Is anyone familar with this developer? TowerFight 2 looks very interesting but I will probably have to wait for a bug fix:

Note to iPhone 5 Users: There is currently a bug in which the iPhone 5 will not display the game properly in landscape orientation. We are patching in a fix and will have it released ASAP!

Game Impressions

In terms of content, presentation, character and originality, this is quite outstanding by iOS standards.

What lets the side down somewhat are the controls. Thankfully, not enough to seriously impact enjoyment, but there's no denying that they could be improved. Movement is rather floaty, and for mine the character lacks a little weight. Additionally my thumb would occasionally stray outside the input zone, causing the character to remain still when I was trying to initiate movement.

The right pad (basically the game is a dual stick shooter if that isn't obvious) suffers from some of the same issues as the left, and strangely does not allow for diagonal shooting. There may well be a reason for this restriction that becomes apparent later in the game, but early on it feels a bit odd.

Overall though, this is a title that immediately surprises you with its charm, and makes you feel progressively more and more embarrassed to be playing something this elaborate and accomplished for one dollar. There is no IAP.

I do hope the developers take another look at the controls, but as is I can still unreservedly recommend this.

Hey guys!

Thanks for the interest. I'm Sam, half of the butterscotch development team (Seth, my brother is the programming side). I'll address a few points of your feedback here!

"What lets the side down somewhat are the controls."
Touch screens are a MOTHER for dual thumbstick controls. We tweaked those puppies till we got as close as we thought we could, but it remains inhibited by the sleek glassiness of a touchscreen. We've actually already update the game on android with another controls fix that we've found helps quite a bit, as well as a few extra animations for Hardik (some head recoil, for instance). Those are in review by ye olde ios and will hopefully be to you guys shortly.

Iphone 5 issues:
We're two brothers who quit our jobs 3 months ago to make games full time, so our testing capabilities are AGGRAVATINGLY TINY. Last night at midnight Seth found out it gets stuck in Portrait view on iphone 5. He's fixed the problem and uploaded a fix in the upcoming patch, which will be there once apple gets their dose of coffee.

Hopefully today? Who knows!

"Worth it to download or wait for Wednesday night? Only got 99 cents left"
FREAKIN YES IT IS.

Thanks for the support guys. I'll be hanging around, we'll be doing a reddit ama later, and we'll be fielding whatever reviews (cross those beautiful fingers for us) come through today.

Here's a fun video that just came out.

Good to see active developers here! I will download this when I get to wifi 5G; landscape fix or no. It sounds like this will help satiate my dual stick shooter fix for a bit.

Holy crap you can embed things here.

Thanks for that. The iphone5 fix is in apple's hands, waiting for them to say "OH HEY IT WORKS" before those of you with lightsaber-sized screens can play it properly.

Knowing them, it sometimes takes 2 days...most times takes 6 days.

But the game is on sale for 99 cents instead of 2.99 for the first few days, so it may be a good early investment

there's also an sfx setting in the options which helps a bit with stuttering. You can cycle it to "low" which takes away blood, drops most particles out, etc. Not quite as pretty but more playable.

We'll be working on more optimization fixes as we get better acquainted with which devices have what problems, etc. Thanks for the note!

Insta-bought it - based on Gabrien's impressions - now waiting for the iPhone 5-fix!

And next time, my dear brothers, come to us first and ask a couple of guys here to Testflight your app.
This way, you can forget those bloody stupid glitches that slip through. AppStore reviewers can be beaches, especially at those things.

By the way, you want to win the price for touchArcade's funniest developer?
But nice to see you around, guys. We like that.

(PS: is Seth his real name?) o_0

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

@Vovin hell yes we'll come to you. We didn't realize you guys over here were so DAMNABLY FRIENDLY. We've got another game in the works that will probably make your socks explode. If that's the sort of thing you're into we'll post about it once it gets to a workable stage.

We only want to win that prize if it comes with a gift basket full of summer sausage and club crackers.

Seth is indeed his real name. Mine is Sam. DID THIS JUST GET TOO REAL?

Here's a picture of us taken yesterday that's up on our facebook page which you should probably slap your upward-facing thumb on.

Our third brother Adam (SO MUCH REALITY) informs us that we look drugged, but I assure you we are not.
