FPS + Tower Defense = Awesomeness

Sanctum 2 is the sequel to the world’s first Tower Defense/FPS hybrid game. Pick from four unique character classes and embark on a mission to protect the oxygen-producing Cores from hordes of deadly aliens who are threatened by their extinction.


Ok, so first off, where in the world have I been? I’ve been absent for at least a week now. No, I’m not dead and no, I’ve not stopped blogging. For starters, some ‘factors’ came to be and it appears that my time was cut short. And just another side note, we did a giveaway on this game a couple weeks back. Congrats to Virtual Bastion“Lightning” Ellen and Sam Foden for winning a copy of the game!

Choose your own loadout of towers, weapons, and perks, but choose wisely because you are humanity’s last defense against the unrelenting hordes set out to destroy it. Sanctum 2 is a new game completely rebuilt from the ground up using community feedback and innovative design to really push the bar of what an independent studio can do.Image result for sanctum 2In Sanctum 2, you will utilize elements from multiple gameplay genres to succeed. Construct towers and walls during the building phase before the enemies attack, then jump into the fray and blast everything to pieces in FPS mode. You can progress through the single-player campaign yourself, or play with up to four friends in co-op to discover the secrets of the planet LOEK III and learn the backstory on why the aliens are so intent on destroying the Cores you are sworn to protect.


Building on the success of the original game, Sanctum 2 stands alone as the only true FPS/Tower Defense hybrid. No other title delivers gameplay that seamlessly combines both genres.

  • Tower Defense – Design complex mazes and build powerful towers to stop the enemies from destroying the Cores.
  • First-Person Shooter – Don’t just sit back and watch, jump into the action yourself!
  • Four playable character classes – Each with their own unique strengths, weaknesses, and weapons.
  • Vast Customization System – Pick perks or make the game crazy hard by adding Feats of Strength.
  • In-game Visual Novel – Unlock a comic-book page for every map you beat to discover the secrets of LOEK III.
  • Progression System – Increase your rank and unlock new weapons, towers, and perks.
  • 4-Player Co-op – Progress through the storyline yourself or team up with other players whenever you want.

Sanctum 2 is the perfect game to play with 3 of your friends. The game combines the mechanics of an FPS game and the principles of a tower-defense game. Progress through the story or play with other players through the multiplayer feature. Sure, Sanctum 2 might be fun for a few days or so, but soon, it gets quite stale. The game is repetitive and there isn’t much variation in the gameplay. It might not be a great idea to spend $15 on a game you’ll end up forgetting in a few days. Heck, I’ll be surprised if you’re still playing it after a week has passed!Image result for sanctum 2
