Bos Wars Portable 2.7 Development Test 1

Submitted by scriptdaemon on May 15, 2010 - 4:32am

Application: Bos Wars
Category: Games

Bos Wars is a futuristic real time strategy game (RTS). In a RTS game, the player has to combat his enemies while developing his war economy. Everything runs in real-time, as opposed to turn-based games where the player always has to wait for his turn. The trick is to balance the effort put into building his economy and building an army to defend and attack the enemies.

Encouraging feedback from users

I'd like to suggest an addition to the Development Test - Forum Posting Layout.
One of the bigger delays to the release of apps is the lack of feedback from users. As someone recently posted, buggy apps get far more feedback than stable ones, so the stable ones will languish while waiting for user input.

I think simply putting a statement right below the download link might encourage users to provide both POSITIVE feedback and BUG REPORTS.
Something like:
