Looks like a really impressive arcade action game. Seems to be skill-based rather than IAP-driven... Are there any IAPs?

Great art style

Pretty cool game, you protect a tower shooting a gun and also a melee weapon. Creative use of 3d tower rotation.

Oh,I am gonna have to get this purely for the Lovecraftian inspired theme alone!
