I've now played three different games with the same Oryx space-themed tileset in the last couple of weeks (most recent one being this 2015 7day RL contender: http://7drl.org/2015/03/17/rogue-spa...sh-bugs-fixed/). They are nice though, i've got to admit. Too bad this isn't a roguelike.

Hey guys! Developer here! I didn't realize TouchArcade was going to go ahead and create a forum thread for me... that was upcoming on my TODO list.

Thanks for the kind words NOEN and PeteOzzy! I hope you enjoy the game!

zen_mode: Wow, I didn't realize so many people were using that art set. It looks like my game's pretty different from those, at least.

Anyway, if anyone has any questions or comments, feel free to direct them my way!

For those interested in this sortta thing, I wrote a pretty comprehensive post-mortem about the game. It goes through a lot of the development details. Maybe it's somebody's cup of tea?

Glad I stumbled on this forum post. The App Store has some serious discovery issues...

I had some fun with this one today. The first few levels i did were really easy but the difficulty ramped up when i met the alien mastermind. Took me multiple retries and some squad editing. Eventually i beat it with one unit who was down to 10 health. :P

Any large store is going to have discovery issues. I was hoping to get some exposure through other venues, but so far it's been pretty quiet.

Yea, that guy's rough. I didn't intend for him to be quite so lethal, but after playtesting for a while, I liked the tension he brought to the battles.

This sounds interesting. Turn based battler like the battles of an SRPG? More imps would be welcome.

What's the charging model? Is there an unlock of some kind? Ads?
