Still the best TD! PLEASE update for iOS11!!!

It has such an original iPhone feel to it, still it's infinitely playable and enjoyable to this day. I'm saddened by the iOS 11 warnings saying that this game will stop working. Can you please please please recompile it!? Even if it's at the cost of a new game, re-release it as "Retro" or whatever.
Thank you very much for an enjoyable almost-decade of Madness Tower Defense.

2017 and still addictive

My favorite tower defense game I ever played. Been playing it for almost 7 years and still has that addictive charm. I recommend getting the flamethrower. You could even post your high score and beat the best daily score, weekly score, and monthly score. Highly recommend, easy to learn, easy to play!


Why? After nearly 8 years, why has no game come close to the greatness of Towermadness? Since my first iPod touch, this game has been on my home screen, and is opened frequently. Others have come and gone, but Towermadness has remained like a loyal friend. I still hold onto the hope that Limbic will update and add new content. But even if they do not... My faithfulness towards Towermadness will not bend nor waiver.
