Wow! This sounds and looks fantastic! And I wouldn't say no to another tower defence game if it's well done. One thing though: Multiplayer! Please let this support some sort of co-op or versus play. Perhaps two or more players could help construct the defence together. That would be awesome!



Ickaser said:

Yeah, that would definitely be a great addition, especially with download play.



CaptainH said:

@ Imerion: Even better would one person builds the defences while the other sends the waves of monsters

Over a month since the announcement and no date set yet, wonder when this will be released?

If you wanna know if the game is good, den i would probably suggest it, because it just keeps me busy. Its intense, since if you take ur eye off after round 50 den ull probably loose a life. But there is no stopping like in fieldrunners. The graphics are pretty good and der are over 3 lvls with like 5 types of enemy routes dat u can unlock and a few achievements. I would give dis game a 8/10
