Description: Set in the near future, where Eartheans have been turned into Sheeple, you set out on an adventure to restore humanity. You build towers, place traps, and use weapons, to defend objectives from hordes of the evil empire. Ash of Legends is an upcoming, made for VR, first-person, base-building, tower defence, strategy game. Featuring an epic story, multiple heroes, verdant landscapes, and new game mechanics not seen before in a VR tower defence game. Options include smooth, teleport, head-based, or controller-based locomotion, vignette, and more.

Review: While there is no storyline or reason to this game as of yet ‘Ash of Legends’ is still a pretty interesting tower-defence style game in which you are encouraged to get up close and personal to your enemies. The first thing you will notice is that you need to basically make your own levels here. The walls, platforms as well as all the traps and gun turrets need to be placed down or built by you which does give it a strangely open-world feel. While I did enjoy this part of the game it soon gets so boring that you don’t want to go on and build more. I like my tower defence games, I really do, but even I can’t recommend this for £11.39. It’s just too sparse and repetitive with no real polish in any department. If it was a lot cheaper I might have given this a silver award, but until it is I don’t think I can suggest anyone give this a go.
