Undecided on Fieldrunners

Hey,
You guys were a big help with iFishing, I am going to ask for help again! I have never played a tower defense game, but they look fun. Should I get fieldrunners or a cheaper one? thanks

Fieldrunners is definitely fun. It looks very good and plays well. My only gripe is that at present it's a little limited in terms of longevity, but there's an update that's close to completion that adds some new fieldrunners and a second map. And they have plans for future updates with new towers. Was certainly worth the purchase.

Solid!

It's a nice game. Well worth the money and with the prospect of updates even the more so.

Definitely get it. I played tower defense games before and didn't like them, but I loved Fieldrunners. There's an update coming very soon that will add sound, more maps, and more runners. The dev claims there's more on the way too, but he doesn't seem to want to give it away.

It's a great game and it's perfectly suited for the iPhone of Touch.

In fact I hoped that someone would create Warcraft 1 for the iPhone, because I wanted to make stuff with troops and look at them making war. Fieldrunners goes a bit into this direction, because you see tanks and cars and men driving or running along, you see shootings everywhere and rockets and helicopters and that's a lot of fun by just watching it!

It makes fun to try out different strategies, especially on the hard level. Of course more different field runners would be nice and sound and different maps and more different towers etc etc etc. But - that's all coming!

So go for it. It's cheap and some of the best games on the AppStore right now. While it's not a real RTS it's something which looks and feels great and just right on the iPhone.

PS: Two things which they don't include:

1. Blood, when someone gets killed.
2. The screaming sounds of Cannon Fodder

A new TD game just showed up called besiegement... It looks pretty decent.
Go to miniclip.com and try the game canyon defense, gives you a good idea what TD games are about....
As for fieldrunners I like it but it needs more upgrades for the towers

Definitely a must have. Great graphics and the update looks awesome as well.
Also if you want to try out a tower defense game (to get the feel) try out mote-m $0.99 http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=287513265&mt=8
Both are great games and i recommend them both.

Let me get this straight. You played 99 lvls of a game you thought had horrible gameplay. LOL
