App description: Play Neo Wars now! A sci-fi node-based RTS game with deep tactical gameplay.

Land your harvester on a planet to gather its resources. Connect to an empty resource field to take it over, and build an efficient distribution network between your harvesters. But beware, you are not alone.

Up to 3 enemy AI players battle with you for the last remaining harvester on the planet surface. Be smart and quick to achieve a glorious victory. Use different upgrades, buffs and debuffs to gain the edge over your enemies.

The game has a unique payment model, we call Free2Paid. With every IAP or watched ad, you not only get rewarding items in return, but fill up a bar that unlocks an ad and IAP-free version of the game.

Thank you for your feedback. We are currently looking into the problem of the stuck loading screen some of you experience. We hope to release a fix in the next 48 hours. Thank you for your patience.

Hey all, I am one of two developers of NeoWars.

We are looking forward to your feedback! Let us know what you think.

We have heard back from a few people, whic have problems with iOS Version 9.2. The game crashes after beating a level. Would be great if anybody, who has that problem could report back. We think its an issue with broken GameCenter of iOS Version of 9.2, but we are not sure. We have tested on 9.2, 9.3.x, but could not reproduce the issue on our devices.

Interesting payment model. I hope the risk of trying something new pays off for you.
The game feels extremely polished and I haven't experienced any problems.

I played the first two galaxies. Getting better but this special planets are quiet taff. 😊

NeoWars, looks excellent!

Hi Matthias and co,

This looks excellent, we work with a lot of mobile developers and publishers and it's nice to see a gameplay idea that is actual original! How are you monetizing the game at this point?

Hey Sam,

thank you .

The game features a unique payment model we call Free2Paid. With every IAP or watched ad, players not only get rewarding items in return, but fill up a bar that unlocks an ad and IAP-free version of the game. New balancing kicks in, the game now behaves like you would have initially paid for it.
