Thank You for Updating to 64 Bit!

UPDATE: You have made so many happy. Thank you for updating the BEST iOS game EVER made. Now, I can finally update to iOS 11.4!


This is the best game I have ever played and it's preventing me from updating my iOS devices to iOS 11. You should update it for those who have purchased it and still prefer it to TM2. Are you really abandoning us? Update to 64 bit and charge us again if you must. Heck, you can even include new courses if you have a guilty conscience over abandoning your customers. You guys got it right the first time and got many of us hooked. You're also responsible for the pain we're suffering going without. For the love of mankind, help us out and relieve our pain!

How did I miss this update?

This, the original Tower Madness, was not only the best tower defense game I’ve ever played but it was also one of the best mobile games ever and — dare I say it — just one of the best games period. When Limbic let it lapse in favor of the greatly inferior TowerMadness 2, I joined the mass of heartbroken fans who deleted the no longer supported original having already deleted the sequel in disappointment. I just noticed today that Limbic caves in to fan demands and updated this game and I am stoked to download and play it again! I hope it will let me restore all my old map pack purchases and the flamethrower!

Quit working with IOS 11

Update 2: even more thrilled to find that after I uninstalled & reinstalled the game it works! My 5 star review stands.

Update: was thrilled to see Limbic updated the game to run under the new IOS!! I downloaded the upgrade but sadly it still won’t run. The splash pops briefly then the app closes without error. IPhone 7, current IOS.

One of my all time favorite games. Can no longer play as it fails to open after the upgrade to IOS 11, so 1 star. Would rate 5 stars if compatibility issue was fixed.
