if you start your phone in safe mode it should work fine - its a pain to do it like that though

I just played the first level. It's different, but in a good way. Graphically it reminds me a lot of Pixeljunk Monsters on the PSN, but gameplay is almost more like a RTS. Your towers are basically soldiers (which we've seen before), but you have to give them targets by dragging a target from each of your units to the enemies. So far I like it, but it does seem like it could use some balancing (first level seemed a little hard, I played on normal difficulty - but I also wasted a bunch of money on a cannon which didn't help me too much).

yeah thats not going to fly,

well it crashed the first time
then clicked right back on it and it worked
so maybe we just have to do it twice right in a row?

Hi all

Thanks for starting this thread! I'm the developer for this, so please let me know if there are any issues or feature requests.

I plan to put out a few content updates as well in the coming weeks, while working on my next game.

Hope you guys enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions. I still need to send out promo codes for people who requested one in the 'Upcoming' thread and will do so soon; if you would still like one, please PM me. All I ask is that you at least consider writing a review

As for jail broken phones, I haven't done anything to intentionally disable them, so I'm not sure why it wouldn't work. How exactly does it fail? Are you unable to install at all, or does the game crash? If you send me a crash log, I can take a look.
