IMG Reviews Hordes Of Orcs 2

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Freeverse's fantasy tower defense title, Hordes of Orcs 2. The sequel follows the events which occur after "The Glowing Portal of Really Bad Things That We Should Have Bricked-Up a Long Time Ago" has been foolishly un-bricked again, and the Orcs return. Hordes of Orcs 2 features an upgraded arsenal, new enemy units, improved AI, and six different game modes.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

In Freeverse's variant, you face off against the titular Hordes of Orcs who are trying to destroy your village, pillage your treasure, make off with your gems or other dastardly deeds. It's all very Warcraft-esque as the orcs come through a glowing portal in every map. You have 6 different towers, a wall, and 4 magic spells to aid your orc stopping missions. In the basic mode orcs start at one side of the map, and simply wish to go through the portal on the other side where your tasty village awaits destruction.

You start with a small amount of gold, and a brief period in which to place a tower or two before they start coming through. Do you buy several arrow towers, or spend more on an expensive fire tower? There is a small amount of strategy to what you pick, because not only are you limited by your gold, but some orcs have a resistance to a tower type, which forces you to mix up your towers or face failure as the waves gets harder. Been zapping those orcs with a row of lightning towers? Well, you won't be laughing when a wave of mini lightning orcs runs right by them into your portal.
