Black Sky: Tower Defense

Author Comments

Black sky: Tower defense is my second game. I created it as a kind of tip-of-the-hat to the more old school tower defense games that were hard. And the focus was on beating the map by creating a strategy that allowed you to do so. Not just spamming towers with no real thought to it.

The first map is pretty easy, and they start to get harder from there and will require a strategy to complete.

It's kind of cool, sure looks like you put a lot of thought into this, and like that guy said, it's not about spamming turrets, good job.

Excellent Game

I love the different level designs. I especially like how spamming towers is NOT rewarded, you have to upgrade smartly to progress.

Some complaints: You can pause indefinitely, and while pausing the bonuses can still recharge. Why even bother with a pause if it lets you cheat and take each wave one at a time, hmm?

The graphics were a bit simplistic too. Not seeing a fisual of machine gun bullets hitting the enemy kinda made it lose a little spark or something.

Finally, it took me about 30 seconds to figure out where I could place a turret, and the walkways for the enemies were confusing as hell. It was all one big mash of color xD

Still, 8/10, good job!
