About This Game

Welcome to Unholy Heights, a mashup of Tower Defense and Apartment Management Simulation! The Devil has converted a tenement building into monsters-only housing, and has big plans for the future. 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. But don't be too soft: there's always prospective baddies looking to move in, so kick out the freeloaders when the time is right!

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

  • 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.

System Requirements

Let me tell you about Popan.

Popan was the first baby ever born in my apartments. She was a Cheepy so I didn't have high expectations. Popan was probably 3 days old when her parents died in an unfortunate ambush on my complex. I had a ton of other tenants, so I didn't see the harm in waiting for her to grow up. Somehow, she never became in debt. This ♥♥♥♥ing baby was paying the rent. She grew up to be a total badass. She would single-handedly wipe out entire waves of enemies without breaking a sweat.

Popan is obviously popular and well-known throughout the land, she easily finds herself a guy to shack up with. He's weak and dim-witted; a farmer named Peecone that watches tv 90% of the time that he's home. It doesn't slow Popan down though, she easily slays the first main quest adventurer all by herself while all the other tenants are at work. She returns immediately and has victory "pillow-talking" and immediately has the child they have been trying so hard to have. A girl named Chaan, that is impossibly strong as well. Popan and Chaan were ♥♥♥♥ing ruthless, the perfect mother-daughter duo. Then Peecone stops paying rent, or so I assume, as I thought the world of those two divas but not so highly of farmer Peecone. I keep lowering the rent hoping they'll stay, I evict Peecone hoping it will fix the problem. It helps! They are back in the green in no time and happily tending their garden and watching tv together. Then it all goes down hill again. Popan robs the cradle with her next man, the neighbor boy, Pyo, not much older than her daughter moves in. Things get tense. Chaan was the one that wanted the damn Love Balloon and yet her mother was the one to snatch up a mate. Chaan is unemployed but barely comes home. Popan and Pyo are having pillowtalk near constantly. Twice I found Chaan begrudgingly lifting weights while the two love birds pillowtalk all night, draining the life out of her having to deal with it.

Then tragedy struck. Being the only one home at the time of the ambush, Pyo the live-in boyfriend was struck down. Despite her envy, Chaan became increasingly more withdrawn, very rarely going out for fun or even job interviews. Popan also began getting increasingly more gloomy and soon they were once again behind on rent, once again because of a guy. In fear of losing my glorious lady warriors, I lowered the rent as much as I could stand but their grief had drained not only their livelihood, but also apparently their bank accounts because the two ♥♥♥♥♥es ran out on me in the middle of the night.

11/10 would collect rent from orphan babies again

Unholy Heights - Short Review
Unholy Heights is a quirky mixture of tower defense and apartment sim that I really enjoyed playing. The music fits in well with the art style of the game, both giving a calm and relaxing vibe, however it is anything but calm. If you haven't played a tower defense game before, Unholy Heights might be challenging for you, especially if you want to play a certain way (no deaths, no evictions, etc), but if you play tower defense games you should feel right at home. The game lasts around 5 hours or so, but if you want to see everything it'll take a bit longer; around 2-3 playthroughs to see all the different monsters and get 100%. If you're interested in this game and got $4 to spare ($2 during sales!), then you should definitely check this game out.

► Simplistic, yet fun gameplay
► Humorous descriptions for items and characters
► Cutsey graphics
► Music is calm and catchy
► Cheap price for the amount of time you'll get out of the game (5 hours or so)

► Options limited, and changing your resolution may glitch the game
► Requires grinding, a lot if you want to get certain achievements

Hit / Miss:
► Music might get repetative after playing for long periods of time for some people (repeats)
► Certain monsters don't like living with others, so it'll take at least 2 playthroughs to see all the different monsters

Personal Rating:
Avoid at all costs
Pick up during a sale

So the Devil quit his job as Lord Of All Evil to build an apartment building for monsters, and as its landlord you have to manage the tenants and get them to defend the building against overeager heroes. If that premise sounds Japanese as ♥♥♥♥ to you, then you're right on the money because the monsters are adorable, the heroes are Dragon Questy, and there are erotic cakes. And under all the weirdness and design quirks, there's a pretty good game.

