"It seems the attack at Sape Oasis was merely a distraction, and Lord Malagar has escaped towards Buccaner's Den.
We have no choice but to cross the treacherous Dunes of Despair. There is no time to go around them, so beware of the shifting sands, as the mysterious beasts crawling through them have cause the doom of many an experienced explorer!"

Dunes of Despair is the fourth level in Kingdom Rush: Frontiers.
