As soon as I saw the raving rainbow cat on the trailer, I knew it was the one.

It's really awesome. Too bad the mp is dead. You should get with some friends and play it together. It's pretty challenging which makes it more fun ones you beat a level.

I love this game. I have always loved this game. Something about FPS meets tower defence game that just speaks to me. Not only that - the way that it beutifully satisfies the different types of players in Co-op means (outside of Portal 2), its the game you have to have as a co-op.

I would like to see some more maps, but with Sanctum 2 here - Im thinking this is not something I am ever likely to see. But, counterbalance this with what is now a very reasonable price, and you've got yourself a highly enjoyable game thats worth the spend when your looking to share your evenings with that special IP address.
