Really really enjoying this at the moment. Only thing I don't like is that the levels start to lag after about wave/round 65 on iPad 4. Crashed a couple of times because of it too. Would have expected to be able to play more rounds than that. Other than that a cracking addition to the Bloons catalogue.

This game is so amazing and beautiful and it runs great on my third gen iPad. There's just one little problem: iCloud support seems to be broken or bugged.

I believe that you have to survive for 50 waves.

Bloons TD 5 is definitely one of the best TD games I've played. Got it just last night for the iPad. Already one of my top 10 iOS GOTY. Guess there's a reason the game's so popular.
