While I normally shy away from anything tactical or strategic that doesn't also try to trick me that I'm playing them on a Mac/PC in the late 90s (complexity- and variety-wise. Minus the awkward attempts at early 3D graphics and bikini-mail harridans), I'm glad I did not let Battledots aggressively bright and shiny warning colour exterior frighten me off like any old, near-sighted app jungle predator.

Battledots is simpler than hardcore strategy titles for the platform, more sophisticated than most casual takes on real-time strategy genres, and dominates the space in between with flair. Highly polished, pretty, smart and extremely frantic, but most of all a nearly perfect expression of how to build games for the simple end of the mobile paradigm.

Also, for those of you who believe that monetization make the game, no IAP in sight. The in-game shop offers fun powers that are only purchased with in-game earnings. New dots are unlocked through campaign progression. Oh, and there are alternate backgrounds that you distinctly cannot purchase with any known real-world currency.

I've yet to try online multiplayer. But I cannot possibly see how it could be less fun that the very fun single player campaign. I CAN see how it could be five times the awesome.

Still not certain this really is for me, or how much I'll play it over a long course of time, but this much fun for a dollar? Chair might have a few (hundred) points.

Since the Multiplayer is cross-platform, (that you can play against your friends even if they have Android or WP8) GameCenter was unfortunately no option for the multiplayer part. And for the leaderboard we also choose a service which is multi-platform compatible.

But if there is a high demand we could add GameCenter Leaderboard in addition to the current one with an future update to the game.

I easily dismissed this game at first glance, but after reading your post, I'll take a dive and buy this baby...

Has this game been released either in some other form and/or on some other platform? I think I played it or something very similar before.
