I played the demo a few weeks ago, and it wasn't that great. There's nothing bad but there's nothing new or innovative either. It's too standard and nothing really makes it stick out from the crowd. It just feels like another free flash game on . But then again, I only played the demo for about an hour so maybe the game gets better.

It's a great game, lots of fun. It's a regular everyday tower defense, but it gets things just right. I'm not sure about this price being worth it, though, since I got mine for 1 dollar.

I bought it for full price when it was released. Didn't regret it, but as mentioned above "there's nothing new or innovative" in this game, just a solid, standard, already-known one.
I had pretty much fun but it gets really hard in the end. And I got frustrated, just beat the Allied campaign.

I can recommend it to absolute TowerDefense-lovers.

1,99€ here, now or never.

Get it, I'm hoping they release the second one via Steam as well and for the price it's a steal.

Played the demo and fell in love with it. It costs next to nothing, so you really can't go wrong...

Playing ONLY the demo, it feels like a low-quality iphone game. I'm guessing that's why it's called iBomber Defense, as they were hoping to aim the iOS market.

There are a bunch of other games at a better value than $2.50. Defense Grid ($2.50) and Anomaly ($3.33), and Sanctum ($3.75) are high-quality top notch tower defense. Atom Zombie Smasher ($2.98) is also really REALLY good, although not a traditional tower defense game.

And then there's Plants Vs Zombies($3.39), Monday Night Combat ($3.75)...

NOTE that the prices I quoted where when they were on sale, for comparison's sake. They'll be on sale again.

EDIT : Guess who didn't check out the midweek madness sale. The Indie Strategy Bundle has Anomaly, Defense Grid, Revenge of the Titans, Sanctum and Sol Survivor. All of them really REALLY great games. $10.

No! Just by playing the demo its not worth $2.50 and I'm usually the guy thats like "it's only $2.50 screw it why not" It feels like a really bad port. Play the demo before you purchase.

Appears as a rather simple tower defense game but is fun nonetheless. Great for small casual 20 minute sessions here and there and well worth the 2€ in my opinion.
If you like that genre you can't go wrong with this daily deal.

It isn't bad, but the tower targeting is horrible. Cannons regularly double up on one-shot kills, and towers often ignore the vanguard to target enemies further back. Gets worse any time a tower has to choose between two streams of enemies.

It's a run of the mill tower defense game, and I enjoy it. The problem I have with it is that the mouse gets messed up now and then, but it's correctable by dropping the tower and grabbing it again.
