Kingdom Rush Vengeance is the latest in the long line of tower defence titles from Ironhide, and we thought it wasn't half bad (though we prefer Iron Marines these days).

But what do we know? We're just some fools running a website about mobile games. So we decided to give our community of mobile gaming fanatics, the App Army, their hands on the game as well.

You can read their reviews below, but we know what you really want - your own chance of getting the best and latest games for absolutely naught beyond giving us a review.

Well you can! Just join our App Army over on Facebook (make sure to answer the short questions given to you!) and each week you'll have a shot at playing a big game of that week.

And better yet, you can chat about mobile games with other fans of the platform, make some friends, and get some wonderful, stimulating conversation in your life.

Sound good? Then go join the App Army! And come right back to read the reviews of Kingdom Rush Vengeance!

I can honestly say that I wanted to like this new chapter in the Kingdom Rush franchise, but eventually failed to do so.

First of all, apart from some graphical improvement, I did not notice any evolution in the series or something that I haven't seen in their previous games. Once again we see here the same top-down perspective, comic-style cutscenes, all-too-familiar gameplay and... yes, you guessed it right - a myriad of in-app purchases.

I am fine with IAPs in a freemium game or a premium one that gets a major DLC, but when they try to forcibly shove them down your throat in a newly released paid title, it becomes a slap-in-the-face move.

Just imagine going to a posh restaurant in anticipation of a good time and a delicious meal, but once everything is served they tell you that silverware, condiments, and even napkins are sold separately, which immediately makes you feel dumbfounded, frustrated and duped.

If you want to play an excellent tower defense game, go get Jelly Defense instead. The kingdom is dead, just leave it be!
