Kingdom Rush Origins is yet another entry into the vast but niche tower defense sub-genre of strategy games. Contrary to the name, Origins is actually the third entry to the Kingdom Rush series. I have not played the previous entries so I cannot compare it to its prequels (well, sequels in a timeline sense), but I do know a thing or two about tower defense after all. As this is an origin story, Origins will explain how the main villain of the last two entries, Veznan, became corrupt with power. Malicia, Queen of the Twilight Elves, takes the role of villainess for this story.
