I've just watched a video and read the description, yet I still have no clue how your game is played. This is a problem.

Then you need to dip your fingers in some mayo and smear it all over your iDevice screen for greater REALISM!

@Misguided, @FPE thanks for the feedback -- just added a screenshot from the "how to play" part of the game.

I'd encourage you to try it -- obviously -- you play as the red player (with multiple "heads") and by moving them around the play surface you accumulate strenth and body tiles. You can take opponent tiles when you have greater strength than them.

Each AI (each a different colour) play differently -- a bit like Pac Man -- the green one's body hungry, the black one's chaotic, the pink one's a coward and so on.

The simple rule set and mechanic lead to some super-fun emergent play sessions. Will be doing some gameplay videos over the next few days.

I encourage you to add a couple of sentences to your app description that explain how to play and add that screenshot.

So, this is a twitchy, action sort of game?

Looks pretty neat - might even pick it up at the intro price despite the fact that I don't have an iPad (yet... )

PS> Really makes me wish for an iOS version of Worms?

@Misguided -- yea, will do that. Ta. There is twitchy action, big also a good amount of strategy and puzzle solving. Levels often have many solutions -- really tough twitchy ones or thought out strategies that aren't so obvious but rely less on precise action timing.

@FPE -- cheers, glad you liked it.

It is a little gem. A rts hex board game .... But I still do not fully get it. Like why are my heads sometime constrained in thevdirection of movements when there are no obstacles.
