decent little game. It could use a little pizzaz but it demonstrates the taxi cab game principle just fine.

Extar responds:

Thanks for playing!

Controls are a little sloppy, but only a little. Everything else about the game was pretty solid, high replay value, nice array of different difficulty enemies. The various types of exploding crates were also a nice feature. Nearly perfect. Nearly.

It's the Tom Fulp redemption arc, and I am totally here for it.

Excellent game. The arcade coins system really adds to the replay value. I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the Necromancy orb, though. I like how it combines the best parts of a tower defense and a melee based fighter.

Thank you! The vampire and necromancer orbs will be available next patch.

No animations for attacks, no character graphics at all, and then add weird creepy imaginary text-only sexual encounters?

Seems too much like a text-only RPG to justify being an arena battle game.

If you want to see this done right, look at Sands of the Coliseum (also on NG) to see a good example of turn based fight mechanics.

Didn't like it. Felt like controls were made janky intentionally to create fake difficulty.
Error margins for obstacles were too tight in the instructional stages.
Not enough going on visually to justify game play, death scene was the only interesting visual and that happened way too often in what was supposed to be the tutorial levels.

Good game, interesting concept, quick and fun...
But saves don't seem to work.
Would be a solid 4 if the saves worked.

zorantronics responds:

We only have it saving the highest level you've unlocked so far, which works for our end. Is this the saving you're talking about?

EDIT: Oh, we've updated this game to a new version. If you've played before sometime this morning, unfortunately we've lost your save data :( sorry!!!

Game stopped getting past the loading screen after the first time I upgraded my towers.
Not sure if this is a data cache issue or not.
Doesn't run at all on IE, and only ran until my last save on Chrome.
Only leaving this review because I know a lot of game devs use Newgrounds for their game testing/debugging.
Gameplay was faithful to the original, just needs some compatibility tweaks.

Been playing this game like crazy for months, the whole thing is genius. Some of the characters have balance issues, but I'm hoping a lot of that has been patched in the steam version. I held off reviewing/voting on this game until I'd played it for a while, and it's excellent and really over delivers on what should be expected from an online/flash game. 10/10, keep up the good work. And yes, I just bought the steam version, and I'm looking forward to playing the full balanced version.

The concept of the zoom of death is cool, but other than that there's not a whole lot going on here.

I ain't snitching on myself no more. If you don't know you better ask somebody.
