This sounds right up my alley. If turns out that it's 99*at launch here in the US, I'm willing to TOFTT and post impressions later. Would be nice to see a video first, but overall I like Bulkypix.

Reminds me of an old game I used to play way back on Vax/Vms called 'Core Wars' - any other REALLY old geeks play that?!

Can't wait to give this a go... just 45 mins to wait ;-)

I like this a lot!! Woo hoo! I'm on Level 18 - seemed easy to get this far - but the current virus means I have to rewrite my existing one. I think this is gonna be great online... I'll give that a shot tomorrow.

Superb game...

Still like this but found you need to IAP to play online. Your first 53 online duels are included in the price of the app then after that it's another $1 per 50 more.

Conveniently excluded from the app description. Bit crap really. Not so happy now.

Very disappointing news about having to pay to do online duels. Hopefully the developer will see this thread and provide an explanation why.
