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:

Bug fixes:

- 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

Took me forever!

I usually do not like tower def games much since they are so hard to beat, but this one allows leveling up, which is great. I spent several days maxing out my level to make getting a brilliant on level 15 possible (stupid ninjas!) I developed a great strategy for dealing with ninjas, and that is to place burning temples near the entrance to instantly hit them and deal major damage. The AOE hits invisible ones too. Unfortunately this is hard on the last level, so I placed my Burning Temples around the gems and filled the map with crypts. These damaged the ninjas quickly enough so that they were no longer invisible by the time they go to the gems and BAM, AOE goes out and kills all of them. Unfortunately, getting those 3 Burning Temples set up and leveling them took some major luck since on the last level the enemies can all spawn on the same side and screw you royally. This is not an issue unless you want brilliant, however, so I won't dock any point for that.

One glitch I noticed: Sometimes they pick up a gem that has warped back as if it never warped back at all. This is a bit annoying but not really game breaking since you get EXP even if you lose, which is great.

Never gets old

It was great to find that another great defense game had gotten the Weekly User's Choice, as I think that may in fact be my favorite kind of game. This was great because it got harder as you might expect, so do not get arrogant. I loved the different designs of the enemies, and how you still manage to be original despite how many people have taken their crack at this genre! I can just speed it up and make it go as fast as I want if I am in a hurry. There are not as many things to build, so it is a little easier to understand than some other games here. This gives off a good feeling of a great quest!
