  1. Greetings,
    We are an indie game development team called Traptics and we just released our first game for mobile phones and tablets.
    The game is called “Game of Legions” and it is focused on the combination of puzzle and strategy. The player is the commander of a legion. By commanding the units, through a match three mechanic, you create squad of units that attack the enemy. The aim is to pierce through the enemy army and kill the commander. The player has to prioritize his attacks in order to be most effective, because every few turns the enemy hits back.
    Main Features
    • Easy to learn, hard to master
    • Extremely polished content
    • Alternative use of a very common mechanic (match 3)
    • Facebook integration
    It would be great if you could review our game. The game is now available for Android, and very soon for the IOS. Shortly after that we will release it for Windows Phone and PC.
    Thanks a lot

    I have written you already when our studio launched the Kickstarter campaign for our game “We Are The Dwarves!”. I think it will be interesting for your audience that we added gameplay shots and explanations in our presentation update.
