Appidemic: Autumn Dynasty – RTS for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Real time strategy gamers are a special breed. I’ve had numerous conversations with developers about the rabid RTS crowd, and how critical they are of each change that comes their way, while also being the most dedicated and loyal game fans they are. So, how will fans take to Autumn Dynasty – RTS? I suppose that depends upon what you felt about it when it was just Autumn Dynasty.
