Disappointed this is for the mobile platforms. Would've been fun on the PC.

This looked pretty interesting, until I saw it was for mobile platforms only..

Why should the mobile platform discourage you from playing this? If anything, you should be even more excited to play. A game of this quality for just 2 bucks going anywhere you go is honestly amazing.

If you watch the video, see the game quality, and like it, then knowing that it's mobile should be a plus, not a negative. (Unless you don't have an iOS device.)

Not everybody has a smartphone/tablet, for starters.

And it would be cool to have a elven Archer unit that costs 40 credits as a improved archer type character who fires their bow faster and has a longer range. And it be cool to be able to have a new castle too with multiple walls and turret build spots. I guess theres always room for that sort of thing in a sequal! D

I don't have many gripes with the game. Infact its been on the best 2$ I've ever spent and its one of my most played games ever! My only gripe is that it would be cool to be able to use the engineer character on the wall. Since he is a ranged unit. And the constant drop-outs and connection problems i have online with co-op. The game is fun though :) I think Knights are too over-priced for their cost tbh. And its most cost effective to use Captains who can actually take a few hits. Peons suck even with the Upgraded building, which i dont think is worth 125 credits.

Having problems getting friend on through Game Center. One person is waiting and other waiting and nothing happens. Is there a trick to connect?

Because we use Game Center, the actual connecting part is totally out of our control >_< We just submitted a HUGE update with new content, as well as a ton of fixes, so maybe you'll see some improvement soon.
