Wow this looks really good. Will try the lite version 1st.

I tried it and it's okay... Graphics could be sharper though and the gameplay is your typical castle defense style with some micromanagement using the 'spells' to either attack or deflect attacks. I didn't see any upgrading mechanics but the full version could be better I don't know cos I tried the lite one. I recommend at least trying the lite first.

It is easy to make favorable comments. The game has nice graphics and sound and the first number of levels do a good job holding your hand. I don't play many strategy games, but I will keep playing this one.

Oh yeah, and a main character that is a little like Gandalf!

Thought I'd give the free version a try. I didn't really know what to expect. From the pictures, it looks like an Angry Birds clone. However, it's more like a real-time multitouch strategy game, and is nothing like Angry Birds. If i had to compare it to another game, I think it's more like BowQuest: Pandamania, except you're doing more than firing arrows. I like the game play. I'd like to check out the full version.

A couple of other comments. The fact that you have to exit the app to go to the "How to Play" page is kind of annoying. I would suggest integrating that into e game. Also, I had a crash the first time I lost a round. It was the fifth or sixth level where it's the first time you have attackers coming from both sides. It was probably a memory issue, though. I'm guessing a reset would fix it.

Since I just downloaded the game, it wouldn't let me review it, but I will when I get the chance.

Thank you for your response,

Regarding How to Play we do have a built-in tutorial. That one was meant to teach you how to play by using a video, however we are making a better tutorial video at the moment.

About the crash, I believe that one was indeed the memory issue on iPad, From the technical stand point it is possible to crash when memory hasn't got released by the garbage collector. It is likely to happen when you have too many applications running in the background. It's best to close them first.



Thank you, Slewiz7, Czarcastic for the response!

Oh btw did you know that the Rock spell is a rope physics? basically you touch and drag and you can even move it 360 degrees to block the projectiles?

Keep the comments coming!
