Matrix's comments:
A conspiracy throws our kingdom into the most dangerous moment, which needs you and your army to shoulder the responsibility of safeguarding the kingdom. The powerful enemy already launches the attack, which leaves you no choice as you are the last hope of the kingdom.
The particular fortress construction mode allows you to build the unique fortress of your own, which will bring you a strong sense of proud especially when seeing tens of thousands of enemies fall in front of your elaborate fortress. Feel free to build walls and fortresses, set up gatehouses, pits, barriers and towers and paint pitch on the ground to launch fire attack against your enemy. You can also build all kinds of buildings to boost your soldier's battle efficiency. The establishment of magic towers enables you to use magic. Arrow towers and round towers of different scale help you to form solid defensive line.
You can also have your archers shoot enemies on the wall…
With 22 types of military units and numerous styles of bosses, the game will impress you with rich and skillful playing methods, for example, upgrading your soldiers' level or building function all make your defensive line more strong. Weather your fortress can survive the surrounded enemies?
With the vast battlefield and splendid background music, you are sure to throw yourself into this war in the Middle Ages.

seems some of their games are very well done, and others are merely 'ok', hard to tell which one this will be, will wait for some reviews to steer me...

Comment that i found.

The games give you nearly no money and you really can't earn much based on the prices everything costs. The waves the Game sends are vastly larger than any force you can muster. It's almost as if they're FORCING you to buy coins for a game you already had to pay for.

damn, was afraid of that, so it either wants you to grind for cash like the other reviewer said, or is trying to force you to buy iap, either way, will let it sit in the wait list to get some credible feedback in itunes.

can you say whether it seems to focus on buying IAP or if it lets you replay/grind for gold?

It makes you replay a day if you fail, so you can fail intentionally to rack up cash. The game is saved after each day and if you don't survive a day you get to keep the cash and have to replay that day until you can beat it. Plus it saves any additions you added if you fail, so you can slowly rack up cash and rebuild at the same time if you plan right.
