Thanks so much for the quick find! I clicked buy so fast that if I got scammed I wouldn't have even realized it SO EXCITED. My favorite indie dev + one of my favorite genres.
Can you please share to us some impressions when you will play it? It is worth it? Is it like Kingdom Rush? Are IAPs necessary? Is it too hard?
Thanks!

There are a ton of currency IAPs. Didn’t seem to work right now for me but they get very large so I’m sure some are pricey. Hoping they aren’t needed but kind of scared me a bit. Also a video ad option to earn currency for free.

Edit: they’re now active and go all the way to $99. Really hope that isn’t a bad sign.

Two currencies, the ability to watch ads for more credits, it makes you wonder if this is balanced without the IAP. We've seen in the AppStore before supposedly premium games which play like F2P and these shenanigans don't instill much trust, especially in a strategy game where you don't know if you lost because your strategy was lacking or your units were underpowered as you didn't upgrade them enough by buying the IAP or grinding previous levels endlessly. I think I'll wait for more impressions and reviews.

If it was any other Dev I wouldn't be touching a five pound premium title with that kind of iap with a bargepole, but I'm still fairly tempted.

The kingdom rush games all had iap from what I remember, and I seem to recall some pretty expensive ones......

The Kingdom Rush games all had expensive iap which I'm not a fan of but it never stopped me in any of the games. As a fan of the games themselves, I ended up buying EVERY hero in all the Kingdom Rush games as they went on sale every now and then.

There's actually only one currency but the second currency is for army upgrades. I'm not sure how those are accumulated in this game but those are fairly normal in all the Kingdom Rush games. Nothing in the IAP is surprising in this game if you've played the other Kingdom Rush games.

Ahh I can't really stop praising this game enough. The animations keep blowing me away. Hard mode is a great difficulty giving me a good challenge.

One animation I really love is hero deployment. You can pick where you want them to deploy and it shoots a pod down to the ground. Just like my favorite ODSTs from Halo. (They should add a easter egg of them)

Speaking of easter eggs, there's a lot. Remember to tap on random things you find in the scenery. They do things when clicked. I found a captain Picard and some others already!

as other KR games before, iap for gems are only worth for use some "cheat" like freeze the whole map, or nuke,... in-match for some lazy people. I hope they still keep the paywall like that, if so, the game is worth every penny

I believe the same thing but we are still worried. At least you can change the difficulty. So, in easy mode perhaps you don't need to buy iaps.
