App description: Armageddon Wars is a turn-based tactical war game, set in a future apocalyptical Earth. You control a battalion of Ultratanks, giant robotic war machines. You are out numbered and out gunned by the enemy, only by using careful strategy can you win.

You are EURCOM operative #52546-3, charged with leading a EURCOM battalion against PACT forces who have setup production facilities in the ruins of a city.
The objective to capture or destroy all of PACT's bases and gain control of the city. There are 7 different sectors to fight through, each getting progrssively more difficult.
To complicate matters EURCOM's supply lines have been cut off. To gain raw materials for construction you need to salvage destroyed tanks from the battlefield, using the Proteus combat engineering vehicle. EURCOM's base can only manufacture relatively weak units, however if you manage to capture an enemy base you can build more powerful units. This will, in fact, prove to be crucial, because in some sectors PACT have deployed very powerful forces.

Be warned: The AI is both intelligent and unpredictable. It can counter-attack at any point and employs a scorched earth policy.

--------------------------------------
New in Version 2.0

* New final scene: Battle for control of 10 bases in the vast Industrial complex.
* PACT now has repair units and EURCOM has possibility to manufacture Goliath units.
* Units can level up - increasing armour each time they are fully repaired.
* Better game balance. Game difficulty adjusts automatically according to players progress.

This looks pretty cool. Graphics look quite nice. UI seems a bit unusual, but not necessarily bad. Only questionable things that stand out are the quest text (looks very odd - like someone selected all of the characters and now they're all highlighted), the robot/mech face giving the quest in that same screen and at the end of the video (looks kinda cheesy), and the fact that the movement grid isn't visible - but hopefully that's an option you can turn on/off. Those are more or less minor issues though.

Hi guys,
I didn't think anyone would notice my game
Thanks for your comments. It's good to get feedback, I will fix that text and try to make the terminator guy less cheesy
Yes, there is a grid option, which is switched off in the screenshots.
There is a free windows demo if you you want to try (http://astronautz.com/download.html).
Also, I can give promo codes, but you'll have to wait until the newest update goes through.

I'd love a promo code - I'll definitely review in return.
Glad to see you here responding to comments and open to feedback!

One other thing - the text in the UI panels looks a bit hard to read because of the texture in the panels. Maybe tone down the texture a bit? Or else add some kind of highlight/glow/color change to the text to make it easier to read. Then again, that's just from the screenshots - maybe it'll look ok in the actual game.

That's a good idea. I realise now that I made some of the fonts too small.
