It was a lot of fun trying the game out in it's multiplayer form today. I do hope this gets a little more polish before it's official launch and I hope more people jump on it, especially for a dollar. The app title just saying "Genesis" would be wonderful also.

Not sure why this was pulled, perhaps as mentioned, it soft launched by accident...

For any wondering, the gameplay is identical to StarCraft: Build drones, gather resources, build farms for more units, then soldiers, etc. Be careful of the incoming rush, expand to a new base when running low on ore, siege tanks, air transports, invisible scouts, upgrades and power in numbers... It's all here.

Goodness, I finally got through all the tutorial missions. This really is the first full-fledged RTS on the iOS. People weren't kidding when they said this was SCBW. Siege tanks, dropships, medics, etc. It's all there. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing honestly. 200 APM wasn't even quit enough to play BW at "Master League" level. Now, we have to do it all with just touch controls. SCII made macro insanely easier, lowering the APM requirements by a good 33%-55%. 200 APM is even fine at the GM level now from my experience. It'll still be to play a few games of WoG here and there though.

Looked through the leaderboards; only 11 people have played ranked games. That's a little discouraging. Hopefully the game will pick up once it's back on the AppStore. Not really a fan of the iAP system of the game, but then again, it was $0.99. Will try to come up with a few builds in the near future and hopefully see some of you guys online.

Bts, how does this compare the starfront?
Devo I missed this.
Also, it looks a little....laggy particularly when moving about in the vidy. Is that true?
