The original Dungeon Defenders was one of my original "binge games" when it came out in 2011. The core gameplay was there, but the added RPG and action elements were a great hook that kept me playing long after Iíd lost interest in more "passive" Tower Defense games. Dungeon Defenders II, which hit Steam Early Access a few weeks ago, offers everything that made the original a favorite, but with a few upgrades to keep things interesting.
Dungeon Defenders II follows the same basic concept as the original. The Early Access version offers four character classes to choose from -- Huntress, Monk, Apprentice, and Squire Ė each with their own specialties. Your goal is to protect a central area in each map from five progressively harder hordes of enemies.
