    Hi, thanks for your comments and sorry for my late reply.

    @teamSOFA: For Coding we use "Eclipse" an Development Enviroment for Java, Google also gives you Code samples and tools for developing Android Software. Here you need to know how to code in java (there are many resources in web).

    Graphics: I paint sketches (most very simple) with pen and paper, do a scan of it and colorize. I use Corel Painter Essentials with a little Bamboo graphics tablet (from wacom). When i have parts for the game (towers, vegetation, stones), i put it together in Corel Photopaint (you also can use Photoshop or Gimp for that). Hope that helps a little bit, if you have more questions you can write me.

    Best regards,

    Thank you;)

    We have some small games in market, also a TD with other visuals than Swamp Defense and different balancing. We are working in sparetime, so our projects getting bigger and better step by step (so swamp Defense coud be the best of us ;) ). We also collect comments from users and put it in next releleases (also working on a next TD with alien ships, shields, more towers, 3 areas (arctis, africa, europe)more possibilities...)

    Best regards,

    Hi, this error occours often if the Google Market system have troubles. Can you try it later? We have checked it and on one system there is also this update now, but we have tried it a half hour ago and it works fine. Perhaps market trouble on weekend?

    We have checked it again on one device and there it is also a message, if you tap on the message we see "not enough memory", can it be the same problem on your hardware?

    Is it safe to assume that there'll be a paid for, ad-free version available at some stage? The adverts are very intrusive and distracting.

    Have played for a few minutes to test and seems nice. Would like to see the range that a tower reaches before I place it though.

    We work on a paid version with openfeint integration for online highscore. But i must build more levels for it because 4 maps are to less. I have some finished, step by step we include some more maps in the free version (next weekend map 5).

    Range: i have not idea yet how we can show range before placing it ;) At this time you must place it and then tap on the tower to see it. If you play a while you know the ranges of each tower. In a next version it can be that we try a bar on bottom where we drag a tower from it to the map.. in such way of placing you can see the range while dragging. But i also like the way to tap on the place where you set the tower.

    If you like an ad free version of a td game you can try "Swamp Defense" it is based on the same technic but with other balancing and other graphics style. There is also a free version to try available. It is also hard to decide what i like more, sometimes i like swamp defense in comic style (i painted very hard/long on it), sometimes my favorite ist River Defense ;) some users say that the balancing in River Defense is better.

    I found a trick to remedy the problem I had updating/reinstalling the game.

    1. Go to settings and unmount SD card.
    2. Install game.
    3. Remount SD card.

    This helped me with a couple of other games I was having issues with.

    @TCM: Thanks for this trick, it is a problem many users have. So this can fix it;)

    @all: We have some comments, that the game freezes on Samsung Galaxy S2, can someone test it on such a device and write when it happens? It works fine on other devices but here it seems to have a problem.

    Many Thanks!!!!

    As give away for the help we can give you some codes of games for xbox version of our games if some one has it (TCM -> do you hava a xbox360?)

    Infos:
    Swamp Defense 2 is a classic tower defense game with unique weapons and monsters as enemies for any beginner or defensive specialists.
    Fight countless enemies with a huge selection of gun turrets (in the form of comic heroes) and additional helpers (mines, air support, block wall) on more than 60 maps. Earn coins to obtain improvements in the integrated shop system and to buy new towers.

    History:
    In a once very peaceful village, a strange professor tried to build a machine (Arcade Klonomat) that was intended to clone cows and increase milk production. Already in the first tests, he found out that cows could not be cloned due to the high protein content of the milk. In short, the professor secretly sank the Arcade Klonomat in a nearby swamp. Favored by toxic fumes from the waste stored there from the local nuclear power plant, the Arcade Klonomat has been creating terrible swamp monsters since that day who wreak havoc in the neighborhood.

    Courageous villages fight an almost hopeless fight against the spawn of the swamp without suspecting that the valued professor is to blame for this problem. Instead of trying to find a solution, he built an Arcade Klonomat for people and demanded money for its use.
    Since this is only a very small village, the few residents are forced to clone themselves in order to compete against the swamp monsters as an army.


    TD features:
    - Shop system for buying and improving towers and for purchasing special weapons
    - 9 defense towers, capable of improvement (2 improvements each within a battle)
    - Support towers, special attacks and elements that can be placed along the path
    - Unique opponents
    - 54 unlockable maps + 9 bonus maps - Tower control (control of direction and aim of a tower)
    - Gun turrets: pistol (Buster), electron beam (Hank), fire fart (Jeremy), adhesive cream (Gregory), skillet (Meggie), rocket launcher (Little Joe), dynamite (Jay M.), lethal injection (Doc Igor), electric nail gun (Olek)
    - Power-up for each tower: damage, rate of fire, range
    - can be placed along the path: mine, adhesive cream fence, block wall
    - Supporters: fire power expansion, range expansion - Global help: area bomb, atomic bomb, air support
    - Save games in G+ (can therefore be played on multiple devices)
