New Ship Date!

We spent a lot of time at GDC taking feedback on Rocket Patrol and once home worked hard on improving the game. I've updated the screenshots up top to show how the game now looks and it has a new launch date of 4-18-13!

Dude, Mille Borne (1000 miles or kilometers is what it tranlates to) is one of my favorite games EVER. I doubt many other Americans have played it...bought everyone I taught how to play fell in love with it. Is that the same game as "Touring"?

Actually, I remember Mille Bornes being pretty popular 30-35 years ago.

I think Touring was around before Mille Borne, I've never actually played Mille Borne. From what people tell me though is that Rocket Patrol plays a lot faster, it's a different game but still a travel game.

@ zaphodgjd

Graphics look slick! BUT, not the three buttons at the very bottom (Swap, Undo, Play). They are too big so the bottoms are sheared off. Looks out of place with the rest of the UI looking so polished. Will you consider fixing those so they fit on the screen? (iPad 2)
