I'm surprised this game seems to have slipped by unnoticed. It's fantastic; a ton of fun with nearly endless replayability.

Well, it's available only in Canada, which might explain why it's flown under the radar (so to speak). Does look cool, though.

This looks to be heavily based on the flipbook game Ace of Aces. Very, very interested.

Maybe because, as square said, it's only in Canada at the moment? It's certainly a soft launch--the version is 0.1.0--but it's stable, well-balanced (five different difficulty settings sure help), and relatively bug-free. Could use a bit more documentation and improvement with the help system.

It reminded me of the same, although in this game the turns aren't simultaneous. Lots of tactical options, though, and your choices completely make the difference between victory and disaster.

It's on the dutch appstore as well.

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

For some reason (maybe because of the cell-shade look) I am reminded of Valkyria Chronicles.
