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.

Simply Stunning

Well, I'm sure you're sick of hearing this by now (or maybe not, I dunno), but this is quite honestly one of the best TDs I've played in...ever. The graphics are simple but beautiful, the enemies are diverse and inspire a sense of accomplishment upon killing them, the levels are challenging but not impossible, and the towers are quite easily the most fun to upgrade I've ever had.

All that said, please don't take this next part as harsh criticism, just suggestions that might make a fun game even more fun. A create-your-own-level mode, or an endless mode, would be a fantastic addition. Also, a way of sharing upgrade nodes, maybe a sort of memory-sharing system, would be pretty cool. Like say putting an Infector down and filling up it's upgrades, then putting a Compressor right below it and having it share the upgrades installed on the Infector, and then a Scanner below THAT, also sharing, etc etc. Deleting one "linked" program would require the deletion of all the linked programs, but I think it would add another level of customization to the upgrading of towers.

TL;DR,
Fantastic game, and I hope you plan on more eventually.

No extra reawrd?

Great game, I love the storyline and I especially like the unique upgrade system. But one thing bugs me- even after saving all 250 data cores, there's no extra reward? I personally think I nice touch would be adding a sandbox mode after getting all cores- The upgrade system in this game is too fun to not play around with.

CoreSector responds:

That's a good point. I never really thought of anything for recovering all the data cores. Totally my bad. I'm not sure how I would do a sandbox mode but perhaps I can think of something.
