Breach TD is almost here: The spiritual sequel to Squadron TD (the popular StarCraft II mod) launches May 27th on iOS!



BREACH TD is an action-packed mix of tower defense, real-time strategy and MOBA-like gameplay. Starting as a successful crowdfunded project on Kickstarter and developed by Space Rhino Games (the largest studio in Puerto Rico), Breach TD delivers on the campaign’s promises with top-notch graphics, furious tower defense action, 50 mighty Guardians to choose from -- and engaging strategic combat unlike anything else on mobile.

THE STORY SO FAR
First there was the Void, a dimension of darkness and fear. Then a Breach suddenly appeared, allowing the Void army to get through and mount an invasion. Now all that stands between the Void and our world is a group of brave Guardians -- powerful beings in different shapes and sizes, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Seal the Breach!

GAMEPLAY
In Breach TD, each player defends a Bastion tower from menacing Void monsters with a choice of four possible Guardians, aided by powerful relics (Battle Cards) and Mercenaries. The enemy attacks two worlds at a time -- and the player who fails gets consumed by the unrelenting Void, losing the tug of war. Weakening the opposing team's forces is critical to a successful defense. As the game progresses, players are able to deploy Mercenaries to defend their lanes or to overwhelm the opposing team.


Before each battle, players pick from an ever-expanding roster of Guardians and then choose two Battle Cards that bestow buffs such as healing (“Hand of the Ancients”), fire damage (“Fire Nova,” a fire tornado), heavy damage to a small area (“Isochronal Annihilator”), and much more.

Each match is divided into two different phases:

(1) Building
Players have a limited amount of time to buy and strategically place their Guardians on a grid for battle. During this phase, players may also upgrade their Plasma Reactor and Mercenaries tiers.

(2) Combat
Guardians defend their bases and battle it out in the middle of the lane. Combat can get intense, since players can deploy Battle Cards as well as Mercenaries to overwhelm the opponent or as a means of defense. Battle Cards have a cooldown period, and Mercenaries have a Plasma cost -- so it’s important to plan every move carefully.


DEVELOPER QUOTE
Michael A. Hoyos, founder and CEO, Space Rhino Games:

“Breach TD offers players an extremely polished, intense tactical experience not usually found on mobile. We wanted to create an extremely competitive tower defense game that requires careful planning and perfect timing from players -- a game that rewards daring moves as well as skillful team-building. We hope to meet the expectations of our Kickstarter backers and fans alike, going above and beyond what was promised. See you at the Breach!”
