    We have just launched Warfare & Havoc in Google Play. It is a real-time tactical war game developed by two Estonian IT students as a hobby project :)

    We would be thankful if anyone would review it and give some feedback and point out what should be changed.

    The game contains 27 levels of which the first seven are free.

    Congrats on your release - I'll be honest RTS games aren't really my thing, but I'm downloading it and will give it a whirl because I'm impressed you got it completed!

    Best of luck with it :)

    We are still trying to make it better. Did you see something that annoyed you or that should be changed/added?

    It's a fucking gaming website. I thought bedroom coders were meant to be a good thing or is that only if on the pc? Sure ddevil/MrTomFTW will be along to lock it now that you asked anyway.

    We haven't ported it to ios. If it gets average success (i.e., it pays for the time it takes to port the game) with Android then we are most likely going to do it.

    Sorry, it is our first game and none of us has been in this community before. However, my intention behind creating this post was to get feedback. It is quite difficult to get any feedback as a newcomer.

    I'll be happy to review it, in return for a free copy.

    That's how this shit works, isn't it?

    Would you rather have spam robots coming in posting "Check out this great game I found on Google Play/iTunes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111", which is what we used to have and we called people out on it.

    At least, this way, it's honest and upfront about who they are and what they're promoting.

    Admittedly, I would prefer a more descriptive thread title, i.e. App Name - Genre - OS, that way you can tell if it's something of interest to you.

    Congratulations on the game. How's it been going sales wise?

    One of the very few ways that small indie studios can publicise their games is by going directly on forums such as this. I guess it might feel a little like you're being 'sold to' but most indie's simply don't have money to go any other route other than this.

    At this point we are just trying to get people to notice the game.
    About 600 people have downloaded the game (it is free), it seems that the game is not visible in the market, probably most of the downloads are caused by reviews or forum posts.

    However, if it would be seen in the market then the number of installs should grow much faster as the first seven levels are free and one can play them to see if it is worth to unlock the rest of the levels.

    I've forwarded that to my Google+ gaming group! Good luck Bavuwe!

    "The package file is invalid" once downloaded might explain why it's not so popular.

    I googled that error, it shouldn't be related with the application.
