Many many enemies that don't die when you shoot them, rush immediately to the bottom of the screen, and each one loses a life for you, so the game ends immediately after you begin. Enemy missiles are impossible to see through your own fire.
I ran out of food toward the end of the game, so the defenders went away. I had no ability to build farms to replace water towers. Why even have "level 1" buildings? it makes no sense to have any other than the "free" one you need to start the game.
Intro plays, then it fails. The upper left quadrant shows a tan circle "cave", a green circle "-est", title, FX, and Quality L M H. This quadrant appears to have a repeating black diagonal wipe from the upper right of that quadrant to the lower left of that quadrant. Nothing is responding.
Child "soldiers" I constantly have to feed? Who's the king's big, brave soldier? You are! You are! C'mon now, open your mouth for the flaming arrow of porridge! You know what makes a fun game? Childcare.
Very latest flash, IE 11.09600.16518, Win7 64-bit, http://www.kongregate.com/games/IIBlocks/install-d, I'm logged in. The game says "Loading", but the thin red line never moves from right to left toward the blue box.
The game does not need any power-downs, since the paddle is so small to begin with. Plus the power-downs are too similar to the power-ups to distinguish between them. If you're gonna have any power-downs at all, since the paddle is so small, then the power-ups should be permanent. And they fall at the same rate as the ball most of the time, so your opportunity to catch them is small.
