Kingdom Rush Frontiers is the sequel to hit tower defense game Kingdom Rush, keeping the same great gameplay with fun improvements and extras. The latest update adds even more to like, including new stages, enemies, and a challenging boss fight.

Just like the original, Kingdom Rush Frontiers is set in a fantasy world where you'll battle cartoon-like mythical monsters hell-bent on destroying your kingdom. As a fixed-path tower defense game, you'll be required to choose from four different types of upgradable buildings with varying damage types to keep the evil invaders at bay. Each level has a set number of available emplacements, so it's important to choose your towers wisely.

Even better than the original, Frontiers adds new towers, upgrades, and special abilities to your arsenal. Screenshot by Jaymar Cabebe/CNET
