Very nice little game, downloaded and executed with no problems. One thing to note, the turrets miss the targets quite often when shooting, is this a bug or an intended feature?  Grin

Not that many strategical options yet, just need to spam the first tower but besides that it works fine! Sounds sound good, sprites look good.

Just one thing, is the very (very) small radius of the freeze tower intentional?

some feedback, good!

@DrHalfway: they don't miss target indeed Tongue simply target move fast and enemies move too, I'll investigate about this

@Gjallar: yeah no strategic options, by my plan is to extend gameplay. Sprite looks good? Thanks! Small radius of freeze tower is intentional, because that tower have great power

What do you think about game balance? And maximum level reached?

Tried it out - works fine.

But please implement a Pause-function - I simply died the first time I started it because I was too slow with building towers.
Also, every time I tried to save money for the 2nd tier tower I simply died before I could build it Sad
And - make a way to sell towers for like 3/4 of their price - I used all slots up and couldn't build anything.

Nice game, maybe make the initial delay before enemies start to come a bit longer to give players more time to think about what they need to do. As mentioned above a way to remove/sell towers would be nice and a possible further development could be to have difficulties depending on how much money you start with at the beginning of every round. Also, the map was slightly misleading as to which path the enemies would take, such as a gap between the grey rocks, but that might be intentional.

A nice game though, could become something really good.
