Tower Defense

Average Rating


Ratings closed


A hybrid tower-defense/RPG (Role Playing Game) game setup in a dark and gritty fantasy medieval world. Drop colored gems on your base units in different combinations to create heroes with unique and powerful abilities. The difficult choices you make have consequences and give you access to different travelling companions and spells. Explore the world of Irael through many hand-made fantasy maps levels. Level up your characters and use them in different combinations on the battlefield. Learn to defeat waves combining many different types of enemies ranging from swarming goblins to powerful sword wielding demons. You are Arlong Strongheart, Adept Protector of the Brotherhood of the Shield. You are an old knight tired of the in-fighting and political intrigues in his own order. It is time for you to leave the order and spend the last years of your life as an errand knight, defending those in need of protection, and dispensing justice.

When I launch the game, the only thing that happens is a text file opening that says:

java -jar defender-full-1.03.jar

I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit. Any ideas?

I saw the same thing. It looks like Desura is trying to execute something that isn't a script.

Back up ~/.desura/games/defender-story/defender somewhere.

Then modify it to read:


exec java -Xmx150m -jar defender-full-1.03.jar

The Xmx150m increases the JVM heap size; may not be necessary for you, but I wasn't able to run it without doing this.

Hi Mate,

I tried to balance the game in such a way that somewhat challenging to begin with. In order to gain levels and strengthen your units, you’re going to have to kill enemies, and even fail your first few stages,( your xp will compounded, so you should be able to level up quite quickly)...
