Born of Fire TD is a hybrid defense and RPG game, with elements that twist the rules of classic TDs.

Seven heroes of four classes (demon incarnate, kitsune, king and shield-maiden) await your command in 40 battles. Slay monsters from the deepest pits of Hells to the fields of Heavens, using over 40 spells. Enjoy a detailed story of the sword&sorcery kind.

A bit of help:
Arrows of WASD to scroll the map.
Esc to abort placing a hero or interactive skill.
T opens the skill tree for the selected hero.
ALT+click a skill in the skill tree decreases one level.
R toggles the skill range for the selected hero.
J toggles the monster HP.

In addition, P pauses, Q cycles through quality settings, M toggles the music and N toggles the sound.

Or check the in-game help or the game guide for detailed informations.

This was a very fun game to play and the best I have played in awhile. What makes it so effective is that it combines the elements of an RPG game along with a tower defense game. I am not a fan of RPGs, but I do really like defense games. The graphics in this are really good too, especially how much detail is given to each and every character. It's too bad you can not summon a bunch of them at one time. It is still very fun to play and quite original.

Congrats on getting this many views as it is an innovative enough game to deserve it. It is hard to look through all those instructions and you never know when you're done. Here are the instructions in a nutshell. Place the characters on the board and just click on the enemy nearby to point them in the direction to attack. The intro had great animation as well.

Keeps remembering me the song. :)

I can't help thinking to "Born Of Fire" by Slayer every time i play.
Anyway, pretty nice game, i went quite far by now, and i plan to finish it.
The only thing i didn't like was about the "found" units than join you later in the game, they have the same sprites as the starting characters, on the game map, and the same skills.

Awesome =D

Loved it. Great depth and storyline and the characters were excellent =] Only thing I'd suggest is making more of them.

Well done!

Hell Yeah

I'm really surprised and pleased with this game, loved the ambientation (remembered of Gaunlet for me) and the heroes' improvement.

The only thing I can say is "MORE PLEASE!!"


I've had some fun playing this even though I wish there could of been at least a couple more characters and one more skill slot. If you ever made a Dungeons and Dragons version of this that would be awesome with these classes...

Fighter, Barbarian, Paladin, Bard, Rogue, Ranger, Monk, Cleric, Wizard and Sorcerer.
