John Kooistra's latest game Red Conquest has finally arrived in the App Store. Red Conquest is a real time strategy game set in open space.

Take command of your fleet with a user interface designed specifically for the mobile platform! Casual players of RTS games will appreciate the ease of managing their units with simple multi-touch controls, while RTS veterans will love the variety of advanced macro- and micromanagement options for tactical warfare.

The developer's trailer and walk through video show how the action goes:

First impressions are starting to be collected in our forums, and we'll spend some time with the game and report back.

Kooistra was also the developer for Blue Defense and Blue Attack.

App Store Link: Red Conquest, $3.99

    I'm a fan of his last 2 games (although the controls for Blue Attack is now very outdated ever since virtual dual analog took off) but Passing on this because of the price. I've bought some too many awesome iphone games for the past few months, and most of them have been a buck or two. I'll probably wait for a price drop on this one.

    Bought. His first games were wicked, I expect this to be even better. The dev deserves my dollar and as this will get less attention than Need for Speed Shift and Avatar etc, I especially think it's important to support the dev. This looks brilliant I can't wait to play. :)

    Looks interesting.
    Will I "get it" if I haven't played the other games?

    • anthonyafterwit

      Yes. It's a completely different game, just the graphics have a similar style.

    So, I really enjoyed Blue Defense after sticking with it for a while. Blue Attack for some reason just didn't float my boat. Perfectly good game, but even John said in his recent podcast, that Defense was the more solid one of the two.
    Now, I'm stuck wondering if this will spark tears of joy in me as Blue Defense did or just a feeling of 'Meh' as Blue Attack did.
    Anyone care to help out? : )

    • MrMuesli

      ok, I caved. Wow! I have no idea what is going on, but I can see that it's one hell of game! The cut scenes are naff imho, and all the 'thee and thou' speech in the tutorial is a bit overbearing, but the game itself rocks!
      Well done John. Money well spent: )
