Teyon bringing Unholy Heights to PS4

Posted on September 9, 2016 by Jason Nason

The awarding winning unique mashup of Tower Defence and Demon monster apartment management, Unholy Heights, is being brought to the PlayStation 4 by Teyon next week.

In the game you adopt the role of the Devil, who creates an apartment for monsters to defend against pillaging wannabe heroes! In this interesting Tower Defence game you sucker monsters to live in your apartment building by buying them furniture according to their needs. Once they are in your apartment, have them breed stronger offspring, charge them rent or KICK THEM OUT!

Your army is the only thing in the way of you and the sickeningly sweet good folk who try and erase the monsters presence.
