Seemed good through the tutorial, but then started crashing as soon as it reaches overview screen. Tried reinstalling, and even installing on different devices, but still unplayable. For 5 bucks, I assume they fix this soon.

Sorry for the inconvenience. The crash has been fixed, we hope you enjoy the game!

Cute, Strategic, Family Friendly

Love the cute art. The competitor in me LOVES the leaderboard. Also, where else are you going to see grasshoppers with jet packs or ants on Segways? The game is very easy to pick up and play. I enjoy tower defense games in general, and I feel comfortable sharing this one with friends and family of all ages. No in app purchases, so I feel comfortable gifting this to younger family members as well.

Delicious defense

I've been enjoying the game on Steam and it was an instant buy for me on mobile. I love being able to try and top the leaderboard on the go. The graphics are really cute and I need to plan carefully to get high scores. It works great for me on my first generation iPad mini.
