Sanctum defined the FPS-TD genre and places the player right into the frenetic fray with tight first-person shooter gameplay mechanics. Gamers take the role as Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her home town, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To successfully defend land, players must construct and upgrade a labyrinth of defensive structures and towers. When the havoc starts and the wave of baddies is unleashed, gamers jump right into the action with  fully-upgradeable weapons to play a key role in the defense.

Sanctum has taken the best features from FPSs and tower defense games to create something totally unique. The highly anticipated sequel to Sanctum is coming in 2013.
