This game is brilliant. I love the moving/shooting mechanic and the sound effects are great.
Ive only done the tutorial and the first few missions but I can see this being one of my fav turn based games on my iPod.

Thanks to this 4th of July free promotion, the game's getting about 500 new players every hour at the moment, so now is a great time to try out the LIVE online mode -- it's better in many ways than the normal (Asynchronous) online mode in that you get to watch your opponent's moves in true real time (even where they're looking!).

Also, if they quit out they surrender the game immediately, so there's always an end to the battle and none are left hanging unfinished like can happen with async games.

NOTE you can search for a Live online opponent in the background while playing the single-player Campaign or even asynchronous games - then as soon as it finds a live opponent it will auto-save and pop up and ask if you want to battle them.

Just ensure you click the "Online (Live)" tab in the Game Setup to start a live online search. Also, once it starts searching, you can even change the game setup for new games and it will remember what it was set to when you started the search for your online game.

Another tip: If you tap 'Invite' on the "Online (live)" tab, it shows how long roughly it will take to find an opponent.

Trust me if you like the game you'll love the live mode - it's way more fun than async mode! I'll be starting some Live game searches myself later on (in an hour or so) - so if you play against me LOTS OF LUCK!

Newcomers to the game, please try and complete all the Training before playing online - this game takes quite a bit of skill to be any good at it! But 10 minutes following Training carefully and you'll be a pro.

Lead Wars - full game free for a limited time - Happy 4th of July

I'm probably going to end the promotion tomorrow, so this could be your last chance to pick the game up for free.

Lead Wars has had about 200,000 downloads over the last five days which is pretty great, and the other day it was the #1 Strategy game in 23 countries! So thanks to you all for playing. It's great to see so many people playing online, particularly the Live mode!

Thanks especially to those who've given words of encouragement and those who've taken the time to rate it and write reviews. If you read this whole thread you'll see the game itself has evolved as a result of feedback from reviews and feedback from you guys here on TA - so an extra special thanks to those who bought the game early on and helped me improve the game.
