Good graphics and music. Little confusing to play.

I like the music. The stats and such on the monsters was hard for me to pick up quickly, but I haven't played a lot of this sort of defense game so it might just be me. I just sort of tossed whatever I could out on the lane where there was an attacker and hoped for the best.

If you wanted to expand on it.. I think animating the characters would add a lot. The 'attack' frame they do is fine, I just mean having them also 'tween' to their next node during the turn count down, I mean.

I also think the art is well done, but the units would benefit from a border.. either 1 px black, or maybe either '1' (navy) or '2' (maroon) based on the owner of the unit. I usually do something like this:

function pspr(id,x,y,outline,w,h)
 w = w or 1
 h = h or 1
 for i=0,15 do pal(i,outline) end

 for ix=-1,1 do for iy=-1,1 do
 end end

 for i=0,15 do pal(i,i) end

hey, thanks for feedback! I might use the code snippet - I agree that it looks a bit weird when the sprite and background merges.

As for animations - I am working on an updated version with a "campaign" style thing added, and there is just not enough sprite data to have animations for all the troops, hence this simplification! (also I struggle with art :))

Nah I just meant to have them 'glide' along. No need to use different frames.

i played two games

lost 1st, won 2nd

It was pleasant but I don't see any replayability

Also I don't think the archer is attacking from distance
