Haha, i like that description of yourself. When you give your impressions, can you compare it to other TD games? (Like FFCD, Fieldrunners, The Creeps!, etc)? I'd like to know how this stacks up

I've just been playing the demo (thanks Skathir). It's fun. Lots of detail, towers etc. The screenshots in iTunes don't tell you much though. Wondering if all the features are there from the computer version. Might just wait for the Lite version on this one...

Ok, now played a long run.
Not bad. I personally still prefere The Creeps and 7 Cities.
But also this game adds something new: the enemies attack your towers and you have to use your money wisely also to repair them. They have the same energy bar as the enemies. Further more, there are three different things you can level up until you reach a max for each tower: range, frequency of shots and damage power. The graphics are nice and detailed and you can smoothly zoom in and out by pinching. The music is nice and you can choose from different maps always playing an endless mode to get a new highscore. You also have 2 timer options. Normal and twice the speed, but I always played on fast forward, this option seems ideal.

Somehow this game lacks on personality, but this is just my opinion. I got the feeling, Creeps, Fieldrunners and 7 Cities deliver more "soul"... don't know how to describe.

But all in all a very good new TD game and a nice addition for all the TD suckers out there. Simply test the lite, when it's arriving next week.

I think you nailed it right there.
With those other TD games you mentioned, it had something exciting and original it brought to the table. Some style, pizzaz, or "soul" as you say.
This here just seems boring and non-appealing in comparison.
Not to say anything against the game play (I haven't tried it), but just based on screenshots, that was exactly my thoughts....meh.

If this was the only TD game, we'd be all over it, but thankfully, we have options now, and looks like better options in other games that deliver "style" along with game play.

Am curious, what were your thoughts on INKoming?

This game sort of reminds me of it, instead we have circuits instead of homework.

Am going to try this out in an hour or so. ^ ^

I didn't get it either. I don't like the way it looks.
