A bit trickier to update (have to go through Apple approval each time instead of just releasing on testflightapp) but pure balance changes are pulled from my servers anyway.
The game would be clearly labelled beta though and I'm not sure Apple allows this.
Hmm, what country to pick...
Anybody been doing an open beta already?
No, I meant release it on testflight for anyone who wants in, and if the game is good you'll get tonnes of TA members joining.
