This game is awesome. Def one of the best TD's I have had the pleasure to play in a long time. Very happy with the price I paid for it. I won't go into details on why the game is great, but trust...it is the best TD to hit the AppStore since FR2. Loads of polish.

Think back to the days when there was no Sanuku. I mean, i took a chance, and the more I play it, holy cow. It ranks man. I seriously put this up there with one of my all time fave TD's right now. I liked Kingdom rush, but it was just a little too 'happy go lucky' for me. This is just a full on, in your face, strategy is where it's at TD. I don't know if the word 'charm' is what I would use either. It's more like 'professional/serious/mature.' Even moreso than Fieldrunners which was 'cutesy' compared to this. It's not even about animations either. It's just a hardcore, honest kick ass TD.

Ok, I hope the Devs read this and give me a free IAP upgrade or something, as I should be an honorary spokesman!

You cannot go wrong with buying this; take a chance, and you will thank me later; I'll bet my wife on it! I mean, she says she is going to leave me if I don't stop playing video games...gosh, i'm going to miss her.
(that is all a joke btw, as i love my wife more than anything)

GO E.R.A!

Still an IAP nightmare

One thing that bothers me greatly is that the upgrade costs vs. the amount you earn is disgusting. There is no way we will be able to earn the 'funds/coins/energy' to be able to unlock the the special weapons, consumables, and upgrades at the current rate provided.

So, even a game I love is still an IAP nightmare. WTF?!?!? Makes me ill..

Devs, please fix this And you have yourselfs a masterpiece and a lot more sales, and may even climb the charts.

I almost bought this last night but I'm glad I waited, IAP in a $2.99 game is terrible.

Crash!!!

Man, am I eating my words.

I sure hope the Devs are following this forum.

I was doing pretty good, got to level six(6) on Chapter 1. I shut down the game, didn't close it out or anything, and now when I attempt to relaunch and pick up where I left of, my progress is screwed.
The 'Continue' button on the upper left shows 'Continue 1-1', Where the level obviously shows that I have completed %14 and I am on the 'What's Flickering' level. Screenshot's below..

Now everytime I hit Continue, I am brought back to the first chapter 'The Beginning', and it starts to load it, then immediately crashes.

So, my progress is all gone. Each level is quite taxing and difficult, so now I don't know if I replay the levels or wait for a fix, but considering we haven't heard a peep from the devs, I may be screwed.

What do you all think? Should I wait for a possible fix, or just delete the thing and start over?

They may not be. I would shoot them a support email. There's a link on their site if you click the suggestions tab.
