Cant wait for fieldrunners update

I have bought a lot of games for my iphone but fieldrunners is up there in the top 5. When I got the game I just couldnt put down my iphone and would end up using it till the battery died. I have beaten easy, medium and hard and now Im waiting for the added fieldrunners, sound effects and new maps. CANT WAIT!!

Any idea on a time frame till we get an update?

fieldrunners desperatly needs an update... i have no idea how its getting such high ratings... apparently 99% of ihpone users dont know what a good td is
i beat it on hard my 2nd try and now there is nothing left to do

fieldrunners as ok graphics but terrible gameplay.... ONLY 4 towers (only 3 actually b/c i dont foolishly waste money on missle towers)... thats terrible ... to go along with just 1 map

this is by far the most overrated game on earth.... i can tell most kids love it b/c its a "good feeling" to be owning" when there is not much to do

"ok graphics"? have you compared this td game's graphics with others on the app store?

if you go to fieldrunners in the app store it talks about the update, along with a future 2nd update.

Hey I'm no td expert, in fact I'm a noob, but I've never been *interested* in one before. So FR must be doing something right, because I love it!

LOL- I never played before untill I saw it on the app store... I played canyon defense and was sold... Unfortunately FR doesn't have nearly as many options (towers, maps, sound) as I would have liked. But it seems this update is going to address those issues and more!

Unfinished games seem to generate reviews that are all either overly positive or overly negative. Unlike other unfinished games, Fieldrunners didn't have any half-baked aspects of the game. The graphics are unique and polished, the UI is easy to use, and the game modes that are there are pretty entertaining.
Sound, variety (towers/maps/runners), and challenge (the learning curve is pretty small) wasn't complete, so the developer left those elements out entirely - with promises for future updates. Reviewers picked up on that and gave it high marks for what it had. I'm excited about the update because I know that whatever aspects they include, it'll be 100% done. Hopefully it'll be done soon
