Oh heck yes. The wife and I love the board game. Looking forward to having this on the go, especially with all of the added features like the campaign mode.

Description

**** Now available at a special price $4.99/4.49€ for the first two weeks! ****

================================================== =================

Galaxy Truckers Wanted!

Can you build a space ship from sewer pipes? Are you willing to face meteors, pirates, and smugglers? Can you fly a five-engine ship after four engines have been destroyed? Then you are our kind of trucker!

We offer good pay, a xenologically diverse crew, and a dynamic work environment. Bonuses paid for prompt delivery.

Sign up to be a galaxy trucker today!

================================================== =================

Galaxy Trucker, the award-winning board game by Vlaaďa Chvátil, is landing on your iPad! Build space ships, dodge meteors, and fight off bad guys, all in a quest to be the trucker with the most cosmic credits at the end of the game.

This digital version can be played with up to three other players, either online or on one shared iPad. A turn-based building system designed especially for this app allows pass-and-play or asynchronous online play. You can also play real-time games online using the traditional building method of grabbing stuff and attaching it to your ship as fast as you can.

For solo play, the app offers a dozen AI personalities and a special campaign mode in which new players can learn the game and experienced players can discover new challenges. The non-linear storyline offers hours of trucking fun as you meet quirky characters and explore the Galaxy.

So head to the space station, grab the best components, and build a great-looking ship ... ideally one that can reach its destination. You'll need cannons to fight off bad guys, shields to protect you against meteors, engines to rocket ahead of the other players, and lots and lots of cargo containers to hold all the goods you pick up along the way. It's time to become a galaxy trucker!


================================================== =================

Features:

- epic trucking campaign written by Vlaada

- online quick duel

- asynchronous or real-time online play

- multiplayer single-tablet pass-and-play

- 12 AI personalities for solo play

- real-time or turn-based building

- autopilot for faster flight

- 81 achievements

- no in-app purchases

================================================== =================

The timing of the release may be strange, but for $5 it doesn't get any more instabuy than this. This is definitely a release that will make iPhone/iPod users very jealous.

@Strivemind : Hi! Thanks for the nice words. We hope you will also enjoy the new turn-base mode. It is something we wanted to add for the ones who are stressed by the time pressure

Will this be popping up on the U.S. App Store at 11pm tonight? Or should we expect a release later in the week?
