Under rating threshold (show) Now this is how you make a 3834ing flashgame. No gold, no energy, no special events that require gold. This is epic. This made me want to buy the full game 10x more than a stupid game with gold/energy criteria. You guys get my full praises 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Despite my utter lack of desire to actually spend real money on games, I ended up buying this one. I don't really regret it, either. When it boils down to it, some games are just worth the money, and supporting the developers of these games gives you warm squishy feelings.

Under rating threshold (show) The Gold version includes a higher difficulty level for those users, such as myself, who already played through the game once. Add in extra quests, story and dialogue, Hermits looking for special skulls, a wider variety of weapons and whatever else they've put in past Act II, and it is well worth playing through a second time.

Under rating threshold (show) Ya know, I played this demo game a long time ago and didn't think much of it, but after replaying just a few levels I don't know how I overlooked such a gem. Probably gonna preorder the new one :) Consider it a huge thumbs up from someone who NEVER spends money on games!

Under rating threshold (show) Bought this game awhile ago, and don't regret a thing. I would recommend it to any fan of the TD genre. Replaying levels with new and stronger characters is strangely satisfying. I named most of the defenders, other than the main ones, after friends and fictional characters, so their talent tree's ended up taking on their personalities. Fun stuff.

Well, that's certainly a compliment we're happy to take. We had to decide on a distribution model, and at the end of the day the long demo model just made more sense for us. But we're glad to hear you enjoyed it!

Under rating threshold (show) This is a fantastic game. I bought the full version on Steam and the game is GREAT on the full version. I am currently on the New Game+, having got 3 gold stars on every level as well as all the modes in standard. This game is highly amusing for me, and both its story and the humor put in it make this a game highly worth playing. The full version is $15, but it is one of the best $15 I have ever spent. I commend you highly on making such an immersive game. I am a fan of TD games myself, which is why I enjoyed it. For any TD fan I feel this should be one of those must-play games. It's one of those games which, although at first glance looks like a standard TD game, once played, pulls you in to Azra's world and keeps you interested with the RPG style customization and humor, which I feel is lacking in a lot of games on Kongregate as well as Steam. Kudos to you, my friend, for making such an addictive game!

Under rating threshold (show) What an impressive 'demo'! More than enough play time to give you a great love for the game, and get you addicted. So much that I broke down and made my first purchase of Kreds for the remainder of the game! I just HAVE to know what is so special about my character that is wanted so bad! Great game play! Can play different ways. Can go for all stars or see how high you can go. Good job in creating this game.

Under rating threshold (show) with the full version, you guys would stand a decent shot of getting the monthly #1 prize. between the 1.5K prize, tips and having a bit of premium content in the game, i think you guys would earn at least as much, and without rubbing people the wrong way. people here don't really like the word "demo'. all that being said, pretty decent TD all in all, if the full version ends up on kong sometime i'll be sure to leave something in the tip jar xD

Developer response from LevelUpLabs

I realize it's a demo, as in there's more content available, but the "demo" is actually longer than our last full game, CellCraft. In any case, it's great to hear all of the support from everyone, and hopefully we haven't rubbed too many people the wrong way. :)

(1529)

Developer response from LevelUpLabs

We'll agree it's less awesome than the full game (which is definitely awesome), but we tried to make the demo long enough to stand against many other Flash games out there on its own. It's no Gemcraft: Labyrinth in length, but it should provide an hour or two of gameplay if you're not speed-running. :)

Under rating threshold (show) Are there going to be any updates to the game to add new content? I love the concept, the story, and the characters. For people who have already beaten the main story I think you will agree that some updates would be awesome because after you beat the end there is only one endless mode and the options of redoing lvls on higher diffs. If you add some occasional updates you might even attract new buyers by a constant supply of new content. I'm just putting it out there.

Under rating threshold (show) Is it possible to purchase and download the game, rather than getting it mailed with the CD and all? I'm not to keen on paying extra for shipping and customs, but I'd gladly pay a bit more for a direct download of the game.

+ - !

(26)

Developer response from LevelUpLabs

Actually, we don't mail the game at all. The order form used to ask for your address up front, but we were able to get our payment provider to stop doing that because it was confusing and unneeded. Now it only asks for address if it needs to verify a credit card. If you buy from our site, we'll email you download links. If you buy on Kongregate the game is unlocked and playable in the browser.

Under rating threshold (show) This is one of the most incredibly games I've ever seen. The plot is detailed with recognizable characters and the graphics are beautiful. The concept itself is really creative and all of it is well-executed. I would absolutely love to see more of this and I really wish that I had the means to pay for the rest of the game. I give this a 5/5 and would definitely say it's the best game I've played for a long time.

Under rating threshold (show) I snagged this for 50 kreds a while back. However, I feel they should have released this as a "full game", then included the rest of the game as an expansion. I have a feeling that it'd have gotten a much more positive vibe had it been done that way. However, regardless of that, it's still a wonderful game.

The "Import" button currently only shows up in the full version. However, save games should automatically carry over from the regular demo to the extended demo and full version. Export/import should only be necessary as a backup safety method, or for sharing save files with your friends :)

Under rating threshold (show) This game was incredible! I loved the well-thought storyline and the originality of the characters. The demo itself is better than many TD full games and for that I rated it 5/5 and favorited. Also, it might be the only game that really made me think about buying the full version. Which (considering the miserly me) is pretty awesome.

Under rating threshold (show) As a general rule, I cannot abide tower defence games. And I was never sure why either, since they have all the strategic elements that I look for in a game. This game changed that dramatically. That feeling of customisation that the RPG elements provide is exactly what tower defence games lack for me. It's odd going from hating a genre to checking out the price of the full version within a couple of hours. I hope to see more developers follow the example set here in the future.

Under rating threshold (show) Man, these kids are really upset about your business model. You aren't being remotely sneaky about the fact that this is a demo, there's plenty of content compared to many free games on here, and this was the standard business model in the 90s (and hardly that rare today). Anyway, I hate the nickel-and-dime business model of most games with "premium content", so I was really happy to buy your game as an (extremely reasonable) one-time payment. My only complaint was that I was planning to do some actual work today...
