Tower of Elements in the Lexington Herald Leader

Posted by:

This was a really great and very detailed article about Tower of Elements in the Lexington Herald Leader:

Defend your tower from The Void in Frogdice’s newest release

So came the tale of how you must defend your tower from the onslaught of The Void army, a group that rose to prominence in Primordiax.

“Basically, The Void abhor existence,” Hartman said. “They are a power of nihilism, and they want the universe to cease to exist.”

So as The Void approach your tower, you must defend it by matching the runes inside. Each match sends out a powerful blast that can destroy enemies in its path.

Polygon wrote about Tower of Elements and our charity promotion:

Tower of Elements developer teams up with Stop Hunger Now to feed the hungry

I think one of the Polygon readers said it best:

“Downloaded demo: check

Played demo: check

Bought full game: check

Just realized I’ve been playing this game for almost 6 hours straight: check

I have no idea how much is left in this game, but I hope they make a sequel.

We need more developers willing to make different, original games like this. Taking established game mechanics and using them in totally different ways is a great way to make a game feel comfortable and approachable but still fresh and new.

Nice work!”   -Bellacasta

Thank you, Bellacasta!

Destructoid covers Tower of Elements promotion.

Posted by:

Dale North, Editor-in-chief of the popular gaming web site Destructoid, wrote an article about Tower of Elements and our promotion with Stop Hunger Now:

Buy tower defense RPG Tower of Elements to feed the needy:

You would probably never have to talk me in to playing a tower defense RPG, but if you did, telling me that doing so would feed a hungry family would definitely help. 

This is exactly what’s happening with indie game company Frogdice and partners Stop Hunger Now. For each and every sale of their cool looking match-3 tower defense RPG Tower of Elements this month and next, a meal will be given to a needy family. You play a game, a hungry child eats. Double happiness.

Tower of Elements (available for both PC and Mac) has you playing as an elementalist that that sends magic attacks from his tower to hold back approaching monsters. Attacks come as a result of matching three or more on a puzzle board, and experienced earned from these attacks will let you learn more spells, upgrade gear, and gain more weapons.
