Best game ever!

I've been playing this game off and on for well over a year, and it's still fun to me. The game is a real challenge, and takes a lot of time and patience to master it. I've perfected every board, and perfected every board but 1 without using a thief. When I perfect that last board I guess my Crystal Defenders experience will finally be at an end :(
Hopefully Square will release new levels soon so that my experience never has to stop :)

Fun time waster

The visuals are great, just like the old FFTA game, but improved thanks to the HD remake.

There's no tutorial to better explain units, nor to explain how best to acquire gil to make it to the endgame. The method to acquire gil is a little counter-intuitive to me. Rather than suspending your Gil right away to upgrade units. You're expected to hoard all of it for the best score and rather than volume, quality units are the best choice.

Had I not looked online, I doubt I would ever have completed even the first map of the game.
In spite of my naysaying, I have had a blast playing this. A proper explanation would easily change my rating to 5 stars.

iOS 9 crashes

It works well until I tap on the first wave enemy's description, and it crashes. It happens every time in every world of the game! Maybe Crystal Defenders isn't supported on iOS 9? Please fix this!
