[NCsoft] Gem Keeper - Oct 13, 2011.

Hi guys,

Our newest mobile game, Gem Keeper, JUST got approved on the App Store, and goes live October 13, 2011! The folks over here at NCsoft and I wanted to say hi to everybody on the forums, and give you guys a sneak peak at the game first hand.



Oh, did I mention the fact that PROMO CODES are involved?
Reply to this thread, *show us your excitement* and five random applicants (the more enthusiastic the more likely!) will receive promo codes to enter the world of Gem Keeper.

Gem Keeper™ challenges players to strategically place various towers and protect Gems, the source of great power, safely from the hands of gem-crazed monsters. Using a unique tower sliding system, players can move towers up and down rails to increase range and control attacks. But beware; this is not your typical place-and-observe tower defense game. Once the monsters can get your precious Gems, they evolve into boss monsters, gaining full strength along with the power to put towers to sleep as they run away. Place, upgrade, and slide towers wisely, and dare to achieve the Perfect Clear.

With 14 unique towers, 30 thrill-powered stages, and breathtaking graphics, this pick-up-and-play title will test your gamer skills to the max. Be the first to get hold of this next big hit, and see if you can become the one and only legendary Gem Keeper.

Features
- 3 gorgeously crafted themes, 30 individual levels (x3 if you count the difficult settings)
- 14 unique defense towers
- 22 different enemies
- Special Bombs to help get beyond those impossible levels

Device Requirements
- iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
- Requires iOS 4.0 and up

I have to say, from the screenshots, the game does look really nice. And I'm always up for a good tower defense game. I know it's less than a week until release, but might we get to see a gameplay video before then?

Hopefully we should have a trailer ready for you guys before the game comes out! We're trying to feature as many details as we can- (there is simply too much awesomeness to capture) but when it's ready, you guys will be the first to know!

That's what we're aiming for!

We've tried to keep the essence of what a tower defense game should be like - keeping that satisfaction of lining up your towers perfectly and watching your enemies explode without even having a chance to reach their goal - while adding some extra challenges.

For instance, we've added a rail system to keep your hands busy - towers placed on rail pods will have increased target range as you can slide them up and down, but at the same time, there are a limited number of pods, so you'll need to choose wisely. You can always place extra towers on the ground for support.

Another thing that we've played around with are the enemies. They're a lot smarter than the enemies in previous TD games - you might not notice in the beginning stages, but you'll definitely notice once they start reaching for your precious gems. But I'm not going to get ahead of myself and spoil the fun for you guys.

omg, omg, OMG!, THIS looks FAN-TAS-TIC! I AM SUCH a S.U.C.K.E.R. for NICE TOWER DEFENSE games, and again, THIS one SEEMS TO BE FANTASTIC (!!!)
I LOVE the RICH, COLORFUL and DETAILED screenshots and I BET that the ANIMATIONS are even BETTER!
This looks like it is in the same league with Sentinel III - or maybe it's even a lot more fun!
Everything seems to fit, the design is just MARVELOUS... I've just fallen in love.
