OK, I'll admit it, sometimes I am not the brightest light bulb in the bunch. There are things that it takes me awhile to figure out or get used to.

When I first started on this site, I thought that releasing creeps earlier gave you more money. (A number shows up; it's green; and it's right next to the money.)

But I soon realized that wasn't the case. That even though number is in green, it is really adding points, not money - darn it.

I don't know what others think; as I am sure you have to have one or the other. (Or can we choose somehow? Sparticus, something else to add to your list.)

Give me your thoughts.

had the same "problem" in the beginning...
took a while to figure it out...
but on the other hand, isn't that part of the fun, that you find out more and more things with time and play?

Ya, the game kinda needs a tutorial or something.

The +10 or whatever that shows up does appear next to your score and not next to your money however :)

I beg to disagree.

While the points appear next to (if you mean to the right of) the score; the points are closer to the money.

The points are in green and adjacent (albeit to the left) of the dollar sign.

Being in green, and adjacent to the dollar sign, is why I though it was money at first.

Or, as I said before, I'm not the brightest bulb in the bunch sometimes, I'm seeing things differently.

Good point. I guess with the limited space I have there it's hard to properly let the player know it's extra points rather than extra gold.

Hopefully after playing a few games they'll figure it out. :)

still his first idea is nice.

Calling Creeps early gives you a bonus in Money!

Would this feature be generally be possible?

Well, anything is possible... but extra money would be harder to balance. Might give the better players an even bigger advantage

If you gave extra money it would be even easier to send everything almost immediately and juggle... not something you could ever balance.
