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



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Most awesome tower defense game I have played.

The game is very addictive and fun, a nice combo.

P.S.: PsycoHazard: You can kill ninjas easily with crypts.

You really need to make a backup system not-by-cookies. Check Papa's freezeria here in NG to check an idea, not all ppl has the time to lvl up a full branch and then start over all again after he closes the browser by accident.

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

Ive been playing this game for like 3 days now and im Lv 32, still on my way to max the Undead tree. I had never got so adicted to a TD game in my gaming life.
Its so adictive that you wish there were infinite maps to play on.

Some things id like to see to be included:

-Hotkeys for casting spells
-Level creator
-Increased EXP for evileye temple (that or maps with 60+ waves), its like impossible to upgrade a temple to the last level when you choose to make it an evileye temple.
-More maps!!!!!

top of the TD

Best TD game I've come across, I really hope irysoft brings out a sequel or more, it is that awesome.
I'd suggest making the difficulty increment harder or maybe more levels next time as you don't even need to reach top level bonuses to finish all the levels with a brilliant rating, or adding some hidden levels when you increase your bonus level after finishing all the level with brilliant.
I see that they have ver 1.07 on their site, is it coming over?
Anyway finished it once, and probably will again: top notch.
