I have played it on and off since release and I must say I'm impressed with the dedication of the dev. Continuous improvements and fixes. The game is more advanced than meets the eye as damage to ships are detailed under the hood. So far the best complex war game on iPad IMO. Nice thing is that the UI isn't that complicated so the game strikes a nice balance between complexity and accessability.

I'd like to know if the multiplayer was cross-platform or not.  Doesn't say in write-up (althought I see multiplayer is the first strectch goal). 

Also of interest, the team includes Phillipe Thibaut (formerly of AGEOD) for Graphics and Historical Research.

This does play like Carrier! by Victory Games, all the way down to level 1 through 4 intelligence.

Oh Well, back to your original idea of the Four-person Surfboard.

I wonder if this will make its goal....several days in and still about $20k away....usually the early days of the kickstarter is when you see the biggest push.....fingers crossed.

I wish someone would reprint this game... I am still kicking myself for giving it away years ago...  What was I thinking?   :idiot2:
