Evilot, the first title from Chilean game developer Syrenaica is available today for PC and as a universal iOS app for iPhone and iPod touch, no longer exclusive to iPad. Combining the best elements of two popular genres, Evilot is a puzzle defense game where players command the forces of Count Dolfus, a retired semi-evil mastermind whose brooding Golden Years are being disturbed by an army of do-gooders bent on conquering his castle (and stealing all his loot). A free demo version is available on the iTunes App Store along with the full version for $0.99, while the Windows PC version is a mere $1.99.
Accessible to even casual players, Evilot’s 50 levels are set up on a grid with the forces of Dolfus defending against baddies (err… goodies?), who race down lanes toward mountains of hard-earned treasure. Gameplay goes beyond the traditional “set it and forget it” tower defense mechanic, adding a puzzle-based unit upgrade system. Place three of the same units together in a column or row and they combine to create a more powerful, leveled-up unit. Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades, or spread them out for a weaker, but wider defensive spread. It’s a compelling twist on tower defense that is easy to play, yet difficult to master. Funded partially through Kickstarter, the title’s orchestral score sets a mood suitable for a Transylvanian invasion.
