Beautiful background, very good music, smooth animations, I have to admit this game is very polished and that can be seen already at design of main menu.It is far from boring,there is ton of upgrades and one like random map generator are more than welcome, just amazing that we can actually buy that in a game
I will post more impressions after I get to higher levels, but first one is more than positive

As I said I would, I tried to test it out on my iPad 1. But... It's compatible with iOS 6 only and the iPad 1 supports only iOS 5.1.1. Too bad, I was really excited for this game. 😢

I'm really sorry about this I had an iPad3 and iPad Mini to test out the game, and it's already a bit too expensive for a free game, since I don't get any money out of it, but I enjoyed (almost) every minute of developing this game so it covers the costs already

Update

Version 1.0.1 has been submitted to AppStore and will be out in a few days

Changes:
  • Performance improvements
  • Fixed bug: Game didn't remember screen orientation on level load
  • Improved control layout and button size for single-player

I'd love to hear more feedback from people, since I actually do fix/improve things based on the feedback.
