About the Game

The Devil has converted a tenement building into monsters-only housing in Unholy Heights, a mashup of Tower Defense and Apartment Management Simulation. Sucker monsters into moving into your building, charge them rent and keep them happy by buying them furniture.

Unfortunately, heroes have caught wind of the Devil's plan, and will stop at nothing to wipe him out. Knock on residents' doors to call them to battle, trap heroes in devious pincer formations, and command your troops to victory. Monsters get jobs, fall in love, have children, and even skip out on their rent. Keep them happy or you might not have anyone to fight for you when heroes come knocking.

Being a landlord is a difficult job, but it can't be harder than running Hell...right?

Key Features

  • Every monster is different. Some are lazy. Some are strong. Some are perverts.
  • Use an intuitive mouse-based control scheme to command your troops into battle.
  • Encounter more than 20 different monster species, and take their money.
  • Build a reputation with different monster families based on your performance and play style.
  • Take on quests at your pace to unlock new monsters and furniture.
  • Build a stronger army as residents have children far stronger than themselves.
  • Get monsters in the mood for love with inappropriately shaped erotic cakes.
  • Look on in horror as lovingly hand-drawn monsters and humans horribly slaughter each other over money.
  • Monster occupations, hobbies and desires are all procedurally generated to keep you on your toes.

Simple and fun; Unholy Heights puts a new twist on the Tower Defense genre. Play as an apartment manager (The Devil) and experience what's it like to manage an apartment complex full of monsters.

I had a lot of fun building up my apartment. As my tenement grew, more monsters moved in, each with different stats, jobs, likes, and dislikes. I had to keep my tenants happy by fulfilling their special needs and buying them furniture. In return, they defend the apartment from invading adventurers and heroes.

Everything in this game has character; from the funny text descriptions of monsters and furniture to the cutesy 2D art design. Tenants will go about their day, some will go to work, others will hang around in their apartment; some monsters don't get along with others. I found myself chuckling often to the various activities of my tenants. Also, the soundtrack is super catchy and light-hearted, which fits the game perfectly.

There's something satisfying about watching your tenants grow; you might feel a peculiar attachment. They can get job promotions, fall in love, and eventually make babies! There's nothing like unleashing a family of Cheepies on an unsuspecting hero.

Unholy Heights is a very casual game. Fun and enjoyable, easily worth the price of purchase. It definitely merits our attention.

A review for disabled gamers:


Options are in game are pretty scarce. The game starts in windowed mode and has borderless edges. There is an option for Fullscreen. There’s no Subtitles or Colorblind Mode in the options. There’s also no voice acting so subtitles are unneeded. Colorblind mode would help as some quests are color coded according to tutorial.

Game play is very.point and click and I really couldn’t make it playable with onscreen keyboard. With a standard keyboard it IS playable using the hotkeys above! No keyboard is necessary however for mouse only gamers. You can speed up gameplay during the long slow periods and have the game automatically slow back down when events occur. The game can be paused or saved at anytime so fatigue shouldn’t be a concern.

If you can play point & click games and have always wanted to be Satan running an apartment, this game is for you. The tenants themselves are so adorable it’s worth checking out.

I'm shocked to see how addictive this little game is considering it's price tag. Sure it has a few flaws, but the fact that I spent 8 hours of play time in 1 sitting kind of says a lot about how good this game is. It's regular price is only $4 and it goes on sale for like half that on occasion.

Will be continuing to play this game until I finish the entire campaign which I can only assume I'm only half way there going by the stuff I haven't unlocked in-game yet.

The difficulty curve seems to be well balanced in a way that it's constant and kind of time oriented (meaning the less patient you are, the more difficult it'll be). The game seems to be very stable, no crashes or even a hint of a glitch anywhere yet. The game is widescreen only and at low resolution, though it looks fine for what it is and it plays fine on my 4:3 monitor too.

I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for an enjoyable time consuming game.

Unholy Heights is like a proposal for a game: a combination of scaled-down elements from Dungeon Keeper (RTS) and Sim Tower (Management Sim). The entirety of it is short, combat is simple, and you'll be managing a smaller amount of units (48 at most) and always in the same area, but this game gives the enjoyment of building up an unconquerable core of trusted tenant-minions for a very reasonable price, more so during steam sales.

You are the landlord of an apartment of minions, and must manage their happiness to bolster their effectiveness against hordes of incoming adventurers. You start off small with one floor of four apartments. Each can have a single tenant who can eventually become part of a family of three, and as the game progresses, you can have a maximum of four floors with 48 tenants in your care and functioning as your defense. And if you want these tenants to be good at defending you, you have to keep them happy with appropriate furniture and compatible neighbours.

The RTS elements come into play when looting adventuring march straight for your landlord's office. To safeguard your money, you can call out your tenants who'll then head straight for the closest enemy and fight until A: he dies; B: it dies; or C: you tell it to retreat. You can apply advanced tactics with positioning (call out tenants at the right time to attack fragile supporting enemies) and attrition tactics (summon and recall tenants to wear down larger enemies). But ultimately, combat boils down to having a meaty tenant as a tank and throwing as many ranged and long-ranged tenants behind him to supply additional damage.

However, this feels more like an experiment than a game: to test if the developer could make a game like this, and to test if a game like this can be enjoyed. Parts of the game are ambiguous (how happy will this furniture make this monster? how important is breeding in making stronger tenants?). Also, your tenants' movements (especially when they leave the building for work or play) are uncontrollable beyond calling them out of their apartments during invasions. As such, you may find frustration in unpredictably becoming shorthanded.

In the end, I still enjoyed Unholy Heights, though much more as a Sim than a RTS. The appeal in this game is building up your apartment army like a deck of cards, trying to keep your tenants alive and happy so your building becomes more attractive to stronger kinds of tenants. The payoff comes when you have built up a full army so strong that no invading hero can ever best you, and you watch on in satisfaction when the world cedes control to your unstoppable forces.

If you want an affordable low-PC-requirements game to while away a few hours offline or on a long trip, and have a taste for simulation games with a monster-management twist, then I heartily recommend Unholy Heights as a delightful demonic diversion.

Addendum: The game boasts a lot of mildly amusing flavor text (sometimes due to the random generation) as well: Big hairy yeti dominatrixes, werewolf chefs becoming culinary geniuses, and of course, many behind-closed-doors instances of your tenants "making" more tenants.
