Protect your gems from being stolen by "good" heroes in this tower defense game. Overlord, you have all the power of orcs, undead and demons.


Use mouse (hold SHIFT to build multiple towers or cast multiple spells).
The game has a bult-in tutorial.
Try to annihilate the enemies before they grab a gem, but even if they do, you'll have a chance to annihilate them on their way back and you'll save the gem.

Version 1.10:
Cursed Treasure with updated graphics and 30 levels is now available on iPad! s/app/cursed-treasure-hd/

Hotfix 1.09.002:
- Added missing "%" symbols in descriptions of the Bounty Hunting and the Scorching Treasure skills

Vesrion 1.09:
- Fixed bug: ~30% loss of mana regeneration rate when the "Attack" button is clicked

Version 1.08:

New features:
- Hotkeys added (see built-in hints, 1,2,3 - towers, Q,W,E - spells, SPACE - start attack, F - toggle high speed on/off)
- Sound effects and music can be switched on/off separately

Balance changes:
- Assasin's "Dancing Blade" ability (50% chance of avoiding damage) is replaced by the "Mystic Blade" ability (diminishes damage by 30-90%)
- Recharge rate of Ghost Crypts is increased to 2 seconds
- Recharge rate of Banshee Crypt is increased to 1.5 seconds
- Ballista Dens and Catatult Den missiles speed is increased

Bug fixes:
- "grayed out Attack button and neverending mission" bug is fixed.
- Savegame system is changed. We can't guarantee that the bug stalling the game on the choose profile screen ("Level 999" bug) is fully fixed, but at least you will see "The save data is corrupted" message and will be able to play the game anyway.

+ many small changes and fixes

Great game but....

I found a new bug. I'm currently stuck on level 12 with no enemies coming at me. I killed the last champion, he dropped the gem and there are no more attack waves yet I didn't get the victory screen.

Best Tower Defence Ever!

Great game! Very simple to learn but very hard master. Very very addictive. So much depth and strategy in such a simple concept. The game is very balanced but its little bit to difficult in the end and the tech trees are to long to max. The ninjas are pain in the a%% and overpowered especialy the Champion Ninjas which are #1 reason for losing levels. Would love to see a seq. with more units and towers. Great job. Oh and the music and art is very cool as well.

Good But...

On Certain Levels, Mainly 5 and 7 For Me, I Can't Use The Attack Botton Anymore, And When I Kill The Last Boss, It Just keeps Playing And Doesn't Go Onto The Next Level, Please Try To Fix This Because It Is A Pretty Good Game.

This is a great TD game with lots of new features, good graphics, interface, and game balance. Probably the best TD I've seen in a while.

I've gotten "Brilliant" on all levels. For ninjas, you need towers at the entrance to trigger their smoke bomb, then towers at the gem so that they are killed when they become visible again. Meteors can be used as backup. For ninja champions in lvl 14 and 15, the only way to beat them without having them touch your gems is to place only chilling crypt towers at the entrance, so they can be frozen/feared when they enter. Then, you can take care of them. Chilling towers can miss the fear, so there is some luck involved.

As many have said, the crypt tower is the most powerful and versatile. The only thing it's lacking is quick damage (at the entrance, and to kill ninjas at the back).

For support damage, the den and temple are reasonably interchangeable early on. Later, the den (especially the orcish den) is much more powerful than the temple because (1) dens benefit from increased fire rate, so damage output is higher and (2) can kill ninjas in one hit. So these should be considerations for investing points into skills. If you just want to play safe, the temple's burning gem and gem return skills are useful in the short run, but the den's forestry skills allow you to play more aggressively.

Of course, the best upgrades in general are the XP/Cost upgrades
