I have heard your cries of pain! In version 1.04 all levels will be unlocked after the tutorial! If you already have been progressing through the game, just play the tutorial again via the options menu and it should unlock all levels. Thanks for the feed back and votes!!!

Hello Newgroundians! AD is my first Indy tittle that I slaved over in the dead of night for longer than was probably healthy. Play it. Have fun with it. I had a lot of fun making it :)

Its shooter meets tower defense meets a bit of rpg. Its got a little something for everyone.

Good game, unique and easy to learn. I guess this goes without saying, but it gets real redundant..

This game was entertaining and beautiful, so bravo on that. The only thing that I found really frustrating through my playthrough was that the Giga Volt is extremely unreliable. I can tell that it is a powerful weapon, especially with the attention you've given it in the upgrades shop, but I can't for the life of me figure out what its "radius" is, or if it needs to warm up for each shot. Sometimes it blows enemies away when they're halfway across the screen, other times it will allow an enemy to run straight through it.

Perhaps more detailed spell information like damage range and manacost would be a healthy addition to the game (for example: I know Last Rights deals more damage to undead, but does it deal the same amount as the Arcane Shot to normal enemies? And what is the Mana Cost difference between the two?)

Hey thanks for the feed back. I'm glad you liked the game. I'm actually planning a more core version of the game as a sequal. Glad to know there are guys out there that want to get into the nitty gritty of the stuff.

The way giga volt works is it has a hitting area of about 1/5th of the screen up and down and can hit anything from the rows beside it as well as the row it's on. The issue is, when it goes off it can initially only hit one enemy within that area. There are upgrades that allow for additional simultaneous strikes.

Last Rights does deal a tad less to any non-undead enemies. But bonus to any undead. Which include skeletons and zombies.

Great feedback man :) Thanks!

Really good game. Completely original and sufficiently challenging. This is a huge thumbs up for me.

Love this game, nice work with the unique lifescoring system! Stuff seems a bit expensive in the shop but thats probably just me. Very well done mixing RPG and tower defense.
