I'm a sucker for retro and missile command-ish type games, just might have to grab this one!

Oh, and thanks for posting the video!

try the free Flash version

Yesterday I published a Flash lite version of the game.

Even if it doesn't offer all the features you can find in the iOS game, you'll be able to play a whole campaign from start to finish and to submit your scores to online leaderboards, so it's a perfect way to try the game for free.

PLAY NOW

Your game looks awesome! On a different note, how close is The Undergrounder to being released and will it be an iOS release? I ran across the video after watching Planet Defender and it truly blew me away!

That's hard to say at the moment because we had to put the development on hold to focus on BPPD, but I'm hoping in a release around Christmas.

I'm not totally sure if TU will ever be ported to iOS, but we're thinking about it.
