Elgin, Scotland. November 7 th 2012. Game developer and publisher Hunted Cow has announced Battle Dungeon, a brand new turn-based online multiplayer game for Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Battle Dungeon brings a new level of challenging and sophisticated strategy gaming to iOS. The game is one of the first to provide a more long-term and in-depth experience to players who play and enjoy role-playing and strategy games online, on consoles and on home computers.
Battle Dungeon is the pinnacle of nearly three years work for Hunted Cow and builds on the studio's vast experience in designing and developing online massively-multiplayer role playing games, which have allowed Hunted Cow to build a user base of several million active players.
The game challenges players to build a party of warriors, archers and priests to battle and defeat opponents.
There are three classes in the game, all of which have two unique abilities and each of which can choose from three different weapons classes. Players can recruit up to 30 party members, each of whom will gain experience through battle and who can be upgraded with new skills, attributes and use hundreds of items, to build the ultimate team of soldiers.
The game has several modes allowing players to practice against artificially intelligent (AI) players, or compete directly with other gamers around the world in practice, friendly and challenge matches.
Players rankings are based on challenge games, allowing users worldwide to compete for ranking on the high score boards, which can be accessed through the game or via the Battle Dungeon website.
Andrew Mulholland, co-founder and CEO of Hunted Cow said, “We are very proud to announce Battle Dungeon. We're all huge strategy gamers and it's a game very close to our hearts. We've taken everything we've learned from our most successful online titles, such as Fallen Sword and Gothador, with our more recent experience with turn-based strategy gaming on iOS with Tank Battle: 1944 and Civil War: 1863.
“We think we've created something which will hit the sweet spot for strategy gamers everywhere. It offers the depth, the challenge and long-term playability that we know strategy fans love, but tailored specifically for the touch-input and shorter game sessions of the latest generation of iOS devices. We'll be announcing the release date for Battle Dungeon in the near future and we're looking forward to making it available to players all over the world in the next several weeks.”
