About This 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.

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows XP (SP3 or newer) / Vista (SP1 or newer) / 7
    • Processor: Pentium III 1.0GHz or faster
    • Memory: 1 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Shader Model 2.0 or better

This is not a genre I tend to enjoy... I'd say tower defence (which is not a perfect description of the game, but it is fairly close) is one of my least enjoyed genres. Unholy Heights is something special though.

Unholy Heights gets me far more invested in the morality of my actions than pretty much any other game. In a game like Fable which toutes its morality focused gameplay, I will just shrug off the ultimatums. "Will you let most of the kingdom die?!" Yeah; they were all carbon copies of each other anyway. "Will you let your beloved get killed by the evil guy?!" Yeah... her hair is kinda weird.

But this game...

I have some families that I accidently let the parents die, and now the child doesn't have enough money to pay the rent, but I feel so bad that I let her keep her room for free as a means of apologizing for her loss.
And another family which has been falling behind on rent, but I don't want to kick them out because they just had a kid.
And another family that keeps telling me to change the wallpaper back and forth and they're great at defending the place but I just can't stand their implied bickering, so I send them out as soon as there's an assault with the hopes that one of them will perish and I can finally either leave the room with smutty wall paper or plain wall paper...

The game has the potential to be a lot of fun but it fails to pay off. It is basically a tower defense type game. The problem is that your "towers" always seem to be gone whenever an attack comes along. There are lots of factors that supposedly make your tenants happy, but there is really no useful descriptions as to what they are. I don't know. It may work for you, but it just felt bland to me.

If you don't like any of the tags then don't play this game.

Otherwise, this game is great. Instead of just watching your tenants "grow" each day, you get the satisfaction of actually seeing that growth first hand.

This game is pretty casual, as any competant gamer would not lose from a random invasion, and harder invasions are self-triggered through quests. But has enough "challenges" to keep the hardcores busy.

A simplistic casual game with a bit of progression to distract you for a couple of hours. The premise is funny, some flavour text, not much beyond that. Score 50%.

For a game under 5 dollars, it's really not all that bad.
You let monsters into your apartment, you give them anything their annoying little hearts desire and they'll love you! Sometimes.

When I first played I couldn't bring myself to stop and go play something else. I was dead-set on breeding the strongest of monsters to conquer everything! Unfortunately doing the same thing over and over can get seriously mind numbing, so now I can only tolerate the game for about 15 minutes a sitting at the most. There isn't a real challenge to this game except for the occasional overly hard quest that you can still beat with minor patience. Still, it's a cute little game that won't forever be a blemish on your library.

A fun management game with demons and cute chibi sprites. load it up on a rainy day or when you ragequit dota and just have some cute fun.

That said, the lack of personalization for the tenants and the lack of depth in tenent management makes the gameplay start to become stale after 1-2 hours in. As it functions right now, the tenants you put into apartments do nothing but spout things they want so that they might love their apartment. If you place tenants of "opposite" moralities, they refuse to become happy because they hate that tenant so much. This kind of relationship system is what this game needs more. More reasons to finagle with the fine print, more reason to really dig in deep and find out that makes each monster happy. Unholy Heights does not do this, and as a result, you will quickly find the best way to play within 2-3 hours in.

Overall though, a good package as the base gameplay of putting tenants into apartments of best suit and keeping everyone in the green satisfies the minor urge to micromanage a building. Highly reccomend if on sale and you have a spare 2-5 dollars in your wallet.

I had no expectations coming into this, and after sinking roughly 10 hours in just two days, I can safely say this was quite the pleasant surprise.

I'm generally not a fan of tower defense games, but this was an unusual, interesting setup with the tower in question being an apartment complex and the means of it being protected is through your monster tenants. To keep things simpler, the game focuses on a single shot of the apartments instead of there being a big map that force you to shift your camera around or multiple screens you have to cycle through constantly.

It can be a bit of a grand as you progress through the game as you have to spend a lot of time waiting for your cash supply to increase and monsters of certain types and genders to stop by and rent a room or hook up with an incumbent tenant if you want to actually beat the game, but it is highly addictive and has a surprising amount of depth as the types of monsters, where each monster lives in your complex, and when you decide to send out a monster to protect your building can be the difference between success and failure.

This game may seem very girly, but it's not.
It's about Satan (you) running a hotel and using the tennets to fight humans that want to kill Satan. Mostly for his teasure. As you progress, the humans become powerful.

The residents (monsters) have needs and requirements to live in the hotel. Each race is different, if you show a perference for the race you'll unlock more of it and powerful versions of it.

Overall this game is adorable and perverted. Worth playing.

The game is simple, and fun to play. Only thinking of the different combinations of tenement I was able to obtain throughout the game made my interest to play this game increased even more. However, it is important to remember that as any strategy game, the opponent will grow stronger too. Additionally, I founded silly what kind of job these monsters had when I started to play it.
Anyway, if you enjoy playing simple games or see your place grow up as you level up...I think, this is the game for you. Enjoy it.
P.S. Who said that the devil lord couldn't have his own business?

A cute game of morality, I would say so.

* Kicking out parents is cruel, but I have to keep them out of the complex : (

* How come two Fishy Ones gave birth to a Pul-Pymesy in my game ? !

* I felt guilty seeing how those of my cute tenants get killed during the ending scene.

And many more...

Two demons were renting a room. they had a child together. Then the parents died. The child had no job and couldn't pay me for the room, it was all alone on the world and it had only me to look after him. But i need money, so i evicted him. I was honestly surprised the game allowed that.
