Fun and cute; in need of quality if life updates?

I love this game and have found it on multiple platforms; but in my opinion, it is in dire need of a touch-up. Post-knight and now Post-knight 2 is out, but Tiny Guardians hasn't gotten anything new. Issues for me:

1. You can't bring new units to previous missions - makes doing older missions more of a chore than enjoyment, and takes away the fun of the challenge (can't use new "cards" on hard-mode either).

Possible solution: allow new units to be used on older levels right away, or maybe it's unlocked after finishing the main storyline.

2. The story is sweet, but once you complete it, besides endless mode, there isn't much to do/aim for...

Possible solution: New game-modes, or maybe a "portal to another world" situation, or Lunala does a new map with [Spoiler].

3. The game screen and features are copy and pasted when played on different platforms. So, on my iphone I can barely read some of the writing due to how the game fills the screen, or I can't see some of the time release circles because they are almost completely offscreen!

4. Targeting issues: the way the a.i. targeting works makes it impossible for you to "make" your units attack a particular enemy, so sometimes your units are decimated because the targeting system doesn't allow you to "prioritize" certain targets!

Overall a great, smoothly built game that is tricky to play, at times, but fun to pick up!

Cute and strategic

Comparisons to Kingdom Rush aside, this is a very fun “reverse tower defense”. Guiding the main character through hoards of baddies is very fun, and in some fights it gets quite hectic, swiping here and there trying to herd your lil defensive units to safety. Sometimes it’s a little too hectic, and even on my large phone screen it’s easy to poke the wrong unit during a fracas leading to some minor frustration, but it mostly works well.

The graphics are unfortunately the main reason people assume this is a Kingdom Rush clone. The character design definitely has its own style though, and some of the units are downright adorable. The level design is a bit less engaging (I wish I could zoom out!) but definitely serviceable.

All in all this is a solid, unique game, and much more than it appears at first glance.

I love the game but (edit)

Ok I want to buy a unit with money. The Paladin. However, when I purchased the unit, the game crashes. I log back in to see it still not acquired. I buy it again (this time for free due to already purchasing it) but the game crashes once more. This repeats on and on. Why? You already fixed the bug with the bundle purchase. There goes my money down the drain without anything to show for it. Please fix it to the best of your abilities.

Nevermind, after consistently restarting the app it worked all of a sudden but still please fix that bug, it’s quite frustrating.
