App description: The best real-time strategy is now at your fingertips! Starfront: Collision HD, the epitome of RTS gameplay with gorgeous HD graphics and a competitive 4-player multiplayer, finally hits the App Store!

Welcome to planet Sinistral, where rare Xenodium crystals are coveted by a human mining conglomerate called the Consortium. However, they are not the only ones after the rare mineral. The Myriad, an indigenous race of aliens, is addicted to Xenodium and will do everything they can to prevent the Consortium from plundering their resources. To add to the chaos, a sentient robot race called the Wardens is trying to turn the war in their favor. Whose side will you choose?

With Starfront: Collision HD, choose from 3 unique but balanced races and deploy your strategy for victory in this battle. Each faction can construct 8 different buildings and over 10 destructive units to build up their base and mount an unstoppable assault on adversaries. Once youve mastered the solo campaign, put your skills to the test in exciting multiplayer battles.

At last, an RTS with intuitive touch controls that give you total control over your forces.
The entire interface has been redesigned for the iPad to ensure a perfectly ergonomic handling of the game.
Hone your strategy with three different factions - The Consortium, Wardens and Myriad - each with unique tech trees and tactics.

Well description/screenshots don't seem to indicate anything special for the iPad2 in this version which is pretty dissapointing considering it took months for this release to happen...
Now they did mention iPad2 specific improvements in their podcast, so we might get FSAA but mmmm...

In two minds as whether to purchase this - bought the iPhone version but got a bit bored after a day or two...don't really feel like blowing another six quid - I actually hope they release a free with IAP version so I can see if it is really better or not

Now that I've got Order & Chaos I don't really care about this game anymore, I guess I just lost interest.
