I've got to go for another university open day with my son who finishes his A levels this academic year. He wants to study pharmacy. So I've only posted a short review today with no conclusion. I will continue to moderate when I get back from our visit. As it's at least 4 hours drive it's not going to be until early to mid evening before I'm back. Please continue to post feedback, thank you.

Installation:

If you are having problems applying for a Steam key, I posted a short tutorial on how to do so last week. You can see that HERE at the top of the comments.

Assuming you've found your Steam key for Kings Guard HD! you have to activate the game via your Steam client. Once activated it will be permanently tied to your Steam profile and you'll be able to install the game at any time, anywhere on any computer, so long as you can validate who you are (usually via emails etc). If you don't have a Steam account you will first have to download and install the Steam client HERE




Kings-Guard-TD-1
campaigns
Then create a Steam profile/account. Once that has been completed you can input the Steam code that you've received (after completing the form filling) via the game button along the top of the Steam client, (located between friends and Help - see image below). From the drop down menu select 'Activate a product on Steam'. This opens a product activation window. Just follow the prompts to complete activation. Once the Steam code has been accepted, the game will be permanently associated with your Steam account and can be installed any time you wish.



If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Kings Guard HD to work, please visit the problems section over in the Game Discussion forums, which I've now incorporated into the FAQ's thread, and which you can find HERE




The Game:

Key Features:
Build strong towers and lead your defense forces against difficult enemies.

You can choose from six different towers which can be upgraded. Each tower has different abilities to help you overcome various enemies.

Fight across three different environments in three campaigns that offer an intense tower defense experience with 50 challenging and unique levels.

8 enemy types from villagers to warriors, to flying dragons

The tower defense genre (TD) has become both increasingly crowded over the last few years (almost 200 titles via Steam and many more via the free flash sites for example HERE and HERE) and have been very popular in recent years due to their broad appeal and simple yet addictive game play. With so many competing titles and a limited scope for variation there’s bound to be fewer original titles coming onto the market. Sadly todays game isn't one of those; however, if you enjoy Tower Defense games, you should get some enjoyment out of today's giveaway. Tower defense games are amongst my favorite arcade genres, so I'm a little biased when it comes to trying to give a well balanced review. That said, this is not one of the best TD games around; protracted sessions become a little boring in my opinion, but playing for short sessions can be quite enjoyable e.g. during a coffee break. With over 200 titles to choose from, I could list a lot of much better TD games, but for free it's okay. At the moment it's one of the cheapest games on Steam with 50% off and costing only £0.39/$0.49.

There are three campaigns, two of which are locked at the beginning of the game. To unlock you have to complete the previous campaign. You can choose from three difficulty settings at the beginning of the game, Easy, Hard and Impossible. The first campaign has 20 levels, three of which are unlocked at the start of the game and each level has a number of waves usually around 10. Each tower is upgradable several times, each upgrade costing more than the previous. Upgrading increases the area the tower covers as well as the damage it casues, higher upgrades also have a shorter recharge period. As you progress new towers are unlocked for example cannon towers. You can check to see which towers you have by going into the inventory. At the end of each level you also earn crystals which can be spent in the shop to buy other upgrade/buffs, for example Tower damage, speed of recharge and range can all be increased, or you can buy events such as meteor rain that causes damage to a number of enemy. Other upgrades include paralyse, ambush, sharp shooter, multi tower damage, spell damage . In totall there are 23 upgrades costing anywhere from 1000 crystals to 30 000 crystals. Considering I only earned 599 crystals after completing levels 3 and 4, not all upgrades will be available for each complete game so choose your upgrades wisely.

This game is so frustrating... the endboss always gets me. And the powerups i can equip are not quite good enough. I give up on this game. Can i ask for a better game, make a game request? I would like to see GemCraft: Labyrinth Premium Edition here, i lost that game a long time ago, and now i have the right CPU to actually play it with 1000+ spawns on the field.

I kinda like that it's cheap and easy as these days I don't have much energy to spend on learning games, so I'm actually more likely to play this than my other more complex TDs and it may help me transition to them. Plus it's cute. I wouldn't pay for it, but I didn't have it marked as 'Not Interested' on my Steam. I appreciate having variety of game types. Also, my 11-year-old Godson, who plays TDs, will enjoy it too.
Thanks for this.

