Towerlands is a newly released tower defence game that offers a fresh spin on the well-worn genre. Here, you'll take on the role of a lord tasked with defending their lovely tower. 

There are some light RPG elements to get stuck into, so you may be able to get more creative with your strategies. And that's only one aspect of the game that makes it stand out. 

Your tower will start off low and will continue to grow as time goes on. As you might expect, you want to make your tower as big and mighty as they come. 

An essential way to grow your tower is to bring on knights and train them. The coolest thing about this game is that you will be able to rule over an entire kingdom and not just the castle itself

By taking over certain locations within your kingdom, you'll provide places where knights can improve their skills and be ready for battle. The more knights you can get, the better, and this will be critical in the growth of your castle. 

And then, once your castle gets bigger, you'll be able to place your trusted knights within its walls. This should make the act of defending your tower immensely satisfying, seeing as you've built it from the ground up and put in all of the effort. You'll be striking fear into the hearts of your enemies in no time.
