Kingdom Rush, the best tower defense

This may be the best tower defense game you've ever played. Or at least the cutest.
I don't even really like tower defense games and I enjoyed this a lot.
Kingdom Rush has both well-thought out tactical depth, has some brilliant innovations (e.g. reinforcements... and then there a bunch of suprises I won't spoil) , and is very very very high polished for a free flash game. The loving attention to detail is sometimes astonishing.
It only came out last week or something, so there are a few things that could be tweaked, but I could find very very few issues.
For veteran gamers: the game's difficulty gets much harder after you get halfway or so through the levels. So don't worry if you find the first levels too easy. Also the many of the special challenges available after you complete a level with 3 stars are difficult.
For beginner gamers: you may want to switch to easy mode, especially after the halfway mark.
Note on the upgrade screen: "Marksmen" is unclear but seems to refer to all archer towers. Legionnaires, warriors etc. refer to better classes of automatic reinforcements.
Note at some early point, the game offers you upgrade points if you visit the developers on Twitter and Facebook. As I understand it, you get these points just for visiting - you don't have to join or like their pages. You don't have to do this at all to do well at the game but I thought it was a reasonable ask and ended up joining.
