Wow this looks AMAZING. I have to have this. What's the catch Ubisoft? Online only? Power ups to win? Damn these free games making me second guess.

The catch seems to be an energy bar, though I haven't played too long so there could be more. It's a fairly nice puzzle/reverse Tower Defence a bit like Anomaly but it does feel freemium

Okay I gave it a try. Thanks Pete. I agree, the catch is the stupid energy bar. Figures...

However, I must say, 5 levels in, I do recommend it (at this point). Energy bar aside, the puzzle aspect seems fun. I haven't gotten to the tower defense battle part but it actually unique in the way that it's mixing a defending/attacking/puzzle game into one. I haven't hit the actually defending yet but the videos in game show me what's to come. I hope it's good. I'm only worried about unlocking and IAP. Some games do it worse than others.

Also I really enjoy the design A LOT. From a graphic design perspective, everything is great. Animations are wonderful, the UI is nice, the start game screen using the movement of the device, and the over world map. Everything looks beautiful. But the game itself will require more play.

Btw also take note that since it IS a puzzle game, one of the big problems is gonna be burning the energy bar really quickly. Quite clever of Ubisoft to develop a game like this to take advantage of that. I burned 8 bars in 5 minutes because of failing to understand missions. However if you are a mega puzzle genius, ignore my comment.

Ah I want to like this game but I may end up deleting it. Looks like it takes 27 minutes or something around there per energy bar. That's ridiculously long. Like.. I used to think 10-15 minutes was long, this is the first game I've played that has it this high. Maybe it was 30 minutes? I didn't check it immediately but wow.. if you're out of energy after play 5 minutes of screwing up a puzzle... well wait 30 minutes to try again ONE more time. Jeez.

Taking the other Ubisoft Mobile Open Beta Tests as a measure my guess would be in around four or five months so during the E3 2014 in June
