Wasn't that an indie PC game many years ago? The developer's name sounds familiar.

Yes it's the same game as was on the PC. It works really well on my iPad.

They haven't - and won't ever - make an iPhone with a real keyboard.  I prefer real keyboard.  I'm actually kinda irked I don't have one on my current 'Droid.

I'm a practical Apple guy.  Mine works incredibly well for the things I do with it.  Most of my gaming is on the tabletop, so the teasing y'all give me is pretty irrelevant :)

@Staggerwing - Yes, Sean O'Connor did a few games back in the day for the PC, Firefight was one of them...Though looking at the screenshots, I think the UI is a bit different now and it looks like the graphics have been given a refresh.

Thanks for playing my game! I've still made no progress on the Android version (I'm waiting on Google releasing Android Studio 2.0 which should have good C++ support). In the meantime I've added local network play to the iOS version. One player can be the attacker while the other defends. If this is popular I'll look into having teams of network players attack and defend. If you give it a go please let me know what you think!
