Good stuff

I managed to beat it, thanks for including me in your testing process. I think it turned out well, it ran well with all the bells and whistles and the bosses were pretty fun as well. Maybe one of the bosses could have been like a twin boss where rather than having to fight off the regular goons, it woulda been fun to have to deal with two beasts.. or maybe halfway through he splits or something. Might have added a suprise twist.

I was worried that id get to a point where id be stuck with the upgrades i made but it was a smart move to have you keep whatever points you accumulated even if you died through the level. It sort of prods you along wether you made bad choices or not during your upgrading.

Medals werent workin for me for some reason so nobody is gonna believe me when i said i beat it. hmph.

Excellent Work

Very addicting and very fun. I really enjoyed combining the different types of arrows and seeing how things would turn out. Nice difficulty curve and everything. I think you guys turned out a pretty solid defense game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very well done.

Definately a decent game. I loved the arrow combination idea(I used Homing and Explosive the entire game once I was able to buy both and fully upgraded them hehe worked perfectly). The music was suitable and didn't get too annoying considering how immersed you had to be to keep everything off ya. Keep up the good submissions. Once again, Very well done!
