The Deep Devil's Reef is a premium tower in Kingdom Rush: Vengeance, available as an in-app purchase that costs $2.99. It functions as both a Magic Tower, by firing magical bolts at enemies, and a Melee Tower, by summoning two Greenfins (or Redspines, once upgraded to level 4) to block enemies.

Description

From the depths of the sea, Bluegales emerge to zap enemies with their powerful magic while a couple of skillful Greenfins stop them in place.

Strategy

The Deep Devils' Reef is a versatile tower which combines the might of two separate classes; the mage and the barracks. However, "might" may be an overstatement here; the mage's damage is not devastating, especially in early tiers, while only two troops are spawned at a time. This consideration makes the Reef poor for situations where one would need superficial firepower or opponent stalling.

However, this does not mean that this tower has no use. It is great for a defense-in-depth strategy, where waves of opponents will have to pass through multiple obstructions and will be withered at each. Greenfins can take some damage, comparable to their orc counterparts, and thus can be used to block of enemies while another tower or the bluegale deals "chipping" damage. Each minor stronghold supported by a Reef might only wither the hordes down by a small margin, but the tower is more affordable than most mages at low tiers and thus can be built in number, making a large number of outposts feasible.

This tower truly shines at tier 4, making it an ideal late-game defense. The bluegale is capable of dealing great damage against armored targets at this point, with damage comparable to a high level infernal mage. The redspines, with their ranged attack and hefty health, can take a beating and return it, but keep in mind that this tower is generally weak against magic armored enemies.

Trivia

  • The Deep Devil's Reef features three enemies first seen in the Rising Tides mini-campaign from Kingdom Rush: Frontiers; the Bluegale, Greenfin and Redspine
  • "Sleep with the fishes"
    • A phrase pertaining to gangster cliché. Anyone that was killed or had their body disposed of in a river, ocean or significant body of water was described as "sleeping with the fishes" as they were at the bottom of the waterbed, where the fish lived.
  • Deep Devil names do not appear to have any significant meaning or reference. Like the Orc Warriors Den, they are simple, two or three syllable names.
