Looks cool. I love the defense genre games (I will make one one of these days when I stop playing them!) I love the little touches you got in there too (e.g., incoming hordes in the background). I am looking forward to playing it.

On a side note regarding the genre, do you consider this Tower Defense? I have occasionally been going rounds with folks when I use 'Tower Defense' to categorize a game similar to this. Most folks (who would care if they did) accept my categorizing it that way. Should I just call it a 'Defense' game? What do you want to call it? Other than *finally done*! ;)

I wouldn't call it tower defense, but a defense shooter if you want. That genre isn't really well known though, so I decided to simply call it action RPG instead of "defense shooter rpg" ;) About 20-30% of the time is spent in melee combat, so calling it a shooter is also a bit misleading.
Thanks for the feedback. I love these kind of games too, so I figured its time to make a decent one :)

Kudo to the Ethical IAP too. Can I buy away adds? (I am assuming there are ads)

The game is ad-free. I'm a gamer myself and I really don't like ads in games.

I am actually ok~tolerant with ads, especially when the game doesn't have a monetization element (maybe I am being lazy and not thinking of one!) So I sort of have come to terms with ads in games. But I love an add free experience so I tolerate them and buy them away, that is why I asked. Thanks for putting up with my questions! It looks solid. I am looking forward to giving it a spin.
