App description: GamesRadar named it "One of the Top Ten iOS games for November 2012!"

Slide to Play calls it a "Must Have" game
"Gorgeous presentation; fun; accessible gameplay; lots of levels" 4/4 Stars.

And how about from the fine folks at Apptudes?
"For those that enjoy the tower defense and road defense genre, March on Oz is a welcome addition to the fold. With an emphasis on graphics, music and storyline, and well-balanced RTS, March on Oz is definitely worth checking out." 4 Stars.

March On Oz is a RTS-style Road Defense game with more than a few twists. Combine action and strategy to defend the road of yellow bricks, defeat the N.O.M.E.S., and rescue Princess Ozma from the evil magic of RuggeDoh! and the Evil Alliance! Create your own adventurers with our "Adventurer Creator" and meet dozens of colorful characters as you journey through a very small part of the vast Worlds of Oz.

Lovingly crafted 3D graphics, effects, and animations bring this unique vision of L. Frank Baum's Oz to life. With over 50 levels and mini-games, adventurer creator, full musical score and sound effects, and dozens of achievements, March On Oz is sure to enchant and challenge you!

As you journey through three varied landscapes full of pink waterfalls, hot pool wading walls of fire and snowy landscapes you will have to fight for every bit of road in order to beat back the N.O.M.E. invasion and save Princess Ozma. No Flash or 2D graphics here, the N.O.M.E.S and Ozians have been fully rendered and animated in 3D along with great looking visual effects and animations. Our N.O.M.E.S. are not some cardboard-style bad guys, these little fellows are so much more than that! Keep your eyes on the road because you never know what is going to happen next with them.

Try to overcome easy, normal, and hard settings with each level of difficulty having been built to ensure a different playing experience. Challenging and Superstar levels coming soon with even more N.O.M.E.S. and Ozians!

Tired of bashing knights, killing zombies and other assorted traditional bad guys? See what our N.O.M.E.S. can do to brighten your day! We have skiing N.O.M.E.S., flying N.O.M.E.S., N.O.M.E.S. that can crush you with a single step and the irrepressible Happy Chainsaw and so many more. Towers are fun but N.O.M.E.S. and Ozians are so much more challenging and watch out for Big Foot N.O.M.E., he really does tower over you!

More than a dozen mini-games and many more to come! Try your luck against the N.O.M.E. invaders or capture flying angel food cake before it disappears or try to survive the waves of N.O.M.E.S. in Where Monkeys Dare!

More N.O.M.E.S., more Ozians, more levels and more levels of difficulty as well. And best of all, for owners of the paid version of March On Oz, these updates will be free of charge!

Come join the march and rescue Princess Ozma before RuggeDoh and the Evil Alliance can consolidate their hold on Oz and turn it into a place where only evil reigns supreme!

-- For owners of the iPad2 and newer iPads only--

I have been looking forward to this. I am only a few minutes into the introductory part of the game, but it is quite obvious a ton of love and sweat has been poured into it. The 3D graphics look really nice, although I wonder how well it will run on older iPads. I will post more impressions here later.

Thanks for the comments, we've got some super talented artists

The iPad3 should be the worst performance out of any of the iPads. We don't support iPad1, and in relation to the iPad3, the iPad2 has 1/4 the pixels to draw and the iPad4 has 2x the power.

EDIT: To clarify some confusion that this post caused, I'm not suggesting in any way that the game performs poorly on the iPad3. All of the iPads, with the exception of iPad1, run the game superbly. However for the purpose of 3D gaming, I was merely suggesting that the iPad2 and iPad4 would likely run the game better than the iPad3, which runs the game perfectly.
We've got some internal testing levels that are designed to push the iPad to it's limits, and with the right scene, the iPad2 can run better than the iPad3 because it has far fewer pixels to render.

The game play is a bit like tower defense. There are resources and various types of troops which you place. I am just now getting to the meat of the game. The game starts with a detailed tutorial and has plenty of hand holding. It also includes a nice interactive guide you can access anytime which describes the various troops, enemies, and formations and allows viewing all the character animations.

While it is way too early for me to tell whether the game play will grab me, it is well worth a buck just for the tremendous production values. Not only is the graphics great, but the music is outstanding too. This game should get more attention here from anyone who owns an iPad model.

Would have bought this during the sale on the offchance it works ok on the iPad 3 but not going to spend the full price on this given the dev himself says it performs worst on that machine. Shame because the screenshots look great.
