That's odd. Seems to be working fine for me. Does the below link work for you?

Great game!

Is there a thread in the new releases section? I know this isn't new but this game deserves more attention I think. I only found this thread by doing a search. I didn't even know this sub forum existed. I'll bet a lot of people don't, especially like me who use the forum primarily from the main TA page.

I reviewed this 5 stars on the App Store. Why so many low ratings there? Was that before the update?

I really like this game. You did a great job.

Potential here, but the missiles are wayyyyyy too slow and I think you should probably have 2 available at a time to speed up the pace a bit.

basically, if you miss, you're screwed and all you can do is watch...which just isn't fun.

Hey schplurg,

Yep, there is a a thread for it's initial release in the fall. It should be updated with this announcement as well. I'm glad you enjoy the game, be sure to tell your friends. The more users and reviews, the quicker we'll pump the updates out with new maps and even more cool features. Possibly even multiplayer mode.

We received tons of great feedback regarding the graphics, so we decided to redo them with 3-D graphics, hope you like.

Hey Chess,

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

There's actually a button in the bottom left, which allows to you speed up the game play if you'd like. How many planes have you shot down? You may notice 2 dots next to each missile turret. We've added a little bonus that gives you an extra missile for each turret when you reach a certain number of planes shot down. Have you experience that yet?

No worries...meant to be constructive. I hadn't reached the upgrade point, so I'll keep it on the phone and keep working it. I did get an EMP though.

My concern is just that folks will get turned off by the slow pace early on and just give up on it. I think it would be better to give the two missile capability right off the bat to make it easier and more engaging early on...basically give it a smoother difficulty curve.

Anyway, just 2 cents from one guy...like I said, lots of potential.

Not bad. Something different: ✈ ;-)

Timing and tactic puzzle. Runs fine on iPad 2 (tested for five minutes and cleared first level). Eleven heavy OpenFeint achievements. Will pick it up again for sure. Featured on my blog (I'm a bit late and hope it will stay free for some more time).

Thanks for the freebie!

So I got up to about 130, so I think I opened it up, and yeah, it's more fun later...but I had to get through some initial frustration/boredom to get there. Give some thought to giving 2 missiles off the bat and keeping everything else the same. It shouldn't affect the ultimate outcome for high scores and such, but it will make it easier and more fun early on.

Good game and will keep it on the phone. Thanks for the freebie!
