A new type of Tower Defense? To me, it's more like a new genre of all things. "Tower offense", anyone?

I actually think that, although Villainous does put you in the role of the "villain", it still falls under the genre of Tower Defense because it uses so many of the conventions associated with the genre. The only real difference between this game and any other Tower Defense game is that you command the monsters, not the towers. While that is a significant difference, I'm not sure it's enough to qualify as a whole new genre, in my opinion anyway. That's why I think Villainous is merely an inversion of a typical tower defense rather than a whole new genre. But, I can see why you think it'd deserve a category of its own; I just don't think that the differences are enough to justify declaring a different genre.
