to new heroes, new levels, new towers, plus the “good ol’ stuff” from the original title, which Ironhide says is now “vintage.” As you may have guessed, this is also a paid game because it’s more intense and more in-depth than the average mobile title. However, it’s not as difficult as it seems at first, and we’ve got six Kingdom Rush Frontiers tips for you that could help you if you get stuck along the way.
1. Hit The Wave Icon To Get A Jump On Things
Tapping on the wave icon would tell you beforehand which enemies will be gunning for you next, so take note of what you find out here, and always analyze your foes’ strong points and weak points to ensure your defense remains strong.
2. Have Some Ranged Weapons To Balance Your Offense
Let’s face it – melee attacks are fun. They’re quick and powerful, but when it all comes down to the big picture, they can wipe out your forces quickly, even if you defeat the opponent. To this end, you’ll want to be sure you’ve got some ranged weapons backing you up; this ends battles faster, increases your army’s survival rate, and simply gets the job done more effectively.
3. Don’t Allow Your Reinforcements To Cool Down While Enemies Are Present
As long as you’ve got opposition, you wouldn’t want to leave your special reinforcements on cool down. While placing them on cool down could save them for tougher battles going forward, you’ll have to think of the present when it comes to ongoing battles.
4. Tap On Opponent’s Tower To Initiate Combat
Yes, it does sound simple enough to play defense all game long and wait for opponents to attack your base, but Kingdom Rush Frontiers won’t make it that easy for you. You’ll also have to attack on occasion, and you can do that by tapping on an enemy tower, then on the blue flag icon, then on the area where you want your forces to travel to.
5. The Rain Of Fire
This can be a very destructive reinforcement, but you’ll have to fire it correctly if you want to make the most out of it. That means aiming the Rain of Fire right ahead of opposing forces. This allows them to walk into the explosion, thus wiping them out before they can get to your base.
6. Use Magic Wisely Against Armies With Heavy Armor
Your magic towers would be your best offense against enemies that wear a lot of armor, as magic can stymie armor and deal some serious damage to your opponents. Then again, you’ll also want to check if your enemies have high magic resistance, because if they do, that might render your attacks useless.
