Alt+Escape: Don't Touch My Gems!

Well, you can touch them, you'll just die horribly in a fire.

Looks fun! Too bad i can't play it... ;_`

ooooo, a tower defense. I was wondering when Alt+Esc would get one.

EDIT: now that I've beat it I have a question. Did anyone else find the second to last level MUCH harder than the last one. I had to grind quite a few level to just barely beat that one and I beat the last one without losing a gem the first try.

Completed this on Kongregate just yesterday, in fact. The trick to remember is you can multi-cast spells with the shift key. Once I figured that out, nuking those bloody Ninja bosses at the end of the hard levels gets a *lot* easier.

Sweet! Tower Defense games <3!

It's a fun game, I just wish it would let me re-assign my skill points.

Fun stuff, started in a few days ago, loved it, left it, probably going to go back to it

You know I just tried this game and it is quite fun. Damn you Alt+Esc! :p

alrady finished this game ages ago adn up to level 32 :D (just rubbing ure faces in it )
still cant stop playing it though despite having done all the levels REPEATADLY :D

...Thank you, Alt+Esc. Thank you for reminding me just how rubbish I am at Tower defense games. ;_;

Seriously, though I've been at this for the better part of two hours now. WHY AM I DOING THIS TO MYSELF??

Really fun game. The only downside is that you pretty much have to grind the same levels over and over in order to get enough levels to get perfect scores.

I agree, this is awesome. I've found that heavily speccing into Undead first makes for easy pickings. I mean, 40% fear on a level 4 tower? That's pretty sweet, right there. Then you get freeze, and the three-shot salvo at the beginning of a wave. Orc looks like the better one to go into next, then Demon. Although I have heard that investing in fully upgraded Meteor is "tha shiz." But anyway, I really enjoy this game, and not even the inability to reset talents matters much, it just adds a bit of thinking to the game.

EDIT: I noticed earlier today that this has become the highest-rated game on Kongregate, despite it only having been there for about a week. I mean, it's not hard to get a good rating on Kong, but this game definitely deserves it.

I am amazed by how addictive this is. Nice pick!
This is one of the best tower defenses I've played, and i haven't played a lot of tower defense games. Anyways, cool game, a bit too addictive, i can't stop playing it.

I didn't like the last few games presented in the Alt+Escape, but this one is gold.

Thanks for the cool game!

Oh yeah, that game is pretty good. I play it through Kongregate, and finally managed to get all 15 Brilliant ratings.

I invested in Demon last; Orc is good either first or second because it increases your cash flow. Demon is best for Meteor because that fully upgraded spell is pretty much the only way to kill Ninja Bosses; I did this last because that only matters when you're going for the Brilliant ratings

GRAGH, its really annoying when you survive the entire round then lose your last gem to the last guy on the last wave!

I actually started with demon and the only levels that gave me any trouble were 6 and 14. Increased exp. really helps and return portal saved me more than once on the hard levels (6 and 14). Low cost meteors were nice when I had to deal with thieves (burning temples also will hit them when they are in stealth if they see another enemy), but I still mostly just crypt spammed and had temples where they would be in range of enough enemies.

Actually what made 6 so hard was the assassins.

Ach, Wilson linked this game in IRC about... two hours ago.
And I'm still playing it.
Damn you, Wilson!
*Goes back to the game*
EDIT: Woo! I completed the game earlier!
And... I've left it on pause...

Really good, although it has a couple of flaws... For example, when a baddie caps a gem, the baddie disappears. This is really stupid, for example when a boss can only cap one gem, meaning they aren't a challenge unless you only have 1 gem left. Overall, a great TD game.

That's an afternoon wasted. Well wasted, but wasted nevertheless

DAMN YOU! I just realised its now 10pm and I have been playing that more addictive than heroin game for most of the day!

I will now have to boycott Alt-Esc because I have important work due in a month if a few more games like this make it on I will never get it done!

Seriously...this is like crack, i can't stop. I think I've played at least 6 hours (ok, i may be exaggerating here, since i don't play it non-stop, but rather in small quantities every now and then) of it today... And i still want to play on! I'm at the last level and all the easy and normal maps are done in brilliant. I don't know why i can't stop playing...gah... I need food. Can someone send me some ?

Intersting, I always tought that my addition to tower defense games was just a predisposition of my own, but it seems that it is generally accepted that everybody gets addicted. Like crack, as Owlslayer said.
And this is one of the best I've played.

I've been playing this for the past few days. It's literally crack. I can't stop for some reason.

I think it technically counts as a coma when I'm playing.

You are evil John.....EVIL

This is actually good, unlike most tower defense games!

Soooo, how do you kill the last wave of level 14 without him touching a gem? He's a level 9 ninja boss with 2500 life. Seeing as a fully powered meteor dose 400 damage, costs 100 magic, and max powered up magic is 500, means spamming all of your magic on that does 2000 damage. Meaning he would have 500 life left. So how do you kill him before he gets to the gems?

I've been playing this for a few days. Mainly due to my girlfriend point it out to me, in strangely backwards nature.

Catapult towers completely break this game, get 2 or 3 next to eachother, game over.

By far one of the most enjoyable and addictive defense games I've played in a long time. I finished playing this a week or two ago, and just seeing the title here made me want to start it up again. IriySoft, the developers, basically transmute meh into awesome every time they lay their hands on the genre, so I wasn't particularly surprised. It's not as in-depth as, say, Gem Craft (which you should check out if you enjoyed this), but it does require a surprising amount of strategy for how simple it seems to be.

Happy to see the developers getting more love here!

BUT I'M SUPPOSED TO GET UP EARLY TOMORROW!!! Oh wait I meant today... DAMN YOU!!!
5 hours will have to be enough before a 3 hour mini crunch to beat our milestone.
Oh wait 4.5 hours... DAMN YOU!!!

chilling cypts are over powered, they have long range and three attacks, and can freeze and scare enemies

this game ffffff rocks!!!!!!!!!

What happened to this weeks one?
