Cosmonauts brings turn-based space combat to Android

Superplay Games, an independent team up of seasoned gaming developers and gamers, have released their first title this week.  Called Cosmonauts, it’s a free download for Android 2.0 or higher (most tablets) which lets players take turns against one another up in the stars. Featuring both single-player and multiplayer modes, the game offers power-ups, space debris, mines, asteroids and gravity wells.  Although the game is free to install and play, in-app purchases is where you find the best stuff, including additional power-ups, weapons, characters, and more.

According to the press release, Superplay Games plans to offer new content on a regular basis, providing long term replay value.  We’re really digging the cartoon-ish vibe of the game and can’t wait to see what else comes out of this team.
