    Hey,
    You guys were a big help with iFishing, I am going to ask for help again! I have never played a tower defense game, but they look fun. Should I get fieldrunners or a cheaper one? thanks

    Fieldrunners is definitely fun. It looks very good and plays well. My only gripe is that at present it's a little limited in terms of longevity, but there's an update that's close to completion that adds some new fieldrunners and a second map. And they have plans for future updates with new towers. Was certainly worth the purchase.

    Self Employed! Love being my own boss! This is the

    Solid!

    It's a nice game. Well worth the money and with the prospect of updates even the more so.

    Definitely get it. I played tower defense games before and didn't like them, but I loved Fieldrunners. There's an update coming very soon that will add sound, more maps, and more runners. The dev claims there's more on the way too, but he doesn't seem to want to give it away.

    It's a great game and it's perfectly suited for the iPhone of Touch.

    In fact I hoped that someone would create Warcraft 1 for the iPhone, because I wanted to make stuff with troops and look at them making war. Fieldrunners goes a bit into this direction, because you see tanks and cars and men driving or running along, you see shootings everywhere and rockets and helicopters and that's a lot of fun by just watching it!

    It makes fun to try out different strategies, especially on the hard level. Of course more different field runners would be nice and sound and different maps and more different towers etc etc etc. But - that's all coming!

    So go for it. It's cheap and some of the best games on the AppStore right now. While it's not a real RTS it's something which looks and feels great and just right on the iPhone.

    PS: Two things which they don't include:

    1. Blood, when someone gets killed.
    2. The screaming sounds of Cannon Fodder :D

    A new TD game just showed up called besiegement... It looks pretty decent.
    Go to miniclip.com and try the game canyon defense, gives you a good idea what TD games are about....
    As for fieldrunners I like it but it needs more upgrades for the towers

    If you want a highly polished cheap tower defense game I thoroughly recommend Mote-M, for only $0.99. It has a lot of strategic depth, good gameplay and is quite challenging. It's perfect for a 5-10 minute pick-up game.

    99 levels of a tower defense is not like 99 levels of obstacle games.... ure really telling me fieldrunner has solid gameplay when it has 4 towers and just 1 simple map? an average td should at least 20 towers.. not 4... and i dont even use missile towers so its actually only 3 towers ive used

    I've gotten to level 99 with a setup that more or less features a center line of tesla and goo towers, and then a maze around it.

    That's pretty much my strategy. I mix in a ton of missiles down the middle too. On hard mode, you either need more tesla towers than you can afford or a bunch of rockets. The rockets will hit runners when they're too far away from the tesla towers. The guys on the bikes will blow past the tesla towers on the upper levels, even with goo towers. I don't believe that other guy who said he doesn't used missiles.

    I agree with 1337brian. Pics or it didn't happen.

    its called why get missle towers when there are laser towers?!? b/c of splash? the splash is minor and doesnt make a difference... missle towers are pointless just get lazers in a maze with some goo

    Makes Sense, Sounds hard to implement though, can you post how to do this on the Field runner technique board? http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=527

    Thanks
