First Steven mentioned this game. Perhaps some vague notion of self-preservation kept me from diving into the thing right then. (You’ll remember how nuts I went for Flash TD back in January.) Then Jay went and posted a screenshot. Geeze guys, thanks a lot.
So here it is, Flash Circle TD. It differs from the last game in that the critters aren’t trying to get anywhere. You aren’t trying to keep them away from your base, or whatever. They just come in and walk around in circles. The game is over if you get more than 100 at a time. This produces a very different game from more or less the same gameplay mechanics. Interesting.
Jay is hooked as well, which means Apocalypse Cow is most likely languishing while he pummels the circling critters. Curses!
