Surprised to not see a thread on this. Seems like a pretty cool tower defender so far.

I'm not really fond of this odd technique where you create pixel art... then blur it. From the detail it seems the sprites were created at that resolution so why make it fuzzy? It's a good looking game... but the perfectionist in me is slightly annoyed.

Yeah, it was those I was talking about. Maybe it's not very noticeable to other people, I spend a lot of time in Photoshop and whatnot so I get really strict about everything looking perfect.
