Puzzle Defense

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A unique mixture of Puzzle & Tower Defense. Inspired by the popular 'Puzzle Quest', complete chains of 3, 4, or 5 runes, then use the mana to build towers to defend against the enemy hordes.

Good, but..

(4/5 | 9/10)

It's a nice game, however, it was very odd how a lot of things in the store were already purchased. Instead of having the already starting towers in there you could of had more tower/spell/mines or upgrades for those existing items.

I love the concept, but the game needs work

It's a great idea for a game, but the mechanics could use some ironning out
there's little need or want to place anything other than the dart gun, because none of the other ones do anything noticably different. also, the difficulty curve could be increased a bit; i found myself very comfortably fortified early on


Extremely Addictive


This mechanic has a lot of potential. The problem is that it is very distracting to do both at the same time.

If you can test various ways to streamline the interface to be more friendly to monitoring both activities this could be a near perfect game.

The graphics could use a little work too.

Too much win froze my screen

I actually really enjoyed this game. It's like playing two games in one.
You have really innovated on the defense and puzzle genre by skillfully combining the two and overall the game is very balanced although I wish there were more spells and a couple more tower selections ( I'm just knit-picking of course ).

To tell the truth I'm not really into defense game but when I saw the word puzzle in the title I gave it a shot and I didn't come out disappointed !
