Lyra Snow ,


Hey Devs it’s Lyra again doing another review and idk what to say or even describe how happy I am to see my first played iOS game back up and running with more support. I can’t wait to spend countless hours killing aliens and doing insane stuff in sandbox mode (by far the best mode😂). Something to note, please don’t remodel or retexture the current guns and aliens, it’s totally classic the way you have it and I think that’s just where it should stay. Seeing more unique weapon types would be fun to see as well as more maps with 3D paths for the aliens to take to make the defense even more challenging. Sorry for the long comment but I love this game and would love to see it still going strong also do an anniversary update to state how long it’s been on the App Store. -Lyra Snow

After 5 years still my favorite game ever!

I got this game when it first came out and I have to say it's still my most played favorite game ever for iPhone. The game is so challenging because there is so many ways to play it. If you play this game for 3 hours I promise you will not be able to ever put it down. The maps are amazing the game play is simple yet so involved and it's amazing. Thank you for making the best iPhone game. I get I have played every week or day for 5 years straight. I love this game. It will be a long time before I think about stopping this game. I wish I had more time to play it.

Thank you!

This is still the best tower defense game ever made, period. I’ve lost more hours than I care to admit, struggling to beat every level. It was years of work (not exaggerating!). I was devastated to find out this game wasn’t compatible with my new phone a few years ago.

I’m ecstatic to find this game updated and working perfectly tonight! I was actually in the App Store hoping to find an acceptable replacement tonight and when I found TM had been updated, I was overjoyed.

Thank you Limbic!
