Art of Defense: Heroes and Enemies

Heroes. As you progress through the weapon upgrade tree, the heroes of the AOD squad will unlock. Each hero has its own characteristics. The hero can be installed in the corresponding tower, but only in one on the playing field. It is also possible to transplant it to another similar tower at any time. Heroes gain experience with every shot and hit. When the enemy is destroyed, more experience is added. As soon as the hero reaches the threshold of the current experience, it becomes possible to increase his level. With the level of the hero, his characteristics also grow.

Types and varieties of enemies. Enemies are divided into ground, air, flying along the roads and air, flying regardless of the trajectory of the main path. For each type of enemy, you must apply your own battle tactics. Some airborne objects can ignore obstacles. Types of enemies:
