Catchy title.
The graphics for the title screen are really cool but the actual gameplay screenshots don't look so great.

I love that there are games coming out that offer same system multiplayer. This game looks like it could be fun but the four player video was a little confusing, since only two people were playing.

Has anyone played this yet? Have you played the original Slug wars?

All of the pictures show 4-player games. Can be played with only one person?

How is it different from Slug Wars?

What do you think in general?

Thanks.

I didn't purchase it and I never played Slug Wars.

From the game description above:

"* Over 50 single player and multiplayer levels through 5 new environments"

It seems the game have a single player (Campaign) and multiplayer modes.

Maybe, maybe I purchase it later today.

I’ve just purchased it and played 3 Campaign (single player) levels.

First, I had to reboot the iPad because the game was crashing a lot. Everything’s fine after.

Graphics are good. Sounds OK. Gameplay is interesting and you really have to use as much weapons as possible. Not much strategy so far. The end of a level is slow paced. You’re almost winning but another opponent is there just to slow down the inevitable. I think the end could be a lot faster. Anyway, I’m playing level 3 so maybe I’m missing something.

I wish there was a visual feedback when you tap a road to place a slug. However, you get use to it.

I didn’t try multiplayer yet.

So far a good game. Is it worth? Well, too soon to answer that but right now I feel like $3.99 would be better considering the App Store price tags.
