Hi, are you planning a sequel

Thanks for the answer. I wish you success with the game

It is a fun short game. And i love it! :p

Does the reverse tower defense game have to upgrade the minions? Couldn't there just be combination uses for each type. Also why is the Cleric and Knight only playable in the last level? Aaaannd you can do this game fast without using anything but basic skeleton with the upgrade system sooo.

It's a super casual game done in two days for a game jam, so there were tons of features and levels scrapped due to time constraints. I might revisit this project at a later date but for now it is what it is.

Cute, little game!

Fun game, but even the last level could be won by just spamming units

Even without upgrading? If so then this game is too easy.

Good game.

I would love to switch the option of clicking the numbers 1-9 for the enemys to click directly on the enemy with the mouse

time speed increases whole speed but it should only affect the crew.

This game is awesome, but it's to short.
