That's a good read, and developed within a year, fantastic stuff.  Just out of interest, how long on average did you spend per week working on this game?

Outstanding!
Please make a port to WebOS as well - it's really going to sell on the TouchPad, because it will totally outstand from the store.

If I can grab a phone and tablet at a reasonable enough price then I'll do that after the the iOS and Android phone and tablet version are done :)

Are there any GOOD webOS tablets / phones that are available to buy brand new? - Mind you, I guess the HP TouchPad may be quite easy to grab on eBore these days, I will have a quick look (around £150 to £200 on eBore and Gumtree).

It will eventually be available also for iPhone,  Android tablet & phone, Windows and OS X :good:
 
The minute this is available for Windows/Mac OS X, I'm buying it.  :good: How much are you going to charge for it, d'ya think?

I'm figuratively drooling over the screen shots...

The iPad version is (when Apple approve) £1.99 / $2.99 - The iPhone version will be the same as it will become a universal binary supporting both devices.

I've not decided on a PC / MAC price point yet but I doubt I'll stray much from the above, if any. I want to increase the texture and model resolution on the PC / MAC versions of course, but providing it doesn't require a lot of extra time / work then that price point for the PC / MAC looks about right.

The MacStore might be worth a try. Also the Inten AppUp.

Time to hang up my keyboard I think, there is no way I could beat that as an app. You have created the GLBasic killer app there I think. Gernot needs to get a video of that running on the front page to show what can be done with GLB. I would buy that the day it hits the Android Market (as long as the Tegra 2 problems are sorted in GLB :) ).

I hope you get a good return on your years work on the project, it should be a top seller

What?!?! I tested on iPad 1 before submitting and it worked flawlessly. Purchased on iPad 2 from the store and that works.

Now purchasing from store on iPad 1. Testing... Crap, I know why it's doing this on the iPad 1.

Sorry to iPad 1 owners, issuing update 1.01 to Apple today.
