This is the new multiplayer focused version of Aliens versus Humans. It came out tonight. It also includes the first few missions from the main game (the rest are unlockable by IAP or just buy the main game). Anyway thought this deserved its own thread since all the multiplayer stuff is new.

I have several PvP games waiting for others to accept. You can "Play Now" via Game Center and it'll match you up with one of them.

It's going to be a while before I'm up to speed enough to play online. Still, there were a lot of folks hyped for this... I think it just sort of flew under the radar. IF I weren't permabanned (I guess that's the reason?) from posting on articles I'd post something on the new releases article since they completely missed this game coming out.

Silly question, are the Missions in this tweaked from the Missions (Tutorial) in the main game? I played the first single player mission here and then last night played some of the main game and the overall layout of the land was different as were the aliens I fought and their general positions on the map. Is it that the missions are somewhat random, there were there tweaks between the games, both, or what?

Anyway, excellent job on both games. Given my slow pace with games this deep, it's going to take a while to get up to speed since I only get serious time to game at night (job, wife, 3 kids, etc). Still, I'm looking forward to digging deep into both games.

Every board is randomly created every time as well as alien placement. We always thought this was pretty good as you can replay the entire game and it will be different.

I don't believe that the original app has multiplayer.

@iPadisGreat, if you have Aliens versus Humans: The Onslaught, then you have the training missions part already. Aliens versus Humans: Missions was added so people have an option to play for free to try out the game. However, AvH: Missions has PvP that you can play for free. It takes up < 32MB of space.
