OM*G I hate Glu and their inane IAPs now!!! Worst of all, 3 of the same games with different art?
Seriously??? I loved Glu before they ventured away from payed apps. I had no problems when they moved on to payed games with IAP but their recent releases are just too expensive and !%#@ <- mind blank

Then again, since there's no one to confirm if this is another Gun Bros clone I'll withdraw my rage if I'm prove wrong (I long wished for this outcome).

"Star Blitz", a game similar to "Meteor Blitz". That's worse than "Battle for Wesnoth" vs "War of Eustrath". Or maybe not...

I can understand the need to reskin, but come on Glu, make it less obvious... Nobody wants to play the exact same game 3 times. Or will you keep reskinning until something sticks? (Get it? Glue, stick...)

Be sure to check out Shadow Era, a trading card game now with almost 3 million players, cross-platform multiplayer for iPhone, Android, web, PC and Mac for FREE!

I'm sorry Kyle, but in what way is War of Eustrath (which was released as a PC title almost a decade ago) a copy of Battle for Wesnoth?

Yes. I downloaded and played it. Just a space theme of Gun Bros and MvM.
P.S.The spaceship move faster than GB and MvM.

Beta Tested: 34 apps and games.

It seems odd that they're reskinning GB so frequently. I understand that reskinning is pretty standard within the freemium genre, but the way that Glu is doing it is a bit ridiculous. MvM has only a single level and GB has been abandoned with major bugs left in place. Instead of improving on the already existing games, are they hoping that some people will keep buying $50 IAPs every other month for a game that will get left in the dust?

I'm pretty sure it was a parody. War of Eustrath v Battle of Wesnoth. Nice one!
