    Looks like a mix of Tower Defense and RTS, but it's been getting great reviews. I can't wait for it to be dumped [​IMG] (if it's as good as it sounds, I'll buy it too, so shut up anti-pirates)

    Was gonna do a thread myself hyping this up, but instead I'll bump this one.

    Been following this game when it was called Construction Combat: Lock's Quest. It does sound a lot like Tower Defense and every review I've seen has stated how great combat & building works on the DS. I really hope that this gets the success of their last game and I hope it doesn't go the way of the awesome brilliant Soul Bubbles.

    5th Cell seem to have improved massively from their last game (Drawn to Life) so I very much look forward to what else they do. Perhaps they could bring the expand their own mobile title Siege on the DS/WiiWare too.

    Seriously people, if you enjoy this buy it!

    Good sales = more original IP's like this.
    Less sales = more titles from cash in movie titles from THQ & Petz clones.

    I absolutely hate the top-screen art of the character, the actual pixel version looks way cooler. But that's my only complaint, the game is one of the best this year according to IGN. Can't wait til it's dumped.

    Is it just me, or does the pixel version of the character look kinda like Naruto?

    That trailer was as cheesy as it gets.
    But the game looks great, looking forward to it.

    i said that, and it's not exactly the same.

    picture the pixel art one but with cat ears, that's a drawn to life character.

    Just getting started on this game after getting hyped playing the flash promo game. It's really cool so far. Ive been playing through all the new releases that I enjoy, which is unusual for me I often dont finish games.. First N+, then from the abyss, and I plan on logging a lot of hours on this game.

    I played this for a while briefly at work today and I have to say, I found it quite enjoyable and will be playing more of it. I'm still catching up with a lot of older games I haven't played... just finished Trace Memory and thought it was great.

    If this game ends up good, I'm definitely going to purchase it. Make sure you support great quality titles in general, people, or they're going to go away.

    The graphics are really nice IMHO, and so far I'm really enjoying this title.

    This game is nice,but very exhausting,and a little bit repetitive..
    First,you fight off too many waves at once.
    Second,you basically do the same thing over and over again.
    I hope it gets better later in the game

    That's just the way tower defense games work. It won't let up. Bigger waves of enemies in harder-to-defend areas. Pretty fun game but yeah, quite exhausting...
