Pew Pew Puzzle Defense
Released: July 2019
Available on: Steam itch.io
Inspired by action puzzle games like Puzzle Bobble and tower defense hybrids, Pew Pew Puzzle Defense combines multiple genres for fast-paced arcade fun. Build and upgrade towers, shoot down chained block colors, and collect enough coins to make it onto the leaderboards. Switch between different field sizes, difficulty levels, single-player, and local co-op or versus modes!
My wife and I love playing co-op tower defense hybrids. In fact, I manage a Steam curator list where I keep track of our favorites. So I'm always thinking about how TD elements can be introduced to other genres.
On a related "note," the theme song from Puzzle Bobble (aka Bust-a-Move) constantly gets stuck in my head. One day, when that song was playing in my head again, it suddenly struck me... what if those kinds of puzzle games had different towers to build and play with? And thus, here we are.
