A few weeks ago I was eating cereal for breakfast when out of nowhere I was blind sided with an idea for a game. I knew it had to be simple, it had to have a lot of action, a base you can build, and explosions- LOTS of explosions. I knew what I had to do, so I dropped what I was doing, kissed my wife and 8 month old son good-bye, and set off to make just that. This is that game. This is Star Forge.

This is one of my favorite games we've made at Hero (that's actually saying a lot), and I hope you enjoy it too! Once you beat the standard game we also threw in some survival modes to give you room for bragging to friends.

May the Forge be with you.

Controls:

Defend the Forge! Use the Forge button and your mouse to cycle through components, place towers, upgrade them, and hold off the enemy. Pause and other settings can be changed while in the game in the bottom right corner. Pause the game to view menu options.

AWESOME idea, boring game

Dudes, your idea is pretty damn awesome! Your game reminded me of the old strategy pc game called Outlive. Really cool. However, it needs new features (maybe units, mazes, upgradables). As the other guys said in the reviews, it gets boring really fast.

However, I am pretty sute that once you add some new things here and keep the action cool and surprising, this has a great potential :D

I give it a 7/10, since you guys already did the hardest part: having a great idea. Now it's just some effort on developing it ;)

good idea but......

it seems almost impossible to keep up once the ranged guys start attacking. got boring and overall executed poorly.

Very good concept but poorly executed!

While i enjoyed playing this game for the second time (i failed the first time because i had no idea what to do) i got all the way up to the last level on normal. I died on the last level which was frustrating enough but the "replay level" cheered me up again only to leave me in the last level with a starforge that cannot produce anything else than tower. Apperently your score determines what kind of modules your forge can produce and that's the whole issue. Instead of using the score to unlock modules, use a kill counter that does not reset after you die. Until then it's completely useless to replay the level as you will have to start from the begining anyway.
Another thing that annoyed me were the tower's projectiles. They just fly through any other enemy without hitting them when the first enemy they were shot at dies.
