Customer Reviews

Promising but ruined by IAP

I liked this tower defense game for the first few hours. The art and overall style is charming and the mechanics are somewhat unique (focused on optimal timing of weapon reloading), although the variety and strategy are somewhat limited. After about level 14, however, I started feeling like the game was tuned more to get money from me and not for fun. When the levels get harder, you can't realistically replay earlier levels for points to upgrade your weapons--you'll get about 100 points for replaying a level but it costs thousands to level up your weapons. Super-powered weapons are introduced early in the game but the special, consumable, energy required to use them is doled out so frugally that you could easily use it up just learning how to use the weapons and have none when you really need it. There is no way to earn more of that energy without real money. Of course, it would be fair to say the game is just too challenging for me, but nonetheless, it feels like a game that lost its purpose somewhere on the hunt for in-app purchases. I've played and loved (and given 5 star ratings to) brutally difficult games that were fun even though I could never make it past the first few levels. I've spent hours perfecting runs and completing games that I probably should have given up on because they were just out of my league--but they were just so awesome. This is not one of those games.

READ THIS Before getting this amazing app

This app is amazing! I completed all the levels in a little less then two days so it is a short game but the levels are all pretty challenging. If you actually want to beat the entire game then you need to get or complete all the levels and challenge levels get all the guns. If there were to be an update then please add some more levels. I highly recommend this game. It's great. It's hard to tell you all the good things about this game there just to many. If you get anything from this it should be GET THIS APP.

iaps ruin what would have been a great game

OK i guess they deleted my detailed review, so I'll just say instead, no more Chillingo games for me. it would have been one of the best tower defense games ever, but instead they decided to ruin it with the in app purchase system. Stupid unbeatable bonus levels that require you to spend money after the game is already over just leave a bad taste in your mouth. If they had left those levels out, it would've been a great game, but now I kind of don't like it anymore.
