If you're a developer, and you're making a game that you damn well know the app store is littered with that have much higher production values than yours, why bother?

That's the question I'd like to pose to a good 60% of app developers.

Man, I hate to bash a game, because I understand the work that goes into it. But dang! It looks like a bunch of pictures were found across the internet & pasted together to make a game.

Of course you have... but sorry, I think all of you haven't played the game so far. Which makes your comments quite worthless.

Game Impressions

I agree the graphics seem less than stellar but there are many games out there where the gameplay totally overcomes the visual aspect and maybe with some downloads they will improve them as many popular games have done over time. The graphics actually look nicer in game as well but still not professional.

The reason I'm stating this is I got the game and it's really good. If you like The Wars (graphics were never that great) or Cartoon Wars (graphics were never that great), then I think you will like this one. It's more like The Wars but there's more strategy, offense and upgrades. If you ever played The Wars, you know you sit there most of the time not spending money hoping your defense lasts long enough to get the special weapon - rinse, repeat wait until space age.

In this game you can go totally offense if you wish and there are many units and many upgrades. The upgrades reminds me of Age of Empires. You can research certain improvements to each unit and research special units. So, there's lots of decision making and strategy. Plus there are four nations with varying pluses and minuses.

I wasn't expecting much based on the screenshots, but I was blown away at how deep it actually was. Plus it moves at a quick pace - the computer doesn't slowly come at you - they are in your face and keep coming. Luckily you can totally customize the settings pre game - like how much much money you and they start with. It's a game I'll be playing for quite some time.

In summary:
If you love games that look great yet have bad gameplay don't get this.

If you buy games for the gameplay and can find it in your heart to ignore the unpolished graphics, you should get this.

If you trash games you know nothing about - you are a tool.
