UPDATE 04/21/2009: Update Boss and Elf Warrior.

Developer's Note:

After several months of development, polishing and exchanging ideas with many great players, reviewers and sponsors, we are finally able to release The Great Siege on Newgrounds.

The game features a great combination of impressive defense gameplay, sharp graphics, competitive balance and immersive theme music. The building system in the game pays tribute to Heroes of Might and Magic III, one of my personal favorite, while the battle system includes elements such as the catapult, tank transformation, and traps that make the gameplay more dynamic without being overwhelmingly complex. The Great Siege is generally a very simple game but it has a subtle depth of strategy that embraces many possibilities.

it was my great pleasure to work with Selcuk and his group on the original music score for The Great Siege. The amount of time they've put into the works and the creative energy and inspiration they brought into this game through their music are incredible. Every music track is not only perfectly fitting to the game's theme, but also elevates the atmosphere of the game to another level.

Above all, I really hope you guys will enjoy this game.

Let's keep PLAYING and keep in touch.

Entertaining enough

Well it was interesting for sure and after a few minutes you do need more life into the game as it does get stale after a bit but I have come to enjoy this game for what it is and liked it but you could ad much more content bringing in more fun and entertaining elements to this piece. It was an enjoyable game but just needs Abit more to it as it does get stale kind of quick but besides that I liked what you put out

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Needs some extra stuff to keep the player entertaining enough maybe a bonus game or something

~X~

really nice game. only annoying thing was, that i couldn't turn the music off but leave the sound effects on. otherwise its really great.

waste time

Is that all to upgrade.. waste time to play; better have a very cool hero

wtf is this ....

Got bored 1 minute into game. With the catapult wtf man.

Good game

The game was great !

But i didnt know that footmens coud dig a trap :O and the tank could transform :S
But that was my bad i gues..

The thing you can change is the archers.. They were useless.. And you should make a hero!! Thay way it would be fantastic
