Sorry for that, it will be fixed with the next update.

Is there a bug where some of the Treants don't award any coins when killed? I seemed to experience that, don't know if it's by design or not.

Great update overall. Thanks for this added content!

In the last level there are many enemies that won't give you money. Treants that spawn randomly from the ground, skeletons, Husks and Swamp Thing that spawn from the swamp.

A new update was recently approved with many bug fixes: Magnus can reach lvl 10, wave timer is back, stage 15 flying waves icons and stage 15 music.

The missing flag will be fixed with next update.

Swamp Thingses are decidedly undelightful. That final wave of Swamp Thingii on iron on the new level is not playing nice with my refusal to use barracks. I shall persevere, however. I have managed to clear every level in the game without barracks (other than that one level where they are required) and I'm not going to let a little thing like eleventy-bajillion Swamp Thingum ruin it for me.

Having fun with the update. Looking forward to the endless mode.

Picked up the game and tried playing the first level...

It seems a little odd that all three buttons on the top left are essentially pause buttons

I also didn't like being booted from the game when I tried to view the strategy guide, I returned to the game and it crashed immediately so I had to start over :/

It needs URGENTLY some more explanations about those "In-App Purchases" for real money! Do you need them for being able to progress? Are ALL the puzzles (levels) solvable without them? Do you need much grinding without IAPs? What are they? Consumables?

Devs should definitively put CLEAR explanations in the main app description. Especially in complex strategy games. A lot of customers simply SKIP games with IAPs (and when the IAPs are not explained at all like here) because there are enough games without IAPs (straight full versions).

IAPs have a TERRIBLE reputation in the iOS App Store!!! Several former good games have been completely ruined by those IAPs.

well the heroes are new to the last update. i beat the entire game (before the update) without them, so they're not required. as for grinding, there really isn't any. if you beat each level without letting a single enemy through, u get 3 stars, the stars u gain can be used to power up your defenses. there is also 2 other modes on each map, that can net u an extra 2 stars, so you get 5 stars per level max. you can change how you allocated your stars at anytime so no worries on wasting them. Everyone should buy the IAP so that Ironhide games makes some more money! One of the best Ipad games for sure!!

@Ironhide - can you guys make heroes a bit bigger please? It's really hard sometimes to select them in the heat of the battle.

You can click their portrait in the top left instead.

I actually didn't find the heroes all that useful so far, I've just tried them on the last level as I completed everything with 5 stars previously.

And the IAP is definitely optional, I completed the game without heroes (I actually doubt their usefulness altogether) and there is zero grinding involved. Easily The best tower defense game on iOS and actually one of the best games on iOS in general. If someone has any doubts, don't hesitate any longer. Just click on Buy.
