FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME

WHAT IN TARNATION IS THIS GAME?
Trouble in Tin Town is a strategy game with wind-up toys your mom would never have approved of. The game features three campaigns where you take charge of a toy army and battle other toys in the context of hilarious stories of a quality not seen any where else on the app store.

Each unique toy has special attacks that can be upgraded with coins earned during play. New characters become unlocked as levels are completed.

Special items are found throughout the game such as treasure chests for extra coins and hazards that can be used for strategy such as bee trees, alligator bridges and giant squid.

A new brand of fun and humor is in town bringing turn-based strategy to the masses!

What people are saying:

Its clear from the word 'go' that developer Jovian Minds has paid a lot of attention to environment and atmosphere. Menus and units look as though they've been taken from a wind-up toy set, and the witty mid-battle dialogue gently mocks each toy's real-life counterpart. - PocketGamer

There are currently three different campaigns to complete, each with their own set of unique wind-up toys and environments to enjoy. The game is also highlighted by clever dialogue exchanges that are in keeping with the toys and characters they represent, resulting in a fun storyline that's enjoyable from start to finish. - AppSpy

We look forward to whatever updates are coming down the pipeline, as Trouble in Tin Town has the potential to be one of the best strategy games on the App Store. - SlideToPlay

This game looks really interesting. Quirky, to say the least, but very, very inventive in its storyline. I'm curious to see a gameplay video, and I'm certainly putting this high atop my wishlist !

Congrats on the release and good luck with sales !

It's on the top of my list, but no video = no sale.

Developers wh can't get their heads around this seem pretty damn obtuse.

bought it, will play some later.
But, when you look in the Itouch section, there are some reviews for this game.

We are working on the video.

The video is coming soon. We were not happy with earlier screen captures and have reworked it. I'll be sure and post a link here when it is ready.

I would love to hear some feedback from anyone that is playing it.

A gameplay video could do the trick but if the gameplay of your game is good then a demo is perfect but at game release.

Too late for a demo it's too late even if the game is bind to last in App Store. The problem is the reviews and users reviews will already do the job then and if not your game will be forgotten by most and a too late demo will hardly wake up curiosity or any player.

I am looking forward to seeing that gameplay video. Hopefully the video will be a hands on gameplay video and not a trailer so we can get a feel for the controls.

Any chance of releasing a lite version?

Just downloaded this tonight - couldn't resist the whole concept; it's just too cool. I'll report back when I've had time to play.

Looking forward to chopping a few enemies to bits as old Abe !
