This review was written after I beat the game.
Fun and reasonably challenging. The dialogue, voice acting, and story, though sparse, are pretty funny, too.
Each level is really a puzzle to be solved - there's not necesarilly a "correct" solution for how to place your traps, but there's "aha" moments when you discover a feature of the level that makes a certain setup very effective.
The fact that you get to control a hero makes the gameplay much more fun - you can have a big impact on the enemy waves with skilled shooting and use of the various magic spells.
There's plenty of replayability in competing on the leaderboards or among your friends for a high score.
My one major complaint is that several of the levels have a split design where you can't force all of the enemies through one choke point, so you have to split up your attention between them or set up lots of traps and hope they're working well enough. It's kind of annoying to mentally deal with this and spend time running back and forth. I understand the point of the game is to be mentally challenging, but this task is more mentally exhausting than it is fun.
I also don't like that you aren't told in advance exactly what enemies will be coming through which doors before each round. If you want to go for really good scores, it's just an unnecesarry and un-fun memorization tax upon you to remember each wave.
