5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging and fun October 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is different and challenging. A bit of a spin on a defense game. Think of it like Plants vs Zombies but you have one shooter that can go around and participate. This can get pretty creative when you've got a lot of waves hitting you at once. It worked without any glitches on my Galaxy S3 and I found myself enjoying it for quite some time. I would say it is even worth the two dollars they are asking for if this is the type of game you enjoy. If you didn't enjoy PvZ then this should probably be avoided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting spin on a defense game December 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
Interesting spin on a defense game. Enemies come from the top, you build defense on the bottom to keep them out. You also have your sorcerer-like character who can shoot the enemies, in addition to building defenses.

The game shares similarities to Plants vs. Zombies with a couple differences. One is the aforementioned sorcerer-like character who can shoot the enemies directly. The other main difference is the fact that the defenses are only up for a limited amount of time before they disappear again. This can be frustrating until you develop a sufficient strategy.

Still, the game is fun and provides a challenge for several hours (don't remember how long it took me to beat it completely, but it was over the course of several days, at least).

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, both too easy and too hard October 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Not the most original defense game, but original enough. Except that many of the spells aren't as useful as others, and there's not that much variety, so it's not as deep and involving a game as say Plants vs. Zombies. The cut scenes are pretty funny, though. My biggest complaint is the difficulty. Most of the levels are fairly easy, and for an experienced gamer like me on normal difficulty I could get 5 stars in 1 or 2 tries. But when I reached the second to last level, all of a sudden it got RIDICULOUSLY hard... like unbearable. Now I don't mind a challenge, but when a level is suddenly 5 times longer than the previous one, with an unbearable number of enemies, and there's no more upgrades to purchase to help out, it's just frustrating. In light of the humor of the cut scenes, I'm guessing it's just a bad joke. The game keeps you interested and strings you along until it becomes just about unwinnable. I mean this level just keeps on going, and there's an unannounced boss, and AFTER the boss the level just keeps going! In short, this game is fun enough when free, but I don't think it'd be worth paying for.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good game October 3, 2012
By smich
Verified Purchase
I must say this is the best app of the day I've seen in months. I just finished the game (beat it). I loved it. was hooked from the start. the app icon looks like one of those stupid foreign apps but it is not at all. FYI I did not see any bugs as mentioned in previous post. half of the 9 year old kids posting, think they know what a bug is. I however am a software developer and what they claim to be a bug is merely a "request" of what they would like to see. someone knocked off stars because it isn't a 'quick time waster' app?! what a joke people. this app was fun, no in app purchases which I hate with a passion. no ads. and as far as I can tell, no viruses (spyware, adware) which is cleverly disguised these days as "data mining".

5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun change of pace October 3, 2012
By JG

This is like a more action packed version of plants vs zombies. You can shoot at the monsters and lay turrets in your lane. It's a good thing. Really fun gameplay, nice graphics, nice story. Galaxy Nexus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Faster paced plants vs zombies October 3, 2012
By Paul
Verified Purchase
Fun game, gameplay is similar to plants vs zombies but with the twist that you're controlling the main gunner. You can set turrets to shoot down the lines you're too busy to shoot.
Works ok on mytouch 4g, seems a bit laggy on loading but I think that's by design.
Worth the download as the FAOTD. Not sure why it needs to open internet sockets since it's a single player game. I'd probably give it a higher rating on game play but I hate it when games open internet sockets. Btw this game like plants vs zombies drains my battery like crazy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Froze my Fire but seems OK now October 3, 2012
By Sam98
Verified Purchase
I got to level 1-2 and my Kindle Froze solid. I had to reboot to get out of it, but it saved my progress and the second try I was able to get to 1-7 before the princess got kidnapped.

It's a fun game with great graphics and humorous story line. It is glitchy though. When buying power-ups, especially bullets, in the store I have to tap the item 5, 6, sometimes 9 or 10 times. Then when I do get them they very often don't work when I'm in-game. Game play starts up slow and easy but the speed of the minions coming at you ramps up pretty quickly.

Fire users if it froze on you, try it again. Maybe you will get lucky, or maybe the devs will update to fix the bugs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple fun. October 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
I gave this a shot as it was the faotd and was pleasantly surprised. The story dialogue took about 10 seconds to put a smile on my face and the gameplay was simple yet fun; though a little repetitive. The story however is cute and funny, so it should probably keep you going to the end. Its worth the $2 if you are into what's basically a modern asteroid defence clone. The app has reasonable permissions too, which combined with the fun game dialogue and lots of upgrades to unlock, is why I am giving it five stars. It's not the RPG or Tower Defense game that I had hoped it would be based on the icon and title, but there is a charm to its simplicity and dialog.

Thank you Dev & Amazon.

Edit: Half way through the game and one of its major flaws has now become extremely annoying; no multi-touch. For whatever reason they have not added program support for tapping two different fingers on different spots at the same time. Almost every android phone supports multitouch; there's no excuse that it's not added especially the game like this that requires you tapping excessively all over the screen. This means you can't tap with one finger to pick up coins or manna balls, at the same time tapping with a different finger to fire or cast a spell. It's incredibly annoying, and makes an already challenging game slightly obnoxious. You also can't slide your finger across the bottom and move your guy, you must tap on a specific spot.

Because of these flaws, I have to take off a star from my review. This is still a pretty good game. I have to admit I'm really not a big fan of this style gameplay but it's kept me amused so far, however without multitouch I'll probably uninstall never get to the end. It's that frustrating.

2.0 out of 5 stars So So
This game was pretty mediocre. Game play was not the greatest, effects were fair. Not really my style of game although it seemed that it would have more more RPGish than it was.
