SAGA Catapult ($1.99) Lite is out

Hey guys, I saw on the latest releases a 2 dollar game SAGA Catapult. Looks interesting, and almost like Archmage but forward looking. Since I was so dissapointed by Archmage, was wonderin if anyone got this game yet and if it's as good as it looks, or perhaps it's gonna just fade into obscurity. Anyhow that's all, this is my first thread.

edit: One thing to point out: it looks like it has decent graphics and lot of depth. I just tried the website, but it's not operational. This appears to be their first game, and they refer to it as an "epic action tactical shooter", and it has dragons, dwarves, dark elves, tanks, mech giants, and more do defend against wave after wave, with your "catapult". Ok, my thread is lame, but there it is doesn't seem to be much activity on TA the past day anyhow, so what can it hurt, right??

Great vid! I'm so glad you replied! Now I'm gonna check your youtube for all the game app vids LOL.

I noticed you're tilting the iPhone when launchin a boulder, I assume this is the "curve" the iTunes page talks about.
Looks kinda hard, but I'll prob get it later this week, or wait till the price goes to 99cents. I think it looks like a 99 cent app IMHO

If looks were everything, Zork would be the worst game in the history of video games.

That would be pretty sweet if someone made a graphical Zork.

A graphical Zork on the iPhone would be really cool. I just hope they do it more justice than the later graphical Zork adventures on the PC.

Anyhow that's all, this is my first thread, and sorry, I'm not sure how to make iTune links or I'd post it.

More of what I think is being termed a "Castle Defense" game I'd think...but then again since the enemies are attacking the town offscreen and not you directly...I guess an "Action" TD since you control the lone "tower"?
