Says "not currently available in US store" from the ipad link. I tried searching for it too & nothing came up. Am I missing something? Anyone else get it to open?

It was there last night. I almost bought it. I wanted to wait for impressions first, though.

I bought it last night.
I've only played a couple games, but so far I like it.
The A.I. is a little on the easy side, and the camera controls need a work (there is no way to scroll the camera that I could find)- but I think it's a great game.

Hi all,

And thanks for buying our game !!!!

Although due to a mistake on our part it should not have been released yet as we were going to wait until our website and facebook page were up and fully running hence why it is not available on the store at the moment - didn't realize that people had bought it in the few hours it as on sale - so thanks again.

So you have had a chance of a quick preview and many thanks for the nice comments.

Just to pick up on a few comments that I have seen, there is an animated controls section that explains the basic interface - but I'll cover it quickly here:

1) you can select a unit on your side and rotate around it
2) you can double tap anywhere on the board to move the camera
3) You can also pinch to zoom in and out
4) theres a camera reset button on bottom bar beside the stars (stars open options menu)

You can find out more info pictures and movies on our facebook page (WarChesst) and website (that still is not quite finished).

We currently have WarChesst ready for launch on iPhone / iPod and also on iPad for $0.99

However....

we also have a free version coming out for iPod and iPad - which is a special edition single level commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain - but please check the facebook page or website for more information. Should be ready for launch within the next 10 days!!
