Pleasantly surprised! It's kept me occupied for the last hour or so.
Definitely geared towards buying coinage but the way it is now is a nice challenge (on level 9) and kind of fun.

It keeps the pressure on well, just teasing you with being able to afford the next income boost but not quite safe to splosh the dosh on it as another strong wave comes at just the wrong time.

There is an arena mode too (endless) that's pretty intense. Got to wave 31 and earnt about 700 coins I think, so not too bad (with the next character unlock I want being 5k). So you can earn your way until you get to the higher end characters that are in the 45-80k+ bracket).

It's got permanent stats, loads of upgrades and perks to collect for, looks to be a lot of characters and something to do with spells (not too sure but looks like you gotta press a combo of 3 buttons to enter a 'code).

Interesting use of pixels art too... The pixelated characters can rotate smoothly, so the large pixels rotate in retina if that makes sense. Anyway looks good package and IMO should not be overlooked!

Most definitely worth a look. I just lost way more time than I care to think about playing this. Got to level 28 on my first try on Arena Mode. Just had another go after putting some more time into Classic Mode and managed level 80. The tension towards the end was superb. If you like this sort of thing you'll like this sort of thing (he said tautologously).

Super bonus points for using a variant of tautology. Love that word, and it's so rarely useable.

On topic, this looks mighty interesting. I'll have to check it out.

I like the mechanics, I like games like this. My biggest complaint at the moment (I just started) it seems to upgrade units you have to spend money. Hopefully I will see otherwise

Edit: So I just got a gem to upgrade with, I don't know how common they are though

Nope you'll earn gems to upgrade units. I just earned my first . I think this is going to be a bit of a grind but fun as hell - if you know what I mean And who doesn't love bumpy little pixelated knights and wizards ?

Ha ha , too slow on the reply .
