Comets and Craters - Tower Defense

Hi Everyone,

We are pleased to finally reveal our upcoming "Comets and Craters" game. We have uploaded the website including a short promo video clip and will be adding screenshots and an instructional video over coming weeks as we work through the final stage of development.

Website: www.cometsandcraters.com

BACKGROUND STORY:

The year is 2120. The past decade has seen Earth become the target of increasing numbers of Comets and Meteorites in our solar system. A defence system known as "NeoGrid" has been created to redirect these Comets and Meteorites to crash in the secure compound of Space Station "Orion" based on the Moon. The rich mineral and crystal deposits left by these exploding Comets and Meteorites has provided a valuable fuel source and manufacturing material for Earth.

The abundance of such deposits has lured Alien attacks to Earth seeking to obtain our new resources for their own purpose. NeoGrid has been expanded to defend against such attacks, however an Ancient Alien race known as the Dracone has infiltrated NeoGrid's defence system and invaded Orion by assimilating our defence vehicles and personnel in an attempt to destroy our Space Station.

You are the last hope of defending Orion and Earth against total annihilation. You must use Orion's resources to construct Defence Towers and Mines. Upgrade the Space Station and Processing Docks to expand Orion's mining and defense tower capabilities to defeat the Dracone invaders and save the human race.


OVERVIEW:

Comets and Craters is a Tower Defense meets RTS style game. Collect Minerals and Crystals with your Transporters to purchase and repair your Towers, Docks and Space Station. Upgrade your Space Station to unlock new Towers and more powerful weapons. Increase your Crystal and Mineral processing capability by upgrading your Docks. Trade your Towers if your Mineral reserves become low. Post Highscores for Rookie, Veteran and Hero Modes with aim of becoming the Global Leader of Comets and Craters.

Just updated www.cometsandcraters.com with new images on the screenshots page after changing the terrain map and some tower upgrade graphics. Gameplay page has also been updated. I have also updated the Features list and Screenshot samples in my first post. Hopefully will be submitting soon. We will produce a full video once submitted to App Store and post on our website.

Not for version1.0 sorry. We have just the three Modes for initial release, however do have updates planned. Since you mentioned endurance mode, it is something we will look at.

EDIT: @Muzic <3, sorry I posted the same time. Thanks for the encouraging feedback, really appreciate it.

Thought I would advise that we just submitted Comets and Craters to the App Store for approval.

I have also added some more screenshots in my first post. Version 1.0 will include Scoreloop Leaderboard/Highscore system. We will upload instructional and gameplay Video's next week.
