TRUE COMPETITIVE MULTIPLAYER STRATEGY COMING TO MOBILE DEVICES. IT'S A BAD TIME TO BE A TURTLE!
PRAGUE, December 3, 2012 – eeGon, a rising developer of mobile games, announces TurtleStrike for iOS and Android devices. TurtleStrike is online multiplayer strategy that combines the best of tabletop, turn based and RPG elements together to reach all new levels of gameplay. Release date is set to first quarter 2013.
- Regular tournaments with prizes up to US$ 1000.
- No more waiting for your opponent’s turn! TurtleStrike is Live Turn Based game. (Both players take their turns at the same time.)
- Skill-based; easy to learn, hard to master.
- Free to play, but not pay to win. Most of the weapon upgrades are more like “sidegrades.”
- There is minimum communication between your device and the server, no lag even on slow 3G networks.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
Both you and your opponent start with 10 turtles and first player who manages to wipe all enemy turtles wins. But before the game starts, you have to place your turtles into 3 formations. You can customize different shapes of formations – as long as your turtles are touching side to side.
Ok, you have your turtles in place, now what? Each group of turtles can do one of the following actions each turn:
- Shoot a Missile – usually a short ranged ballistic weapon.
- Shoot a Torpedo - a long ranged weapon that can be guided around islands and obstacles by “painting” on your touch screen.
There are also special moves:
* Shield – each group can shield itself only once per match; turtles in a chosen formation hide inside their shells, making themselves invulnerable for that turn.
- Use Secret Special Weapon - cooldown-based unique abilities that can completely change the outcome of the game.
