I like the look of this game - kinda makes me wish I had an ipad. Can't find any videos of it though, which are really needed since the description doesn't really indicate what type of game it is. Seems like it might be a castle defense type, but not sure.

A video would surely help the decision. Looks good. Just need to know what gameplay is like.

I agree. It could be anything ... my guess is that we have a tower in the centre and need to shoot at whatever moves ....

Disclaimer .... I played only two levels during my lunch break.

The game is what I expected it to be. In each screen or scenario, we sit in a specific position and kill all aliens that come at us. The scenarios are linked with a story ... a cheesy one, but seems decently cheesy so far.
Killing is done by tapping and we have a variety of weapons, bullets, upgradable shields, etc. Of course we are limited in what we equip and each upgrade or item requires some (game) money (or experience points) and they get unlocked only when we pass a certain level.

There are 16 levels ... the first two are easy ... but I have to admit level 2 was slighter less easy than I expected.

Graphics is nice ... but here and there text is small (still readable on a ipad).
Sound gets repetitive very fast (I mean the music).

I did not experience any crash.

Now back to work, I will play some more later.

I had to look it up .... you can say it is tesla wars with a decent story and more variety in enemies and scenarios. So far I did not regret buying it .... my main complain would be that it has only 16 levels and no survival mode.
