Quantum Collapse. Groundbreaking Real Time Strategy game coming soon!

Hi guys,

I'm the developer of a new RTS coming to iphone called Quantum Collapse, this will be a major Iphone title and i decided to announce it first here on these forums.



I won't release much more than that simple screenshot for now, but this game won't let you guys down. I'm a hardcore gamer and i know what gamers like so i have no doubts in Quantum Collapse.

Feedback is much apreciated!, also let me know what you'd like to see in a major RTS title for iphone.

This is the Command and Conquer series for the iPhone which will be better than the RTS that EA is working on for this. We want originality not ports EA. Learn from this dev or make him part of your iPhone dev team. Any of them will do but the 2nd is preferable. And yay I thought I was the only hardcore gamer here for RTS JK.

BTW: how will the control scheme work?
Sorry I meant the this game will be like the C&C Series for the PC not that this is the C&C Series

Looks pretty sweet. My personal favorite RTS is Starcraft, and yours appears to have a spacey vibe so that's good. Things I would like to see are:

Multiple races that you can play as

Lots of different and unique soldiers and vehicles in each class, ex. Maybe one class would have a vehicle that another class didn't have, and vice versa. This would add strategy because you would have to choose the right race suited for the job.


A decent story mode

Lots of single-play maps that you can pick a race and just play

Multiple options within those single play maps ex. Number of cpu players, what races they are, etc.

ONLINE MULTIPLAYER. If this is over your head for now, I completely understand, but I feel this is a crucial part of any RTS. If it's not there in the beginning, make some profit and then implement it later

A competitive price. While there are few RTS's in the app store, most of them have
the things above. Make yours the best so they will be inclined to buy it. A nice low price couldn't hurt either.

The irony is that i made most of the website of the current red alert/cnc EA portals.

How about some air units like bombers, helicopter, and some sea units that could actually give you guys some publicity for allowing sea unit that is actually done right *looking at another RTS* Anyways make some unit variety for different races and maybe some CGI maybe. It doesn't have to be real life but it could be some kind of animation though.

A few more things.

Good controls. Bad controls in a game like this could ruin it.

Massive widescale battles. The thing that worries me about that pic is the fact that not much is going on. I would like massive battles, where I send my 30 troops and 7 tanks right up to the enemy and watch what happens. Don't just have single soldiers running around, have an easy way to group them and send them to attack.

Dont worry. It'll be buggy, but you might want to have some ideas of advertising eh?

Yes, although the game will initially launch as just single player its being programmed with to be easily changed for multiplayer matches.

I'm thinking first release will be singleplayer, the following update will have bluetooth/internet multiplayer and if things kick off and people like it a full blown ranked multiplayer system.

Ohh and one little detail i left out... the game has physics built in don't we all love physics in game?, now we have them on an RTS
