@Paul99: Manners, please.
That's just the generic list from the Appstore, which doesn't tell you anything as Apple still doesn't allow to exclude devices.

Anyways, question for those who played already:
How hectic is the realtime part? I'm getting too old for this high-frequency RTS stuff (think Starcraft), prefer something slower-paced I like that combat is turn-based, big plus in my book.

Not hectic at all. I'm on first planet of three I think. It looks like there is a time limit for each planet and everything you do in base takes time. Just make sure you don't throw your units away willy nilly cause they cost time to rebuild.

Thanks, CrayonWarrior. Looks like I'll give it a twirl then.

Only played the first couple of missions but it's very slick. Looks great and positively exudes quality.

Am I already allowed to say it's crying out for multiplayer? Can I? Please?

Only had time to play the tutorial mission, good first impression.
The only thing that has me a bit confused is the Action Points (AP). I think you need one for every action you do, but I didn't pay attention if that's only for moving or also for shooting.

And of course I have to complain about some UI stuff the drag&drop for the special attacks does not work too well, I misfired several times. Need to doublecheck if tap to fire works too.

Yeah no need to drag, tap works fine. Not sure about ap, but you use it for most actions, so it's a fine balance between fighting and getting new units into battle.

I had the same question related to either how hectic and overwhelming is the game to play. I like the idea of RTS but usually prefer more strategic and not fast paced RTS.

When I asked this question I didn't ask if it can be played on a particular device. I want to know how does it play on a plus device! The user experience! Maybe the buttons too small? Maybe this and that!
