    Hey all -- hope you'll all join us online; the multiplayer is free to play! Just download it and start a game or join one that's already been opened. I am usually in the lobby from 1-4 PM EST (11-1 PST) daily.

    I downloaded it a couple days ago, it looks interesting and possibly very entertaining.

    But end-of-semester projects are kind of absorbing any game-time I could possibly have around now, so haven't had a chance to play.

    You aren't being ignored, though :D.

    Awesome. Looking forward to your feedback, kime!

    FYI, update 1.102 is now out -- lots of multiplayer fixes and improvements, and it also includes a fix for a resolution bug that a minority of iPhone users were experiencing.

    Played it and enjoyed it. Beat all the free levels except for the challenge level, which I had trouble surviving past the first wave haha.

    It's a very nice concept, the melding of attack and defense, and I've always been a big fan of tower building. I also enjoyed the whole idea of expanding your territory to capture new resources and slowly destroy enemy buildings.

    I had a bit of trouble with distinguishing between when to use certain things, specifically on the offense. I see that there was a blog post about that, though, so maybe I wasn't the only one?

    I didn't try multiplayer (no Internet access when I played), so I'll have to try that next time. Overall, I think this was well done though, :^:

    Fantastic -- thanks for the feedback, Kime!

    There are a few missions specifically designed to teach players the ins and outs of some of the offensive units, but the best thing to do is really to experiment with different combinations of units and see which ones are effective against which types of defenses.

    Thanks, Zenfar!

    As for the IAP/free model: we probably could have made more money if we'd gone with the full-on monetization model and provided in-game currency or something like that. Our feeling was that we really didn't want to nickel-and-dime people for endless in-app purchases and make them feel like they were being extorted. That may have been the "right thing to do" from an ethical perspective, though not from a business perspective.

    There's still the option of adding more IAPs later on down the road (say, additional missions or mission packs), but we haven't made a decision on that yet.

    We will eventually drop the price on the full-game unlock to $3.99 as well.

    We're finalizing the Android version right now, and we're planning to make that a free download supported by in-game advertising (and no IAP).
