Agreed! It looks awesome and the Pause and Back button are a great addition. I like the look of the towers, but it makes me wonder if we can expect a similar graphics update for the enemies.

And I'm thinking maybe the font on the top left is a bit too round compared to the font of the Tower select section? It looks a bit too sweet for the game.

Now let's see if I can finally come up with a strategy to get past the Back Bend level.........
The new towers seem to be too expensive to use in the beginning of the level, and they shoot rather slow as well. So you'd need a lot of them, which means you've got to have massive amounts of money. Best to start with the old yellow towers (400 + 400 + 400 + 400 etc.) and the red towers I guess?

Glad you are liking it :-)

The new lightning towers are designed mostly to put near the end to eliminate anything that manages to get passed all your other stuff. You don't have to update them all the way for them to be very good either. They play a different role in the later levels of endless :-D
