Cheers from the Game Developer Conference (GDC) at San Francisco! We’re meeting game developers from Blizzard, Riot Games, Twitch, Amazon, and many more. And we’re telling them about Legion TD 2.

Today, we’d like to share about how Legion TD stacks up against Legion TD 2.

The original Legion TD launched in 2009. Seven years later, people are still hooked! It’s a game that is easy to pick up, but hard to put down.

What to do when you’re stuck in traffic? Play Legion TD of course!

Legion TD is just plain fun. That’s why Legion TD 2 will have the same core gameplay as the original. If you like Legion TD, you’ll love Legion TD 2.
