/!\ Important
This game HAS BEEN STOLEN by an other developer.
I just published a new version of the game and desactivate the actual version (you can't make fights or add contact anymore).
Please update from the link below to have the new version.
Sorry for inconvenience.

He unpublished the game from his account but androlib already referenced it. So I may have to change the name of the game.

Today I would like to share my last 6 month of developpement !

This new game mixes arcade, strategy and social.

This game is about Building, Teaching, Training and Betting on your Iron Soldier
You customise whats on your iron soldier, you choose what to teach him and choose how he fights...

Its only the first test of several and there is content missing but we need your help to improve this game, there is information in the game missing but i would to know if you can understand the interface and concept of the game we have created so far

You can find the APK file here :

After the creation of your robot, you could go in the account tab and change the group from "beginners" to "XDA", so we could make the first XDA team

This game is free and will integrate some paid content soon (like new weapons, credits) But for everybody who helps test this beta version,
I will remember you and give you the paid content for free

The first tournament is scheduled on Saturday, at noon, in London.

Enjoy and leave comments !

Things I would like your opinions on :
Do you think I should ask the email at the account creation ?
It could be used to send email notifications of finised challenges.

Every update will be done by replacing the apk by a newer, with the same name on my server.
I will notify here, by editing this first post.

so much bug reports...

I updated the game on the server !

Here is the changelog :
- contact finder improved, but the next week if will be much better
- the tab bar icon at the bottom of the main screen works better
- new notifications available : updates of the game, missing email, missing avatar can be notified
- loading of a fight (test tactic, minifight, challenge) don't stop anymore at 60%, so you should not have problem anymore
- update button on the minifight, challenge and tournament screen in the title bar
- fight improved : the robots have colors (red and blue), you see your avatar here so now you know who you are
- lot of bugfix for more stability

Day 6 (11 december)

1350 fights

New update

For the last time, you will have something to do to keep using your account. After it will be automatic.
You can update from the link on this thread.

Once updated, open the game and click "transfer my account..."
In the new page, in the "Second step", type your old nickname as password and it will work

Sorry for this process, I developped a solution so the next time you will not have to do it again.

Here is the changelog :

-bug fixed (but not all, sorry, and thank you for your reports!)
-some countries added to the list
-credits are updated automatically after a challenge and displayed on the phone
-I'm curious to know how it work on BIG screens, I worked on the compatibility for tablets

-more notifications availables : I can send you notifications for votes. So I can ask you a question and by clicking "yes" or "no" I can see the trend of the community.
You will have notifications also for updates and a direct link to download.

- contacts : you can find friends easier, look for new peoples, most active peoples... and for each of them you have : their number of fights and the last time they played.
So you will not challenge anymore a guy who created an account just for 10 minutes.

-we created more battlefield. they will be available tomorow and you will not have to do anything to see them.

-I'm still working on artificial intelligence and a lot of stuff so... be patient. The work is not over !

I read every reply of this thread, I glad you like it

And, yesterday the game has been stolen
A thief, took the apk, replaced the signature (this is actualy not too hard), and put the game on the market under his name, as a paid app !

I had to desactivate the actual version because of that. In the actual version, you will have a notification saying that you have to update. You can't create nor answer a fight, and can't add contact anymore.

In uploaded a new version on my server (0.9.4), it's registered on the google market, but not visible. So this guy will not be able to steal a second time the apk.

To avoid misunderstanding, the actual name (iron soldiers) will be replaced for the official launch.

Anyway, the version 0.9.4 does correct a lot a bugs and I hope it will work better on your phones

Every update will be done by replacing the apk by a newer, with the same name on my server.
I will notify here, by editing this first post.

Thank you everybody

Actually I would like to improve the artificial intelligence part.

I want to do something more graphic, step by step, and easy.
I have an idea... I should do it this week

Guys, how would you see it ?

so i have played it but it has crashed on me three times

set my tactics and done a simulation version.
one thing maybe i have slow reflexes but its pretty hard to get a high score in shoot reflex?
seems a prettly interesting game though.

have not played against anyone but i have sent a challenge so i am waiting to see how i stand up against one of the creators hehe! :)
