Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I just watched the video on the dev's website: http://www.legendaryempire.com/

I might TOFTT later. It looks interesting. Like with most games like this, the AI will have a lot to do with how good it is.

Overall it looks pretty good - not sure why, but the white tiles bug me though - seems they could have done something a tad fancier.

I do really like how the different sized units actually are different sizes.

As already mentioned, AI will make or break this game.

Who the heck is MikeGenius?

He has only three posts altogether, two of which are exactly the same but in different threads and he has been giving one star ratings.

Also, from what is seen in the screenshots, I'd say it's looking pretty good, even though I do realize the AI is crucial in a TBS.

Nope, sorry - that was directed toward the TOFTT question, not the game.
It is insulting for the usual TOFTTers when somebody asks for a TOFTT.

I understand that you find it "annoying", but I can't agree that it's "insulting". Personally I like it when people say, effectively, "I'm interested in this but I'm not going to buy it right now, if anyone else gives it a try I'd like to hear what you think." It makes people more inclined to give it a try when they know other people are interested.

I'm glad to buy apps on a lark but unfortunately I'm usually doing something else and not going to take the time to play it right away and report back. Sometimes I wish I could buy it for someone else so they can report back!
