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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


I really enjoyed this game - though it was slightly annoying when they turned invincible for a while after getting hit, the game overall was fun and very enjoyable. I liked the HoMM feel to it, and once I finally got the winning strategy down, it was fun to implement.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

very good game

I had some bugs like when i have bought some army and can't tell them not to go out.
Pretty good Idea with the traps and the diggers! But I played it with my friend, so we managed to dig and aim at the same time.. otherwise it would be a big problem.
Same problem with the spirit - doesn't come while i'm sending troops...
Overall the game was a bit easy.. especially the last boss.. The hardest boss was the one before the last one.. with the 2 swords. I couldn't defeat him 3-4 times.. so I was forced to sell some score for gold and stone.
Keep it up! Can't wait for the second wave of the Dark Lord ;)
