Pretty cool concept once you get the hang of it.

That's very literal tower defence :P

Cool concept, but man do I suck at it. Thumbs up from me!

Nice concept, but I found it REALLY hard because the droppers were rarely in the right place at the right time. I felt I was losing because the game created unwinnable situations rather than because I made mistakes. Perhaps a few seconds grace to build some defences at the start would give the player more of a chance.

Took a few attempts, but then just slipped into the zone...and almost fell into the trap of thinking "actually this is too easy...." until all my shields came tumbling down because I was just building outwards :-/ Nice work man!

Interesting concept ! It is indeed maybe too difficult. I couldn't get past 30 seconds... I must suck at this x)

Ah it is probably the sucky game designer, not you. :)

Nifty concept and interface. The 'Next' indicators make this feel like some sort of construction/destruction tetris game. Cool.

Cool take on the "Missile Command" type of game.

This was quite interesting (once I actually figured out how to control it)

You, sir, have a twisted frickin' mind! A simple three-button game has never had me sulking, let alone weeping in the corner of my bedroom in nothing but my underwear, muttering "Think of a happy place, think of a happy place" to myself while carelessly sifting fingers through my beard.

The mellow music betrays the insanity beneath.
