How much will Pyramus cost?

Game description from Facebook:
Quote:
Pyramus brings space combat down to a tactical level, focusing on commanding individual ships with special abilities to outwit your opponent. The game features two challenging 10 mission campaigns giving players control of two unique races, the Korthan and the Terran. Your strategy and tactics will settle the struggle for power as your enemies close in around the Pyramus sector.

^from the FB description, it sounds like it's Battleheart with a spacefleet.

It'll be priced at 69p ($0.99) for launch, then will increase to 1.49 ($1.99).

$0.99 sounds suspiciously low; that hardly seems fair to you guys (the developer).

Default Pyramus Review

PYRAMUS

What is PYRAMUS ? - I'd never heard of the word so ran to google - and I discover Pyramus was one half of a doomed babylonian relationship. Culture from HCS ? - Surely I must be mistaken ? - they're known for games like Fallensword, Sigmastorm and the up-coming Eldevin on the PC platform and Tank Battle, Civil War & Battle Dungeon on the iphone/ipad platform.

OK, so the name isn't connected to the Babylonian Romeo and Juliet. Thank heavens for that.

What we have is a game that is, on very first impressions, reminiscent of that old arcade classic, Asteroids.

Thankfully, that's not accurate either. Its a real time space combat game with multiple types of space ship that either battle solo or en-masse, utilising each others strengths and covering each others weaknesses. An example being, gunships have weapons but are relatively weak, armour wise. To keep them "alive" and working for you, you need to liase with your support vessel, which has a "healing ray" which regenerates their shields, allowing them back into combat.

The tutorial holds your hands pretty well ...

Mission 1 : Navigate a gunship from point A to point B
Mission 2 : Use the gunship to destroy 3 inert targets
Mission 3 : Use the destroyer to destroy live targets
Mission 4 : Use your support vessel and gunship in harmony to safely navigate through the dangerous Nebula

Once you've completed this tuturial, it's all systems go.

You then start on the Terran Coalition campaign, of which there are 10 missions - each successive one being unlocked by the completion of its predeccesor. Complete this and you can then fight as the Korthan Empire for another 10 missions.

All in all, a fun way of spending some time. It has a special, 50% off, introductory price - so, spend your dollar and give it a whirl.
