App description: Press reports from the My Army Propaganda Office:

"You'd be hard pressed to find a more frantic, heart pounding experience...it's a ball-breaking, time-sapping winner. 8/10" - Pocketgamer

Repeated attempts to top the high score inevitably follow, along with much tilting, swiping, gnashing of teeth and tearing of hair hallmarks of the just-one-more-go greats. The Observer Newspaper

"Plenty of fun and it keeps you coming back for more" - Arcadelife

Great entertainment value! Must-Have Award! - iReviewt

If youre looking for a simple yet fun iOS top-down shooter, especially one which has fairly obvious old-school leanings, then make sure you start downloading My Army now, its well worth a look. - Godisageek.com

I like the look of this (does it play anything like Cannon Fodder?) but the implied dependency on Facebook and a high probability of IAP have me being very cautious.

If the IAP gives me major advantages over my adversaries in combat then this game is absolutely not interesting:
1. I do not want to put money into a bottomless pit!
2. Even if I am willing to pay more money I wouldn't do it because winning over other players who do not pay for combat advantages, is a more or less worthless win and then my good leaderboard place is nothing which I could be proud of.

Hi all,

As promised here's an extended game-play video of the game. Hopefully, this'll give you more of a flavour of the game.

Any questions, I'm happy to answer them here.

We are considering it. If we do it it'll be a universal game, not a separate iPad version.

Looks good, but can this be played without using Facebook friends? If the game is dependent on using Facebook I won't be interested.
