App description: Draelus has escaped from the Hollow Realm to threaten the world once more. Three young sorcerers must summon Spires to defend against his armies. Trained by their master Iaro in the art of Tower Defense, they are our last hope.

("Spires HD" is available with graphics designed for retina devices and iPads, plus additional exclusive content)

AN EPIC STORY OF MAGIC AND WAR!
Experience an intricate plot through dialog and professional Voice Acting. Discover your foe's true identity as you unlock your potential as a student of the Great University.

THREE PLAYABLE HEROES
Each student commands a different array of elemental Spires. Use each student's spires to form a battle plan to counter the oncoming hoards.

ENDLESS HOURS OF FUN
20 Levels, 11 Spires, 13 Enemy Types, 6 Usable Items and 3 Modes of Play! Find each enemy's weakness, and use each spire and item to its best potential.

STRATEGIC BATTLES
Create a maze so that your foes never reach their target, or force all of them to walk through a concentrated zone of destruction. The choices are endless!

CHALLENGE YOUR FRIENDS
Compare your score to your friends' on Apple Game Center. Can you last longer in Survival mode, or defeat more enemies in Gauntlet?

VIBRANT ENVIRONMENTS
Fully rendered environments with unique paths and enemy formations. Use each map's Magical Runes to enhance your Spires at strategic locations.

Spires is a Tower Defense game that pits you against a force of invaders bent on razing the land for a new order. The game is fun and easy to pick up. It is designed for new players and experienced strategists alike.

Play through Gauntlet and Survival mode to hone your skills. Challenge you friends to beat your high score. Endless strategies means endless fun!

Explore through Story mode and get to know the students: Adel, Tyran and Kali. Learn how to summon new spires from your master, Iaro. Fight back the mysterious woman assaulting your land, and if you're skilled enough, perhaps you will discover her true motives...

Eeeek! Another release! Ok, TOFFTed again.
That's game no. 5 I bought today...

(Puzzlevania, Cardboard Castle, Yoku-Gomi, Crystal Soul)

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Why is RPG in the title of this thread, I don't see any RPG elements in this game. Can you level up your character or something that is not mentioned in the decsription because the description just makes it sound like a straight TD game. Defender Chronicles I would consider a TD/RPG.

As a fan of RPGs I become concerned about the state of video gaming when I see games labelled as RPG for no apparent reason, this is happening at an ever increasing rate. Please help stop the pseudo-RPG horde by not purchasing any non-RPG "RPGs."

Seriously... Spires looks like it has potential, I'm interested in impressions (come on Vovin). Maybe developers mean that because there are knights and fantasy elements it's somehow role playing.

It is pretty much a good tower-defense game with a good story, visuals and many different towers. The controls are perfect. I am writing a review for this on mobiletechreview. So if you can wait a few hours, you will see my full impressions

Hmmmmm. I think going to have a look at this HD version they say is in approval. Strange though, I wonder if will that be a universal build of the game - we don't normally pay extra for just retinised games...I mean that's the spec of the current gen right??
