How are the controls for Star Defense?

I wasn't going to buy it before...but seeing a drop in price has gotten me interested. How are the controls? Is it easy to get around and place defenses?

It works seemlessly. You drag and drop towers onto parts of the planet, and you use your finger to swipe and navigate around. Pinching gestures zoom in and out. It's really easy to control, and I was fine with it at 5.99. 2.99 is a steal.

It may not bring a whole lot new to the table of fixed path TD games, but it does the genre right. Plus the 3D planet idea is just fun to work with. Makes things hectic at certain times.

Not to mention is has ngmoco's Plus+ networking, so you can challenge your friends and stuff.

The controls are great, controls just how you would expect spinning a 3D orb using a touch screen would work.

Also CRX's own.

Taken either 1999 or 2000:



Why did I ever sell this car

Cracked tail light, otherwise absolutely flawless.

Haha, good luck with that. They're all rusted out or have been destroyed by ricers with chameleon paint jobs and spoilers.

I'll take whatever...I'll fix it up the best I can. Heck I might even become a ricer.

I had a dumbass friend who wrecked his CRX into a electric pole. He was driving stupid drunk. What a waste.

The question is... Has Rolando & R2 Dropped too, did they release a R2 lite yet ?