Problem:

So far, the only problem I have with this game, is that after I collected 6 or 7 pieces and completed 5 Levels, all of a sudden everything was gone. It is as though I am just starting the game for the first time.

How It Happened:

All I did was to go into the Settings and changed the "Graphic Quality" to the Highest Setting. I then went into "Inventory" and added my new "Equipment".
When I went to play the next Level, all my Stuff was gone.

Thanks
Gil

Hi Gil, I can't explain what happened' maybe it's because the game is so cheap, changing any settings mid game may invalidate any saves???? Sorry I can't be of more help.

cute game. I like it. I don't have to actually do the shooting so my hair stays on my head instead of my pulling it out in frustration. It would be nice if you could turn the music off and still have the sound effects. Also, this is the first time I have played a game of this type, so more instructions would be helpful. They could always have a way to turn them off if the person wishes not to see them.

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Hi Carolyn, good idea.

With respect to game play, you start the game with two tower choices. When you start the game you have to place towers in specific area's on the map. Try and select area's where the tower will cover as much of the enemy route as possible, for example at corners and where routes double up on themselves. Once all of the tower placements are filled you can upgrade the towers to improve their specifications, for example to cover larger area's and to increase recharge rates. As you progress new types of towers are unlocked, plus you can purchase other upgrades via the shop with the crystals you earn at the end of each level. The trick is to keep the enemy from entering the castle. Each one that does removes a heart from the top left hand corner of the game play arena, if you reach zero, the game ends.

No, there really does seem to be a problem with the button. So I normally use Firefox and when I tried to click on the button the box that is suppose to show up didn't show up.

Try using a different browser. I tried using Chrome and that seemed to work.

By the way, your tutorial gives instructions to use Facebook to get your key. If you would rather use an email address instead of Facebook, there is a link below the Facebook button to use an email address instead. (While I have a Facebook account, I only use it to save some of my android game accounts and would rather not do any shares or likes on there. I only have my brother on my Facebook account anyway.)

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Hi Top Floor, the tutorial does not say use Facebook, what it says is you can use Facebook if you wish to inform your friends. For those who don't like or don't want to use Facebook you still have to start the log in phase. As soon as the log- in window opens you just close it down without signing in. Then you can proceed. It's much quicker than the email method and it's not necessary to have a Facebook account. All that step is there for is so that those who don't mind can use Facebook to spread the word to all of their friends. It is a tactic used to increase the number of users who visit the site. The more community members the better the chance of getting better software.

Also, I guess I'm one of the few people that is ok with Steam codes. Most of my game collection is in Steam, anyway. The other thing is that with the Steam games my free game comes with me when I eventually move to a new computer. So I personally prefer the Steam games, but it's probably just me. :/

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


No, there are more of us Steamophiles. I didn't like Steam at first as I'd felt pressured to install it after buying a couple of steam works games several years ago. I didn't realize what Steamworks meant at the time; thought it was a developer or something like that. Now most of my games are purchased via Steam (apart from those specific to Origin like the battlefield series). At the moment I have well over 9000 games in my Steam account (more like 9300 if I count the games in my inventory that I've not added to my account yet). I'm not a game collector though, I buy games for pain management. New games seem to help more.. They stay in my inventory until I'm ready to play them, otherwise they get lost these days. lol.

I'm with you fellas. While I did miss this one yesterday, I love Steam. They fall way short on customer service but they never have a shortage of games and I always wait anxiously for their next sale. We're TF2 junkies and run our own server that's usually full of bots, or us. :p keishaj if you're ever looking for a new pal and I think our server name is Bot Slayers if you're ever looking for a game. :)

