Player Feedback:

"We couldn't stop playing."

"I’m inspired by you all to start my own game."

"There are natural obstacles which create natural choke points, and being able to funnel enemies through certain areas where I can focus my towers sounds like fun to me."

I've always loved being able to maze/influence creep paths.
