Interesting... Pretty decent Geometry Wars style aesthetic, well done here.
The game crashes spectacularly on exit, but no problems in-game.
I don't know if there's too much focus on the mouse-pointer, and not enough in the simple joy of setting up and upgrading towers, though... but that's a decision you made at the design point.

Good luck,

Allan

Woah, any details about the crash? I've never heard a crash on exit reported before.

Thanks for your other comments. Yeah, there's some focus on the Path Cursor but that decreases in importance as you gain more Points (towers) and more cache to upgrade them with; but it still has some importance even later on, which makes it less strategic and more action-oriented compared to most TD games.

Happens upon quitting; I got to the main screen from exiting the game, then it hung, and finally tried to call microsoft to complain :)

Sure.. Personal preferences :) I like basking in the glory of my Immaculate Defence, without having to scurry like a rat to patch holes in the net. ;)

That's pretty weird, I'm not sure why it'd do that. One thing I was planning on doing was making quitting from the stage select menu bypass the title screen and just go directly out of the game, since there's nothing really to see on the title screen anyway besides start game and quit game, perhaps if I do that it'd fix the crash hopefully.

Just to say that the game is great and I recommend everyone to play it ;). It uses a mix of old genres to make a very unique experience. Rinku's ability to make a tower defense game have a great story, is impressive. Even towers here have some personality and that's quite something ;).

You already asked me that in a different thread, I think you're just posting it here to bump the thread. I'm not sure what you mean by comprehensive either.


You have a beautiful interface but it's very difficult to figure out what's going on the screen. All I see is a bunch of lights and bright lines and some icon. It's too busy even though it's pretty. (Haven't tried it yet since I'm at work)
