Yeah, I was thinking the same. Looks interesting, and I like the artwork.
Devs really need to learn to release videos with their games.

I played the crap out of Defender Chronicles, but part of it was the polish that they gave to it. If this doesn't suck, it may be fun.

This actually looks like a game similar to Square Enix's My Life As a Darklord, which was an awesome defense game.

Well from looking at the Facebook page and app store screenshots, this definitely looks similar to Defender Chronicles except without the awesome RPG elements.

The game is pretty straight forward. You place minions in your castle, and wait for them to kill the knights. There isn't an options menu or anything, just a start page, level select map, and credits page. The game starts you off with a brief introduction, and it also introduces new minions as you unlock them. Plays just like My Life As A Darklord, you place minions in a spot and they defend that spot as invading knights enter on different floors to get to Dracula's orb thing.

Ugh, sorry to say, but that is a terribly written review. I can't understand half of what's written. Seems like the author wrote it in his native language, then translated it using Google translate.
