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.

Amazing,

I have never seen a defense game like this, and I'm a tower defense junkie. The game is all around great, great upgrades for the towers. great potential for strategy, great mobs just... Great. If you love Tower Defense games you will go nuts for this game.

Nice TD game.

Really addictive.

If I can suggest what to fix:
1. There are some ways to make challenging levels easier and not so interesting to save all data cores, like run couple levels forward with moderate result, get new tech and return back for "excellent result".

2. Sentry cannons are too powerful when splash, fork and linker are applied to them. And even more powerful if there are 3-4 such cannons stay together.
Probably it could be fixed with making programs immune to stun for 1 second or even more, disallow use of fork and linker together with Sentry also could work.
Lvl 25 becomes peace of cake with pack of Sentries. As Axon spawns SU all the time Sentries fire a BUNCH of splashing rounds. Actually my Axon died before he reached cores even without using scripts.

3. Slicer cannons are too powerful when 2xfork, linker and slow applied. Especially when map has long and straight paths.
Also sometimes one Slicer with such set of upgrades at the center of a map is enough to control all activity.

CoreSector responds:

Yeah, the Sentry is definitely too powerful with it's stunlock capability. However, I don't really want to nerf it at this point as it might require some significant rebalancing. People were already complaining about the game difficulty without me nerfing overpowered towers (although there is an easy mode now).

The slicer is actually a really powerful tower that few people realize, but good placement effects this tower more than any other. It might need a little nerfing, but I like having a tower that's really good in certain locations and below average in others.

Assuming I do make a sequel, I'll certainly have to address the balance issues better though.

Unbeatable? Nope.

You guys do know that there's a walkthrough before each level right? If your getting so stuck to the point that you can't even beat a level then use it.

Love the game it's challenging but enjoyable at the same time, good job. :)
