Best in the KR series!


Finally, I bought the last one in the series, after, who knows, maybe two years? IMO, this is definitely the best of the whole series. Not only because it inherited the best part from its predecessors but also the dev put more fun elements into it. For example, you can now control you heroes not just where to go, but where and when to release their superpowers. Since every hero has his or her unique superpower, game experience is enriched to a new level. I’m a Hugh fan of previous series, but after playing Origins, I couldn’t go back to play them anymore.
I hope Ironhide doesn’t abandon this game and add some new maps.

Bug with purchased hero’s


I’ve always been a big fan of your games and love to support you by buying hero’s. However, whenever I try to download the heroes I have purchased on the normal version of the game, I am unable to get them. Please fix this so that I can use all the amazing hero’s you have created. Another issue I’m having is not being able to download game I created on the iPhone version of this game under the same Game Center ID. I hope you guys can fix this, and would mean the world to me if you noticed this. Thank you for all the fun you’ve provided me over the years.

This Game... IS AWESOME!!!!! 😀😀😀😀😀😀


Okay... this game is by far my favorite in the KR saga! The concept, storyline, gameplay, voice acting, and animation come together in this perfect game! This is a must-do for all TD gamers, like myself! When I first played this game, I didn’t know how good it would come out to be! By the way... when is KR 4 coming out? I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT LIKE CRAZY!!! This is by far among the best series of TD games, and it is absolutely incredible! I would HEAVILY recommend it!
