Meh, the graphics aren't the best. But I do like how the enemy units will swarm your stations and try to find another route that is quicker. Has some interesting AI mechanics that actually make you think a little.

I've been playing this on iPad....I think it's awesome. The AI is great and I can see myself getting many hours of play here. Nice to have a high diffuculty option too and lots of maps. Graphics look good on iPad, lots more detail here than on my ipod.

Is it Tower Defense or something else altogether?

Any more impressions on this? Was just considering picking this up. Intrigued by the prospect of AI that does not simply go from A to B in a TD game.
