NITROPIA - Real time strategy/Tower Defense game

Hi everyone, just a small intro - Dawn Patrol Games is a small indie studio in Sri Lanka. We are currently working on our 3rd game - NITROPIA which is due for release at the end of August on iOS first and Android shortly after. Nitropia starts out feeling like a Tower Defense game but quickly evolves to Real Time Strategy that has you playing both offense and defense against an enemy that will actively seek to break down your defenses and raid your bases. Plus you get to destroy their defenses and bases in Base Battle mode.

Currently the game has:

- 15 unique levels
- 6 Hero RIGs (mechs) with 6 corresponding Commanding Officers, each with unique abilities that cater to different play styles
- Free roaming units, resource collection and unit management
- 12 building combinations for defense and offense
- 3 Game modes: defense, survival arena, base battle - that tests your offensive, defensive and hero management skills
- 20 unique enemy units and 4 different enemy towers to overcome

Everything in the game is in the final stages of balance and polish. The sound as well is being updated and normalized and not everything is final or has a sound attached to it.

If you are interested in playtesting, please PM me or reply this topic with your e-mail address and we can get you signed up on Testflight. We would really appreciate the feedback.

A small in-house trailer we did for Casual Connect San Francisco 2014 where we will be showcasing the game next week. (A polished trailer with all the bells and whistles is in the works)

Sounds silly, but for some reason I can't put normal hyperlinks to our testflight or facebook. Just shows up as the code and not the link. Any ideas?

That may be related to limitations due to your low post count. Eli mentioned this on the most recent TA podcast.
