The graphics and Internet multiplayer are currently being worked on.

A few Touch Arcade members are now wanted to test and provide feedback on the single player play. When multiplayer is working, more beta-testers will be needed.

Edit:
Thank you everyone. I have enough testers for now. It's really great to see so many responsive senior members of Touch Arcade. I really, really appreciate the help. Added title page screen shot. Added link to home page.

email sent and also can we have some kind of chat system where we can talk to each other and/or issue orders like player so and so drop units here or player so and so attack/defend here and this would give you more strategy and maybe a player can issue orders that the other players follow but he can't play in it because he's the general Also can we chose our air units and maybe we can play as ground units? Also can you upgrade the visuals to something like Chopper or so please because a lot of games at the App Store is bought by looks and good icon designs.

Chat: The plan is to have in game player to player voice chat.

Units: The player controls the helicopter and orders ground forces.

Visuals: The plan is to add colorful backgrounds. Depending upon when the game is released, the first version may or may not have updated sprites.

thank you for the answer and that was quick! Also how many players are allowed into one game? I would prefer it to be 2 to 2.

I like this DS game that was somewhat a remake of a classic like Armor Alley. It is an under-rated DS game.

The game is for 1 to 4 players:
1 person vs 1 computer
1 person vs 1 person
2 people vs 1 person and 1 computer
2 people vs 2 people

Just a reminder, multiplayer isn't working yet.
