Any chance that you can add an extra speed? (Like a 4x etc)

Looking forward to seeing what else is coming too.

As I'm looking at one of the enhanced maps right now, the richer colors made it look quite sharp and detailed without a doubt.
Yeah, I look forward to a new ipad retina version! Can't wait!

Will think about it, the challenge is to optimize it so it runs smoothly even under 4x speed -- when every special enemy unit consumes 2x memory more or less due to their unique skills.

Or, the new gameplay would never be monotonous anymore so you won't even need to speed up

What's coming next --

We have received a couple of reviews saying the first few levels are a bit dull & tedious, well, now we are looking at the game again a month later since its release and we realize the early tutorial levels could indeed use some improvements. We have buried the cool features way too deep in the late levels.

So, in the next update we will improve the gameplay, try to strike a balance between challenge, accessibility and most importantly, FUN, and we might include some new levels too if things go smoothly.

And big thanks to all the gamers who have offered valuable suggestions, especially Erik!
Sounds awesome, very much looking forward to it, FWIW, you guys could consider making the levels a bit shorter!

And what a great trailer you got there!

Making the levels a bit "concise" and challenging at the same time is def our top priority, thanks for the advice!
