SETTING

In a post-apocalyptic world, now a boundless ocean from the tropics to the Antarctic, two things are running short: oil and time. The last survivors, in their desperate desire to seize control of resources and to dominate the enemy, have started naval warfare that has turned the whole planet into one large battlefield. In these harsh and cruel times, oil is thicker than blood.

Capture, upgrade, and defend floating production platforms, while pumping the black gold with oil rigs to fuel your army. Be quick to send groups of naval and air units straight into the heat of battle.
Use different tactics to manage your military groups, as each map offers unique opportunities. Unlock super technologies and nuke the enemy into submission!

On PC it was a very impressive looking strategy game that also was also used as a tech demo for this new engine. It's a simplified take on rts so it should be right at home on iOS.

Yep, quite good on PC. The gameplay is very similar to Galcon style games.

Definitely. You can build defense towers at your bases, there are a few different unit types, and plenty of upgrades.

Looks very interesting, I will have to pick it up when it hits the store tonight.

Edit: This quote has me even more interested.
