Armada Alpha release!
« on: December 03, 2013, 10:58:18 pm »


The Space Combat Sim Armada has reached Alpha Status. Get the APK here:
http://www.ironman-project.com/armada.apk

The easiest way to get it is by opening the link above on your Android browser.
Alternatively, you can download the APK to the PC, transfer it to your mobile device and install it from here.

Alpha status means:
  • Graphics (GUI stuff mainly) and some sounds are not final
  • There will be a few tweaks to the missions etc.
  • You will encounter some bugs.

Note that you need a pretty potent device, preferable with a 5" or bigger screen, for full play experience. 
In-game payments are not active, but you get 99 instant repairs and 1000 startup credits instead.

Have fun!

edit: you can also try to scan this QR code to get the game

Runs great on a Nexus 4 / Android 4.4. It took me a few minutes to get used to the controls, but after that, it already felt quite Wing Commanderish...great work!

Thanks!
Yeah, usually the controls take some time. By the way, in case you haven't seen it, when you pause during a mission you can configure them to a degree.
There is also gamepad support if you have the hard/software to use it on your mobile.

  One word...Awesome!   ;D
It is so nicely done ! (and it is in alpha stage!)
But one question ....Are these 3d models having high polys?

A few hundred per ship I'd say ;) The texture work makes them look quite a bit more detailed than they are. In case someone's interested, I've got all the models from this guy:

I have updated the apk with a few tweaks - nothing spectacular. There will be probably around 5 more updates before going beta.
