Then I stumbled across the first appstore offering from Jumbo Squid Productions, a strategic defense like game titled Zogma: Tactical Zombie Survival Simulator. With a name like that, they had me curious. Read more to see if this game had me craving more brains, or less death.
During the last several months the AppStore has literally been swamped with various Tower Defence games. Some were original, some were more traditional, some were downright poor in quality.

One of the major projects this last Christmas has been the AppVentCalendar. An initiative, organized by Blacksmith Games and joined by a number of developers, each of which made their app free for one day. The results were so succesfull, that Blacksmith games, together with: ICS Mobile, creators of Navy Patrol: Coastal Defense; Tapjoy, creators of TapDefense; and the leading iPhone social platform, OpenFeint, have decided to launch FreeAppADay.com – where the same principle is going to run 365 days each year.
Tower Defence is one of the most represented genres on the iPhone. And as such, it seems that almost every idea possible has been already implemented and that it’s impossible to think of anything new. Gladly, Origin8 has just proved this statement wrong.
