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.

Beat this game.. the second to last level was the toughest. Anyway, great game! I didn't like the fact that if an enemy had been damged by one attack, it would lag the second wave following right after it. So I guess you could say that timing would have be a great factor when attacking. Hint to those playing this.. Deploy your tank behind your wall, the lasers will still go through and once your wall is down the tower will hold the enemy just at the point where your catapult will still do damage.

I would now like to congratulate you for being awarded a 'Certification of not Crap' for this game. Well done. The story could be a little more drawn as i was surprised by the vow the humans took at the end. It seemed a little too harsh for them but you set up a good story for the next one. Great.
