Customer Reviews

Potential is there, lacking basics

1. Lacks tower names and descriptions
2. Lacks a manual, website no help
3. Cannot see upgrade costs until you can afford it ;-( it gets worse
4. Tapping a tower to check status/upgrade disables the tower until tower is deselected.
5. Touch control is poorly implemented - often leading situations where you manage to tap your tower, perhaps even manage to upgrade it, then realize that tapping to deselect is failing...leaving your sorely needed tower upgrade disabled (see item 4).
6. DANGER: while this list is not comprehensive, these flaws alone may cause temporary insanity and endanger your phone should you at some point chuck it into the pavement.

--on the bright side, at least the people who made this game are too embarrassed to charge you for beta testing it....wait..........

Decent TD game, has interesting twist.

As TD games are one of my favorite genres I play most of them. This is a decent game but not up to fieldrunners standarsds. The offensive twist is nice to destroy the enemy hive. I do also like the building of the inexpensive walls.
However the game could definitely use a difficulty setting, maybe as simple as easy, med, hard. It would also be nice if the towers showed how far along they are in the upgrade tree.
If you like TD games then you could pick this one up as it is only 99 cents. Hopefully the dev will update to make tis game even better and it will get its forth and fifth star.

Use your rolling robots to win!

Another great title from MistWalker! Descriptions of tower functions and remaining cost to upgrade would be very useful, but you can learn these things. As said the rolling mecha make it different from most Tower Defense titles, and the graphics are unusually good.
