I was literally just writing up a post when I saw this thread pop up Here, have a banner:



Space Station looks and plays FANTASTICALLY on the iPad - let us know what you think! We've also got a head-to-head multiplayer mode coming soon on both platforms, which will be sweet.

FUTURE SENSE - A brain-bending Time Travel adventure OUT NOW!
SENTINEL 4: DARK STAR - Probably the best Tower Defence in the Galaxy
TRANSPORT TYCOON - The definitive version of the classic business sim

I've been very surprised at the lack of iPad TD games. Happy to see a new one come out. Already own Sentinel 1 & 2 and bought DLC for one of them, can't wait to try this out.

is Multiplayer head-to-head just split screen? So it is Multiplayer on one iPad?

It's not set in stone yet, but we're looking at a mode where each player has a station on their own device (pad/pod/phone), and spends resources to sick attackers on their opponent's station. Should be sweet

Glad to hear everyone's enjoying the HD release. The extra screen real estate really makes a difference.

I have this game on my iPhone and love it. Any plans on adding new weapons or upgrading the current ones? I love how each weapon is so specialized... Good for some units but useless for others.. It makes for a nice variety of towers.

However, I get to the point where the lazer towers are pretty useless and I'm just building missle and rail towers and selling all my lazers. It would be nice if a fully upgraded lazer tower was stronger not only in range but also in damage.
