CRAP WEASELS!

This is a very fun game but, at the moment, it has a pretty critical bug that causes it to not only not allow you to login with Game Center, BUT doesn't save any of your progress (preferences, campaign progress, coins earned) once you exit the app!

I can testify that the quick fix does fix the save and GC issue I was experiencing (dev gave me a sneak peak of the patched build)!

The game is pretty fun. Sort of a line drawing Missile Command with a wide variety of levels each featuring a different mix of baddy missiles and your own missiles used to intercept them.

You simply draw a path from a stocked silo in a path to intercept an oncoming enemy missile. If you tap on the last missile launched it will forget its current path and blast off at a high speed in the last direction it was facing. Each enemy missile you knock out will give you coins which you can use to restock your silos or repair damaged silos. At the end of the mission you are awarded an amount of coins based on your performance in the mission that can be used to skip levels or pre-equip your next mission with some powerful power-ups (like instant repairs or a blast to clear every baddy from the screen).

The one thing I found a little confusing is how, while both called coins, the coins awarded at the end of a level are never actually used in-level and that at the start of each level you are simply assigned an amount of coins for use only in that level. So if you end a level with 2,000 in-game coins don't think those will carry over to the next level nor that in your next level you can simply make repairs using your vast 10,000 end of level awarded coin savings.

4/5

Got item being modified error earlier today and now it is regular price. Maybe you can be kind and leave it free this weekend. Would love to try it and give impressions. Looks pretty neat.

Finally got the game, I like the concept, didn't know if the line drawing was going to work before I got it, but it plays great and is a lot of fun. Just starting playing it but it is fun. Highly recommended!

I love the thrill of getting some massive 4 missile combo when you detonate one of his big nukes at the right moment and the tension, when restocking a silo, wondering if those missiles will be back online before it is too late!
