Fans of such tower defense games as Babel Rising will immediately get hooked on Hills of Glory’s gameplay. The game takes place during the trying times of World War II, with your player trapped in a makeshift bunker, with only a sniper rifle to rely on. Countless troops charge from all sides, either on foot or from vehicles, such as jeeps and tanks. You’ll start out by shooting incoming soldiers, but as you progress, you’ll unlock new abilities to fend off the invading forces. These include grenades, lasers and a helicopter that swoops overhead, firing its machine guns.

Players will be delighted with how easy Hills of Glory is to play. Simply input commands via the touch screen, and ultimate chaos will be unleashed. Tap on the screen to snipe an enemy, draw a vertical line to shoot a burst of gunfire, hold a position to pull the pin on a grenade or draw two vertical swipes to call in the big helicopter guns. More weapons will become available over the course of each round, including some devastating napalm.
Hills of Glory: WWII features 15 story mission, along with a helpful tutorial mode, the option to customize soldiers with special skills and a Quick Play mode, with unending waves of soldiers. The game also features full support for both OpenFeint and GameCenter, so players can share their accomplishments, trophies and highest scores.
"We’re very pleased with Hills of Glory," stated Vincent Dondaine, COO of BulkyPix. "Its gameplay is not only addictive, but very easy to get into. So even if you’re not prone to playing tower defense games all the time, you’ll get into this one with no problem."
"This is our finest accomplishment to date," stated Joe Suchandsuch, Mando Productions. "It’s incredibly cool to command members of your army with just a few swipes on the screen, and the ability to compete against your friends via OpenFeint and GameCenter simply sweeten the deal."
With dynamic, furious gameplay, a number of available modes and excellent visuals, Hills of Glory is a tower defense game that shouldn’t be missed. The game will be available at a special introductory price when it arrives in the App Store beginning of June.
