I'm very impressed with Archtower. It's been put together really well. I liked how you have enabled the mouse to pan around in this 2d pixel environment and I had great fun playing Archtower. The graphics and the audio track add to the nice atmospherics of the game . The controls work really well and overall the mechanics are pretty good.

Overall, I think it has a lot of potential so I will keep on eye on Archtowers development

Great work DEVS
