Firewall - The board game where you make the rules

I would like to receive comments on a new game I'm going to publish (my first). I'd appreciate any kind of feedback, but just don't forget to put the good with the bad. :-)

About Firewall

Tired of always playing by the rules? Now you can make your own!

Firewall is a two-player tactical board game where you get to decide the

In Firewall, you command an evil army of cyber units on a battlefield where the rules of war change according to players' whims.

How it works

The aim of the game is for players to win points by taking their opponent's units.

But in Firewall, as in all cyber warfare, there are no hard and fast rules. Players get cards that help them shift the balance of power, like by making threatened units poisonous, so your opponent loses a point if she takes it, or by switching the direction a type of unit can move.

Combine luck with tactics in a game where no match is ever the same.

You're correct - there is a mistake in the video. It'll be available only in two-three weeks. Originally I made it as a promo pitch and then decided to use it for IndieGogo, forgot to change the final wording... :-/

Any other comments than this?

This app looks pretty cool. Will it support Online Multiplayer (eg. gamecenter multiplayer)? I like the idea of being able to change the rules. Are there a lot of things you can change?

You can change the distance units move, the direction they move to, and the type of bonuses you get for eating a unit or eating with a unit.
For example, you can make "poison" units by making a rule that "when eating a zombie, lose 2 points".

And yes, the game supports online multiplayer "out of the box", even in the free version. The idea is to get as many players as possible on the multiplayer so everyone can enjoy this!
