Cubemen Marches onto App Store, Mac Store and PC Digital Download Services with Major Update

June 21st, 2012 – Melbourne, Australia – 3 Sprockets, an indie development micro studio, today launched the first major update for its award-winning fast paced, action packed original 3D Tower Defense game Cubemen . The free update available introduces online co-operative play for the first time with Mayhem mode, 14 fresh new levels and the ability to seamlessly customize units. To coincide with the release Cubemen is now available at a discounted price of US $1.99 until June 28, 2012.

“Our mantra for Cubemen has always been to offer a refreshing spin on the Tower Defense genre whilst working closely with the community to create the content that they want”, said Seon Rozenblum, Director of 3 Sprockets, “Our first major update radically expands the Cubemen universe, offering new gameplay modes, unit customisation options and new levels”. 

The new Mayhem mode brings intense multiplayer action to Cubemen for the first time. Experience Cubemen chaos with other players either individually or in cooperative mode as you take on 2 – 6 players online in six new multiplayer levels (multiplayer game are limited to 4 on iPad). The mode also introduces a lobby chat system to keep players entertained as they wait for new foes to begin a game.

Through selecting one of twelve new colour schemes and eight new costumes including outlandish ninja and skeleton suits, the new Customisation options allow players to modify their units to suit their personalities. To expand content, 3 Sprockets have released three new Skirmish levels and five new Defense levels, as well as introducing the new deadly Sniper unit (SID) armed with tracer bullets.

With stunning visuals that focus solely on gameplay and strategy, Cubemen is the age old struggle of Good vs. Evil. In the classic single player tower defence mode, players defend their units against the enemy through 35 levels by selecting and deploying troops, including rocket launcher-toting warriors, ice-armed soldiers and medics. Skirmish mode features 25 levels of real-time strategy-style multiplayer chaos where you compete against either an AI or human opponent. With cross platform functionality across all platforms Cubeman includes both local and global leader boards for all play modes.

Cubemen was declared the official winner of the Unity GEE multiplayer contest where it beat 20 other entries to become grand champion. For additional details on the contest please visit: http://www.geemag.de/category/bloginhalte/redaktion/
