It looks to be heavily inspired by Kingdom Rush. I'll definitely wait for impressions on this one.

Anyways I agree this is a rip-off of Kingdom Rush so why play this when you can play the original instead?

You could say that about tons of games. Platform games in the 80's were all about getting objects and then finding the exit, most platform games now still are the same but with different levels/graphics/controls.

Same for MANY other games in the app store, many are inspired by previous games.

If you like Kingdom Rush i'm sure you'll like this one. The 'nazi' comment was a bit OTT

Because it might be better. This is generally how genres come into existence.

Being inspired by and being a complete rip-off are two totally different things imo. This doesn't look "kinda" like Kingdom Rush it looks EXACTLY like Kingdom Rush. If I liked Kingdom Rush (and I did) why wouldn't I play Kingdom Rush? Why would I play an inferior copy?

I don't understand what you are trying to say? Its not like Kingdom Rush was the first TD game? And no this isn't better I can guarantee you that.

This game was created from scratch, taking inspiration from another game. That's -exactly- how games evolve. No assets have been stolen and any similar gameplay mechanics have already been done in TD games, just as you said.

And no, you can't guarantee this isn't better. What a ridiculous thing to say.

Have you played both? If not then how can you say? And if you are REALLY not interested in the game are you in this thread just to troll? Josh only makes/develops quality games. I can guarantee you that.

Loving TD's I look forward to this tonight. Any thoughts as to which version to get? Looks like both are universal. Both look optimized for the larger screens as well. Is one retina?
