Apple Games Features Hordes Of Orcs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Apple Games' latest feature examines the orc filled tower defense title, Hordes of Orcs. Recently released by Freeverse, the game challenges players to fend off the rampaging monsters using a variety of towers and walls. The article also includes a brief history of orcs and some tips and tricks to help players succeed in the game.

Your defenses include towers and walls you can place anywhere on the map, along with spells that slow their relentless march across the screen. Your supplies of gold and mana fund your building activities and spellcasting, respectively. Mana regenerates automatically, while you receive gold when you kill orcs. Choose from four spells: teleport, which sends all affected orcs back to their starting position; fog, which slows down all orcs for a short period; bait, which tempts all nearby orcs with goodies that keep them from going any further; and weaken, which reduces the defenses of all affected orcs.

Sell your towers if you need some quick cash, and donít forget to upgrade them with stronger defenses as soon as possible. You can even set a specific strategy for each tower, telling it to target the fastest enemy or the first one it sees, for example. There are five types of towers: arrow, fire, ice, lightning, and radiation. Each kind of orc is resistant to a different form of tower, so mix your defenses for optimal results.
