The appinfo pictures aren't loading for me, but I can see them via the iTunes link. Video works fine.

It actually looks pretty good. The slower paced action gives it a bit of a Cannon Fodder vibe, which is definitely a good thing. I'm just wondering if it can match the tactical gameplay a bit closer or if the whole game is closer to a dual-stick shooter.

It also mentions downloadable levels, so I'm wondering just how many are in the game by default and how these downloadable ones work exactly. It doesn't mention an editor, so do they mean updates, an online repository of developer-made levels we can choose from, IAP, or what?

This does look good. It says there's multiplayer, but there's no GC. Anyone know if multiplayer is only local?

I could not find any downloadable levels or IAP. It may be because it sometimes takes a little extra time for IAPs to show up for a new game. There's a tutorial level and two separate campaigns. I didn't actually unlock the campaigns yet, so I don't know how long they are.

There is online multiplayer through Polarbit servers. You need to create an account using a valid email address. Leaderboards and achievements seem to be handled via these same servers. No Game Center. No OpenFeint.

The game looks fun, but I'm bummed it doesn't have Gamecenter and use that for online multiplayer. Also I don't think the video shows the online multiplayer at all. How well does the online work?
