Tower defence with a twist. Build up your elevators and man the hallways as you protect your only corridor from the creeps. Switch elevators as you need more power, user your man to defend from extra large groups. Make sure to read the instructions as they appear!

Quite new.

No one has ever done an elevator defense before, y'know, so this is pretty cool. Controls on the other hand? ...Not really. I'm not up to the whole "drag the elevator with the mouse" thing. I can't shoot for awhile after landing a floor, so it kinda sucks.

A very innovative take on the defense genre

I liked many aspects of this game especially the graphics and I loved how you reinvented the defense genre. The graphics were simple but had a great style to it.
The music fit well with the intense action. And the coding engine was quite impressive. Once again jmtb02 you have come up with a very original new kind of game which shows your limitless potential of innovation.

good game, and cool concept. needs some work tho.
i rly liked the concept and game play, but i think haveing 2 move ur elevators 2 get 2 different floors was annyoing bc u wud hav 2 screw up ur gun set up. i think u shud b able to but an upgrade or somthing for stairs or a little elevator 2 move ur person if a floor needs more help.
also there shud b an endless mode, i feel it was too short when i finished it

too easy?!

Well, great game! no doubt!
But in my opinion it's too easy to survive those 15 days... the only thing i did was upgrating the right weapons just in time and bought a new elevator as soon as it was available.... during the "fight" there was no need for me to do anything at anytime ... i shut the window down and did something else ..... ;-)

Hmm... interesting concept.. but..

The controls are my issue. I can't just drag my elevator down while shooting at the same time, because I need to click to shoot. But then I need to drag the elevator down to get around. I like the idea, but it kinda needs a little polish. I don't understand how they hurt the elevator though. Are they cutting the cables when you are on another floor? They just seem to bang on the door.
