It reminds me of an old Commodore 64 game but can't remember which. A bit Spelunker too. Looks interesting. Long term value not sure. The sentry thing reminds me of Metal Gear Solid PS1.

I've been looking forward to this one for a while.
And I have to say, something about the visuals and gameplay remind me of Helsing's Fire, with a dose of Bomberman.

I've been following this one. Hope it goes Universal eventually, despite the devs thinking it should be iPad exclusive.

The game menus, campaign, map editor, and a bunch of other stuff didn't fit onto the iPhone sized screen. I haven't decided if I will do an iPhone version yet. Time will tell!

Hope everyone has fun playing the game!!
