Fun RTS game. Thanks for making it; however the controls are a bit awkward for me, like having to tap to zoom in and out (I prefer to pinch to zoom). Also the scrolling seems to float at times.
This crashes alot using 5.0 on my iPod. Can you look into fixing this?

Favorite mobile RTS: Autumn Dynasty, Amoebattle & Red Conquest
Great TBS/SRPGs: Wesnoth, Battle Academy, Kingturn, Pantheon Cycle, Dungeon Crawlers, SW&E, Viking Lords, Metal Brigade Tactics, Tactical Soldier, Ravenmark, Tactics Maiden and Banner Saga

It's an ambitious indie attempt at real time strategy, a much under-developer genre on iOS. I've enjoyed it so far albeit it is a bit unpolished. For free it's definitely worth your time and not a bad deal at $0.99. Here's to these truegamer sticking around and fine tuning some of what is presented here.
