Evilot is a puzzle defense game where you play as Count Dolfus, a retired evil mastermind that’s forced to interrupt his Golden Years to keep ambitious heroes and adventurers from stealing back his hard earned treasure. Prepare your defenses carefully; you wouldn't want all that evildoing to be for nothing. Features include: - Unique puzzle defense mechanics and level-up system - 50 levels, across 5 territories - 15 playable defender units and 5 special summons. Evilot goes beyond simple defense mechanics with the addition of puzzle elements, namely a grid based level-up system for units that adds an entire new level of gameplay. For example, if you place 3 units in a row or column, those units are combined into one single, more powerful unit. These mechanics diminish the need to collect resources, instead rewarding strategic planning and effective defensive positioning.Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades and combos,or spread them out for a wider defensive line.
Chilean game developer Syrenaica announces the launch of its first title: "Evilot" , now for Linux and available through Desura. The title has been release for both 32/64 bit flavors.
Combining the best elements of two popular genres, Evilot is a puzzle defense game where players command the forces of Count Dolfus, a retired evil mastermind whose brooding Golden Years are being disturbed by an army of do-gooders bent on conquering his castle (and stealing all his loot). Funded partially through Kickstarter, the title's orchestral score sets a mood suitable for a Transylvanian invasion.
Accessible to even casual players, Evilot's 50 levels are set up on a grid with the forces of Dolfus defending against baddies (err... goodies?), who race down lanes toward mountains of hard-earned treasure. Gameplay goes beyond the traditional "set it and forget it" tower defense mechanic, adding a puzzle-based unit upgrade system. Place three of the same units together in a column or row and they combine to create a more powerful, leveled-up unit. Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades, or spread them out for a weaker, but wider defensive spread. It's a compelling twist on tower defense that is easy to play, yet difficult to master.

Kotaku says: "Chilean developer Syrenaica's Evilot may look a lot like Plants Vs. Zombies, with the whole lane-based defense thing, but it's significantly more than that. It's an evolution. "
Windows Linux version is a mere $1.99.

Fantastic gameplay twist makes this an "evilution" of the puzzle defense genre. Challenging, rage inducing but absolutely well balanced. Really, really fun and great value for the price!
