This is a really fun demo, and it should be made into a full game as soon as possible. Essentially, it's a tower defense game on steroids, with graphics right out of games like the Portal series (as one reviewer mentioned), all of which you can kind of see from the screenshots. While it takes some getting used to at first, it'll have you scrambling to marshal your defenses in very short order, trying to figure out how to survive the round. The gameplay itself isn't really taught to you, other than via some helpful diagrams in the background, but it doesn't have to be. The learning curve is very small and what to do is extremely intuitive, for the most part. The only real challenge is in how exactly to do what you know must be done, and that does quickly become a true challenge indeed. The only real downside that I've found is that it is very addicting.

I hate Tower defense games. But this is different. If you're like me and hate all the TDs out there, you'll still enjoy toying around with the bits and pieces the level throws at you. The stacks could be a little more rigid, though…

It's quite an interesting concept. Basically it's a tower defense game, but you don't just build towers and leave or upgrade them like normal tower defense's. You physically build your towers by dragging different block parts and building different types of towers, so there's a lot of manual work, but it makes a lot of sense! It's a very cool game, and I like the style. Back end graphics could be improved (like resolutions settings and anti-aliasing), but it's free and definitly worth a shot!

It does, however, lack the addictiveness of other tower defense games when your towers aren't being destroyed and waves keep on coming in in large hoards. Neat concept, but it could be a bit better... but it's just a game concept! Give it a shot!
