Game is ok. With some more levels it could make a good puzzle/action game.
It seems inspired by flash webgames.
DQ because twistedness is completely absent.

what is twisted here?

Gotta love defence games. Nice take on it.

Amazing work! definitely my favourite. Interesting design, I always wondered how to make a non-traditional RTS for pyweek and it seems you achieved it.
Only question... where is the twisted theme? in the branches?

Frobbershatted! That can't be good...

The game has both the best graphics and definitely the best music of all pyweek games this time around. All hail CC licenced stuff! The gameplay is pretty average tower defence-esque stuff, but it's still balanced and enjoyable. I noticed one weird bug when I was playing – my upgrade strategy was birds level 2, birds level 3, insects level 2, and this resulted in the birds nest reverting to generating crows.

nice game. original.

This is one of the best games I've tried for this PyWeek. I love the graphics, the music is sometimes boring but it's nice. Some sound effects are missing. The game play is fun but it could be improved. I think this game is very similar in concept to Onslaught. Again, I like the polished production.

Excellent, the graphical style is really nice, everything seems well put together and the game is a lot of fun. It's a shame it's not longer-lived; additional difficulty levels or extra waves would have been nice for increasing longevity.

This game could benefit from tuning things, adjusting margins, varying effectiveness, and stuff like that. As an endurance game it feels a little thin in the amount of stuff to manage; more options and attacks would be nice. Maybe some unlockables as a reward. Background music is nice.

Good fun. Would have been nice if there were some instructions on how to play within the game - I resorted to the README, but I imagine many players would just give up. The balance seems good, although it would have been nice to have a little more variety in the available creatures, or at least an easier way to see what their effects were.

Different, and challenging!

I could't figure out how to play :( (or win)

Awesome job. Some tweaking in the graphics to make the different upgrades and leaf jobs more distinctive would go a long way. Consider adding a winning condition, or at least a score summary at the end of the game (it doesn't even tell you what wave you got up to). After some play time it gets a bit easy -- there's no strategy beyond simply adding more crows and upgrading their nests -- perhaps the humans should attack the nests as well? Or the tree topology should change?

nice tower-defense game. the interface really could have used some tweaking - for example a highlight, when something is drag/clickable. but it was fun for a while, though i'm not really in that tower-defense thingy.

one of my favorite entries, because everything fits together.

how is the theme integrated? i'm no DQing you because I assume its the twisted-path up the tree.. well, okay.

Good game! It needs a little more predictability, for player to develop strategies, etc; otherwise, you play it twice and it's done

I don't like to be forced to read the readme to understand simple stuff. However, after I understood how everything worked the game turned out to be quite fun :)

Fun "Tower Defense" game with twisting paths.

Good game! Seemed a bit easy to me - once I got to level 5 nothing really got about the first cross. Good music, pretty. Perhaps the text for King Human was a bit too close to the edge, but that doesn't really matter.

really nice, but afaik birds are far superior to insects

Thats a wierd game.

2 4 4

Nice game, but it the attacks seem quite weak in the beginning.

2 3 3

It simple!

4 4 4

Quite addictive!

I like it! More levels!

tower defense is always fun, It's not obvious what the difference between different creatures are (why I can build two types), but maybe I just didn't pay attention enough.

I loved it. Nice relaxing defense game with great art. Too bad it's hard to balance a defense game well.

A fun story with nice graphics.

Praises to King Tree! Had some fun for an hour building the whole "tech-tree" and admiring the
tanks on the tree.. There isn't much reason to play again once you've seen everything but
still: Very well done!

Original idea for a RTS,
and also funny,
but poorly balanced.
It's hard to survive long.

Quite addicting - Good work! :)

Really cool game, I loved it :)

I like the concept of tower defence games.

You could add some more types of defence. (bugs? worms?)
