    *edit - I just noticed the forum rule about real money transactions. If this contest is not acceptable per touch-arcade rules I can convert the give away to any gift-card requested. Sorry about that!*


    I've announced the beta for my upcoming iOS game, Galaxy Wars (name not final), but I don't enough testers yet.

    To encourage more beta participation I'm going to a $200 drawing paid via pay-pal to my beta testers that complete the following tasks:

    1. Sign Up for the beta at the below link
    2. Once it's available, Install the Beta and provide their initial impressions along with a suggestion for the name of the App using the in-app feedback form
    3. Play 3 Turn-Based Matches against other Beta Testers to completion
    4. Provide any meaningful feedback after finishing the matches using the in-app feedback form.
    5. For each match you win during the beta your name will be entered into the drawing 1 additional time, up to 3. Wins will be determined based on the in-app leader board
    6. Reply to this thread and tell us all about what you think of the App.

    You can sign up here.

    I'll announce the winner on this thread on September 7th.

    With all iOS betas, Apple limits the number of devices I can enable so join while there is still room! Thanks everyone!

    Once I have all the beta slots filled I have to complete some steps in testflight to allow you to install the beta on your device. You'll be notified via the email you used to create your testflight account as soon as I complete those steps. That notification will include a link to install the app directly on your device. You should read and click on the link in that email from your actual device. You should expect that e-mail in just a few days.

    From there anytime I need you to do anything you'll be notified via test flight.

    Thanks again for your participation, as of right now we have 9 slots remaining.

    Previously applied and still interested, it's a shame developers have to resort to giveaways to get beta participation. Thanks in advance for any consideration.

    I totally agree UDC in the beginning for me it was all about trying new things and making my gameplay that I love more meaningful to me and others....especially small-time dev teams...I often have to go back to that state of mind whenever the time is right ....

    With that said I applied and mainly because Im really interested in this space match 3 multiplayer concept...all I had to hear was that playing live people was incorporated in the beta and I was sold! Also the 200$ helps too lol:D

    Beta testers provide a really valuable service so as difficult as it is for a 1 man shop to pay for testers it's totally worth it. I'm just excited play some games vs all of you. The feed back will just be icing.

    FYI 2 slots left!

    Thanks everyone, the beta is full. I'll be uploading a build later tonight!

    Testing will go for the next 2-3 weeks. Be sure to check back here for the Beta Testers impressions of the App.
