    Dash or Defend's review

    Published: 2018-02-09, by .

    An epic battle for the resources, be a human or a Grand Hirian in this strategy game

    • Two games in one
    • Good storyline
    • Beautiful design
    • A bit confusing at first

    "To be or not to be"


    In this fantasy world inspired game, you can choose a side to play for each time. The humans have conquered the magical land of Grand Hiria and they want to extract their most valuable resource: Ether. On the other side, the Grand Hirians, the first inhabitants of the place, they want to stop the plunder. Humans control powerful towers that protect the mining machinery. On the other hand, Grand Hirians have a fantastic army made of wonderful creatures like dragons, big tree men, elves and other beasts. Both sides are equally enjoyable and exciting.


    Dash or Defend is an original app that gives you two games all in one. Being able to take the side you like everytime is a plus. It makes the game a lot more versatile and fun. The design is very colorful and beautiful. In addition, the whole storyline is very appealing and the characters are attractive and interesting. It mixes strategy and action so you need to be fast with brains and fingers.


    The game could be a bit confusing at the beginning but the tutorial and the training mode are really helpful. Anyway, there are lots of features and objects that you will have to figure out by yourself.