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Sounds cool, though I've not played TF2 in quite some time. I have been looking for game partners to play several different coop games. The friend I played regularly with sadly passed away and since then the group I played with regularly have dissipated, or never have the same time slots to play. I love certain games playing with friends rather than just jumping in with strangers as you never know who you are playing with and often they are only concerned with scoring points etc. For example, I was playing Killing Floor 2 several months ago with a bunch of strangers, who I got the impression were friends or regular gaming partners as they hung together all the time. The more zombies you kill each round the more cash you earn which can be used to upgrade weapons and armour at the end of each round. With that particular group i found it really hard to get many kills so had the poorest weapons, yet they all had much better weapons and seemed determined not to let those outside the group score kills. At one point we were being attacked by a particularly nasty zombie and needed to escape. I was the last one to leave the area, but found they had closed the door to the room we were escaping tfrom and had started to seal it with me on the wrong side of the door despite them knowing I was with them at the time; so I died, which meant I would have to wait till the end of the round to re-spawn. Not very friendly at all. I'm actually thinking of creating a Steam group with a view to getting like minded community members, who love playing coop, but are not competitive and don't consider themselves great players. I find some gamers are too serious about points or playing the game in a specific way, or at the opposite end cheaters, disruptive or totally juvenile. I much prefer a fun session, talking on Team speak or other comm's system, joking a little, but playing fairly and with respect for each other. A lot of my Steam friends prefer single player only, or no longer play the games I love to play. (Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, ArmA 2 and 3, Half Life 2 Deathmatch, The Elder Scrolls Online, Defiance, Kane and Lynch 2 (need four players to be able to run a server), Killing Floor 1 and 2 plus loads of other coop games. TF2 isn't my favorite, but it can be a lot of fun if you're playing with the right crowd.

I've posted a short tutorial on how to get the Steam key for this game, which I've linked to in the review at the top of these comments.

...A simple game really. I like simple. At normal difficult the 3 level has a boss that comes out at ten and final wave (double axe man). He defeated me- I should have built more towers. Maybe what is needed is a warning- say careful or something like that . I had no trouble to get a key or download, everything went fine. Probably not a game that will keep your interest for too long a time period. Come back to play again after time passes .

At $0.99 this is GUARANTEED to be a STEAM offering and game that is likely to be utter trash. There doesn't seem to be all the hoops and hurdles with this one, but still a BIG NO from me. I wish GOTD would just get rid of these clots.
WhiteRabitt01, I know you will stand in their defense, but be honest, they're a bunch of goons.

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Of course I will. That said, if I thought this game was utter trash I would have said so. It may be a cheap game, but it's not utter trash. It's very simplistic, doesn't have much in the way of exciting game play and lacks a wide choice of tower defense systems and the enemies are a little boring, but it is playable. I wouldn't advise playing it for protracted periods, but as a coffee break filler its okay. For £079p/$0.99 and at the moment half price, you really cannot expect anything earth shatteringly good; for example, the very first game I ever purchased on Steam was a tower defense game called Defense Grid: The Awakening; it's probably one of the first TD games released when TD games came back in vogue several years ago and IMO is still one of the best TD games I've ever played. That cost me almost £20 when it was first released. Plus there were at least four dlc's that cost around a fiver each as well, I have never regretted paying so much for an indie arcade game because the quality and re-playabilty is brilliant. I doubt I'll replay Kings Guard TD once I've completed it but that's only becasue I have virtually every TD game released on Steam, many of which are much better.


Steam have been selling game engines for a few years now. Many of the games we see that are so cheap on Steam come via their Greenlight project, which has given many enthusiasts and would be developers the opportunity to have their games put up on Steam. For a small initial sum they can have their game accepted on the Greenlight project and hope the community will like it. If they get enough votes the game is Greenlit and eventually released to the Steam store. Today's game is one such game that was Greenlit last year and eventually released. I agree there are a lot of poor games on Steam, but I would not call them trash. As I said to someone else this morning, one mans trash is anothers gold.


One final word, I do think Steam has gone downhill somewhat over the last few years as the quality of game releases has been diluted significantly. When I joined the Steam community Jan 2009 there were perhaps one or two new game releases every week. Now we are getting 50 or more each week. Many of which are from the Greenlight project. I don't think the Greenlight project is a bad thing because it does give those enthusiasts and would be developers the opportunity to get a game released, but I do think they should perhaps keep them separate from the main Store. That will never happen though.

Mewzical, Sounds like this is a false positive from your Anti-virus. There are posts on how to fix- several ways to Whitelist, or shut off for an hour OR or.... I like a fix that can be more permanent "Like Exclusions", so that you can get other games and such next week and next month as well. Don't give up.

Mewzical, I find with Steam that after I copy and Paste' the code in the blank steam activate page; Steam auto finds the game for me so I don't need to have its name completely memorized. Auto finds- then click next buttons then it downloads.

