I was lucky enough to test this, and I have to say that it is an absolute blast! If you like defense games you will not be disappointed!

>grin< Tough to type on the iPod, at least with my fingers. The game is a combination of tower defense, line drawing, and tactics, with a very slight emphasis on RPG leveling in that you can upgrade your various ant's abilities and get new ones. There are worker drones who gather food, soldier ants who fight (ground infantry), bombers (flyers--my personal favorite). and spitters (artillery). You gather food and defend your anthill from a large variety of enemies that require you to modify your strategies accordingly. It truly is a unique and fun change to the genre (tower defense), and well worth the money.

Wow, I imagined it YET ANOTHER TD, but this looks pretty original! I'll be sure to grab it the second it come out.

Sorry to make you type so much on the iPod --- you really didn't have to --- you had me at ">grin<"

This game kind of makes me imagine Pikmin with linedrawing controls working really well on iOS.

Wait and see how this one will turn out, kind of wish the levels were a bit more lush/three dimensional, flat backgrounds like this can really turn me off even stellar gameplay.

The video posted in this thread is a prototype-video that's a couple of months old, there is a newer one posted in our announcement thread that does the game more justice and a trailer is coming out later today!
