Looks like a really interesting 3D tower defence.

I'd be more inclined to purchase this if the dev's previous games didn't have hundreds of price drops...

Well, you have your price drop right there
For 1, I will give it a shot, even with being tired of TDs a bit currently...

I'm not waiting for a price drop... I just hate when devs play the price fluctuation game

The 3D aspect adds some visual depth rarely found other TD games. Also, the ships' designs, flight paths and patterns add some impressive creative touches. This is looks very interesting. Bought!

Fully agree on that, I am not a fan of it either.

Game impression:
Not so good at first glance.
Graphics are ok, but nothing spectacular. Controls work okay as well.
3D is a nice addition, but needs some working on. E.g. fire radius of cannons is still shown as a 2D circle, not a 3D globe.

Gameplay is the problem: I am not exactly a newbie with TD games anymore, but I could not complete the first level in two tries - once on easy and normal each.
Waves take quite long, and there is no speedup button; so the first level takes like 15 minutes of boredom (first 10-15 waves are really easy), only to lose in the last 1 or 2 waves.

IAP is present, but not too intrusive. The prices for the extra commanders are a joke, though, adding up to a total of 17 US$ , 3x the game's full price. And I could not even figure out what your commander actually does.
Helpfile is almost non-existent.

Summary: Some potential, but in its current state I recommend avoiding it.

I'm a indi-developer of Saturn Ring.
Special Thanks for playing my game!
A new update version 1.1 is now on review of apple!
I think new update version available on 13-05-30.
We added speedup button!
Fire radius of cannon is now 3D!
Make some levels easier and more dynamic!
And so on...

Hi SmartWoong, nice to see the developer show up here!
The update sounds good, might give it a shot again once it is out.
