  • Summary: Lucky Frame brings you their latest crazy musical game creation: Bad Hotel. An insane hybrid of tower defence and procedural music, with beautiful art and tons of bullets.You are a budding entrepreneur, whose hotel is rather unfortunately located within the territory of Tarnation Tadstock, the Texas Tyrant. Your only defense against Tadstock’s army of seagulls, rats, yetis, and more is to build your hotel as quickly and intelligently as possible, using an array of increasingly sophisticated weapons.The beautiful artwork, quirky storyline, and frantic gameplay all work seamlessly together with a generative music system, which creates original music depending on the player’s actions and decisions. The player becomes a composer, creating complex musical structures to defend their hotel. A vast variety of music can be generated, from delicate beach chillout to country banjo techno. Expand

    Bad Hotel is the sort of quirky 'indie' title that helps to make the iOS platform stand out from its peers; tower defense has never been quite so literal and fun.

    While the game feels devilishly difficult to the point of nigh-impossibility at times, eeking out your wins always manages to prove a method to Bad Hotel's madness. And despite the occasional crash here and there, Lucky Frame have delivered on too cool a concept for that to matter.

    Besides this odd control jumpiness, Bad Hotel is a delicious treat for eyes, ears, and intellect. It's a delightful way to spend some time in a nice comfy chair, iPad in hand, with perhaps a glass of wine and fuzzy slippers upon the feet.

    If you enjoy weird, wonderful things or have ever wondered what it'd be like if Pug Luv Beats had been more of a game than a musical toy, you seriously need to check out Bad Hotel.

    With its clever gimmick, smart design, and charming sense of style, Bad Hotel is a fine addition to the tower defence genre.

    The core of this game, though, is filled with fun and frantic gameplay. Being able to control the game's music is the cherry on top. This is definitely a cool and quirky game. Tower defense fans will definitely do well to grab a copy before Tadstock blows it up.

    It's a good indie project. Lucky Frame have proven they're capable of finding the middle ground between the most disparate concepts and they've just about pulled this one off.
