Out now! Apple must've streamlined the processing speeds, because it popped up worldwide almost immediately.

iOS
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flipchamps/id1039790985?ls=1&mt=8

Android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.flip.champs

Flip yourself into becoming champion! Rack up your high score in this fast-paced, endless arcade battler against tough AI opponents.

Features include:
• 2 game play modes: Normal - speedy matches with one-hit victory or defeats. Survival - matches that afford you limited health that carries over between matches.
• 4 attacks to choose from, ranging from devastating laser blasts to timed mines.
• Tough boss dudes to battle.
• Colourful, retro visuals.
• Bumpin' soundtrack.

The game will be free, supported by ads that can be removed via IAP.  I'm open to any questions you may have!

Here's some enthusiastic Touch Arcade coverage the game has received, plus a game play trailer on Appspy:

I've actually been mucking around with local multiplayer and I've got it basically working! Pretty sweet. It won't be in the release version though. The game has been approved by Apple for about a week, so I'll wait until after the release and some play testing to push an update out.

What do you mean by local? Like over wifi, device to device or same device?

More great coverage since the release! Sadly, the game missed out on the Best New Games feature, but there's hope for the future!

Thanks! Multiplayer is slow going, but getting there. Hopefully I can get it uploaded to Apple this week.

Here's another write-up:
