Defense Derby is a strategic, player-versus-player (PvP) defense game with a real-time auction system added for a new experience in the tower defense (TD) genre.

Those who pre-register will receive a ‘Welcome Package’ at launch, replete with in-game bonuses such as 20,000 Gold, a Rare Hero card, a Rare Unit card, and a Special Castle Skin, noted the developers. 

Google Play, the App Store, and the Galaxy Store all support Defense Derby pre-registration for Android and iOS devices.

RisingWings also noted that Defense Derby’s development is in its final stages and that it is solely focused on enhancing gameplay quality. The participants of the early access test, surveyed earlier this year, awarded the game high marks, reported RisingWings, resulting in a satisfaction rating of 4.6 out of 5. The game is all set for release in over 190 countries worldwide later this year. Additionally, Defense Derby will be also available in a total of 10 languages, including English.

Defense Derby is keen on revitalizing the tower defense genre of games. The game thrusts players into round-based matches where they face intense strategy, mind games, and powerful synergy effects. Notably, each round begins with a scouting stage phase where four players bid against each other to recruit units and assemble their squads. “Players must then place their units strategically within their castles to leverage their special abilities and ward off a series of monster invasions. The player that survives the monster hordes and has the last castle standing wins the match,” stated the release.
