It would help to have a tutorial. I was a bit confused. The art is great! Not much innovation on the gameplay. The whole room theme is a bit missing.

New download link works :) It's pretty good, a lot of multitasking and high production standards.

Good one, a little bit slow to progress, but very addictive. I like variants of defense games.

Great concept! The controls aren't very intuitive, so I'd work on those a little bit more, but the gameplay's working very well and I love the graphics. Give this a solid setting and backstory and it'd be an excellent start to a game I'd definitely play!

Nice little game. Not really my cup of tea, but the gameplay was pretty solid (if a touch repetitive) and the art, music and general design all fit together very well.

Good job. :)

IT'S AWESOME!

I really like it, the pixel art and the background music. The gameplay is very nice with the tripple weapons that have its characteristics to defeat the ennemie , we should protect our room !

In terms of gameplay, it's really original and funny, but maybe you can go on to make more monster which has its weakness or resistences to match the different weapons, and it can also make various path of attacking of monsters to make it more strategic~~

Good job !

cool concept

Confusing at first, but I quickly figured it out. Felt a bit too slow-paced for my tastes, but it's a clever idea for a tower defense game.

Good concept ! I loved this system, and it's quite challenging. Went up to 12 waves (maybe I wasn't very strategic, just putting all the weapons on the nearest ennemy and upgrading the cannon speed only XD).

Good job ! :D

A very nice game. I like the idea of having three weapons and you must find out wich obne is best against wich enemy. Nice gamplay. The Update-System is very nice but a little to complicated to handle while fighting the waves... you should reduce the amount of clicks to upgrade your sentinel. A very good job. I had a bug so when i hit the retry button, there was no waves to start... had to restart the entire game :)

I really like the artstyle, I dont really see a room in there, but the artstyle looks awesome! The laser weapon is really satisfying.

Dec 20, 2016 @ 12:57pm

In game instructions for controls would be nice, art was nice and gameplay was fun. Would love to see this expanded.

Good polish on the game and was pretty fun to play. The game has some good difficulty to it and was more fun than expected of a tower defense game.

Bonus points for not using donation prompt on itch.io.

Thank goodness this isn't a compo entry, I was worried this was what I was up against... Regardless, amazing entry! Great polish and neat concept :)
