**************************
TIPS
**************************
- Use class 1 mechs to collect AP from the green crystals. You can pile mechs on a patch of crystals to speed up your AP collection.
- Build units quickly and take over as many green crystal patches to out gain your opponents.
- Mechs are low cost in AP to create so they are good against shooting down ships.
- Tanks are good at destroying land units with splash damage. They hold up well against a fleet of mechs.
- Ships are good at taking out tanks since tanks cannot shoot at ships.
- Use your Mothership! Move your Mothership closer to the front line so you can deploy units into battle quickly.
- Use a variety of units in a group to complement each of their strengths and weaknesses.

Slide To Play Review:

Pixel Stream LLC, the creators of Leaf Bound has released Armada Galactic War.

Armada is a 3D online multi-player miniature RTS (Real Time Strategy) designed specifically for the iPhone, iPod touch. The game is built specifically to play online against other live players. It is designed to host quick intensive battles lasting 5-10minutes. Quick battles leaving you wanting for more!

There are no requirements of building any buildings to obtain certain units. Only thing required is collecting resources from the crystals to gain AP to launch units directly into battle instantly.

The game's strategy is based on how good you are at positioning your units and countering attacks/launching attacks.

There are three types of unit classes:
Mechs, Tanks and Ships.

Mechs are good at taking down a fleet of ships since they are cheaper to make and you can deploy more vs ships.

Tanks are good at countering a fleet of mechs but cannot hit ships.

Ships are good at countering tanks since they cannot hit ships.

Each unit has different attack power, hit points, attack reload speed, mobility speed, armor and sight range.

Positioning of your units play a huge role in the game.

We are going to release an update for offline play when we get enough people on our servers. We will see how fast the servers fill up. If our system can't match you in a game with another live player we assign you against the AI

Ha don't worry, we designed this specifically for the mobile device so the game play mechanics are very simple. It's a game that you can pick up after playing one battle. We have a tutorial that goes over everything you need to know.

Can you give me the price?
How many unit types are there, and are there counters between them? Is micromanaging of troops possible like red conquest? How's resource gathering?How's the server running?

The introductory price is 99cents for a very limited time. We'll be raising the price once we have a good number of players on the servers.

There are 3 races and each race has 10 unit types (3 mech types, 3 tank types, 3 ship types, 1 mothership).

Tanks are good counters against mechs, ships are good counters against tanks, and mechs are good counters against ships.

Yes, you can micromanage the troops similar to Starcraft. In fact, if you're good at micromanaging your troops, you'll be more effective in taking out your opponents.

Resource gathering is simple - just move any of your mechs to a resource patch. They will glow to let you know they're gathering resources.

We have central servers running. The game will take care of connecting to our server automatically.
