I think I'll check this out. No visible IAP and advertising that there's no ads in the game is a plus.

This is pretty cool, reminds me of warlords on the atari2600.

That's what was running through my mind when I saw the name and screen shots.

Thanks guys! Warlords was a big inspiration for sure. I loved that game. I'm thinking of making an update for Overlords this weekend. Planning an easy and hard mode with hard being equal to how it is now. Also thinking about adding the ability to detect a second touch to power down the shield temporarily for a quick reflection instead of having to lift your finger from the screen as it is now.

I'd like that option as I'd much rather just bounce it back than keep hold of it with each hit.

Ah but by grabbing it you can toss it in any direction you like. I did originally have it that way with a second touch initiating the grabbing/holding, but the devices often got confused by which finger was doing what if they came too close together. It was a lot easier to play using just one finger.

version 1.2 will be coming in about 10 days. It will have Easy and Hard difficulty levels for sure. I got that all programmed up now, just testing the new leaderboard, etc. Hard mode will be the same as the current version and Easy mode is a lot easier and relaxed.
