CAMBRIDGE, MA - October 10, 2012 - SUBATOMIC STUDIOS is pleased to announce that Fieldrunners is now available on the Mac App Store! The tower defense game that won Best Game and Best Art in the 2009 IGF Mobile launched at $6.99USD. This new version of the game includes new weapons, new modes, and all levels released so far. Get the game TIME Magazine included in their Top 10 Video Games list and enjoy this classic tower defense experience now!

Fieldrunners for the Mac App Store comes packed with more content than any version yet, and is available for discerning TD fans for less than the cost of the iPad version! In addition to the 6 weapons, 3 difficulty settings, and classic modes from the original game, we've included all 5 levels and 5 weapons from the DLC for free, along with the all new Poison Tower, and the hot new game modes Time Trial, Sudden Death, Tower Combo 1, and tower Combo 2!

The critically acclaimed Fieldrunners originally launched in 2008 as one of the first games for the then new iPhone. Its hand painted artwork, instantly accessible tower defense gameplay, and addictive action, quickly caught attention of Steve Jobs, who demonstrated Fieldrunners for iPad in front of fans. TIME Magazine included Fieldrunners in their “ Top 10 Video Games,” alongside hits like Grand Theft Auto IV, Braid, Gears of War 2, and Rock Band 2. The game went on to win the Best Game and Achievement in Art in the 2009 IGF Mobile, and was a finalist in the 2010 Indie Games Challenge.

Fieldrunners 2 , the big follow up to the award-winning original, launched on iPhone and iPod Touch in July 2012, and came to the iPad in September 2012. Will the sequel make it's way to the Mac App Store as well? “Bringing the original Fieldrunners to as many platforms as possible was a big part of our strategy with the brand,” says Marketing and PR Manager, Alec Shobin. “Our experiences in each marketplace will determine what platforms we port the sequel to, so we're all very eager to see what kind of reception the original Fieldrunners receives in the Mac App Store.”
