Love this so far but it crashes a lot on my ipad2. Runs fine on my touch4 though.
Has anyone else had probs on their iPad with it??

It's run crash free for me on the iPad 1. Clearly the iPad 2 is just too much raw power, or something.

You know the questions they always ask in such cases?
1) Have you cleared out all other apps running in the background?
2) Did you reboot?
3) Is your device jail-broken (no finger pointing, it's just that some apps don't run well with the jail-broken stuff).

Hey LG thanks for the reply.

1) yessir, I'm one of those dorks who constantly clears the background apps
2) yessir!
3) not jb'd

The game runs, gets to the screen where I pick from the 3 play options. If I pick the first option it immediately crashes.
If I pick option 2 (train master?) it runs for a round or two then crashes.

Just a quick update..

Version 1.3 is out now. It includes a new Bunker defense level (with matching leaderboards), and some new enemies and some difficulty balancing.

Hope to submit 1.4 soon - which has a couple of new turrets - a shield generator which creates a defensive shield around nearby turrets/towers and an anti-missile defense turret.

Hey MadPuppet!

Please add local leaderboards to the game, at least the top score of each mode if not the top 5-10 scores.

I just completed an epic game in Bunker and it is either in some silly big delay before appearing on GC or was simply lost entirely in the ether with nothing to show for it!

For those curious, the Bunker mode is a hoot and a half.

In Bunker mode there is no Water Tower (so no free healing) and as opposed to ferrying passengers back and forth from one side to the other, your objective is to load them into the Bunker to act as little suicidal catapult fireballs (selfless little guys that they are). The Bunker Catapult is a mighty potent weapon, but as each shot is a passenger, you'll need to constantly keep its belly full if you want to count on its covering fire.

So far the game sounds like it is having difficulty on iPad 2s for some reason.

Well the update made it so I can at least play bunker mode without crashing. I've gotten a few games in now and am really loving this game. Love the graphical changes/update as well.

Still crashes when I try to play water tower mode. Sometimes immediately, sometimes after the game starts. (on ipad2 newest ios)
