I enjoyed the game. I agree that almost the entire idea is based on another game, but there are enough differences to make it unique in gameplay. The graphics really make it difficult to enjoy a lot, but I love the idea of the balloons. I also wish there were some sort of "bad guy counter" so you know when the wave will be over as well as some way to know how many guys you have/how quickly they spawn/ways to make them spawn faster with gold or something. Overall, fun game! Also, I enjoy the music quite a bit :)

Great game even though it looks like a similar game

It's an alright game, however it's missing several things to be good.

For one, I'd like to see an "endless" mode along with higher wave modes "25 waves", "50 waves".
15 waves is too short of a game, the only thing making it feel long is the slow pace.

The cave also needs a visible health bar!

Sometimes you lose no matter what, even if you have a lot of gold to fight off enemy waves, the balloons to buy troops don't appear quickly enough and you just end up losing.
This makes the dragon pretty much useless as well, as it can't hold of the enemies until the next balloon appears.

The game is very slow, it takes a while to get started and fast forwarding the waves doesn't help you at all to gain gold faster, it basically just makes you lose the game if you keep fast forwarding.

A real speed-up button would be nice, maybe with options "1x speed" "2x / 3x / 4x".

Would really like to see those changes and additions to the game someday.

This is almost an exact clone of Castle Woodwarf, the top rated game in "Strategy - Other" I say almost, because this one's graphics are worse, and the game lacks the ballance of the origional.

I like how there's always something that you can upgrade in throughout the game. It's like building your own little empire.
The main thing I wish there was, though, was an option to speed up the game. It takes a long time waiting for things to start happening, and then when you die and have to start all over, you have to wait all over again.
I also wish there was a save button (which branches off of what I just said) so that you could go back a certain point in the game instead of having to restart the whole thing. Otherwise, it makes it rather frustrating to replay the whole thing.

Besides these two things, I really liked the game.
