Defender Chronicles for iPad

From the dev website:

DC iPad is a separate app. We have added some exclusive iPad only features.

Implemented so far:
- Game Center!
- New unit: Lizardman Sentinel - unlocked after Siria. Abilities: Blood Pact, Hate Undead, Poison Immunity.
- New unit: Paladin - unlock "Book of Wind" from Library; upgrade from Warrior; limit 1 per map. Abilities: Double Attack, Heal Potion.
- New unit: Marksman - unlock "Book of Fire" from Library; upgrade from Archer; limit 1 per map. Abilities: Fire Arrows.
- Bestiary has been updated to include the new 3 units.
- Enhancements from item may affect up to 2 unit types. This is so we don't need to introduce new prefix/suffix. The possible pairs are: Warriors & Paladins, Archers & Marksmen, Mages & Archmages, Halflings & Lizardmen. i.e. "Wicked" gives +poison attack to Archer's and Marksman's abilities.
- Embassy units have been adjusted to make them more useful.
- Max skill limit has been increased: 75 for rep 6.x; 100 for rep 7.x; 125 for rep 8.x; 150 for rep 9.x; 200 for rep >= 10.
- Item enhancement for Halflings have been increased, i.e. "Wonder" gives +8 attack rating instead of +5.
- More tokens per game.

Bonus for early adopters:
- Grand Helm is back for limited time at the Trade Shop!

Target release: Nov 2010.

That's the good news I have my fingers crossed for as well(including DC2 for iPhone/iTouch). :/

can't wait

I'll be getting this day one. I loved the iPhone version and always wanted more screen real estate, especially for the taller levels.
