Default Rocket Patrol - A new strategy card / puzzle game from GRL Games

Rocket Patrol is a turn based card / puzzle strategy hybrid game. You play cards to advance in a galactic space race. The first to travel 350 lightyears wins. Along the way you can play red delay cards on your opponent to slow them down, or purple power cards which place puzzle obstructions in front of your opponent before they can continue play. Rocket Patrol will be out for the iPad from GRL Games 4-4-13!

Now THIS piques my interest! 2 quick questions: will it support GC multiplayer, and is it based on a physical game?

Rocket Patrol uses GC turn based multiplayer to play.

We played a lot of an old game called "Touring" but it would have been too slow to play turn by turn over the Internet so we took inspiration from the idea of a race game with delay / play cards, added puzzles I remembered from my childhood like my Merlin toy and Mastermind and made those cards you could play too. In the end, the game can only be virtual, but the inspiration is definitely there from Touring.
