Good work as well :)

Good idea, but it's suprisingly hard to get into the game. Bookmarked, will try again later.

Some kind of tutorial would've been nice - took me a while to get he knack of it. But looks good

Fun game, though I agree it took a bit to get into or know what you're doing.

So hard against AI

I liked the concept, but had a hard time getting started. I read the controls, but still would have liked a slower intro versus the AI. Once I go used to it I really enjoyed the game.

Really creative, fun concept! "Base getting hit" sound is a bit annoying.

Loved most of the game, mainly the camera and the controls, since they felt very smooth. It felt a bit chaotic at times and didnt understand what was happening, and maybe a visual reminder of what beats what, couldve enhanced the experience. Besides that, great job dude =D

I like the concept, but the AI seems punishingly difficult. Maybe it would help if you had some control over the speed of the game, at least in the beginning? I did manage to eke out a win one round by surrounding my headquarters with arrows pointing away from it and getting lucky with the positioning of my airfield relative to the enemy headquarters.

Really cool idea. I think it would be more fun on a flat playing field so you could see what was going on... and maybe turn-based.

I wish I could spin the world with the mouse instead of just the keyboard.

May 12, 2012 @ 5:29pm

May 13, 2012 @ 7:33am

Interesting concept! :)

Solid gameplay, a bit hard to look at and control so much stuff that's happening. Good 3d graphics.
