So i had to chime in and congrat and most of all thank you very much for such a pleasant and entertaining experience.
Im really looking forward to what else this game and maybe future releases have in store.
Thanks, amusing Grace! We've been working on adding both new cards (like snowballs you can throw at enemies, similar to the fire), and also more things that can change for existing (and new) cards -- like you can get modifications now to increase the number of items you can "throw", or to increase the duration of things like stunning or fire. Hopefully it'll keep things interesting and make new combos for everyone!

We've finally gotten back on track for Man at Arms updates. As a heads-up, it includes both free stuff and new paid content stuff. In particular, it has:
* New towers (free)
* New abilities (free)
* "Ice Age" expansion pack (paid, probably $1.99), which will most likely include:
- About a dozen new levels in a snowy map theme
- New ice age monsters (mammoth, smilodons, etc.)
- New ice age towers and defenders

... along with the ever-present bug fixes and such.

For anyone who is interested, we'll try to use Apple's new beta-testing system to let existing players from these forums test out the new content and give us feedback. Anything you test there is obviously free, regardless of whether it has a price in the final version.

At least at the start, we'll be beta-testing only the iPad, so you'll need an iPad that's able to run Man at Arms. After that ... we haven't actually used the new Apple system yet, so we'll set things up and see what problems we encounter!
I should have subscribed to this thread the moment I signed up in TouchArcade. Practically the one reason I registered, and still decided not to land my first post here.

Good to know that the thread and the game is still on-going, though. Game's too good to be forgotten like that. I was a little worried about the lack of activity back then, around the time Tricket posted the layout of the new map.

I certainly missed a lot, but is it too late to sign up for Beta-Testing, at this point? ;~;

It is a good game and definitely worthy of more attention.

Nope, not too late -- I've just been on vacation the last few days, so I haven't been checking boards. Anyone interested, feel free to either e-mail me your e-mail address at tricket@gmail.com, or if you'd prefer send me a PM here. I'll use that to get you connected to the Apple beta test system.

I am late to the party as usual. I know it was a month ago but that guy on reddit is a douche nugget. Look at his post history and you can tell his main goal in life is to piss on people. I despise people like him as they are a cancer.

Man at Arms is one of my favorite ios games. Not just tower defense but all. And the time you spend with the community is icing on the cake. You are always a cool cat in my book. I am looking forward to the xpac. And hope to see something new down the line.

Shay

Thanks, Shay -- reading your post today just made my day. I have to admit that I haven't gone back to my Reddit page since then, just because it was all such a downer. I figure once we get this expansion finally out the door, I can go back and not worry about it as much. Anyway, knowing folks like you are out there *really* makes doing this worthwhile.

Meanwhile, expansion stuff finally getting closer! We have about 25 totally new cards now (most are available for free, and will show up with a snowflake icon; about 1/4 of those require purchasing the expansion pack). We've been testing about half a dozen new levels with new monsters, abilities, and towers. It's still rough, but it's getting there!

Tricket keep on chugging, being an iOS game dev is tough but you've already got a great game made. And look .. 79 pages on TA! Seriously, if you pass 30 pages, that means your game has struck up some attention / conversation.

As you keep working on this, I hope you work on some sequels in the future. It's a great concept that's too good to pass up just because of some losers complaining online.

Thanks, everyone. And you're right -- part of creating *anything* is withstanding folks throwing eggs, and I need to remember that.

One way or another, we'll keep making new wacky stuff as long as we can!
