---STORY---
There is a story of a beautiful princess trapped in the castle of a horrible demon. Many brave warriors have fallen trying to face the dangerous traps of the castle to save the princess!

The truth, however, is much darker: The master of the castle is no one but the princess herself! She is a bloodthirsty sadist, who uses terrible dark magic to set traps for the hapless heroes who invade the castle, then uses their blood to create new traps!

Can the heroes survive the dangers of the castle and "save" the princess? or worse, take her to some mental care institution? Not if the princess can do something about it!

Like Plants VS Zombies, but an even better concept. xD I prefer the pixel art too. :3

She definitely needs a new game sometime. Maybe when I am less busy with my current stuff.

Place three spike carpets right near the entrance, after the first knight dies place a wall on the first hill, then keep placing new spike carpets every time the old ones get destroyed and fix the wall if it's getting destroyed.

Okey I've beated that level with your advice and finished the game.

You're planning on making a sequell :3 ?

When I have the time yes, perhaps make it a bit more like an actual tower defense with more and upgradeable traps because this one turned out to be more like a puzzle game with just one solution for every level. And I'll include more story and areas, not just the castle halls.

This is an awesome and original idea for a game! This is really fun to play and the graphics are great too, it looks like something you'd play on the NES. Anyway, this is just fucking awesome, this better get a DD.

Thanks! Glad you liked it.

It's far from perfect, being my first attempt to make a defense style game, but I aim to improve lots of things in possible sequel.

A sequel you say? :eyes:
I'd promo the hell outta that. and I'd love to see one! Great for a first defense style game especially. It was really fun but I always get stuck =P but challenge is part of any good game. uwu

I might not work on them anytime soon because I'm already working on other new games, but I've been thinking of 2 different Mad Princess games besides this one. Prequel that takes place before this game and explains how she got her blood powers and lost her mind, and sequel that takes place after this game, now powered up by all the blood she has collected, the princess leaves her castle to seek revenge on the one who took her sanity and caused the whole bloody mess in the first place.

This game was supposed to be about how she got her powers, but I had to cut lots of planned content out to get this done on time for Ludum Dare. I'll save the new traps, levels and story bits for the sequels.

That's completely understandable. It sounds like you have a lot of great ideas and I'm looking forward to seeing even more of them in action. It'll be exciting to see her backstory and stuff, and I'm really looking forward to it. :)
