    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.

    Dual Decade (Swedish indie game studio) presents Dash or Defend - the game that begins where traditional tower defense games end!

    In Dash or Defend, you choose to play either the attacking or defending side before each battle. As the attacker you create wave after wave of troops and enhance them with spells, so they can overcome your opponent's towers. Conversely, as defender you will be building towers and use magic to stop the attacker's troops.
    Alternate which side you play to have even more fun, while becoming better at predicting and defeating your opponents' strategies!

    Dash or Defend merges the Tower Defense genre with Real-Time Strategy and MOBA in a way that has never been done before. While it is clearly building on great Tower Defense traditions, there's more action, faster decisions and sweeter victories than in any TD game you have ever played. That's a promise!

    Key Features:
    - Play two sides, with 100% different cards and win conditions.
    - Duel real players in real-time.
    - Discover what it's like to play the reverse side of Tower Defense.
    - Unlock and upgrade towers, units and magical effects as you battle your way up the ranks.
    - No pay to win. Cards can't be purchased - only collected through winning battles. (Plus, there are freebies!)
    - Fine-tune your battle decks to fit your strategies perfectly.
    - Each game only takes 5 minutes or less.
    - Protect Grand Hiria from being overrun by your enemies!
    - Tap-Dash! A fun mini-game in the Flappy Bird tradition is included, to entertain you while you wait for your next opponent to press their "Battle" button.
