Do you have what it takes to defeat the Goblin King?
- I highly recommend you place an archer as your first unit/upgrade
- You can place units on platforms. (Click the platform)
- You can upgrade units and tower segments. (Click on the tower)
- Touch the gold with your cursor to pick it up.
- The game ends at round 14 with a bossfight.
- It's hard and might require a couple tries to get the right combo!
- Good luck and have fun!

Special thanks to Diego (Mage) and Alex (Rock thrower) for giving me moral support and helping test out the final version :)
I really love the artstyle, those tiny characters are really cute, and that way the focus is on the tower.
It's a nice game, haven't been able to beat it yet (I'll try a little more later) but I'm impressed with the diversity in options. There's one issue though: it really feels like there's only one way to progress. Like, at the start you really have to make an archer then upgrade it. And after that you don't really have enough money to try different things, so you have to start again from the start to try out not just new strategies but new units. And it can get pretty long until you have enough money to try the more advanced stuff.
It's a little too punishing, and I would have liked to have more money, even if it meant enemies were tougher, just to be able to see what my options were and form a new plan. Here I'm still gauging what my options are and building blindly.
Like, last run I tried building the 3rd type of wall thinking it would be a great upgrade compared to the slime, but it was a letdown that cost me the run, and I felt like a should have built another pair of archers instead.
It was nice game, cute graphics. Couldn't beat the game, managed to get to 9th level, even after several attempts. Archers did not attack goblins who are closest to the crystal, but who are closest to them. This was my doom several times ^^" Otherwise it was good, bit slow on pace (go faster button maybe?)
Edit. for first jam, very well done :)

Fits the theme. Could've been more original. Wasn't really clear what every object did, like, how much dmg etc.
That's fair enough I suppose. A tutorial was something I wasn't able to implement due to time sadly. On the original part, "Climb the Tower: Everybody wants to climb the tower... it's up to you to build it." I took the theme very literally so I can understand not finding it original. Being my first game jam I didn't have the confidence to pull of something truly innovative, so hopefully next time :D Thank you for the feedback.
The Secret Game Developer Level 2
Nice game. I think It could have used a background song but that's my personal opinion, I did like the other sound effects. Graphics are good, everything looks good and I think it does what it's supposed to do.
Very nice! I'm going to keep this for when I'm bored at school.
zcatv Level 2
Awesome game, I liked that there was no tutorial and you had to figure out things for youself!
Nice game, a little repetitive but relly well done and really good looking:)
