Well, since you already bought it, mind if I ask what was it about the game that you disliked so much? The YouTube video seems to no longer exist, so the screenshots are all we have to work off of.

sure.

i bought the game expecting an RTS. this game is a joke. to upgrade a building it takes 1 hour of real time. of course there is a way to speed up the process. buying in game currency or Buzz points will instantly complete any task you are currently building. you start with 20 of these buzz points. and more are availiable via IAP. what kind of strategy game would lower itself to cheating for money? obviously a no good one. there is no single player, only multiplayer, but from the hour i actually wasted before writing this one off, is no one is actually playing. you have a Home base which you build factories and power generators, shared with 3 other random players to collect and stockpile energy and resources. i only had one other player in my world...

you can't actually attack from the home base. what happens is you go to the main menu and select go to war. where you use your saved energy and buzz points to build an army to attack another players home base..i attacked 2 other players, who were undefended and made no moves as i destroyed their homeworlds.

game is lame, i was attracted by the colorful graphics and the promise of an RTS, but... i should have been happy playing warfare inc.

^ Thanks for the impressions. Given the description, I kind of assumed it had freemium-like aspects to it, in which case it seems like it would make more sense as a free game + IAP. AppShopper says that it was free for the first ~3 weeks and they bumped it up to $2 right before this post. The screenshots look nice, but a multiplayer game w/o many players is rather pointless. I guess I will pass then.
