Tower defense game "Kingdom Rush Frontiers" is about to recieve an aquatic update by way of "Rising Tides," due August 1 and featuring plenty of gilled monsters to fend off.
The iOS tower defense game is considered one of the best in its class, rubbing shoulders with "Plants vs Zombies," "Fieldrunners," "Anomaly Warzone Earth" and "iBomber Defense Pacific."
Sequel to 2011's "Kingdom Rush," the "Frontiers" heyday was in the two weeks following the app's early June release, though it remains firmly planted in iTunes's top ten strategy game downloads, still inside gaming's top 50, and with an overall chart placing in the mid-80s. Not bad at all.
For "Rising Tide," Uruguay's Ironhide Game Studio is promising a new land to explore, a new threat to defend against, and new heroes to deploy.
Coastal regions abound and players can look forward to amphibious creatures, hulking whales, and tentacled beasts emerging from the depths, or get a preview of them in the update's trailer.
Just like King.com's "Candy Crush Saga," "Kingdom Rush" was first released as a browser game before transitioning to mobile; a PC, Mac and Linux conversion is also planned, having been voted onto the Steam Network via its Greenlight channel.
