I tried giving this game a fair shake. I really did. But it doesn't get much better (currently on the cusp of hell difficulty). My main gripe is the gameplay loop is boring, with little to no thought needed. Play a wave, choose upgrades, enhance, repeat. You just grind and grind to get to the point where the game plays itself, and then you've just wasted tens of hours.

Great game overall, the progression is smooth and straightforward, or as complicated as you want it. It feels similar to a TD game, but instead of placing things along a track, you fine-tune your monsters to deal with the oncoming waves. The tutorial is somewhat lacking, but everything is easy and fun to figure out. Very minimal predation on the in-app purchases, and nothing is permanently locked behind a paywall. I'm going to try out their other games to see how they hold up!

I like that I'm managing a team without having to micromanage them, lots of synergy and complexity to play with, and the metaprogression slowly unlocking automation and dangling carrots I actually want in front of me feels great. It seems like it's designed to take a very long time to unlock everything, and that you can 100% it without a single ad or cent spent. I really, really like this.
