Well at least there is a kind of symmetry.

Presumably would be better to allow selectable difficulty levels and simply unlock the higher option when you complete it on normal.

You seem to have missed the point. It's not that we don't want to be forced to play on easy mode, it's that we want the option to SELECT easy mode manually. In my case, it's to allow my 7-year old son to play what has become his new favorite/most hated game. New favorite because it is a true gem with tons of personality. Most hated because it's too difficult for him.

You can argue all you want about why you decided to implement the easy mode the way you did. What I would like to know, however, is why you can't also add it as a setting; ya know, the way the rest of the world does it.

We are gathering feedback and anything is possible, also a setting option. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We will inform about next update shortly.

Not sure how others feel about this but I have a suggestion with regard to balancing the tower types.

Basically, some towers like the red area damage one have a very short range and, if I remember right, do not increase range with level either. Now when this is combined with the fact that the paths can be quite wide and the route followed not immediately clear, it can be hard to predict where will be an effective place to position them. The relatively limited locations for towers can also force them quite a way back, so that they have no chance of covering a decent portion of the path and the enemies may waltz past out of range. I realise limiting range is a valid tactic for balancing in just about any game of this type, but in most you can at least be certain that a tower right next to the path will get a shot or two. Unless I am mistaken, this does not seem to be the case here, however.

So I would suggest that either the range increase in general, or at least with level. Even if at the expense of damage caused, though some are quite expensive already so a price increase would not be so welcome.

Thanks for listening. One last point on this topic...

Without an actual setting there is no way to know for sure if easy mode is enabled or not; nor is there a way to turn it off.

I regret my previous post's snippy tone, however. This game is an incredible value and has earned a place on the second screen of my iPad (no mean feat).

or have creeps always travel in the middle of the path, thus making exposures somewhat predictable.

Graphically, I really like how they scamper all over the path, though. It adds a great deal of personality to the game. My vote would be to increase the range of the towers rather than lose the game's organic. living feel.

Thank you guys for your suggestions and tips for game balance. Everything will be considered by dev team. Personally I agree, red cannon could have more range with the each upgrade.
