A funny aside. Today is 1 year from the day that Greyhound Games really became an entity when we released our first hit game Warlords. Since then I quit my job and became a full time app store developer.

Congratulations to your anniversary!

Hey, this sure looks good and I am also a TD addict.
It also seem to have quite some content.

Can you tell me more about the 7 different game modes?

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.

Looks interesting. Would you happen to have a gameplay vid so I could check it out?

Yes. Chapter 1. chapter 0 the prequel, and gemcraft labyrinth.

Gemcraft is the most popular tower defense game ever (of course that's open to debate) but Gemcraft at least in the flash version is amazing. I can't see the iPhone version being that much different.

Just check out armor games or kongregate. You can play gemcraft there to get a idea on how to play .... Or simply watch some YouTube videos.

I've played my fair share of TD games but never this one... it seems to me like more or less the same thing but with turrets being replaced by gems. Is there more to it than that?
