    Hi guys,

    Our newest mobile game, Gem Keeper, JUST got approved on the App Store, and goes live October 13, 2011! The folks over here at NCsoft and I wanted to say hi to everybody on the forums, and give you guys a sneak peak at the game first hand.

    Oh, did I mention the fact that PROMO CODES are involved?
    Reply to this thread, *show us your excitement* and five random applicants (the more enthusiastic the more likely!) will receive promo codes to enter the world of Gem Keeper.

    Gem Keeper™ challenges players to strategically place various towers and protect Gems, the source of great power, safely from the hands of gem-crazed monsters. Using a unique tower sliding system, players can move towers up and down rails to increase range and control attacks. But beware; this is not your typical place-and-observe tower defense game. Once the monsters can get your precious Gems, they evolve into boss monsters, gaining full strength along with the power to put towers to sleep as they run away. Place, upgrade, and slide towers wisely, and dare to achieve the Perfect Clear.

    With 14 unique towers, 30 thrill-powered stages, and breathtaking graphics, this pick-up-and-play title will test your gamer skills to the max. Be the first to get hold of this next big hit, and see if you can become the one and only legendary Gem Keeper.

    Features
    - 3 gorgeously crafted themes, 30 individual levels (x3 if you count the difficult settings)
    - 14 unique defense towers
    - 22 different enemies
    - Special Bombs to help get beyond those impossible levels

    Device Requirements
    - iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
    - Requires iOS 4.0 and up

    I have to say, from the screenshots, the game does look really nice. And I'm always up for a good tower defense game. I know it's less than a week until release, but might we get to see a gameplay video before then?

    Hopefully we should have a trailer ready for you guys before the game comes out! We're trying to feature as many details as we can- (there is simply too much awesomeness to capture) but when it's ready, you guys will be the first to know!

    YES it'll be different.

    That's what we're aiming for!

    We've tried to keep the essence of what a tower defense game should be like - keeping that satisfaction of lining up your towers perfectly and watching your enemies explode without even having a chance to reach their goal - while adding some extra challenges.

    For instance, we've added a rail system to keep your hands busy - towers placed on rail pods will have increased target range as you can slide them up and down, but at the same time, there are a limited number of pods, so you'll need to choose wisely. You can always place extra towers on the ground for support.

    Another thing that we've played around with are the enemies. They're a lot smarter than the enemies in previous TD games - you might not notice in the beginning stages, but you'll definitely notice once they start reaching for your precious gems. But I'm not going to get ahead of myself and spoil the fun for you guys.:)

    :eek: omg, omg, OMG!, THIS looks FAN-TAS-TIC! I AM SUCH a S.U.C.K.E.R. for NICE TOWER DEFENSE games, and again, THIS one SEEMS TO BE FANTASTIC (!!!)
    I LOVE the RICH, COLORFUL and DETAILED screenshots and I BET that the ANIMATIONS are even BETTER!
    This looks like it is in the same league with Sentinel III - or maybe it's even a lot more fun!
    Everything seems to fit, the design is just MARVELOUS... I've just fallen in love. :)

    Uhm... not that I'm not appreciating your opinion, but the style alone as well as the towers look completely different.
    Many TD look like each other, just sayin'...

    It's always the same... a TD shows up and at the same moment someone pops up with copycat complaints.

    You tugged at every single one of my game soft spots.

    TD - biggest folder on my iPod Touch and still some on my iPhone; biggest genre I own.

    Constant action? Phew, man do I hate watching a game play itself! So that line right there got me good!

    Variety of towers? Oh my - the choices and strategy that I see in my future! What towers will be best used to beat what level?

    Different worlds in Adventure Mode? A progression, not just "there you go, there are your levels now beat them" kind of game? How awesome is that?

    Perfect Clear? Are you kidding me? I stay stuck at levels of games that have that! I could be there until I was blue in the face trying like heck to attain that ranking!

    And as if that isn't enough - an endless mode.

    Holey baloney - would it help if I stood on my head spinning wooden nickels to convince you of my excitement for this unbelievably incredible looking game?

    Well I don't wanna spam... I'm very much excited, but I don' think I have to make a huge post saying omg omg omg when it's obvious that the game looks awesome and you'd be a fool to not like this. Just sayin. :)
