Quite a backstory for a TD game. As I was reading it, I kept thinking "hmm, ok, but that doesn't match what I see in the images". Not that it's that long of a description, but it seems like 3x the length of any other TD backstory...

We had actually dropped the story from the Full version description some time ago, but I had forgot it was still in the Lite description given we originally submitted back in October. Gone now

No, this is the first Lite version, it has just taken a long time to get through approval, due to a Apple reviewer oversight during first review, then we pulled it to include 1.2 changes, then it was rejected due to the API issue and now finally approved. The game has been out a while now but the Lite version is out much later than we had planned.

Wasn't necessarily a bad thing, just unusual. Probably not necessary though for a mobile TD game.
