App description: Get ready to test your skills in the gauntlet. GauntletTD adds some new twists to a genre everyone knows and loves, Tower Defense.

Pick from 8 unique maps - 4 open field & 4 scenario based - and start building your masterpiece. You have 4 tower types at your disposal, but these aren't your ordinary towers!

With 4 special abilities per tower there are now 16 new ways to stop the enemy in their tracks!

The only question left is, how long can you last in the gauntlet!?

well, i'd say its rough right now. no sound in the game, effects or music (other games are playing sounds, so i'm guessing its not my itouch).

animations are limited, but they are at least fluid, so no herky/jerky stuff (hate that in many games).

i like the concept of having different upgrade paths, and having only 5 upgrades possible for a tower, but being given two paths of 5 to pick between.

no real documentation in the game, refers to the game's website to get detailed help. so will need to do that to understand what the various icons/upgrade options mean

overall it doesn't seem like its quite ready, and yet feels like it shouldn't take much effort at this point to get finished.

i have a bad feeling its going to get bad reviews for its current state and perhaps the dev will get dejected from working on it further.... hopefully not.

Hello, I'm the developer of GauntletTD.

I saw the link to this site in your review and I wanted to sign up to thank you for reviewing my game and letting me know what I should fix

The in-game help menu was definitely one of the bigger problems I had when releasing the game, I had a much more verbose one but it was very cluttered and very unusable but I will fix that asap. I also plan on adding in some kind of popup info box for the abilities inside of the tower upgrade screens so its much easier to decide what abilities to use.

Thanks again for the feedback
