Rescue 60

Great game at a great price, I just got it. it has good controls, some of you may know a similar online version called bloons, if you like bloons, this is the same thing for your iphone/ipod touch.

I decided to take a chance on it. I think it's worth the asking price. Definitely a fun game. It has an end, but I think it will have some lasting value afterward as I'll want to go back and see if I can do better on levels I only just barely passed.

My only complaints are that the graphics are pretty bare-bones and the control scheme isn't perfect. The animation, like in their game Fire Drop, is of a low frame rate, and the graphics are a bit unpolished. Also the control scheme isn't perfect - the control does work well enough once you get use to it, but I still find my finger getting in the way as I aim. What might (and I emphasize "might") have worked better is to have the side areas aim, then let up and tap and slide again to set strength, rather then having aiming be in the middle of the screen. Or something like that.

There is "bloons" (the link I gave you) and then in ninjakiwi's website also has a game called "bloons tower defense" which I think is the one you are thinking og
