My video overview

Ok created an un-bias overview of the game (I hope) and put it up on you tube. Just for anyone that want to see the game play and see if it's for them. Hope that helps

Picked up as it looks like a great game and I really like the dev's transparency and honesty in the app description!

If the app is closed and you open it with a turn notification, it will open into the match when the app opens.

If the app is already open (say, you're in the middle of another match) you will get the standard banner notification.
Happiness multiplied! Now, if we could only have those custom notification sounds, and simply have the notification center show up on the lockscreen (instead of the current, dreary lockscreen solution), iOS 5 would be the system of my dreams

This guide is actually very good, and brought my attention to some methods and features I have not picked up during my first days of playing. And I think it might have convinced quite a few fencers to purchase SO.

/signed. Perhaps more devs could benefit from similar communication.

Okay, so definitely enjoying this one, although the first few games seem to just be throwaway learning experiences - a full featured walkthrough/faq is definitely required here.

Humble Suggestion #1: For research, the help says that the color has something to do with whether or not that research is going to be available. For the colorblind amongst us, it's impossible to tell what that meaning is when you hit red/green. Some sort of shape, along with color, to indicate the status of research availability would be *phenomenally* helpful.

Great game but:
- could you make buttons hotspot a bit bigger? I struggle to select options on iPhone.
- is it just me or auto-turn doesn't stop when one of my colonies finish producing something?
- is it possible to look at planet bonuses (i.e. how many food prod science per worker) once colonized?

Most of them have bigger touch areas than they look. Maybe if you could send me a PM with specific ones you find yourself having the most trouble with?

If you set a colony to a focus, it will not automatically stop turn compression.
If you manually specify the build queue, then it should automatically stop.

If you are experiencing behavior different than that, please let me know and we'll look into it.

After colonization, in the planet view, you can tap on any of the status lines.

There is not currently a way to get at the info prior to colonization.
