Some solutions/workarounds to problems people have reported:

- The game is saved per Gamecenter account. If you find your save game isn't appearing, please log into the Gamecenter account you started the save game with. If you started the game without being signed in to Gamecenter, please sign out of Gamecenter to see your save game.

- If you find the game crashes, the most common problem is that there are too many active Apps in the background taking up all the memory on the device. Please remove the apps in the multitask bar, or completely turn off your device by holding the power button for 5 seconds and then restart it.

This looks pretty interesting, i dont think (may be wrong) you control the 'turtle', you control the different types of weapons, eg a bit of an angry bird shoot em up ? Does look very good though, another purchase tonight !

Looks very interesting. Gonna jump on this tonight. this game made me think of zombie soccer which until this day is one of my all time favorites. The art style is similar in the two games. Can't wait for this

Heres the preview video if you havent seen it already...


Has some gameplay in it, looks a clever type of game, different weapons to use, one with 'Angry Birds' angles you have to use but basically a shoot em up, clever idea. Sure you dont control the walking turtle but i reckon this one will be really good.
