10 Comments to the "Changelog March of War"

  1. Lawrencekk July 3, 2013 at 11:41 pm

    I seem to have a problem try to play the first battle. It keep saying there a error.

  2. SystemID July 7, 2013 at 01:30 am

    Here’s hoping on the next changelog we’ll see the ability to delete characters added. I love the game, but I’d like to be able to try out the different sides without having to buy a permanent slot each time.

  3. Logan Macdonald July 13, 2013 at 07:33 pm

    I’m really hoping that you can put the launch crashing on OS X as a major priority . I love the game , just got into it (2 hours played) , and then it stopped launching properly and that disappointed me . Glad you are working it though ! And overall a good game :)

  4. John Ross August 25, 2013 at 11:42 am

    Please add in a delete character function :/

  5. Kairwe September 17, 2013 at 03:14 pm

    I really hope that you can put the launch crash as a major priority.
    It is a good game and give me lots of fun! However, unable to launch properly that upset me a lot. I hope you can fix this problem as soon as possible.

  6. Natascha October 5, 2013 at 09:30 am

    I dont get it, will be the Nuclear Suicide Truck available at daily deal ?

  7. ZBlack February 7, 2014 at 09:53 pm

    Hows about fixing the GI’s grenade ability and fixing their movement, they will run one space and then shoot at nothing. Oh and fixing the bug that force ends my turn before I’ve done anything, its really starting to get old.

  8. Arab42 February 22, 2014 at 04:51 pm
