Subatomic Studios launched their long awaited sequel to Fieldrunners tonight. Fieldrunners was one of the early success stories on the App Store with an initial launch in October 2008.

The game was one of the first Tower Defense games in the App Store and has since been ported to a number of other platforms. Fieldrunners 2 builds on the popularity of the first game:

Fieldrunners 2 was looking fantastic in this nearly final state, and looks to do exactly what you want a sequel to a successful title to do. It keeps the things that made the original so great while simultaneously expanding upon them in new ways that won't alienate the core fan base. Also, it introduces new elements that they made sure fit in line with what you would expect from a Fieldrunners sequel, and at the same time the entire experience scales well to a hardcore and casual audience, making it much more approachable to a wider group of players.


The game is available for iPhone for $2.99. [iTunes Link]

Yeah I'm baffled by modern iOS games that release a separate iPhone and iPad version... with a universal app, iCloud save syncing is trivial.

At least give us the option - When you release that more expensive iPad version, make it a universal app. Nobody will buy both versions because their progress won't sync so you won't lose any money there...

Non-multi platform games are dealbreakers. The first one $2.99 on iPhone and $7.99 for the iPad? You gotta be kidding! I was about to buy the new App and then I saw, no iPad support, read through here that they wait for input from the iPhone App and then will come out with the 2nd one on the iPad. Sorry guys, not with me. I buy quite a bit of Apps, but I won't pay twice for the same one.

I'm confused about why an iPad version of the same game would cost more? :confused:
