A Classic Tower Defense Game, IOS Port

A must have for all tower defense fans, especially if you haven't played the original IPhone version. It's the exact same game, maybe a little too exact. There's been no improvements for the Mac, and one small problem. The game doesn't fill the whole screen when in full screen mode, it's an obvious port. Though, to be fair, the game does allow you to zoom in during gameplay, so that does help a little. It's still one of the classic tower defense games out there, and I haven't had any bugs after playing for a few days. 7 bucks may seem a little pricey, but the game does offer 8 maps with 7 game types for each map, and 3 difficulty settings, so there's hours of gameplay and replayability here.

Not nearly as good as the iOS version

I thought this version would be even better than the version on my iPad, but boy was I wrong. There is no map, so you can’t quickly see what you have and haven’t finished, you have to scroll through lists. The way the menus flow is not very intuitive, and I ended up having to post three identical high scores on the same board before I realized how it is set up. It is also very hard to get the screen to scroll or zoom in and out properly. It just feels like this was a hastily thrown together port from the iOS, and it has been a huge disappointment, especially after I liked my iPad version so very much. Wish I hadn’t wasted my money on this.

As much fun on the OSX as it is on iOS, but...

A couple of bizarre little bugs cost it a star. Amusingly, months after its release, these are not fixed. Nothing prevents play (so far) but it sure wouldbe nice to get these fixed, and the game deserves it.

After you get a high score, you can clear the dialog ad then resume and alakazam you have another high score equal to your just earned high score. Enter your name and fill the display!

If you select a tower by clicking and dragging, you get nothing (but it occasionally costs you the money). Do not click and drag.
