Okay, I tried it out and bought it - I'm a sucker for TD.

What dclose said is correct, the first quarter of the game is free and the rest is 1.99. If you ever played Pixeljunk Monsters this game is very similar with a handful of changes thrown in with bosses and other things I won't spoil as they aren't mentioned in the description. One thing I do like about it over Monsters is the touch to control your character method.

All in all, no regrets on the purchase. It gets tough to win a level on the first try and I've already been at it a couple of hours or so.

Just like Save Silva or whatever it was called, this game has ripped data directly fro, PixelJunk Monsters. Do not support this type of bullshit.

Hmm... The artwork strongly reminds me of Triple Town.

Edit: After a few minutes of playing this, I conclude that it is a ripoff of the outstanding Pixeljunk Monsters PS3 game. I can't support this, but I sure would love to see the Pixeljunk folks port some of their great games to IOS.
