Thanks for the shout-out!

This should be on all the app stores now. This link should work for everyone, and take you to your local app store:

itunes.com/apps/ninjaraft

Glad you like the look of it! We're pretty excited, and also pretty exhausted.

Looks interesting

I'm wondering about the IAPs though since it's a paid game

EDIT

Well, i took the plunge seeing as it's so cheap

Lots of fun so far

just picked this up from the US App Store. I had to get it after looking at the video. I'll post when I get some gameplay in my belt.

If we could harvest human stupidity to run our electricity, and our cars, the world would see a new era of clean, renewable energy. That's an amazing resource we're wasting.

This is what happens when ninjas and pirates get-together and have babies.
A new twist on the tower defence concept. Hopefully updates will provide new raft pieces. 4/5
