AquaWars: First Strike Preview - Beta Testers Needed!

Hey everyone, I just recorded the first gameplay video of my new game AquaWars.

It is a retro styled shooter, but not in the traditional sense as you control a ship destroying submarines going across your path. The game is pretty far into development, but still has a ways to go.

I am looking for beta testers with either iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 4.1 or higher. You can sign up with the Test Flight form here: http://tflig.ht/enMnwr

Youtube link | Pop Up

Planned Features:
  • Co-op Survival Mode (Via Game Center)
  • Mission based levels
  • Huge bosses (The one at the end of the video is a mini-boss)
  • Powerups
  • Persistent ship upgrades
  • iCade, Joypad support
  • iCloud syncing
  • **Hopefully - Airplay/external display support**

Looks like a fun game, reminds me of my first games that I spent hours playing so I can see the potential. I wonder hos much bigger the real bosses are going to get.

So I am planning on sending out the first beta tomorrow.

I still have few slots open, so you can still use the test flight link in the original post.

Just to let people know, beta testers who give good feedback will get their name in the credits, the game for free and a $10 iTunes gift card when the game is released.

Also some testers have signed up but have not registered a device. If you don't register by tomorrow I can include your device in the test. That's all for now! New screenshots should be here tomorrow!
