mzl.vhmpzijz.175x175-75Heads up: Firehose Games's tower defense title, Go Home Dinosaurs, is currently worming its way through international App Stores. It'll be available alongside a bunch of other brand new games around 11PM EST here in the states. As we've covered before, it will be launching at $4.99, which seems like a good deal for a pretty fleshed out game.

In case you've missed our pre-release post a couple of weeks back, here's a re-cap: Go Home is a pretty standard tower defense title with a couple of notable twists. For one, you don't just place turrets, you control an autonomous one that you can move around a level freely to cover any defensive gaps. For another, the level design sorta resembles a puzzle game's. Turrets are shaped like jigsaw pieces, basically, and you can only put them where they fit. Finding the perfect spacing and locking the right pieces into each other is an essential part of the late-level strategy.

All this, of course, is wrapped up in a cheery premise with whimsical visuals. We liked the game a lot after we busted out of the tutorial phase (which was way too easy). If you've been feening a new tower defense joint, this might be up your alley. Hit up our TA Plays and see if it clicks with you.

You can always follow your favorite games and add them to your Watch List on our app [Free], by the way. On nights like tonight it's pretty nice to get a notification whenever they release. Feel free to add Go Home Dinosaurs if it looks good to ya.

        devs don't stand a chance against us finicky consumers :)

    • MidianGTX

      Are you trying to inform the developers that people who don't own the hardware their game is available on won't be buying it? I've got a feeling they already know.

      • Flare_TM

        Good, then lets hope they make an iphone version since they know they have lots more potential customers that way

  • Eitan Glinert

    Hey Folks! Glad you're excited about the game. We'd love to make an iPhone version of the game down the line but unfortunately it's not in the cards for the time being as we're a pretty small studio. If you've got an iPad though you're gonna love it!

      I'm looking forward to playing it. I'm also looking forward to Apple releasing the second generation iPad mini with retina display so I can play Go Home Dinosaurs and some of the other iPad games I purchased when they were on sale, like the original PvZ.

      I'd love to like it, but it keeps crashing on my iPad3 with lates iOs - even some reboots didn't help... It keeps crashing after the loading screen... Not very pleased :-(

      • Eitan Glinert

        Hey Adrian! Can you please e-mail support@firehosegames.com with more information? The game should run without problems on the iPad 3. We'll help you get this figured out!

        Hmm... Look forward to more working reports.

      • Eitan Glinert

        Hey dkwo,

        If you are in an English speaking country the game should work fine. The problem seems to have to do with region settings (see the post above). We will have a fix out soon, in the meantime our workaround will let you play the game. Thanks for bearing with us!

        Hi Kai,

        Sorry, there is a bug now in the international version that we are working hard to fix. In the mean time here is a quick workaround until we can get an update live (which we are hoping to be able to do quite soon). The game has been pulled from the store temporarily in the regions affected until the bug is squashed. Again we apologize for any inconvenience and we want you to know the entire team is working on the solution!

        0) Completely exit out of the game (four finger slide up, hold GHD and 'x' it out)
        1) Enter Settings
        2) Select General from the left panel
        3) Select International
        4) Select Region Format
        5) Scroll to United States and relaunch the game
