App description: Planet Wars is a top-down alien shooter with unique hand-drawn graphics, exciting action & strategy gameplay and completely customisable weapons!

Simple customisable controls make the game easy to pick up and play.

Play through the 10 mission campaign, with beautifully illustrated graphic novel style story panels. Missions range from offence to defence missions- upon which you can build a base to stop the alien horde.

There is also a survival mode with 6 maps, where you destroy wave after wave of incoming aliens. Compete with local and global (gamecenter) high scores.

Earn in-game money with every battle you fight, or even achievement you earn. You can spend on upgrading your weapons by buying different components. There are 7 different upgradable parts, this means you can completely customise your gun and armour to suit your style of play.

There are over 70 different items and components in the game with which to do this; including 17 core weapons which range from standard rifles to flame-throwers and rocket launchers: Make a fast firing sniper rifle with exploding rounds, or a deadly powerful shotgun with a bayonet for close encounters!

Features:

-Main 10 mission story-driven campaign, narrated by graphic novel style illustrations.

-Over 70 items/components with which to customise your armoury.

-6 Different survival maps with GameCenter high scores.

-27 GameCenter achievements which earn you in-game money.

-A mixture of action and tower defence style gameplay.

Seems like a wicked combination of tactical team based shooter and tower defense plus equipment upgrades and customization!

Any TOFTT?

Picked it up thanks to the feedback from gunxsword and syntheticvoid. Fully agree, controls do need some work, but the game is fun and has some potential. Please add a D-pad or maybe even a dual stick option.

Level 4 The Client...

GREAT LEVEL!!!
-------------------------------
Btw, a very out of character request:
IAP for credits! Yeah I know that the player earns them at a generous rate, but I can't help but wish there was some form of IAP that would allow me to amass quick credits and support ya devs at the same time

I do stress that there are currently no IAPs in the game and the credits are earned at a constant and generous rate.
-------------------------------
Oh and devs, thanks for the email reply! Love to see devs in the forums

However, I've encountered some crashes and bugs. Would you like the crash logs?
About the bugs, I encountered them a few times the medium sized four legged arthropods would just stop moving or taking damage from attacks, but would still attack when I get near them. Had to force restarts.

Ok, cool. I thought about maybe doing some weapon pack addons too, but I think I'm going to work on making it bug free before I start doing that.

Noted about the bugs.

Please change the sound effect for the classic rifle! It sounds like a rusty stapler and just gives me creeps!
Also, I find that returning to menu straight from a level or armory loses all credits earned. Is this a bug or intentional feature?

I just discovered a shotgun + splinter ammo = HORDE KILL!

Bought this and i'ts definitely enjoyable, but I am piping in on the "needs better controls". Personally I'd like to see dual sticks but I could live with a d-pad.
