Explore cyberspace and battle rogue AIs in your mission to take back control of the internet. Place towers and add upgrades to programs. Use scripts to directly attack enemies and interact with the map. Gain new programs, upgrades, and scripts as you explore 25 unique levels.

Some general hints:
-If there's multiple entrances, place towers after the paths merge together.
-Usually the best place to put towers is in spots where they hit different parts of the path that are far away from each other. Hitting one long stretch of path can be worse then hitting two small far away sections of the path.
-Watch what enemies are listed for each level and plan your towers and upgrades based on that.
-Scripts only temporarily use memory. You never lose memory using them.
-Recycling towers gives you 100% of your memory back.

An amazing strategy tower game

This game rocked! I normally don't like tower games, usually due to the excessive number of towers and difficulty in following their upgrades. You system simplified that greatly with the color-coded upgrades, meaning I don't have to hover over a tower to see what level it is. Really, each level almost becomes a puzzle, which is supported by the fact that you have a solutions guide with pictures and order of towers and upgrades. I had a blast with it. A couple of notes:
1) I have defeated everything and gotten all of the cubes, but I have not received the medals for it. I only got the first two medals.
2) I love the Ping Tower, but it is almost too powerful. I was able to coast through levels that gave me lots of trouble before, with it.
3) I don't really like the random color scheme shtick. I get trying to add some difficulty to the game, but it sucks having to rely on luck (via waiting) in a strategy game; those two concepts are opposite one another by definition. Somebody said making it so that you can't just do all the same color would suffice, and I agree.

Overall, Great Game, and I look forward to the sequel immensely!

CoreSector responds:

Your profile shows you have all the medals. Unfortunately I haven't figured out why the newgrounds medal popup doesn't work in this game.

The balance and random color issues will definitely be something to look into for any future sequel.
