"For those that enjoy the tower defense and road defense genre, March on Oz is a welcome addition to the fold. With an emphasis on graphics, music and storyline, and well-balanced RTS, March on Oz is definitely worth checking out." 4 Stars.
----------------------

March On Oz is a RTS-style Road Defense game with more than a few twists. Combine action and strategy to defend the road of yellow bricks, defeat the N.O.M.E.S., and rescue Princess Ozma from the evil magic of RuggeDoh! and the Evil Alliance! Create your own adventurers with our "Adventurer Creator" and meet dozens of colorful characters as you journey through a very small part of the vast Worlds of Oz.

Lovingly crafted 3D graphics, effects, and animations bring this unique vision of L. Frank Baum's Oz to life. With over 50 levels and mini-games, adventurer creator, full musical score and sound effects, and dozens of achievements, March On Oz is sure to enchant and challenge you!

THE RETINA DISPLAY NEVER LOOKED BETTER
As you journey through three varied landscapes full of pink waterfalls, hot pool wading walls of fire and snowy landscapes you will have to fight for every bit of road in order to beat back the N.O.M.E. invasion and save Princess Ozma. No Flash or 2D graphics here, the N.O.M.E.S and Ozians have been fully rendered and animated in 3D along with great looking visual effects and animations. Our N.O.M.E.S. are not some cardboard-style bad guys, these little fellows are so much more than that! Keep your eyes on the road because you never know what is going to happen next with them.

THREE LEVELS OF DIFFICULTY
Try to overcome easy, normal, and hard settings with each level of difficulty having been built to ensure a different playing experience. Challenging and Superstar levels coming soon with even more N.O.M.E.S. and Ozians!

N.O.M.E.S, N.O.M.E.S. AND MORE N.O.M.E.S.
Tired of bashing knights, killing zombies and other assorted traditional bad guys? See what our N.O.M.E.S. can do to brighten your day! We have skiing N.O.M.E.S., flying N.O.M.E.S., N.O.M.E.S. that can crush you with a single step and the irrepressible Happy Chainsaw and so many more. Towers are fun but N.O.M.E.S. and Ozians are so much more challenging and watch out for Big Foot N.O.M.E., he really does tower over you!

MINI-GAMES
More than a dozen mini-games and many more to come! Try your luck against the N.O.M.E. invaders or capture flying angel food cake before it disappears or try to survive the waves of N.O.M.E.S. in Where Monkeys Dare!

COMING SOON!
More N.O.M.E.S., more Ozians, more levels and more levels of difficulty as well. And best of all, for owners of the paid version of March On Oz, these updates will be free of charge!

Come join the march and rescue Princess Ozma before RuggeDoh and the Evil Alliance can consolidate their hold on Oz and turn it into a place where only evil reigns supreme!

-- For owners of the iPad2 and newer iPads only--

I will give you a brief rundown of how they work

Note: I am a programmer, all graphics below were made in Microsoft Paint, they are not good.

So Generals do a confuse buff, which follows a couple basic rules...

When a Enemy (X) runs into a General these are the potential directions he can reflect off the General (G):
GGeneralNotBlocked.png

This changes if there are Friendly units blocking the path of the confused unit... so an example of one friendly unit (F) would be:
GGeneralOneBlocker.png

...and to continue that example, here is one with multiple blocking friendly units...
GGeneralThreeBlockers.png

The general strategy of the Nome Herding levels, and the Green Generals, is to use friendly units to block off potential avenues of movement to effectively herd the unit towards the goal, so in the case of 1.3a you want to play a general in front of punchy, then one in the square above him, and hopefully with enough time a second one in that row to ensure he doesn't move upwards, then you want to place one on the next row down, and continue this process of locking off the lanes above him to force him downwards.

Just fired this up on my iPad 2 last night...but the graphics don't look right. It seems like no AA whatsoever, and looks to be over-pixelated. Are you guys using the retina version on the iPad 2? In that case I hope you change it because I won't be playing this until the graphics quality is improved on.

Thanks! I'll give this a shot tomorrow, and MS Paint is a perfect tool for geek illustrations!

First, thanks for the feedback. According to the programmers we are not using AA because we would have an unacceptable drop in framerate during large battles. However, we are going to make a special build today just to confirm this. Also, please keep in mind that we actually developed the game for the iPad2 initially and not the iPad 3 so we don't think that any issues are due to using the retina version. If you wouldn't mind, could you please post a screen capture of something you consider over-pixelated? We'd really appreciate that!

Well its good to see that the community of players are growing as this game is really good..btw mark,do you think my review is good??I need some feedback myself as im an aspiring game review writer hehe..

A question,can you replay every level that you clear or do you have to get 4 stars to unlock it for the level select section??The only levels i seem to go back are the tutorial levels..

My suggestion or wish would be an activated skill for a hero like/unique unit and some passive one,like some leadership bonus for adjacent units..unless its already in the game and I haven't seen them yet,hehe...this will give more flavor to the game I think..

Hello Mark,
just wonder, can we have AA enabled on at least Ipad 4th gen in future patch?
Its not that really needed, but if Ipad 4th gen have power to handle it, why not use it then

Ipad Air 2 sold! back to PC master race!
