You're the king of the skeletons!

What better defense than your mighty bones? Settle bone turrets, bone walls and bone bombs; against the armies of the human king.

This game is pretty damn good. I love how it plays out and I thought I was gonna run out of bones until oh, I get bones from kills lol

good fun until you start bombing everything to death.

This game is as addicting as challenging games get.
1 single complaint: the interface boxes are in the way. I about rage quit but figured I'd make a profile just so I could ask this-
A- once you've selected an item, make the Key/Option box "click-throughable"
B- please move the upgrade text bar to the side or something. it is somehow always in the way when I need an upgrade most.
I can't be the only one experiencing this. I think most of us got the gist after round 5 anyway

This game is difficult, fun, and addicting. I wish there was a faster way to place turrets etc., but other than that, its great!
