The critically acclaimed Fieldrunners originally launched in 2008 as one of the first games for the then new iPhone. Its hand painted artwork, instantly accessible tower defense gameplay, and addictive action, quickly caught attention of Steve Jobs, who demonstrated Fieldrunners for iPad in front of fans. TIME Magazine included Fieldrunners in their “ Top 10 Video Games,” alongside hits like Grand Theft Auto IV, Braid, Gears of War 2, and Rock Band 2. The game went on to win the Best Game and Achievement in Art in the 2009 IGF Mobile, and was a finalist in the 2010 Indie Games Challenge.
