    Looks like this one just released for a sale price of $2.99, normally $4.99. Bright and colorful looking. Appears to have a nice budget behind it. Curious to hear thoughts from anyone who has taken the early plunge on this one? The Creeps was another recent colorful fun TD Game. I am hoping this one is of the same quality.

    Thank you,

    Sorry? No. It is a recent release listed in the, "New Games" section.

    ...ok, I found it. Hmmm, I will pass on this one I think. Bit busy with Geodefense right now:)

    Sometimes when searching in iTunes it will come up with nothing if you put a space in between the words. A link next time would be helpful. Oh...I nearly forgot.....welcome to TA:D

    Looks polished from the screenshots. I can see they tried a fieldrunners type method for tower placement.

    I am going to take the plunge on this one. If no one else has given their thoughts on the game, I will post up my mini-review tonight.

    I'm interested in your thoughts as well - please post again after you get a chance to check it out. The art style sure looks familliar - does seem to have a very Field Runners style. Do the towers animate? Is there a visual change to the towers as they are upgraded? Difficulty? Thanks.

    Nice peek, thanks for tracking down the vid. My feed was a little bit gltchy & it made it tough to tell about the frame rate on this one - laggyness will kill a good TD. I did like the 50's vibe to the music, though. AND - you can tell that sound has already been implemented. Still, I'll wait for a bit more detailed info. Thanks again!!

    UPDATE - was reading the app store description & they mentioned a lite version with three levels. I'm waiting for a demo - just hope it shows up before the app increases to $4.99. ;)

    Ah this reminds me of Garden Defense - one of my fav TD games on the PC.

    From the screenshots, it looks like the towers are different (though they still have flowers and gadgets at the same time). The colors, the grass, the path are very similar - but the UI is different. And I know that level in one of the screenshots from Garden Defense.

    Garden Defense is a great game - if this is anything like it, it's probably great as well. I hope they didn't "copy" it though - I'd feel bad for the devs of Garden Defense.

    Wow, looks they they copied Fieldrunners completely with the weapons.
    BUT I think I will have to check this game out anyway and post my review on Youtube.

    Ah, memories. ^ ^

    Am going to watch this one for a little before purchasing.

    Watching the YouTube.. I can tell that the trumpet blowing is going to be annoying.

    just watched the youtube demo of this....
    looks nice! good graphics, great idea for a TD game...but....
    there is one huge problem...
    why oh why that trumpet fanfare evertime a string of bugs comes out???
    this would drive me mad, which means i would turn off the sound always.....which kind of sucks...it really puts me on the fence about purchasing...more to the probably not purchase side..
