My fave genre of games on iOS is definitely tower defense. Although followed very closely by collectible card games.

So, combining the two, with gorgeous graphics - I'm totally excited to grab this one! Well done, developers!

Pretty good game so far, those who liked man at arms should enjoy this. Tower variety is good and you can switch them out for missions depending on what enemies you up against and on some missions you get rewarded with a random card of 5 after they are shuffled with the option of spending silver to unlock more if you wish.

Seems there are also optional missions ranging from easy to hard for extra rewards and xp, I had a go of a hard mission and it was separated into 3 stages of waves [25/50/75] with a reward for each stage and not only that but if you fail you still get rewards depending on how far you got.
