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.

I hate tower defense games!

I absolutely hate them. And yet, I can't stop playing this. It's awesome. You've accomplished quite a feat: making a unique, fun to play TD game with an interesting story and a totally immersive environment . Bravo!

Best TD game on Newgrounds

TD games are my favorites, but this game changes the rules of this type of games as the enemies don't just run to my base (data cores) and just kill themselves. GREAT CHANGES COME WITH GREAT GAMES. 10/10. No doubts.

Seriously, i spent 2 hours on it...then i just said screw it. I would've given you 10/10. Can you please tell me why it is so difficult? Except for that, great game.

CoreSector responds:

Level 5 is one of the first hard levels. They key to beating it is to place towers after the two paths merge together. The best place to place towers is just above and a little to the left of the data cores.

Also, bugs are weak against the Infector tower and memory leak upgrade.

Absolutely Great!

I can tell you, I was thinking high of this game only because of that loading screen.
The gameplay is very good, and, like alphasquishy said, not having to mass produce the most powerful tower is something that appeals to me in a tower defense game.
Graphics are great and match the setting very well, and the story inserted into this type of game make it one of the best I've played in a while!
Overall, 5/5, 10/10!
