AegisM is a competitive tower defense game crossed with an action shooter releases for Linux and Windows on Steam. Gameplay also includes multiplayer game modes. And we should see a new Linux update today as well.
So gameplay allows you to play alone or with up to 3 others. While working to achieve the highest survival mode scores. Or simply compete in the Player vs Player mode. Showing your strategy is unbeatable and increase your ELO rating.
AegisM is a competitive tower defence game with a twist. Since gameplay combines tower defence with a wave survival/top down action shooter. Then adds more new and exciting elements to the mix. And once you’re ready to prove yourself even more. You can also take to the Player vs Player mode.
AegisM is not like other tower defense game releases. There are no waves of enemies, it’s never ending, gradually getting harder and harder until you can’t survive anymore and your strategy fails you.

Features worth noting:
- Unique Bosses
As the game progresses and you last longer, you get introduced to new bosses. Each boss has a unique ability such as speed boosting, protecting, skull distracting and much more. Did we mention you don’t just have to worry about land? There’s also various types of air units to beat!
- Skill Points
At the start of every game you get to spend 5 skill points on making your character unique. Put points into movement speed, reduced reload speed, build cost reduction, movement speed and more! Build a character around your style of shooter gameplay.
- Multiple Towers, each with 3 levels
There’s currently 11 different types of tower, each with 3 levels in this tower defense. See the stats for every tower, which player owns it, what the range of the tower is and what will happen if you upgrade it. The detail releases when you simply click on it. You can also configure shortcut keys to speed build and upgrade.
- Multiple Environments with Dynamic Weather
Fight it out in the Forest, Desert or even indoors in the crypts! There’s a full day and night cycle (this only affects the game visually), along with rain and snow – the world you’re fighting in feels alive! There’s also interactive elements such as lifts, dynamically changing levels and flame walls to add yet more variety.
- Mini Games
There is an ever growing list of competitive mini games that range from shooters to maze and timed type of games. Each mini game has a competitive leaderboard, so you can even show the world you’re the fastest builder or runner out there.
Streamer vs Twitch
This mode is probably one of those features we all take for granted now. Since viewers can interactive with the Streamer vs Twitch mode.
So the way it works, every 3 minutes your chat gets to vote on what enemy they would like to send you. And if you defeat the enemy you score a point. If the enemy reaches your base, the chat scores a point. This is more for fun than competitive though.
Since gameplay is balanced, with a lot of beta testing already. This is also a good sign to keep players coming back for more. Probably one of those details that caught my attention. Seeing gameplay is not just a tower defense but also a shooter on Linux and Windows.
