I'm one of the developers, if anyone has any questions lemme know. If you like giant robots and turn based strategy, you'll love it. We poured our hearts into the game, as fans ourselves, and I think it shows.

It was great working with the iPad too, super easy dev environment, and our game really shines on that screen with the touch interface. The iPad version is better than the PC version in my opinion.

Thanks for having a skirmish mode in addition to the campaign. How many maps are available in the skirmish mode?

There is no video of gameplay, but there is a demo for PCs that should run on just about any windows machine released in the last 10 years. We are working on putting together an iPad demo too, look for that in a week or two.

Every single campaign map can be played in skirmish, so that means there are 19 maps, all of which work great. It sure is fun pitting 10 of the most powerful mechs against 10 of the weakest!

Well, slap a video together, hombre, because all I gots is Mac and, at 8 bucks, there'll be no investment w/o at LEAST a vid of gameplay.

Nowadays, releasing any game over $1 without a vid means you're going to see some pretty resistant consumers.
