Enkord releases Armada Tanks, a thrilling new arcade shooter

October 15, 2007 -- Old school gameplay and modern graphics come together in Armada Tanks, a hot new arcade shooter from Enkord, the creators of Clash&Slash and other action games for the casual market. Players can download and enjoy a free one-hour demo of Armada Tanks from www.enkord.com.

Armada Tanks challenges players to protect their military base from the enemy. In each of the game's more than 60 levels, players steer their armored carrier into position and fire on an impressive variety of opposing tanks. As players earn money for completing missions, they can purchase upgrades and well as new weapons. And when the action gets intense, players can roll over powerups that offer several benefits, including invincibility and base repairs.

As with every game from Enkord, the production values are top notch. Featuring cel-shaded graphics and 12 visually stunning environments, Armada Tanks renders all of its action on a single screen, giving the title a retro feel reminiscent of the early days of home console gaming. In addition, Enkord kept the controls simple, choosing accessible run-and-gun mechanics over a cumbersome interface. You'll be blasting the enemy into smithereens moments after loading Armada Tanks for the first time! Potent sound effects and pulse-pounding music round out the features of this modern classic.

"After developing a number of casual puzzle games, we wanted to get back to what we do best: making casual arcade titles with great graphics, explosive action and addictive gameplay," said Yaroslav Yanovsky, CEO of Enkord. "We believe fans of Clash&Slash and other shooters are going to have as much fun playing Armada Tanks as we had making it!"

Armada Tanks runs under Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista. The full version offers more than 60 levels, six weapons, 24 upgrades and nine powerups. Free game updates and technical support are also included with the purchase of the registered version.
