A bit over a week ago, I issued a warning: Desktop Tower Defense Considered Harmful, saying:
Whatever you do, please DO NOT click the link and start playing that game. You may find yourself in the very same time warp that I did...
Several days ago, as I approached the lunch table (yes, it's a specific table), a co-worker said (roughly) "I haven't had any spare time since you posted that damned link to Desktop Tower Defense..."
That was followed by a discussion of Tower Defense strategy that taught me two very important things:
- far more people than I realized are playing this as much as I am (or... more!)
- fully upgraded squirt towers really do kick ass
And, if my outbound click stats from MyBlogLog's analytics are any indication, I've been aiding in the spread of this game to the tune of ~250 victims per day!
Well, given the amount of my time it has consumed, I've decided to put an end to the madness. First, a screenshot of my most recent win on the "normal" level:
I've won it about 5 times now and am sufficiently bored with it that I think I can stop. I could try for the next harder setting, but that'd be like cracking open a new bottle of scotch after an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
So, that's it. I'm done. I quit. I've beat the damned thing on two levels multiple times.
But don't let that stop you. Feel free to keep on playing. I'll be the one trying not to download a copy of Silent Wings.
