Welcome to the Archerland. To play this game you need to know the following:

The game
The aim of the game is to build your town and do not let your castle to be conquered. Roll over on the castle to see its health line. When the health line is empty your town is conquered end the game is over.

1. Main menu
In the right menu on the top you can see your fortune - gold, wood and stones. You will need this resources to build buildings or buy weapons. Lower you can see your weapons (mangonels and cannons) and your army. You can see the pit and tower too. Build the tower to place an archer on it, make a pit to make enemies go slowly. If you have selected the item but you changed your mind, you can click on "cancel button" or press "Esc". In the bottom it is shown the day, week and month of your playing. Lower you can see what kind of enemies will attack you next day. Click "Next day" or press "Space" to start a new day. Click on the pause icon in right top corner or press "p" to pause the game. Click on "Speed" or press "s" to change the speed of the game.

2. Building menu
Click on the castle image on the right panel to go to the building menu. You can also click on your castle or press "c" to do the same action. Here you can build different buildings. Each building has its purpose. If the item shown in green you can click on it and read the description of the building, find out its cost and either build it or go back. You can build just one building in one day.

3. Weapons and army
You can click on the archer, mangonel or cannon that is already placed on ground to see the upgrade menu. In right corner you can see the information about item. Click "Upgrade" or press "u" to upgrade the item. If you click "Remove" or press "r" you will be able to place the item on the ground again, but all upgrades will be lost.

Good Luck!

Not bad.

I'm assuming most people just didn't have what it takes to actually -BEAT- the game. YES! You can beat it! You just need to get every building built. Sounds easy doesn't it? Trust me it's not once you get the Archers rolling in and around Month 2 you really need them, they make life possible considering the difficulty grows exponentially. But for a game of it's type I was fairly enthralled, until I beat it breaking it's spell X]. Anyhow, on to the main point of the review! Graphics were decent, however the quality -HAD- to be reduced when you got to a certain point because you have just too freakin' many things shooting at once. The sound was..Kinda irritating to be honest. The music got bland and bothersome quickly, the sound effects irritating about the 4 millionth time hearing the same archer shoot an arrow. The controls were a bit jerky when it came right down to it, I mean, the movement of the viewing portion just plain kinda sucked. Mostly because every single portion of the game you interact with was placed on the edge of the screen...Yeah..Stroke of genius that O.o. But I do have to say that the game play was surprisingly well balanced. And I would go so far as to say that perhaps that is closer to your true calling than out-right making games? But anyway, with every Archer a week coming in you had just enough money to make gains so you could eventually buy everything and WIN! So, I guess in the end everything worked out just fine, no problems. Totals: 4/5 - 9/10

Fine, even if a bit limited

You should fix a couple of glitches:
-somehow, while upgrading an archer, my money got to NaN and since then I had infinite cash. I had already nearly ended the game but I'm sure it is not meant.
-the last "tutorial window" (the one which tells you to click on "next day") never disappeared and stayed there the whole time.
Also you should make it impossible to place pits in the grass or upon previously existent pits.
Again, the tutorial windows looked displaced to me, always a slot below what they meant.
You could add a boss, a once in a while, or different levels of building (ie: Town->City->Region->State->Whatever) or an opposing town or something else to bring this from its actual tower defence look to a RTS one.

Yeah! TD!!

You're awesome, man. Eventhough tower defensa are SO common, I really like them much..

I'm looking forward for another game like this, okay?

Fun, but a little too easy.

On medium it was nearly impossible to lose.
Also, I ran afoul of the same gold = NaN glitch as others did.
Still, it was pretty fun.
