    Unholy Heights is so good, it’ll make you feel sympathy for the devil.

    It is an incredibly charming resource simulator that is made to be played on a Nintendo 3DS. The controls are easy enough that anyone can start playing, but the gameplay will challenge everyone who tries it.

    Unholy Heights' unusual background, coupled with its addictive dynamics and comical details, provides the basis for a game that will be difficult to let go of once the player is emerged into it.

    Unholy Heights is a blend of tower defense and management sim that doesn't over-complicate either element. Although some might wish the gameplay was deeper in certain places, there is a good seasoning of inner complexity that should keep many engaged. Add to that a charming, not-so-evil evil motif and some goofy (if not always the most grammatically correct) flavoured text, and it can be easy to get hooked - if you don't get frustrated by the spiking difficulty curve.

    Neither side of the game will exactly challenge your mastery over their respective genres, but the cutesy aesthetic, light sense of humour, and general balance of the game is spot on. This is something that’s easy to play in the background while watching television or a movie, and sometimes that’s all you’ll need or want.

    Unholy Heights, though well-crafted and humorous, is far from perfect. The combination of the two genres may seem like a fantastic idea on paper (and it does indeed lead to some enjoyable moments of gameplay), but there's far too much empty space for extended play sessions to be consistently fun. That said, it fills a hole left open for two of the most starved genres on the eShop, and fans of either tower defence or simulation could do far worse than to spend a few hours in the devil's shoes.

    A simple apartment management/tower defense game. Very unique. I first played this on PC about a year ago and enjoyed it there. WouldA simple apartment management/tower defense game. Very unique.
