Where is Garden War?

Hey ..I was looking around on my old 1st Gen Iphone that now I use like a Ipod Touch , well I had Garden War (free) on it. So I played a couple of levels and it's a nice Tower Defense. So I pulled out the 3G Iphone and did a App Store search and it could not be found. What Happen? Where did it go?...Did it do so bad they pulled it?... I'm not talking about Garden Wars...but Garden War

It was removed from the app store due to copying of sounds.

"Sorry, we had to have it removed off of the app store. The copied sounds were enough reason to have apple pull it.

Hopefully PC users will try out garden defense. There is a great free one hour trial, and the full version is available for a great price. It works perfectly on paralells in OSX, but a native version is not available, atleast not yet.

Have a great day! "

The flap did have one positive effect though: it caused me to go buy Garden Defense! (I bought it from Amazon, which seemed to have the best price.)

Not only is it adorable as all get-out, it's a great TD game (although I admit the game gets too easy once you have super-everything unlocked). A lot of innovative features, like moving towers, growing towers, and counter-creeps that I haven't seen in any of the TD games for the iPhone. And who doesn't love garden gnomes with rocket launchers under their pointy hats?

Personally, I would LOVE to see a port of Garden Defense to the iPhone.

From the description, Garden War wasn't just a stylistic rip off, but it was a rip-off that didn't include any of the really interesting features of the original.
