Dust Up - 2-player tactical battle game for iPad - Beta testers wanted

Hi

Dust Up for Two is a 2-player real-time strategy game for iPad with lots of action and big explosions!

Check out the game play video below to see it in action.


Youtube link | Pop Up


Two rival factions of cyber-animals, The Monkidroids and The Dolphos battle for their survival on Oberon - the outermost major moon of Uranus. The game play is like 2-player tower defense with players sending attackers to enemy territory and building turrets and cannons for defense. Controlling energy-producing uranium fields is crucial for victory.

We are a small game studio founded by two guys. We've been developing Dust Up for a few months and play testing it with friends and random people in bars and parties. Reception has been promising: a group of early testers got so excited that they already organized world's first Dust Up tournament by themselves.

We are now looking for more testers to give us feedback before the release. We are also going to continue developing the game to introduce new units and features. If you are enthusiastic about the genre, please sign up for beta testing here.

To all who already signed up for beta, we will send information tomorrow!

If anybody has iPad2, we'd love to have you testing it as we can't get one here in Finland before 26th of Mar.

P.S. Some coverage on Silicon Angle:

Big thumbs up

This game is awesome. Have played various betas, lots of thought and playtesting has gone on here, and it's honestly the only two-people-one-iPad game I can flat-out recommend besides Shotshotshoot. It's a REAL Game. You know, the kind that's actually fun to play, and not a half-hearted platform experiment?

Go give it a shot, people.

zergslayer69, thanks, that's great.

If you can leave your device identifier (needed for beta builds) via our Beta signup process, that is the easiest way. There are instructions how to get your UDID after you leave your email http://huikea.com/dustup Btw, mention the iPad2 and that you are zergslayer69 from TouchArcade forums and we will make sure that you are included in the next beta build.

If you know how to get your UDID, you can of course send it directly to team@huikea.com.

Thanks for the help!

Explosive Fun

I've been playing this game since the early Alpha rounds and I'm still totally addicted to it. It's an awesome combination of strategy, fast paced combat and biig explosions.

My personal favorite is to overwhelm the opponent with zerg tactics forcing him to go into defensive mode while I build up my power generation. Of course some players have good counters against this tactic but with proper placement of units you can take out even more advanced gamers.

Anyone with an iPad should get this game. It's basically the reason I carry my iPad to the office.

Is this based on a board game? Your website seems to show a group of players around a big fortress etc?

Looks good, but is there an online mode or offline campaign (for those without a buddy to play this sort of game??
