Explore cyberspace and battle rogue AIs in your mission to take back control of the internet. Place towers and add upgrades to programs. Use scripts to directly attack enemies and interact with the map. Gain new programs, upgrades, and scripts as you explore 25 unique levels.

Some general hints:
-If there's multiple entrances, place towers after the paths merge together.
-Usually the best place to put towers is in spots where they hit different parts of the path that are far away from each other. Hitting one long stretch of path can be worse then hitting two small far away sections of the path.
-Watch what enemies are listed for each level and plan your towers and upgrades based on that.
-Scripts only temporarily use memory. You never lose memory using them.
-Recycling towers gives you 100% of your memory back.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A really fun game.

Great game, well-polished. Nice amount of tactical thinking involved, and the progression for towers/upgrades/difficulty was smooth and comfortable.

Minor considerations: story was a bit weak, and waiting for the towers to show the desired upgrade slot colors can take a long time.

Fun Game

Awesome game. To be a pedant, I'm an AI developer, and it's "artificial" intelligence - if a human's doing it, it's not artificial. Great use of towers, nice music, and awesome gameplay.

The funny thing is I used to use the term "human construct" instead. But it was too confusing to people. And I kinda have to wonder, if you digitize a human, should they be considered artificial at that point or are they still human. Or is AI consideration based on how the Intelligence arose in the first place?

So I'm still not sure what the best thing is to call them.

There are a lot of not-that-great generic tower defense games out there, but you took this old idea and made it new. The gameplay is addicting. The music is alright. The storyline is really engaging. I really hope to see a sequel.

Great game!

I love the background design. I'd have it as wallpaper on my computer if I could. :)
