Our planned release date is late September or early October depending how long it takes to be accepted by Apple. As soon as we have a definite date we'll let you know.

We've made the controls as simple and intuitive as possible. You tap anywhere on the screen to shoot your primary weapon. Once you unlock more ships you fire your secondary weapon (eg naval guns, harrier jets, CIWS defence gun, etc) by dragging a line from the weapon to the target.

I can put together a short video showing how this works if you like.

Your ship (or fleet) will be maneovering through canals, past channels and even in open ocean just to avoid the waves of enemy units. This is automatic and lets you focus on managing the multiple weapon systems at your disposal (such as harriers, choppers, CIWS and naval guns)

I'm working on the video this weekend and will upload as soon as I'm finished

The focus on the weapons systems sounds like a lot of fun.
Looking forward to the second video.