Unholy Heights is a mash-up of management sim and tower defense that's way, way heavier on the management part. You start with four apartments that monsters can apply to live in, and you have full control over the rent and furnishings. That means you can fill it with all sorts of beds, appliances, plants, PCs, board games, exercise gear, and other junk. Your tenants will often request specific things like a desk to study on or smutty wallpaper to stare at, but you can (and should) also furnish empty apartments a specific way to attract certain monsters. From the outset only a handful will want to take a room in your building, but with a little work you can catch the eye of powerful demons, elementals, beasts, and elder beings.

Apartments start as single residences, but your tenants can meet and bring home a spouse, and have a child. You can also add second and third floors after completing certain quests, ultimately giving you 12 apartments of up to 3 monsters each. Monsters have jobs that they'll leave part of the day for (unless they work from home), hobbies they'll indulge, and all sorts of weird statuses throughout like "staring at the wall" and "having a wet dream". They can get sick, they can be evicted, they can lose their jobs and not make rent, and on and on and on. The depth of the sim component honestly approaches something like Tropico with how fleshed-out each resident is.

All of this contributes to the tower defense portion as well, but not always in good ways. Heroes will come to your building in an effort to get to the Devil's office on the roof and steal your money. This can happen randomly, but usually it's triggered by taking a quest. Quests have all sorts of justifications and reward you with money, new monsters, new furnishings, or the ability to expand the building, but they all play out roughly the same. Heroes appear from the right side of the screen and wind their way up towards the Devil's office. You can knock on the doors of your residents to get them out and fighting the good guys. Monsters can be melee, ranged, or magical, with different resistances and speeds to track. They also get bonuses from being content, favorable weather, and so on.

It's a smart and entertaining combination that's only held back by a few gripes. If the heroes reach your office, they steal a bunch of your money and you fail the quest. Quests can be several waves long, so failing on the boss can be pretty discouraging. Losing monsters in battle can be a pretty stiff setback, since you generally don't have time to replace them between waves. You also don't really know what you're getting into until you see the heroes in action, so it's really easy to screw yourself by unknowingly taking a quest you can't win yet.

The absolute worst, though, is getting attacked while your monsters are out. Remember how I said they have jobs and hobbies? Well, when they're out, they're out. And once you start a quest, you don't get to pick when the waves come. So if your key melee tank is waiting tables when the heroes show up, you're screwed. I had one building where every single monster worked the night shift, which made quests almost impossible to complete. I've learned to work around it, and now I have a group with several housewives and home-workers, but it's a big issue you have to look out for.

All that said, I've having a lot of fun with my kooky monsters. I don't even care for tower defense games that much, but the management side is engrossing and the combat doesn't get too in the way of my enjoyment. The learning curve is a little steeper than it should be thanks to some questionable design, but once you get past that it's an adorable little package.

Unholy Heights is a strange, strange little game. It seems to take itself fairly seriously, although there was obviously alot lost in translation when converting to English.

Myself, the white devil with the hitler 'stash, lured potential tenants with 'pervy' wallpaper, cigarette butts, and cheap rent, among other things. This is a tower defense game mixed with clan micromanagement. You run a block of apartments and the tenants are your 'towers'.

I will vote this a 'yes' but will curb-stomp it as well.

+There is a difficult learning curve (although good tutorials) that keeps you coming back for more like 'I gotta try to get that second layer!'
+Unintended humor through very bizarre descriptions of things
+Beware that there are lots of adult themes despite its kiddie cover - horse people mating, chickens having wet dreams, and demi-gods examining pelvises

-Menus are fairly horrible - the hotbar is pretty dumb - things could be much better optimized as far as mouse and keyboard setup
-Elevator music is generic
-Although the art all matches up, we are mixing demons with baby chicks and humans and demi-gods
-You have two screen resolution options - bad, and worse

Its cheap and we laughed at alot of it. Get it on sale if this looks like your kind of thang.
