Default TowerMadness™ HD (v1.10 - Three New FREE maps, Gamecenter)




Based on the recent TA front page article, this is not a simple "blown out port over from the iPhone version". TowerMadness HD comes with a split-screen multiplayer mode.

Be prepared to pay again for the flame thrower and the marsh pack (assuming you bought them for the iPhone version). I don't mind paying $8 for a polished iPad version but I was dismayed to find that my in-app purchases didn't carry over.

Edit: they DO carry! Just install the iPhone version on your iPad and under options, select: restore purchases. Then launch the iPad version. A bit tricky, but they are most likely laboring under app store idiosyncrasies.

Worth the $8, in my opinion. The best thing about the iPad is concurrent multiplayer on 1 device, and this game takes full advantage.

There are 2.

The devs PM'd me and told how to get credit for the purchases. See my previous post.

First of all, wahoo! We're so excited to see TM HD finally on the store.

Second, purchases are carried over from the iPhone versions. Here's the procedure:
  1. Install whichever app you used to originally purchase the add-ons, onto your iPad.
  2. Go to the options and Restore In App Purchases.
  3. Launch TowerMadness HD. Voila! Flamethrower / Marsh Madness are now unlocked for free.
  4. You can now delete the iPhone version from your iPad. The purchases should remain unlocked on your iPad forever. If they ever disappear for any reason, repeat these steps.

Limbic would never make you do something so silly as to buy the same thing twice!

Nice game. Purchased it and played one hour. I am no huge TD fan ... I only play Plants vs Zombies.

But this one is pretty fun so far.

Greetings,
Sascha

Same here.
Where is "restore in app purchases" ?
(On Mac OS X)
BTW I love the game...

First of all let me just say that I love this game. But when I try to do the restore purchases as outlined in the quote above I get a message:

"There was an error restoring your purchases. Check your Internet connection and try again."

I do have an active internet connection, and I only have this issue in the iPhone version and it happens if I try it on both my iPhone and my iPad. Is there something additional that must be done for the restore to work properly?

I have already tried reinstalling the game from a fresh download, and restoring to an older version of the game, both to no avail.

Is this related to the removal of the Limbic Vault in v1.10?

Now that's just sad. I hope the devs can chime in on that. Arash and Iman are good members of TA.

So I bought the Lava pack, sheep decoy and mines yesterday. I have the other add ons already. I purchased them on my ipad and now I can not get them on my iphone. How do I do this? Things I have tried:
Options->Restore Purchases - does not work
Deleting & Reinstalling - does not work (now I lost my victories...)

In the past I have purchased on the iphone first, installed on ipad to get the permissions to line up. Any help?
