About the Royal Revolt series
Royal Revolt! was published in 2012 on iOS, Android, Amazon
Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Mac. It has been downloaded
more than 10,000,000 times and is still played by about 100,000
gamers each day. It won a number of awards, among them the German
Game Developer’s Award 2012.
Royal Revolt 2 was released on iOS today, with an Android
version already in Beta. Like its predecessor, Royal Revolt II
brings new game design elements to the Tower Defense genre. Royal
Revolt! reversed the tower defense genre by putting players in the
role of the attacker instead of defender. The successor brings its
own unique innovation to the genre. For the first time, players
take on both roles, defending and attacking. In impressive 3D,
players can now set up their own castles and build extensive
defenses with walls, traps and powerful towers. All this can be
easily created with a few touches using the new intuitive
construction mode. Combined with improved attacking gameplay from
Royal Revolt!, players blend the two activities to accumulate gold
