Interesting, it's free and it shows no IAP on the appstore. Maybe it's part of the marketing to get some people to check it out at launch?

EDIT:

Just tried it. There is IAP to buy gold but it doesn't show in the app listing as having IAP (strange, I guess it uses another service or isn't fully implemented?). So far the game seems pretty well balanced but it's overall a td type game where instead of a tower you have a dude with some health limit and enemies come in waves from the right side of the screen. If this is a genre you love, I guess it's worth it... but overall this isn't one of my favorite genre at all so I could be misjudging it and it probably won't survive very long on my 4S.

Same programmers than http://www.appshopper.com/games/alone-at-war and http://www.appshopper.com/games/alone-at-war-2 ? Or is it a dirty illegal copy-and-paste clone ?

No idea, but the game icon on my iPhone has the number 3 on it.

Sadly after playing a level and sometimes right at the start of a level there's a full screen "More Games" advertisement. So be warned. Still I've put a little more time into it and at this moment the game is pretty well balanced. Even when I've died I had already gathered 1000+ gold so it was easy to fork out 100 gold for a revive (second revive is 200, third is 400). I was on level 12 when I died and the revive screen flickered onto the screen and was gone before I could continue. Kinda bit.

I may give it one more game. It does have a lot of achievements and in one game I managed to get 9 out of 25. But after that I may just delete and move on.

Yeah, it's 3rd chapter. Controls and gameplay mechanics were changed significantly. In addition, there's a lot of new content, including enemies, bosses, new types of weapons, the ability to build your watch tower and other cool features.

It's a free, ad-supported game.
