Under rating threshold (show) Liked the game, found one level very hard and some upgrades unnecessary but really enjoyed playing the game and thought the ideas and gameplay were fantastic. Not sure what the point of getting 10/10 data was in the game, maybe could of gave a bonus for that such as extra memory at the start of levels.

Under rating threshold (show) Defence games that I don't start to loathe two or three levels in are rare. This is one of them. I like the emphasis on strategy over spamming towers and upgrades; good difficulty progression.

Under rating threshold (show) Just so everyone knows "on hit" effects (splash, poison, slow, etc) only happen on the last "bounce" if you have the chain upgrade... I was trying to chain slows, poisons and splashes... And learned the hard way that it was useless.

Under rating threshold (show) Brilliant game. One little mechanic I was disappointed not to find was the ability for towers to share upgrades. As another comment mentions, most towers end up functioning more or less the same. If they could share upgrades, any boringness that comes from that slight weakness would be offset by the funness of organizing towers to maximize space, minimize cost, and jointly take advantage of strategically placed upgrades.

Under rating threshold (show) this reminds me a lot of the movie "Hackers" I wonder if that was the inspiration? Great game, great concept! Very Pretty.

Under rating threshold (show) EARLY GAME PROTIPS: Yes, you can wait for the lights to change. / Memory Leak x2 + Chain/Splash x1 on an Infector tower is awesome DoT. / Command Shell + Splash + Slow at the start works well. / Having trouble? Try switching 'easy mode' on (the green shield in the corner). / Compressor towers home in on targets. Use Splash and Slow or Leak on them for great effect. / Avatars aren't actually that hard; just use Damage over Time to kill them. / There are very few obstacles a Slow/Splash Command Shell and a Leak/Leak/Chain (or Splash, if you can afford it) Infector can't conquer.

Under rating threshold (show) Easily one of the best Storyline - Tower Defense games out!!!! I am really hoping for a sequel! I am pretty damn sure for the 2nd one, that the Data Cores should be used to upgrade towers, because let's face it, the earlier towers are pretty damn weak.

Developer response from CoreSector

There is actually a sequel out on Kongregate, and you can upgrade the towers in it. :)

Under rating threshold (show) We all know TDs are the bomb, and this is no exception. well, it is exceptionally good even for it's genre. Well thought out, actual story line (could have done with even a tad more dialogue perhaps), very balanced in terms of money and difficulty (which is actually so much more difficult to achieve than it seems), as well as sick graphics that aren't overbearing. One quiff, however - I feel as though a lot of the variety of the actual towers is lost because one can more or less emulate most any of them with the upgrades, and you just end up with something along the lines of three multi-shot splash towers that do a lot of damage, regardless of what you build in the first place. Maybe each tower has an original ability that can't be replicated with upgrades? Or even like certain types of towers work especially well with different colours of upgrades? A lot to do, i know. but otherwise, fantastic game! 5/5! wow, long post :]

Under rating threshold (show) Honestly i never finished a gemcraft game. But i finished this because it was fun and the story was interesting. i only ever give 1/5 3/5 or 5/5. This one gets 5/5 for sure.

Under rating threshold (show) Good TD! I like the twist on being able to move towers around during the waves which is not really common and adds to the ambience. It was already said but the other great twist is of course the attributes rather than the upgrade. Oh and the story line is cool.

Under rating threshold (show) Very excellent game. Great balance, and an interesting variety of strategies. The animation was smooth and even when a lot was going on it performed well. Only one suggestion. I used the 'a' button (to accelerate the game) a lot, and the 'garbage collector' (using shift to collect multiple squares) a lot. However, when holding shift, the 'a' button doesn't work. It's a minor thing, and the only glitch that I encountered.

Under rating threshold (show) 50 datacore one should be an "easy" badge, then they should make the Hard one medium and add a third "Hard" badge for saving all cores

Under rating threshold (show) For everyone that quit after getting the badge: When saving all data cores, you get (3) extra levels where you play as the attacker. Kind of fun! Great game, although I think when replaying all the levels to get data cores, it gets kind of easy once you figured out how good scripts actually are. Some tweaking to the scripts is in order I think. Apart from that great game, 4/5!

Under rating threshold (show) First of all, this is a great game, I give you that! Pure 5/5. It has been said before here that now days its very rare to see something original in TD genre. The design of levels was intriguing, especially the one with additional closed loop with healers, really had to meditate there for a second! Balance issue (and spoiler alert, read no further if you haven't yet played!): sentries SHOULD be nerfed, since battery, link, fork combination is waaay too imbalanced, I played all the +20 levels on single try with it. Even the end boss is annihilated with ease using these burst damagers. second balance issue (and again spoiler alert...) the monster mode! it took less than 5min to play trough the whole campaign! just spam all lanes in every mission with the ones that limit damage to max of 2, its one-hit-wonder on every mission. but yes: this is as good as gems last year.

Under rating threshold (show) @galentknight: I am not completely sure I understand what you are saying. But the upgrading system in this game is different from other tower defenses. You add the upgrades that you want to any tower that you want. It allows for you to create the tower that you want.

Under rating threshold (show) Fantastic game - 5 stars from me. My only suggestion would be to cycle to possible add-on colors from a random starting point through a pre-defined list so you are guaranteed to see the one you want wihtout having to wait through the ones you don't want repeating themselves over and over.

Under rating threshold (show) one of the only td games i've played that feels more like a puzzle which places it above other TDs in which you may have flexibility but the end result is the same regardless of how you decide to do it. in this game, strategic placement of the towers and how you use them is so key to success, but it's not completely rigid. a good balance of flexible vs. needing to be adept with your resources. very very well done.

Under rating threshold (show) I see comments about selling/moving towers during a level. I find the recovery lag and the recharge timer too long to risk it. Only on the two-path level, the last level and one other did I dare even try it. My timid solution was to come back to hard levels after I'd upgraded enough. So the game IS very well balanced. :D

CoreSector

Oct. 27, 2010

Under rating threshold (show) I actually had a lot of suggestions to make upgrades share between towers. The problem with doing that is it encourages clumping up all your towers in one spot. It also leads to some extremely overpowered towers that then need new powerful enemies, as well as making it more difficult to balance.
