  1. Please let me purchase it :D

    Purchasing apps in android market is not yet available in my country, and I want to buy the paid version. Can I make a direct payment? Can you contact me about a purchase?

  3. V2 visuals make the game almost unplayable on my tablet. The graphics are too dark, the zoom resets itself to "too big" at every start (and even at the smallest, I still can't get the playing area AND the pieces on the same screen without the stupid overlay), the enemy health bars are too thin to see, and about a dozen other things that make me wish I'd stayed with the FREE version. I can't handle it for more than a few seconds and I have to quit. What a disaster.

  4. I love it!!! Beautifully done, haven't checked out survival mode yet or the new unlockables but so far it looks brilliant.

  5. COOL ghost at the start page!

    High Quality Graphics are less "cartoon-ish" but kinda dark, grainy and damn ugly. Looks like a carbon paper imprint or maybe a toner cartridge spill.

    Unfortunately, 2.0 won't make me want to play this tired-ass game.

  7. Look out 2.0 hi-jacks your mobile connection.

    Running or even ending Robo Defense won't let you manually turn off your mobile connection. You have to turn off Robo Defense from running in the background via the Applications Manager if you want to turn off your mobile connection.

  8. CAPS INTENTIONAL! I AM SCREAMING!
    UPDATE SUCKS! ON MY EVO, LOOK IS GRAINIER AND UGLIER THAN EARLIER VERSION. IF I HAD KNOWN THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN I NEVER WOULD HAVE UPDATED.
    YOU HAVE MADE IT HARDER TO SEE THE ACTION WITH NEW GRAINIER COLOR SCHEME. LUPIS LABS, GO BACK TO BETTER GRAPHICS. I PLAYED FOR HOURS YESTERDAY AND NOW I DO NOT WANT TO PLAY AT ALL. ....BUMMED OUT

  9. I DOUBLE CHECKED. AND IT IS STILL AWFUL. I CANT SEE THE ROCKET TOWERS AS WELL. BLEND INTO THE BACK GROUND TOO MUCH. NO DIFFERENTIATION.
    QUALITY HAS PLUMMETED. F#$@!

  11. I like the upgraded visuals. BTW, Survival Mode keeps going until you are dead, jumping levels of difficulty each time you complete a level. You do not start from a given level like normal. Thanks for the extra achievements and weapons, I had stalled after getting everything!

  12. I don't mind the new update. Looks good to me. The graphics on the towers and bad guys are good, but I do see where the background can be dark. Maybe lighten it up in a future update? Also, since you added a battery icon at the top, perhaps you could add a clock.... I play games to waste time, but with no clock I can't see the time.

  13. Was seriously considering buying this game since I loved the free version.

    But since the update I'm not that thrilled with it. The new graphics are a matter of taste, allthough I certainly prefer the older graphics (was easier to see everything).

    What really gets me is the performance! :(
    In the previous 1.x version I could have a huge load of enemies walking around without any problem. Now when I have 3-4 enemies and a few turrets it's really sluggish and laggy.
    And my Galaxy S certainly isn't a slow phone at all!

    Is there any way to buy the old version? That one was rocking and would happily pay $3 for it!

  14. I agree with some other comments, I find the new graphics far less appealing than the previous version. So bad in fact that I'd choose to revert to the previous version if there was an obvious way of doing so.

    I'm willing to accept that such things are a matter of taste, but would it perhaps be possible to add an option to switch back to the old graphics for those of us who want to?

  15. I really like new graphics, and my Galaxy S doesn't lag at all... Those new achievments and survival mode are great.. but i still would add some new enemies in higher lvls.

    The only issue i noticed, was that it still literally devours your battery... and if you play it for a while, your phone gets really hot.

  16. I think the new graphics look awful. Very grainy, and it's impossible to tell which enemies have been affected by the slow towers. Perhaps a future version can have the option of which graphics to use?

  17. Not too happy with it since it wont even load on my phone anymore. I paid for it a while ago and i play it all the time but now i cant anymore. When i click on new game it goes to black screen, says loading then after a few seconds then program shuts down. Any ideas on why it does this?

  18. Love the new graphics and new options, though I would like to see a comprehensive manual that explains exactly what everything is. WTF is survival mode? All I know is that when I enabled it, I didn't survive for very long.

  19. cant update the game i'm running it on firmware 1.5 tmobile g2 touch/htc hero...

  20. I think there are a few errors with the Survival Mode. I have had highly variable difficulty. The 1st run through I made it to ~lvl 80. 2nd to ~lvl 90 and then on the 3rd almost had lvl 100, but fell a bit short. But now my last 5 run throughs I have died around lvl 50-65. Almost always due to a ridiculous (25-40, hard to tell) chain of the carrier ships.

    I'm not sure if the 1st 3 play-throughs or the rest are what the difficulty was intended to be, but the 1st 3 plays seemed to scale in a logical sense and I had fun. Now though, its almost dumb luck of what will spawn. I have the screen filled with the advanced air missles and 8 teleports at the end and one wave of enemies will wipe out ~30 lives. Suffice to say, that isn't fun at level 60, when I've made it close to 100.

    A separate (but maybe related?) issue is that if you exit to the title in between levels, when you enter back into the game the next wave of enemies will be VERY weak. The score gains reflect this. The wave after this weak wave jumps back to a more difficult level. I've had 600pt enemies jump to 12,000+ pts.

    I really like survival mode and I hope these issues can be addressed so I can continue to lvl 100 trophy and more!

  21. Have an Evo - game had a very simple, clean look - now gives incredible eyestrain. Please give an old look option.

  22. I was so surprised to see this. Thanks for keeping on working on this!

  23. Nice to see an update with so many upgrades. I like the new graphics, but the problem is that it takes too much CPU and it makes my HTC hero lag. I am obliged to tweak the options and then it isn't nice anymore.
    The zoom option is a good idea, because on some levels (courtyard mainly...) it is a pain if you can't see everything, but the problem is that outside the default zoom level it is pixelisated (but I don't see any other way to do this).
    Something really missing imo is a user manual, that introduces the various ennemies (speed, armor, etc), weapons (range, power, kind of targets, etc), rewards and bonuses.
