Solid tower defense! A+

A solid tower defense game incorporating an immersive story line.

Very simple to pick up & play. Build towers, make gems, combine gems, use gems as missiles to throw at the enemy, lay traps, gem traps. Storylined. 10/10 for a well thought out, well constructed game.

Love the inclusion of skills & in game achievements.

The only problems i have with your game..

- Is the insane difficulty curve

- few strategies can work to beat levels (trial-and-error gameplay)
--- The fact that a simple mistake will gimp an attempt at beating a map and force a restart is bad imho, but there is hardly any way to avoid it.

- that the game is only fun much, much later on when you have enough XP to actually have some tactical flexibility with your skills. So the early games are long, boring and hard.

- Gem distribution hardly seems fair/or really random in maps.. some types seem to be rarer on purpose.. or maybe im just that unlucky.

Otherwise, the interface works VERY well, its a solid system you got at work here. SHortcuts everywhere when need them, the game is clearly explained, everything is readable and all information is available at a glance.
And of course, the graphics are pretty.

Strategy guide gives good tips, but they are mostly usefull for higher level gameplay.. not much help for early ones.

at first i felt the concept was awesome....
but later on what i really hate is that the towers tend to target 1 enemy and what really pisses me off is that 1 fire is enough to kill the target but the towers still fires them even if its already dead leaving the other enemies untouched which makes their fire useless...

Not bad

I've played the light version of the original of this game on my Android phone as Crystal Defense. It's fun and easy to get a hang of while still being pretty challenging.
