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.


Evilot features:
· Unique puzzle defense mechanics and level-up system
· Challenging, fast-paced gameplay
· 50 levels across 5 diverse territories
· 15 playable defender units and 5 special summons
· Original orchestral soundtrack specially composed for Evilot

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.

first there is no Linux stand alone installer and desura 64bit client version does not allow to install it since its 32bit game and didnt give notification to me for the reason so i accidentally tried 32bit desura client and then download the game.
really desura client sucks very much no notifications at all.

It's actually quite different from Plants vs Zombies, it's a lot more puzzle than just tower defense. To upgrade units, you have to place 3 of them in a row or column, but that means you're now only occupying one square instead of 3, so you have to be careful not to leave any rows unguarded. You get new units when one of your units dies or when one of the enemies is killed, but they're always the level 1 units and it can take a bit of work to get 9 of them together for a good, strong unit (If an upgraded unit is killed, it only drops a lv1 unit, so you have to be careful about that, too). It's pretty fun, but it gets challenging very quickly!

Yeah, definitely... better not even be off by one square, or your lane unit cannot be upgraded! That can mean the difference between success and failure, and quick thinking is required. I usually don't go for "casual" titles, but there is a tactical element here which makes up the difference for me. I can't speak to PvZ similarities (I got it in a Humble Bundle, but haven't actually tried it yet), since it's more on the "casual" side, but if it's like Evilot, then perhaps it will be fun for me, as well.

Why does it say "Platforms: Windows, Linux", but there's no Linux release?

We are working on it. We've actually submitted it to Desura on both Linux and Linux64. It's pending approval and should be launched very soon. Thanks for your support.

I have it! The 64-bit version plays really well for me. Please post the 32-bit & 64-bit standalone installers as well (as you've done with the Windows "EXE" installer). We need those for robust backups.

Pretty fun and challenging so far. It's my first commercially-bought node-webkit game for Linux, and I have to say, it's running as smoothly as can be. I'll definitely be pointing out Evilot to other indie devs as a success-story for Linux ports using NW.

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!
