Normally i would wait for a new title to drop to 99 cents, cause i am cheap...but just seeing the video for this, it was an instant purchase

totally worth 1.99, and i don't think that about a lot of games

It's interesting, but let's ask the common questions:

1) Does it autosave?
2) Play your own music?
3) How does the multiplayer work? Pass and play? Wifi?
4) There are 500 levels, how does the difficulty change? changing the location of the planets?

Hey touchArcaders, cheers for the initial feedback! I'm one of the developers of the game so it's nice to hear a good reaction.

Some answers:

1) Does it autosave?
Yes. If you're in the middle of a mission and turn off the device it'll pause the game.

2) Play your own music?
Yep. The guy that made our music won't like it, but you can play your own if you want.

3) How does the multiplayer work? Pass and play? Wifi?
Two-player mode is simultaneous (i.e. not turn-based) and on the same device. It's more hectic that way.

4) There are 500 levels, how does the difficulty change? changing the location of the planets?
The AI is quite sophisticated. The different cultures play in individual styles, and each culture has several levels of skill. You'll find that the first levels are hard to lose, while I think I'm the only person (I know of) that can beat the toughest enemies.

I'll stick around so ask more questions if you want. I emailed arn about a review... anything else I can do? Oh yeah, some codes:

First come first served, but if you post nice stuff I might hand out some more.

So far i am actually enjoying it

although playing a two person game this morning over breakfast at a diner...I found that it was better to just approach it like a turn based because we were both aggressively tapping on the touch, but i do like having the option of having the real time there...
