Fieldrunners HD Available from Amazon Today for Free, A Tower Defense Game with Stunning Graphics

If you were looking to get into the next big thing in Android tower defense games, you’ll want to head straight over to the Amazon Appstore today and grab this new goodie called Fieldrunners HD.  It’s free for the next 24 hours, but will go up to $2.99 thereafter.  While I haven’t had a chance to dive into it yet myself, from the videos and multiple screenshots I’ve seen over the last week or so, I can tell you that I’m installing it right now to get in some quality time.  Tower defense games may seem all so similar, but this one looks stunning.

And to our international friends that don’t have access to Amazon, you can find it for $1 today in the Android Market.

    Thanks for checking out our game!  We’ve got tablet support coming very soon in a new update.  In the mean time, if you have a tablet you can pinch to zoom on the black screen and everything should be fixed.  For high score entry issues, try hitting the back button twice to toggle the keyboard on.  Hope that helps! This will all be fixed in an update that’s hopefully coming out tonight.

    Cool… I can finally get a game on An*roid that I have been playing since 2007 on ipod touch/iphone – very cool indeed

    Very fun game but after you lose it freezes on “Enter Your Name” for the new high score. Just gotta close it out via home button and start over

    I and my buddies happened to be studying the nice secrets from your site then unexpectedly came up with a terrible feeling I had not thanked the website owner for those techniques. These women happened to be for that reason passionate to read them and have now in actuality been taking advantage of them. Thank you for genuinely considerably helpful and for using certain superb issues millions of individuals are really desperate to be aware of. Our sincere apologies for not saying thanks to you earlier.

    I can’t even buy it from the Android Marketplace, the ThunderBolt, Droid Charge or XOOM are supported.  What devices does this support anyways.

    • Dan

      It let me “purchase” and download on my TB without issue.  You have to be on wifi to download.

      When i downloaded to my xoom however, the screen is fullscreen but the text is scrunched together.  When you start a game it goes black and only the game buttons are visible……

    I got an error message: “Fieldrunners is too big to download on a cellular network, please connect to WiFi” WTF this sucks!

      On a 4GLTE device no doubt.  I agree..what gives?

      • On Amazon anything over 20mb has to be WiFi only download. its their way to prevent people from getting mad on their tier data plans. It actually says WIFI ONLY on the apps that require WiFi.

    • I think you will see more messages like this now that data is capped. I know 3G and 4G CAN download the large file, but markets are trying to protect customers that don’t understand data sizes. Can you imagine being on a 2GB Shared plan and downloading a 300MG file on the first day of the cycle? It could end up costing people $10+ for a free game.

      You can thank the carriers for that.

    Was going to switch to the iPhone 5, but after the release of so many good apps on android in the past month I feel no reason to switch. Now I just have to live with the thunderbolt running cyanogenmod until the droid bionic comes out.

    • Why do you want the Bionic? The Thunderbolt on CM7 is everything the Bionic will be but with a single core processor and a better screen.

      • TheAndroid1

        Battery life and slow lock on the gps. I use gps all of the time and it can sometimes take an upward of 5 minutes to get a lock. Battery life is actually worse on Cyanogenmod 7, which is pretty bad considering the already poor battery life on stock. I am probably heading out tonight to try the external battery as I would really like to have the nexus 4g.

        (And before I get some person telling me that bad battery life is my fault, screen brightness is on medium, gps is off, wifi is off, bluetooth is off, basically everything is off including 4g)

    Anyone get this running on OG Droid? I know, I know, it’s called HD and previous iOS ports like PVZ and Peggle have been horrible, but this game is really old and was never totally hardware-intensive (I had it on my iPhone 1 like 3 years ago).

    It pains me that I need to ask this every time a new, awesome game comes out. T_T

  • got this early this morning, its pretty good, i wish there were more towers/upgrades but that alright, looks pretty good as well. only problem is that you cant exit the game and close it through back or menu buttons, only option is press Home which leaves it still open but doesnt pause what you are doing.

    • Ozyman666

      If you click on the sprocket icon on the bottom left, you are given the option to save and quit.

      • i appreciate it, but also noticed this from the main menu, cant exit except Home button.

    I went to buy it from android market and it’s not supported in my country. I’m confused, is it not available in America?

    • Which America, lol? North or south? That is really odd. I didn’t get an error like that. Do you have your connection going through another DNS other than default?

    • aj522

      If you are in the US the only way to get it is through amazon.  It’s a 14 day exclusive in the US only, everywhere else it’s on the android market.

    Looks like they took the Heavy and solder form TF2,

  • Good game but another poor iOS port where multitasking isn’t implemented correctly. You press your home key and try to go back to the game and it has to restart from the beginning. No excuse for that.

      Are we sure this isn’t an Amazon app thing? I’ve only noticed this on Amazon apps.

      • No because on some other game apps I’ve gotten from Amazon it hasn’t been a problem. Just this game and Popcap’s games really. They should take notes from Zeptolab because they did an awesome port of Cut the Rope.
