I used to enjoy this game on the iPod, and just tried this newer version. The game play doesn’t work as described in the tips so you fail, repeatedly. Example 1: “capture one invader at a time and build up your number of prisoners”. No, the game only lets you put one invader in the prison until it goes away. Example 2: “double tap the tent to train a prisoner to be an archer”. No, the game doesn’t seem to recognize double taps. Example 3: “slam invaders into catapults to destroy them”. While you can slam invaders to the ground this has no effect on machines.

Wow this is a great game... I played all the time. This came out in 2009! And the owner STILL cares about it. He just updated it for 64 but devices!
