Yes!!! I loved the first game and I'm definitely gonna be checking this one out. Didn't know they were making another one though.







Graphics-wise, it doesn't seem to be much of an improvement but there are new troops and abilities it seems! Looks great. Wonder when the release date is. It's probably gonna be $4.99

Woot! This looks so good. Loved the first one, I'm sure I'll love this one. Was hoping they would upgrade the graphics, but whatever.

Despite the fact that I'm super-hyped for this, I'm kinda disappointed that they chose to make an entirely new game instead of just updating the first one. I guess they needed money to cover costs or something but still. Well, the first one was full-featured and fun anyways.

the first one was released in September 08, so it's time to release the new one, and to make profit

PS just bought the original for 0.99

I have just recently finished the first one and I loved it - so much quality content. This is day one purchase for me. I only hope that it has turn by turn multiplayer la Uniwar, because I didn't like the first one's "multiplayer" at all. I wonder which unit(s) don't make a return, because allegedly it will be possible to import an army and continue using the units unique to th RoS1 in RoS2.
No info on release date, I suppose?

jeez, what is with all of these new turn based strategy games. Mecho wars, uniwar, rouge planet, now this. Will this become the next overpopulated game type in the app store? I knew something had take the position now that tower defense games are dying down.

Well, to be fair "this" has been here before them all. Reign of Swords was one of the first complex games on the Appstore and IMHO while not as pretty as the competition, is still one of the best.
Now they are finally finishing a long overdue sequel, which hopefully will have a turn-by-turn multiplayer like Uniwar's - the only feature that RoS 1 still lacks to leave other turn-based strategy offerings completely in the dust gameplay-wise, IMHO.

I remember they released a free version with 3 countries, just kept playing that one for so many months until I got it maybe 3 months ago.
