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

I don't think I've ever gotten up early before work to play an internet flash game. I've been playing this for two days and I'm starting to get upset that I'm almost done. This is the best game I've played in a real long time. The towers are extremely well balanced and there's a need for each one. The leveling system is great too. This is just a great game and I'm really hoping you make another one.

Best Tower Defense Game I ever played

Well this was on of the best tower defense games ever! Really! Very nice!
Only 2 things I would change or add.
1.A way to reset all skillpoints
2.EXP for the gold you have at the end of all waves

The game is basically quite simple, many defense games have a lot of different towers, spells and all sorts of stuff you need to know if you want to succeed. This game doesn't. It does have a nice selection of enemies though. It manages to be challenging (had to try a few levels several times, made it through 13 of them so far) but not impossible, you can always come back, or even build up some skills first. But mostly the game is just really addicting. At least as long as you're not there yet. I like the "story" (as far as there is one) that the heroes can be the bad guys for once. Keep those hands off those gems.

2nd game ftw!

I've gotta say, I LOVE this game.
I think a level editor would be a good idea for Cursed treasure 2.
That and possibly more enemies. Other than that perfect! This is one of my favorite tower defense games.

If you make a second game or an update on this...

I will absolutely shit. I only play Defense games on Newgrounds and this game is superb. I even made a profile JUST to favorite this game and review/rate it just to show you my appreciation. And to NEVER lose this game again.

My only critique, and it isn't really a good one either. I just want more towers. What you've done was great but something more in the next game. Which I'm sure you'll do.

And to those complaining about the ninjas? Lame. Cut down a tree right from their spawn point / plant a tower, so that way when they get to your tower(s) they won't be impervious. Not a defect from IrlySoft, actual difficulty from the game.

Think smart, not hard.
