Just a quick side note, this may or may not come to the US tomorrow. My sources indicate a soft NZ launch, but I've been wrong before.

Either way, downloading the crap out of it!

It's free, and it's looking like the better Borderlands Legends.

Cant wait for this. The IAP scares me.

*sigh*

I'd gladly pay 3$ and have a full game rather than putting up this this.

Geeeez.

I was SO excited about this, too.

I would've gladly paid a Battleheart price for this, with good reason - it's basically the same game with a freemium reskin.

I love the humor and the sci-fi feel, but energy... no.

iAP i Ain't Purchasing


Edit: and the saddest thing is, it's A Good Game, minus the freemium hooks. (with good reason too, it's pretty much Battleheart)

Edit 2: I take that back. On the ancient iPhone 4, I get strange micro-lag spikes that interfere with movement controls, it takes 30 minutes to learn a new passive skill, and after playing 4 missions I still need to wait 15 minutes before I can play ONE extra mission. I'm almost tempted to take back everything good I've said up till now, but instead... I'll go play Battleheart again and have fun PLAYING the game.

Ruining a what looked like and sounded (via the description) like a good game before they even released it worldwide. Good one Devs . Thanks for the heads up on iaps and energy consumption.

Battleheart is amazing, as far as I know IAP-free and is a large source of "inspiration" for this game. If Sanuku posts a video, have a look at the tutorial mission. Those that have played Battleheart will instantly recognize it.

Hell, that tutorial mission is becoming a genre of its own with how many Battleheart clones have copied it directly.
