So this is the game that got taken off the app store because it was a clone of 'Defend Your Castle', and this is the update that changed the graphics and made it different enough to put it back up for sale? Or was that a different game.

In any case, it looks really nice and for 59p i'm very tempted but might wait for some reviews first.

Fun game, but my thumb gets sore from flicking the stickmen out of the screen for 45 minutes.

This is an awesome game for 99c. I saw this morning that there was a new game on the US top 50 and picked it up right away. If you usually don't like this sort of game though, I wouldn't get it. I don't know how you couldn't like it though!

This game is really fun and I definitely recommend it. I've put hours into it already.

@Ph4ntom4: From what I hear this game was not pulled because it was a clone, but because the developer wanted to improve it before it got bad reviews.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

Is there a good video of this? I saw a video of Defend Your Castle and can't decide between them.

LOL, I have to admit, I thought it looked boring until I saw the blood. That made it seem so much more interesting for some reason.
