The link is sending me to Bug Heroes. I don't remember iTunes links usually doing this when a game isn't available yet.

Edit: Works now! Still can't get TR2 though.

Man, this is the sort of game I'm always looking for- fantasy RPG/strategy that's not cutesy or goofy. Looks awesome!! BOUGHT. ^__^

Is there any way to repair your keep? I can seem to repair my walls but not the keep

Correct - this was a design decision. We want the player to be focusing on avoiding damage to the Keep, rather than just prolonging a battle. We also wanted to prevent the scenario where all your walls are destroyed and you're just strafing around with your hero, healing you Keep while picking off enemies one by one.

You can upgrade your keep for more durability in between stages though.

I guess think of the Keep like the lawn mowers in PvZ?

Nope, once your keeps health goes, down that's it. It's always key to make sure your walls are always repaired, especially if they're wooden walls.

All the heroes can be very powerful I do agree that Knight is the easiest to use, but as long as you really focus on protecting and healing your units, while giving them his passive buffs, Paladin is quite good as well - also his buffs are really great with a Knight teammate in co-op.

Engineer also has quite a different play style (with his Craftsman ability you can really upgrade your walls and get towers for cheap - I often focus purely on artillery and towers at first before I build a single unit with him).

Actually the small blurbs and tidbits you get with each level do develop into an actual story as you progress... more like a history of whats happened I wonder if anyone will recognize what its similar to? But yeah, its definitely not a story centric game.
