ReKillers (Fossil Software) $1.99 - Free

Any impressions?

Iphone only which is too bad cause it is a pretty decent game.

Excellent iphone only graphics, looks pretty good even in 2x mode.

I would describe this as a zombie tower defense game.

You are in a house, you have different people that defend it against Zombies.

Definitely worth a look, especially for iphone folk, even for ipad users too.

Wow, price dropped to free in 3 days, EP? Gotta wonder why alot of these apps don't just release for 99 cents.

Lots of IAP here. I think this may be a freemium in disguise. But I haven't fully researched it. Locked in a license just incase my instincts are wrong.

That wouldn't surprise me especially after dropping so quickly. Would play farther but rarely ever play iphone only games. Worth a look though.

A lot of IAP, and I've bought two of them because of the devs.

But are they necessary? I played the first night and am actually pretty impressed. It's a nice variation on the TD formula and is well polished.

I think if I continue to enjoy, I'd throw the devs an IAP bone myself to support them. But am curious to see how balanced the game is as far as pushing them on you. The description says they're optional and not required to finish the game. We'll see.

They are great. I don't think more while buying it, but they help me more.

OK so I was able to play it even though it says it's not compatible with iPhone 4 and it's a OK game. Agree it's a bit heavy on the IAP but overall worth a look for free. The reviews in the App Store are 5 stars from when the game was $1.99 so I'm a bit suspicious there.

Definitely a tower defense game but somewhat unique I suppose.

I meant to mention this as I noticed too but then got distracted by the IAP. And also to think someone had to buy all that for it to show in the top IAP section.

Still for free, no harm no foul. Still, might wanna go in expecting a freemium game and feel good if its not geared that direction.
