The Devil has converted a tenement building into monsters-only housing in Unholy Heights, a mashup of Tower Defense and Apartment Management Simulation. Sucker monsters into moving into your building, charge them rent and keep them happy by buying them furniture.
Unfortunately, heroes have caught wind of the Devil's plan, and will stop at nothing to wipe him out. Knock on residents' doors to call them to battle, trap heroes in devious pincer formations, and command your troops to victory. Monsters get jobs, fall in love, have children, and even skip out on their rent. Keep them happy or you might not have anyone to fight for you when heroes come knocking.

Unholy Heights is a game where you rent out apartments to strange and evil monsters. This warrants the attention of various good-natured people who come to destroy your building and all the unholiness that resides in it. When that happens you have to decide who comes out first to defend. The battles are all done in single file line; so you want to have a melee first, then a ranged,read more and perhaps a caster bringing up the rear. There are also quests that you can do for more gold that you use to improve or expand your apartments with.
Gameplay: The game is very basic. There is very little visual representation of the hard earned money you spend on your apartments. I was expecting more depth to in the management side, but there is only the bare basics. The battles themselves are slow. Once you've brought our your denizens you basically just watch to see if they survive.
Graphics - Indy to the core. Nothing here will wow you. The style is semi-cutesy.
Overall - Overall this isn't a bad game. I didn't run into any bugs and everything feels fairly balanced. None of the mechanics were broken or overpowered. However, I just kept getting bored while playing. There's just not nearly enough depth here to keep you for more than an hour and that's stretching it. If you want a single file monster filled tower defense game then this is the only one I know of. If you're thinking like I was and this game was a lighthearted management sim with some combat included, then look elsewhere.

You play as The Devil, a landlord of an apartment building for monsters. You outfit their apartments with modern conveniences fit for each type of monster. Some prefer air conditioning, and others will prefer space heaters. All monsters have different career paths that they follow to make money (some can afford more than others), and sometimes they may lose their employment.read more You need to determine how much they are actually worth, both financially and offensively.
When undesirables come to your building, all of your monsters will flee to their units. From there, you decide on whose door you are going to knock on to fight the intruders. Each of the monsters you have living in your residence have strengths and weaknesses, and you have to figure out the order of who is in the line of defense. If you can't take down the attackers, they will loot your office for all the gold they can hold. Losing to your attackers isn't the end of the game, but losing gold to an attack is always a last resort.
The one big advantage you have is your control over the speed of the game. When combat breaks out, the game automatically slows down to first gear, so you can react without being frantic. You can pause the game altogether and issue commands. You can choose exactly when your monsters come out of their homes, which adds to the strategy of placement of defenders.
Check it out if you like TDSes, but it isn't as 'casual' as it appears.

I've been completely charmed by the art direction of this indie Japanese game. If you're looking for a simple Tower Defense game with a very good soundtrack, good sense of humor and intuitive gameplay then look no further. The music reminds me of Animal Crossing and it fits the mood perfectly. This is the kind of little simplistic game that succeed into adding freshness as youread more progress to keep you playing it and at this price, you can't go wrong. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
