IMG_0345Released in late 2008, The Creeps [App Store] is a classic tower defense game for the iPhone with a devoted group of fans who have stuck with the game and its various updates that were slowly released over 2009. With this latest update, it's clear that developers Super Squawk Software aren't giving up on the game anytime soon.

The recently released version 1.4 includes three map packs, purchasable via a 99¢ in-game transaction. Each DLC pack comes with six new levels, as well as new dinosaur-themed terrain and creeps. Two of the packs are fairly difficult and seem to be designed for veterans of The Creeps, the third variety pack is of "average" difficulty.

If you haven't had The Creeps on your phone recently, it's worth reinstalling to check out these new level packs, especially if you completed all the content in the previous updates. The new levels have definitely got me back in to the game, and judging from the response on our forums I'm not alone.

    Huge Creeps fan here. The new maps will definitely test your TD skill if you're going for the gold. Well done, Russell. ;)

    dunno, seems a bit much, $3 for 18 maps? that's pretty much like buying 2 other td games...

    i love creeps, don't get me wrong, just seems like a money grab to me. all 3 for 0.99 would be a no brainer though.

    Creeps! is my 2nd favorite iPhone game, so I'm really disappointed to see that, like other developers, they decided to go for the ridiculous DLC approach. That's not cool guys.

      its not ridiculous. you're ridiculously cheap. the devs spent probably months on getting these levels out. they need profit for their hard work. support them, dont be one of those idiots who think that everything should come free

    If you love the game, quit whining and start supporting the devs by buying DLC! Don't expect a lifetime free of updates by merely paying them $0.99, they're not your slaves!

    I think it's great, and if any dev deserves to reap the rewards of DLC it would be these guys. They've astonishingly been pumping a out free up-dates to keep their game fresh since it came out (with people praising their efforts), and I was beginning to wonder how they keep it all going. I have certainly got more than my moneys worth and happy to pay a little extra now. To almost quote the Dracula character 'It doesn't burn'; )

    Personally for the value I've got out of this game so far paying $0.99 for each pack for the developers time seems fair enough to me.

    There is tons of content in the original game and this is an optional extra. Any extra content costs the developer time and money and they can't be expected to keep doing it for free forever.

    Already downloaded the Dinosaur Danger pack and love it! Unlike others, I am more than happy to toss them a couple bucks for extra levels for how good their game is.
