Holy crap, it seems legit. I didnt realize it's from D3 Publisher. Arent they the same guys who gave us Puzzle Quest?

Im just on the title screen and saw their logo, and on it says Preview Edition? That got me confused, but i might find out soon enough...

I love Puzzle Quest, the first one is my favorite and I had kind of hoped they would eventually bring Galactrix to iOS but that hasn't happened yet. Hopefully this one is good.

I would love to see any screen shots since it's currently not available in the US.

This is turning out to be good, but it is freemium. It's got timers to heal up damaged heroes, but i think it can be remedied by having more heroes so you can just swap them out while they heal.

The IAPs are very expensive though.

EDIT: basically, wounded heroes heal over time, but you can still use them even when they are wounded. I guess that's much better than the usual "cant play while on a timer" like in most games.
