    You got me all excited thinking it just got released [​IMG]

    That mysterious option 'Multiplayer' might be something to look forward later on as well [​IMG]

    Is this a port? If not, it must've taken ages to make that. Why would anyone spend so much time and energy to release that on DS? How many people actually use homebrew on the DS? 500?

    Incredible effort, hope it's good.

    Warcraft TDs rock, so hopefully this one will too.

    Looks sweet.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That is, thank you for making a homebrew game in a genre that is, for no apparent reason, completely absent from official development on DS. The handheld is screaming for an RTS, but its cries for attention are being completely ignored by all the companies [​IMG]

    Blizz needs to forget about Starcraft Ghost and just make a great RTS for DS. Starcraft 2 anyone?

    Just before you all get too excited:

    This isn't a port of warcraft 3... but a port of the tower defense maps that could be used in that game, a kinda subgenre =] Still wicked though!

    Looks amazing, how LONG has it taken you to get to this point? Can't wait to play this [​IMG] Out of curiosity, how large is the game going to be file size wise?

    I'm have been working on this game for about 4 months [​IMG]

    The size depends on how many maps you include with the game exe. It's actually 2.80Mb, and one map takes in average around 50Kb.
