Troops - Upcoming real-time strategy + puzzle game

I'm very excited to be able to let you all know about my new game for the iPhone (and iPad). Troops is a single-player and multiplayer, real-time strategy + puzzle game inspired by an old UNIX classic, xbattle.

The game has 60 built-in levels, and lets you create and share your own directly from the game too.

Some other features:
  • Universal app
  • Full retina-display support
  • Complete level editor built-in
  • You can share new levels with other players over email, Twitter, Facebook etc.
  • Unique combination of RTS and puzzle gameplay
  • 60 levels in game
  • New levels delivered daily via Twitter
  • Single-player or multi-player via bluetooth
  • Preview shared levels on the web before playing them

Here's a couple of screenshots of the game on the iPhone...


You can see a little more at the game's website: http://troops.sixleaf.com/
