Defend the Kingdom - Official Trailer
Defend the Kingdom just completed its Alpha Testing stage and may not be available for download. Stay tuned for more updates!

Overview

​Defend the Kingdom is Kingdomverse's first mobile game available on iOS and Android. Players select 5 out of 48 Monkey Legend Heroes and bring them into an epic tower-defence battle. They can either choose to play the game in PvP (Player-versus-Player) or Co-op (Cooperative) mode.
The once peaceful Monkey Kingdom has taken to arms against a vicious army that is bringing chaos and destruction to their realm!
It's time to gather your units and lead your Monkey Legend Heroes into battle against the Demon Empire. Build, strategize and outwit your opponents to restore peace to The Kingdom.

Gameplay

The objective of the game is to survive waves of enemies and prevent them from reaching the base crystal.
  • Every player starts with a fixed amount of SP, and SP is consumed to randomly spawn a Monkey Legend hero.
  • Killing monsters give you SP.
  • Spawning 2 Monkey Legend heroes of the same power-rating gives you the option of combining them into a more powerful Monkey Legend.
  • You can spend SP to selectively upgrade the powers of your Monkey Legends which could grant them increased attack damage, attack speed, or special abilities.
  • There are 5 types of bosses, each with their own unique abilities.
  • You gain PvP or Co-op tokens when you win battles. These tokens could prove to be very useful in the future!

PvP Mode

In PvP mode, the first player who loses all 3 lives when enemies touch their base crystal loses the battle.
  • When a boss touches the base crystal, 2 lives are lost.
  • Waves alternate between normal and boss waves.
  • Normal waves last 120 seconds.
  • You gain and lose trophies when you win or lose. These determine your ranking on the ladderboards.

Co-op Mode

In Co-op mode, both players work together to try to defend a common base crystal.
  • Both players lose when a single enemy touches the base crystal.
  • Bosses appear every 10 waves.

Closed Alpha Launch

An Alpha Test was conducted between 15 Aug 2022 and 22 Aug 2022. As a promotional campaign, a week before the test all Monkey Legends appeared to be jailed. Everyone was curious about what was happening and frantically discussed how to free their monkeys from jail. It was later revealed that their monkeys were only able to jailbreak after downloading the game and successfully connecting the wallet to our Defend the Kingdom website.
