Soooo, another paidmium Tiny Tower clone?
Seriously, someone needs to do a premium version of this genre without IAP's or wait timers.

Love the art anyways.

EDIT: Developer has clarified that this will go free once it's been released worldwide, and is indeed a freemium game.
I'm glad that's been resolved, since usually when people buy a game they don't expect to have to keep paying.

The art looks good and the gameplay sounds good with having a little more to do on the game. But I have played many similar games and generally find no need for IAP on most. I'm hoping its optional here too.

Hi everyone,

Didn't know this thread was made already!

We just want to clarify a couple of things: the game is actually going to be Free when it's released worldwide on Thursday 3/14.

The $0.99 is just a temporary thing until we get the game out to all international market. So, it's not a "paidmium" game.

Another thing that folks might be asking are the build timers - we do have them, but they're *super* short (usually around 5-8 minutes). We didn't go nuts about it and ask you to wait for hours and a day just to build something.

While you're building room, floors, training/healing your units, etc, you can choose to go battle with the other teams in the Leagues. So there's always stuff for you to do instead of fiddling thumbs and stare at the clock timer .

We're super excited for the launch for Artlogic Games (the devs behind the huge Flash Epic War hits series) as this is their game and baby. We love working with them and hope players will enjoy the game.

Thanks!

Good to hear from you guys, so is the game finished or will you do updates for the game in the future? Also you said the price will go once its released worldwide, it'll be released in the UK in 2hours does that mean I have to wait or pay?

But regardless sounds good I'm definitely going to try it, too many games like this have nothing else to do and like you say have build timers for days on end! I love castles and medievil themes along with RPG. No idea how I'm going to chose my hero!

It's a normal thing, countless apps do various things always switching prices

Also can anyone help with hero choices? It says there are 6 but so far from videos I've seen I can only see 3 choices with the witch, archer and warrior.

So I suppose all the folks who don't read TA and might just see this game out in the app store early today and decide it looks cool enough to try, (been out in AU for over 6 hours now at 99c) can just go **** themselves, eh?
