When Orcs Attack

A fast-paced 3D tower defense game aimed at the Mac and Windows download market, and published by MrJoy Inc. When Orcs Attack brought several RTS mechanics to a more casual audience including pathfinding and spellcasting. It offered a variety of interesting game modes, including the more traditional – such as open maze, fixed maze, and capture-the-flag – and more novel ones – such as ‘Pachinko’ in which orcs would follow one of dozens of possible randomized paths.

When Orcs Attack was followed by Epic Tower Defense, a web-based variant (using the Unity3D plugin) launched on Shockwave.com, Hordes of Orcs, a much refined version published by Freeverse and Hordes of Orcs 2, also published by Freeverse and featuring new game elements, significant graphical improvements and a new UI.
