I Agree.

I had the chance to play Line Defense, I really like this game. It's a awesome take on the classic Missile Command.

There are powers ups (ie: slow down time, destroy all missiles, etc.). Plenty of souvenir's (35) to earn (ie: multiple combo hits, stopping missiles, drawing lines, etc.). Also an option to change the color of the line your draw.

Game plays great on my iPod touch (6th gen), running iOS 9.3.5. Great overall game that is very nicely put together with a good soundtrack.

Definitely will find a home on my device. Excellent job Legal Radiation Team.

Hopefully toucharcade reviews this on the main page because it deserves a lot of attention. I've never played a game like this one before. I've played games with one or two of the features but this has so much depth .
The upgrades are what I love the most.

Cool game from the little I've played so far. Only question right now is why aren't the achievements linked with GameCenter instead of being in game only?

That's my same question, I really like the game but why are there no Achievements, they are listed in the description but they are not on Gamecenter, that's the only minor thing I see.

Thank you for your feedback! We did not implement GC Achievements in the first version of the game because we had a release date to prevent. We are going to put them soon in the next update and for those who have already some of the achievements unlocked, they will automatically get transferred to GC! Hope the general game experience though rewards the player already

There achievements inside the game. They are called "souvenirs" to fit the whole concept. But not integrated with the Game Center. As explained above, we are on it.

Thank you!

Cracking and pretty unique game. Fairly high difficulty but playing a few rounds soon tempts you back for more. I played the beta and I'm happy to recommend it. Good luck to the Dev and let's all give it a try
