Curator Defense provides the player with the ability to create a number of unique defensive structures. These structures can stun, slow, do splash damage or direct damage among many other versatile attacks.

The defense banister is the cheapest of all the defensive structures. When used by itself, it is all but worthless; in a proper maze, however, it can maximize the damage output from other structures.

The sharp banister is the defense banister's big brother. Fitted with iron spikes, this banister twirls its ropes at enemies as they pass within melee range.

Simple turrets are cheap but effective-- in groups. They are the basic element of any decent defense.

Speed turrets fire small pellets at an extremely fast rate. They can be activated once every 30 seconds to fire at twice their normal speed for the next five seconds.

Power turrets, although expensive, pack serious punch. They are a must-have for waves with an extra-helping of hitpoints.

The splash turret is something to put on the "save up for this" list. With a decent splash radius, any enemies within the range of its projectile upon explosion take full damage-- it is especially effective against slower enemies.

The slow sign strikes fear into the hearts of any piece of modern art: they slow down as soon as they can read the part that says "wet paint." Slow signs can be activated once every 10 seconds to slow enemies even more for the next five seconds.

The Other Venus (or simply "Venus") is a mystery to scholars everywhere. Resembling the Venus de Willendorf, this tiny statuette-- when angered-- causes all robotic creatures nearby to stop in their tracks. Its effects are not permanent, and it becomes in operable after use for a short period of time; it is, however, incredibly powerful if used properly.

The Ghost Detector is necessary against waves of enemies that have already died (ghosts). Without them, these enemies will be completely invisible and unattackable. Enemy ghosts within range of a ghost detector, however, can be attacked as long as they are in range.
