About Crazy Defense Heroes
Crazy Defense Heroes is a mobile game for iPhone and iPad that blends the deck building of a collectible card game, the suspense and strategy of tower defense, the tactics of resource management, an RPG character and equipment system, and a fantasy storyline with over 500 levels of innovative gameplay.
In addition to hundreds of hours of play in the single player campaign, the game features multiplayer tournaments and competitions.
Players build defences and use magic to blast enemies, slow them down, reveal the unseen, or create other real-time effects to achieve victory. Like everything else in the game, magic and skills can be upgraded using resources collected as the player explores the game world.
There are 19 types of tower cards that players use to defend against the enemy hordes, and 20 individually controlled hero characters to unlock and level up. The game is free to play with optional in-app purchases.
