App description: Download the @FreeAppADay.com Store App and wish for more top rated apps like Strikefleet Omega to be featured on FAAD!

Strikefleet Omega may very well be the best strategy game available for phones and tablets right now. - EGM

It's a must-download for anyone who enjoys games that require fast reflexes and quick thinking, or just wants to have a blast while making sure humanity sticks around for a while. - Gamezebo

From Harebrained Schemes, creators of Apple's Benchmark Game of 2011, CRIMSON STEAM PIRATES, comes STRIKEFLEET OMEGA!

*** Earths finest fleet, Humanitys final hour. ***

Earth has been destroyed by the Hive Queen and her Brood and you command Humanity's last defender, Strikefleet Omega. As Omega's Admiral, you are charged with a desperate mission--find the Queen and stop her before she obliterates our remaining colonies.

Warping from star system to star system in your search, Strikefleet Omega struggles to survive wave after wave of enemy attacks while mining precious crystals that allow you to warp in reinforcements from the last remaining shipyard in the Armada.

Warp in reinforcements such as:

Starfighter Carriers launch fighter squadrons you control with a drag of your finger
Artillery Gunships fire devastating area-effect salvos with just a tap
Advanced Mining ships gather warp crystals faster and more efficiently
Bomber Carriers launch bomber groups to assault huge alien capital ships
Particle Projection Cannons destroy anything touched by the target line you drag

And a many, many moreincluding the devastating Death Blossom, which unleashes the full power of your command ship, destroying entire waves of enemies at once!

Join the Armada and take your place as the Admiral of Strikefleet Omega!

Epic space combat awaits!

Humanity depends on you!

If you hate IAP avoid.....I don't see why devs can't release both free to play and paid versions of a game, much like lite and full versions.
I would be all over a paid version of this game.

Because then no one would spring for the IAP. They would play the free version long enough to hit the pay wall then buy the full. Of course, human stupidity has exceeded my expectations in the past, so...

Anyway, I guess the impressions here save me a download. Though I might still try it for myself. Very much looks like another case of "what a shame."

Looks great, bu sounds repetitive: "waves and waves" of enemies to defeat?

I'll try it just because it's free and because it sounds a bit like Homeworld (for PC) - which was an amazing game.

Still, it reminds me of the Homeworld for PC which I found amazing, so I would love to try this, but it's currently not available in Norway.

The TA app gets me all excited, sigh.

I was going to post the same thing. It's nowhere to be found.

It's a shame that it appears to lean so heavily on the IAP model. I tend to simply avoid games that have you buy "gold" or "coins" or "space bucks" or whatever. I'd really prefer to just buy the game outright and get the whole game up front.

This is a real shame... The game looks great, but I tend to skip games that use (abuse?) the IAP model. I'd prefer to pay outright and get the whole game.
