After this update, players will be able to choose from the original vertical play mode, allowing for one-handed control, or the new horizontal "full touch" mode in which players will be able to control the game via tapping and dragging.

This version update is sure to give a new feel to the already popular CRYSTAL DEFENDERS, and will be made available free of charge for those who have already downloaded the full application.

Yeah, although they didn't say anything about pinch zooming, etc.

And the full touchscreen is only in horizontal mode, 2 steps forward, 1 step back.

It's about time. I tried the lite version--it wasn't even worth dl'ing for free. I hope that the new one is better. I loved Tactics, so maybe Crystal Defenders will eventually be decent.

that was the main criticism. I hope they update graphics too to fill the screen. If so I will buy it.
