Summary: Good game, interesting take on tower defense. My one issue is that when the hordes are at the gates the stylus control doesn't hold up. You're trying to repair a tower but you are fighting a dude or you're doing a special move but it fails because the touch screen isn't up for the task. Now I'm not only blaming the DS but I think between 30-40% of the failures were on the system while the other 70-60% were on me.
Summary: I had a lot of fun playing this game, there were some little annoying gameplay elements that ALMOST made me want to yell, but overall, this game deserves a chance for those who love strategy games.
Summary: I bought this for my 8 yr old son, who loves the Professor Layton games. It is similar in that there are challenges to solve, but it doesn't have quite the same appeal. A good buy for your DS money, but not the best in class.