The game is too simplistic. It does not keep your interest past 5 minutes. Not worth all the hoops you must jump through to get it.

Needs to be reprogrammed to add more realistic game play, better characters that are not robotic in movement, higher camera view, and new music.

The 3D view is nice but the game needs a lot of work to be fun. Steam knows that... or they should.

Mostly negative reviews on Steam. Basically, they gave away a really bad game to get a ton of new members from GOTD. Steam should rethink their strategy here because if they had given a good game they would have hooked me as a future customer.... but this showed me they are not fair.

It's like them giving a promotional ink pen that does not write.

Bad move Steam team.

I went and signed up for a stream account.Followed the instructions and clicked on game,but could not find anywhere to activate a product like it said.After i downloaded steam and set up an account there site ran a scan on my pc for the next 5 minutes after your download.Im sure they got what they needed plus more.Shit like that sucks

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


The scan does not gather info about you. what it's doing is updating the copy of Steam you downloaded. Steam is still in beta. You can stop the updates by configuring the client not to accept updates. Click on where it says Steam in the top left hand corner of the Steam client and select settings. Then click on settings. This opens up a new window that enables to to turn on or off various attributes as well as decide which p[art of Steam opens up when it first boots up, for example the library or the Store/. On the lower part of the Account tab there is a section called Beta participation. If you don't want regular updates make sure you've got it set to 'Opt out of all beta programs' You can also set it up so that no account credentials are saved on your computer.
It's comments like yours that gives some community members the idea that Steam is some non-benign entity, where all it is is a gaming platform that gives a great service to gamers and has a fantastic social side , a great store, a market where you can actually make money from your games plus an amazing collection of games to suite everyone's tastes as well as access to a fantastic number of free and free to play games etc. There's nothing untoward about Steam.

Guys, I notice that often, the file size isn't provided for game giveaways. Many, if not most, of you have unlimited bandwidth and no data caps, but for those of us less privileged the file size ESPECIALLY for games is quite material in deciding whether to download or not. Could you assist us by putting in this information please?

Hi Walbert, I often do post the size of the download, but with these Steam games, i have to search out where it is installed to. I have several hard drives, all of which have Steam games installed on them. Most of the Steam games I've already purchased and usually already have them installed. It can take me some time to find where it has been installed to. As I'm a volunteer, and my time is at a premium at the weekends, I won't usually check the size of the game if it's a Steam game, but for you I will try and remember. :)

Initially there's virtually no bandwidth involved as all you are doing is getting a key to unlock the game on Steam. Once you've got your key, you can delay installing it until you are ready to play the game, be it the same day, tomorrow, next week, next month etc. So long as you've secured your key, you can wait until you know you have enough bandwidth before actually installing the game. Thankfully, I did find the installed folder after only a few moments. Once installed it is 257MB in size

Does it matter? It's a site that gives away free games. Whether they be Steam, MyPlayCity or other developers, what's important is that some community members are getting a free game.

Robert, but by MyPlayCity or other developers you don´t have to install their SW-trash!!!

Each to their own. One mans trash is another's gold. Personally Steam is one of the best things to have happened to the gaming community (in my opinion). I won't bother to go into details as from your comment you are probably Steam/client phobic (no disrespect meant)- we are all entitled to like whatever we want). Over 100 million 'active' community members can't be wrong; also, some of the best games around can cannot be played unless you have a game client installed, for example the last several Total War games or the last couple of DragonAge games, at least five Need for Speed games, the 3D version of Plants and Zombies, Battlefield 3,4, Hardline and Battlefield 1, Prince of Persia, Silent Hunter 5, as well as many others on Steam, Origin or Ubisofts uPlay clients, plus there are many more games now unavailable as a straight installation. Also, there are more developers joining these game clients all the time because of the massive community bases they have. Even GOG that is often quoted as a great alternative by those who seem to hate game clients now has a game client. By the way, I used to hate game clients and actively avoided them, until I unknowingly (due to the ignorance of the term Steamworks) purchased two games I really wanted to play that turned out to be Steam only games (one of which is still among my favorite Tower Defense games; called Defense Grid: The Awakening, and the other title, Galactic Bowling.
