Great game! Still in beta and missing some features and performance optimizations but already a lot of fun and 100% stable.

The core gameplay is identical to the flash game Nano Wars from kongregate.com

Layered ontop of that is turrets for your docks, and different types of docks spawning different units.

Nothing amazingly innovative in terms of gameplay, but the graphics are really really good, it handles smoothly, and the interface is quite intuitive. Pretty damn good for a beta. Well worth 10 pounds.

Campaign mode features excessively cheesy animations; the realtime-rendered main game is much better looking (atypical for games). Despite being a strategy game campaign mode is relatively restrictive and has a poor difficulty ramp.

Great game! But the lack of Russian voices in the game from Russian developer irritates

Медленно работает на моём компьюетере, и механика игры быстро приедается + не удобно управление юнитами, ибо миникарта сделана очень маленькой, а основной экран игры нужен только для построения платформ.

It was a easy installation, click install, checkout, download and play.

From the first moment a very Beautiful and smooth game
very easy to play, mouse and keyboard keys that make sense.

Can't wait for the final product.

First, the gameplay: the tower defense / strategy combination is something that I find really awesome. The gameplay is also very smooth and engaging. I feel like I'm really in command of these units, so when one of them goes down, I swear retaliation and prepare more for my cause.

Next, the graphics: wow... just wow. I might be in the small percentile of people with "high-end" Linux PCs, but I can assure you that by seeing what this game looks like at maxed out settings it is worth it. My PC can handle it without breaking a sweat. The water, world, and environmental parts are rendered beautifully and fluidly, and everything is as smooth as butter.

I know the game is only in pre-release, and there are bugs -- such as not having audio on my system as of 0.95 and not being able to run it fullscreen on my Linux PC -- but they are easily overlooked and the game should come out more polished soon. Its release date is approaching, and this game is shaping up to be even more impressive!
