Judging by the engrish used in the game and the description on the Appstore it has to be craptacular.

Dang it I'd buy it for a $1 for the engrish alone. splesh demage must be powerful. Who knows though Korean developer could put out a nice one. Doesn't look to hot though especially for $3.

Honestly, that means absolutely nothing.

News flash, English isn't everyone's first language.

Sometimes things get lost in translation or even improperly translated, ever hear of the Hiroshima bombing?

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

true. but then again if you cant get the instructions right, chances are it's craptastic

remember how much tomatoes 1112 and agharta got when the first version of 1112 was released full of spelling and grammar errors?

Still, ones ability to put instructions into English has nothing to do with game play. I do get what you mean though; if they can't put in the time to get that right, chances are they didn't put in the time in other areas. I just would never personally link the two, unless the developers first language is English.

1112 is a game that relies on language, where as Tower Defense doesn't (in most cases).

Did you have to change what I said to lowercase? o.O

Do some research on the Hiroshima bombing and it's causes, then you won't be confused anymore.

Hint: It has to do with translation the Japanese gave the Americans.

Hint 2: The Japanese word had more than one meaning.

Hint 3: The difference was between "give us a moment to think about your proposition (to surrender)" and "we decline your proposition (to surrender)". Which one do you think they gave us?


I suck at giving hints.
