If you are a fan of Warcraft 3, I am sure that you are familiar with Legion TD. That is what inspired two friends that created AutoAttack Games studio to design a new release based on that idea. What you get with small indie development teams is dedication and passion you sometimes don’t see with large games. That might be why Legion TD 2 looks like an excellent game even though that it is still in the early access phase.
A Tower Defense That’s not Exactly That
It might be weird that the game has “TD” in the end because you can’t say that this is a classic TD. A bunch of RTS elements was added, but it’s far more critical to know that this is a multiplayer release. As such, the developers are proud to present the first ever TD game for PC that is competitive.
You can win a match by killing the opponent’s king first. At the same time, that means you need to worry about protecting your king to avoid defeat. A total of eight players are divided across two teams of four. Each of the squad members has a task of defending a single lane, but they all connect and lead to your leader at the bottom. Matches are divided into two phases – night and day. During the evening, you can build, upgrade, and plan your next moves. However, once the day comes, you can no longer build or control your army. That means you just need to hope that you’ve made the right choices and outsmarted your enemy.
The Combination of Gold and Mythium
You don’t build any towers in Legion TD 2. You deploy units that don’t move throughout the night. Instead, they come alive during the day and move, attack, and defend automatically. If you defend a wave of enemies successfully, you will get gold. But if you want to launch an attack, you will need mythium, which is the second resource in the game. When you start playing, you will notice a crystal in your area of the map. Deploying workers to work on this crystal will gather you mythium.
Aside from two resources, you also have five legions to choose from before the game starts – Element, Forsaken, Grove, Mech, and Mastermind. Depending on your choice, you will have special perks and benefits. It’s interesting to mention that Mastermind is a random combination of all the other classes and might be an excellent way to surprise your enemy.
When it comes to graphics, you can see all downsides of the fact that a small indie team worked on the game. Although there are no glitches, everything looks a bit old. In fact, it’s like you took a trip back to Warcraft 3 when this idea was implemented.
