The plot of the game- Kingdom Rush Frontiers app
You are the defender of Linirea and you must reinforce the ancient stronghold of Hammerhold against the invading evil forces. During the battles, you encounter waves of enemies and must place your defence to destroy them. You have at your disposal a range of towers such as an archer tower, a mage tower and a barracks. Furthermore, you have a range of different skills such as the ability to call reinforcement to help you fight. You can also call heroes into the fray who you can move around the map and get to fight in tough situations.
Tap your troops through an epic adventure as you defend exotic lands from dragons, man-eating plants, and ghastly denizens of the underworld, all with flashy new towers, levels, heroes, and more goodies to help you crush your foes to a pulp.

During the levels, you can ameliorate and bolster the multiple attributes of every tower to make them even better, fire faster, as well as drop the training time for employable units. In addition to that, you can also conjoin an extra line of defence as there are three special abilities you can upgrade in your arsenal. These abilities however can be unlocked later on as you progress through and must be utilized at times when the towers aren’t damaging enough.
You can also conscript units on the ground to offer backup for your knights or apply a “nuking” ability for certain emergencies (such as a flaming meteor). Both have a decent duration of cool-down time (even more so for the nuking ability) hence you’ll need to be savvy with them to utilize them at the perfect time. The third instant ability is optional for you to pick by purchasing items at the in-game store. There is a certain amount of gems that you will earn offered for purchasing items between stages.
