Archmage Defense (Castle Defense) out today!

Archmage Defense $1 seems to have 2nd best graphics in this genre of Castle Defense games behind Knights Onrush. The other two Defend Your Castle probably 3rd and Stickwars maybe 4th.

Only played a bit but so far it's sweet. Drag from skull to aim lightning bolt at enemies. Maybe showing screenshots of help section will help. Last screenshot is like the upgrade section.

Quick note. Didn't figure this out till day 8 or so. But you can draw like in a zigzag if that makes sense for mutliple combo chain lightning. In other words I was just dragging in a straight line most of the time but draw a path and you can hit tons and tons of enemies. Only on Day 12 and got the fire circle. This is really awesome fun. Days are pretty short but it does seem to up the ante gradually each day.

So basically upgrades ARE:


Mana (the purple bar)
Chain Lightning (draw path)
Fire (draw circle)
Frost touch (double tap)
Summon Skeleton (automatically fights for you)


Can't wait to try the bad boy skeleton out.
