A downloadable game for Windows

Download NowName your own price

Big Beautiful Wall is a vertical tower defense game in the most literal sense. In the game you build a monolithic wall and then defend it against hordes of deplorables.

The game is currently under active development and will be regularly updated until version 1.0 (current verion is 0.1).

Current Features

  • Endless mode. How long can you survive against the hordes?
  • 8 different classes of attackers, each with their own abilities.
  • 4 types of defenders.
  • Juggle different resources such as oil, power and money to best defend the wall.
  • A unique twist on addictive tower defense gameplay.


Planned Features

  • Campaign mode. A variety of maps, and in between rounds, research new defenses.
  • 20+ types of defenders.
  • 30+ classes of attackers.
  • More resources (some of which will be secret).
  • Bigger, more beautiful walls. Larger blocks and defenses can be unlocked to deal with stronger, larger attacks.

Pay What You Want

The game is available to download under a pay what you want model (even free). Any support is much appreciated.

NB: If you are considering paying for the game, first of all thank you. Secondly, please keep in mind that I intend to sell this game for $5 at full release. So anything in excess of that amount, while very much appreciated, is beyond what I consider that game to be worth.

When do you think is the next update?

As the game has had limited popularity (no big surprise), I've decided to reign in the scope and I am going to make one big last update as opposed to lots of smaller ones.

I won't be expanding the game beyond the current endless wave mode. Instead I am just going to extend and expand the current mode. You can expect more weapons, more enemies, more waves and hopefully more fun.

As for how long this will take I'm not sure, this is no longer the main project I'm working on so I can't dedicate a huge amount of time to it. Just as a ballpark it'll probably be somewhere between 1-3 months, which may be longer than the Trump presidency with the way things are going.

Thanks for the continued interest though! I'll do my best to get it out asap.

I tried it around a week ago and it seemed extremely hard. Hope it'll become a bit balanced. I showed a very small bit of (cheated) gameplay in the beginning of a video of another game though :)

Thanks for playing. Would you mind telling me what round you got to (roughly)?

It's a little hard to balance. Because of the sandbox nature of the defences, there are strategies which are very effective, but may not be obvious to some players. So I have to make a decision on whether to base the difficulty curve on effective defenses or less effective ones.

I'll probably try and fix this by adding an easy mode that gives the player more initial money. Or perhaps increases the money dropped.

I'm working on putting out at least one more update for the game. It's taking a little while as I'm juggling it with another project, but it'll come soon. And I hope you'll enjoy the game more then.

Hello! I wonder - how to contact you about this game by email? :)

What do you wish to talk about?

Amazing game. Made it to round 39. I kinda wish the wall yell from the trailer was in the actually game screen. Looking foreward to your next update.

Thanks alot! I'll be sure to include the yell next update ;)

I'll also try to include an update checker for the next update, so you dont have to keep checking this webpage.

Lol :P yw :P. TBO you seriously should add more stuff to this game! i hope thats ur plan anyway cus i can actually see this going somewhere :p

That's the plan, bear in mind I only released the game 4 days ago, so updates'll take a while. I'll aim to get another update out within a fortnight.

I'm currently working on this and one other project. So between that and IRL stuff, I have very little spare time to develop.

I hope you had fun. I'm curious, if you're willing to give some feedback: Did you play for long? What round did you get to?

I played for about an hour. at the beggining it was a little hard to figure out how to play, but once i got the hang of it it was actually really easy. The highest round that i was able to get to was round 100... although at that point i probably could have gone on to infinity XD. I recommend creating more things to hold the player back. Possibly, when you add more types of defences and what not, maybe make some kind of toung and cheek "story mode" or something. Maybe make it so that as you play the story mode you unlock more types of defences and whatnot. Maybe add upgrades? (what type of tower defence game doesn't have a good set of upgrade amirite?) One problem i see in the game is that after a certain amount of playing, you can basically just spam machine gun kkk's and you really don't have to worry about anything. And after a certain amount of waves they seem to stop getting harder in any respect. One thing I would like to see added to the game is something maybe like a build screen, where you build your wall, and then like a couple of waves play, and then once thats done you can change your wall even more. Another suggestion that I just thought of would be the ability to create much higher walls, maybe make it so that the higher you go there are different types of enemys that come at your tower, maybe that have strengths against some defences but weaknesses against others? Anyway, I've rambled on for a while now, but before I post this: What in gods name does that 1 thing do that has the 3 things, looks sorta like a tesla coil? I have no idea what that is supposed to do...

Thanks alot for taking the time to give such detailed feedback. It's very helpful.

In the current build, rounds stop getting harder at around wave 45ish. This will change in the next build, there will be a couple of levels, and once you get past a certain round, you progress to the next level (keeping the money you earned).

Higher walls will be a thing. Rebuilding after a few waves probably won't, I like the aspect of trying to quickly build while also simulatenously build for the future. However levels won't usually go past round 30, so you can rebuild at the start of every new level at which time you'll have more money to play with.

The main thing I'm trying to figure out is how to balance the KKK's. You're right, after a certain point there doesn't seem to be any incentive to buy anything other than the KKK machine gun.

Ah the tesla coil. First off you can't have it behind a wall. Secondly it has a very short range. If someone get's in range it zaps everyone in a small AoE.
