Hey Alex! Our playground has been taken over! Only you can help us take it back!

Prepare for an epic battle to defend your treehouse against those pesky kids from the next street over!

Playground Wars features:

• Gorgeous, detailed art and animation!

• 112 HAND CRAFTED levels spread out over 4 unique seasonal campaigns!

• 5 different weather conditions, 4 locations and night and day scenarios allow for an insane amount of variety!

• Take command of your hero Alex, and recruit 9 additional friends to take on the bully menace!

• Defend against a variety of enemy units, including 4 bosses before encountering the very special, epic final Mega Tank!

• Unlock unique and powerful PERKS to use in battle to gain a crucial advantage!

• Earn MARBLES and MEGA MARBLES to spend on over 400 upgrades! Level up your units, buy them armor, give them splash damage, increased movement and attack speed, and special offensive and defensive capabilities.

• An advantage system balances the units against each other - the big guys don't like getting wet, triker units fear the pikemen and, of course, the bosses don't know what to do about Alex!

• The weather and time of day system gives strength and weaknesses to your friends. The soakers are great in the cold, less effective in the rain. Your little toddlers cost more to recruit at night but love to play in the snow! Learn these affinities to plan the perfect strategy for each level!

• iCloud enabled!

• Original soundtrack comprising 5 epic songs accompanying detailed and thrilling sound effects!

• Finely tuned unit AI and combat mechanics!

Playground Wars is a highly accessible defense game with an underlying layer of depth that takes the genre to an unprecedented level! Will YOU answer the call and take back the playground? The battle is on - in PLAYGROUND WARS!

** Note for iPad 2 and iPad Mini users : Playground Wars is a complex, memory intensive game. Although we've tested the game heavily on all devices, you may need to close all other applications before playing in order to have the best possible experience with the game!
