Looks neat, but the video I saw only showed tilt controls, which I am not fond of.

I think, in screenshot 5, there areas bottom left & right, for touch controls?

Dang it!

Now that you pointed this out, I am going to have to buy it

j/k

But I will probably buy this along with Caligo Chaser as soon as it is out.

I have an unresistable urge for Geometry Wars games on iPod.

So far I have Critical wave, Light Wars Geo, and others I cannot think of right now.

Multiplayer Co-Op? Sounds good, though I wonder whether that would be global or local.

Got this today, along with Critical Wave. Both are very good--I prefer this one, I think.

Controls can be tilt, touch, or a combination of both. There are a few different gameplay modes, including a difficult campaign mode and various survival types.

Graphics are vibrant and generally excellent--a mix of Isotope and GeoFighter styles.

And this game was made by a 15-year old? Damn. I am both impressed and depressed by this fact.

Each time I had a break today I came back to look at the video again (there's a few more on youtube incidentally), and the more I like it. Written by a 15-year old too... damn... now I really feel my age

I'll probably pick this up in a day or two - but I'm hoping the developer comes to say hi.

I am the developer

My name is Manuel Martínez-Almeida and
I‘m fifteen years old. I have developed this and other games, but AbstractWar 2.0, which I am most proud.
I’m an independent game developer and have always loved video games.
Soon I am going to post some promo codes in this forum.

If you want ask something or suggest some enhancements, please you post it here.
Also if you notice some bug in the game, you can explain in this topic or in contact section of http://manucorporat.wordpress.com

I hope you like AbstractWar 2.0.
