[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Tronix Defender’

Tronix Defender

This time the spotlight will be shining on Tronix Defender, a funky tower defense with quite the minimalistic design. What say we help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Tronix Defender is a retro-styled arcade, tower-defence game where you must protect your computer core from attack by hacker-bots and trojans and has Randomised Levels for ultimate replayability!

A tower defense without pre-defined maps/levels is quite a rarity, although I suspect the reason for that is that randomly generated levels for this particular genre is tricky at best. Definitely a plus in my books, as it should – in theory – boost replayability significantly. That and its handful of different modes, along with upgradeable towers and enemy variety. Oh and those visuals. They may not be for everyone, but honestly, I like the retro-ish look showcased here. It’s clean and easy to manage – perfect fit for this kind of game. Also, one-man project. Impressive.

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Tronix Defender still struggling to get through Greenlight? Ain’t out just yet, but a playable demo is. As such, how about visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!
