Yeah, it's funny how you suddenly stumble over you own game on the Appstore. Happens to people on a regular base. Well, amnesia seems to be a bad medical condition among iOS devs.

But it looks interesting. I'll check it.

SmartWoong, shill posts are highly frowned upon on the TA forums. There certainly isn't anything wrong with creating a thread for your own game and we highly encourage developer interaction around here, so saying you're the developer is a plus!

I've edited out the "shill"-like comments, turning your review into more of a description, but please for the future, don't try and fool any of the users by making it seem like you're a fan of the game...especially when you tell us the developer is your username. It'll only do you harm in the long-run.

The screen shots make it look interesting, and its free. Schilling is just counter-productive.

I hate schilling, but I'll try it now anyway.

Ok, spent 10 minutes with it and did 3 levels. Its a standard tower defense game with a somewhat cool look. You sort of have to try it, as the look is hard to describe -- basically the enemy UFO's have one of several looping attack paths. But apart from optics, I see nothing new here. The text is ridiculously tiny on iphone 5, and at least so far, it kind of has the feel of the those free tower defense games where *everything* is upgradeable but you cant afford to upgrade everything because they want you to have an incentive to buy IAP if you get stuck.

Probably worth a try, since the look is a little different. Its not drech, it just didnt move me.

There's a full game unlock for $2.99 it looks like. I don't know if there are more (edit: actually from the screenshot, it looks like you can buy units too...).

I'd be interested to know how it differs from this game:

Which was apparently just pulled after this new version was released.

right on - thank you...

Also curious about the differences between the pulled game... =o/

**edit**

yeah - going back to that thread - I totally forgot about this one - looks like I'm going to totally avoid this, as well as the developers future releases... shame...

Tower defense has become the same as the endless runner to me. It guarantees I won't bother reading the description; I'll just skip it. A shame if the are really unique, like (in the runner category) Bloodroofs.
