Just a quick note to all the fans and players out there.

News and fix in this version:

- Some OpenGL2 shader were tuned for performance
- Performance on iPad3 now are exactly the same of iPad2
- Now the app falls back to openGL1 rendering on iPad 1st gen, making it run much faster!

2012 Orion Attack iPad(s) ® benchmark

We haves submitted 1.0.1 update, among the news, now iPad1 can play the game nicely, thanks to the fallback to openGL1 on this device only.
We tweaked some shader for performance.Now Retina Display iPad3 version is much faster/smoother.

Here the benchmark fun video. Enjoy!

I have bought the game, is awesome!

I will leave a 5 stars review. Here a longer version of my very personal review.

I have closed the first 3 levels, easily, kind of hard the level 3 but after some trials I solved it. Level 4 is funny, isn't that S.Peter square in Rome??

I have iPad 3 and I must say it's nice and fast, a really good 3d tower defense game.

I would love to play it in "endless" endurance mode, when you get into it, you are almost sad when finishing the level and you want to play it again!

I liked the overall feeling reminding me somehow Total Annihilation, a bit for the graphic, a bit for some sounds.

I loved the energy management addition, something new in TD games. I didn't like so much the cutscene before level4, But somehow got me curious about the whole story.

Why do they want the gold? I guess I will soon find out!
