    Looks interesting. Reminds me of patapon for the psp (art style).

    Yeah, this is... bizarre. I always wondered what Patapon would look like reimagined as a cheap tower defense game by a Chinese clone studio. Oh, no, wait, no I didn't.

    Seriously, though, it's... actually not that bad? Feelingtouch are the guys who did Rope Cut, which was all right for a ripoff, and this is at least quite inventive. The main thing is the balance is all over the place, with prices for different units and upgrades for your castle really, really high, some powers completely ineffective, at least to start with, and gameplay boiling down to a hell of a lot of swiping across the screen very fast. Until your fingers start to cramp up.

    It's interesting, and oddly addictive, and in a way it'd be a shame if Sony got it yanked. I'd call it more creative than Angry Birds ever was in some ways. But it still feels like a half-finished game, and given these guys are a knockoff shop I'm not sure they'll ever make it as good as it could be. Hey, still, apparently they've already tweaked it for balance issues, so you never know.

    Keep in mind it is free, and there are no adds that get in the way either. ;)

    There is that. Although they do cover the pause button. :p

    Seriously, though, it is a hell of a grind. Fifty thousand gold to get two arrows at once instead of one, when a single dragon nets you 100-250? Free or not, swiping my finger across the screen in pretty much exactly the same way a couple of hundred times just isn't that much fun.

    And yet I still haven't uninstalled it, so they must be doing something right. Like I said, they may be a clone studio, but they've got some interesting ideas, kind of.
