Liquid Defense is now available for the iPad. This is a port of the Mac version I wrote about six years ago, for about 80 hours of porting work it was definitely worth throwing on the iPad. Hydrothermal is a city simulator game where you create a space colony and ward off space invaders. You control every aspect of your city, from the basic layout to taxes and laws. I think the iPhone screen is too small to really play the game, so I didn't bother making a universal version. If the game does well enough the interface could be redone for the iPhone.

Feedback is welcome. If anyone has played GL Golf since the beginning they know that it has had over 60 feature adding updates over the years, most of which were suggested by users.

I loved making the video for Rocket Golf (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8-Ft5TVB2o), so if I get time I'll definitely do one for Hydrothermal. No time now though, I'm 2/3rds done with an arcade shooter that I'd love to finish by the new year!
