HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCHES KNIGHTS OF THE PHANTOM CASTLE APP FOR IPAD

San Mateo, Calif.– April 6, 2010– Hudson Entertainment today announced its Knights of the Phantom Castle App for iPad is available on the App Store.

The app lets users construct and conduct a unit of knights with the objective of clearing over 50 stages set with various gimmicks and monsters. The Knights of the Phantom Castle App for iPad has gameplay specially designed for the innovative Multi-Touch user interface of iPad and includes beautiful graphics in the style of the classic video game.

A game stage in the app is set by 3 scenes: Camp, Combat Deployment and Stage Battle. Camp is the scene where users create a unit of knights. In Combat Deployment users set the formation of the unit and Stage Battle is when they fight. Knights are classed in 6 groups: Defender, Soldier, Assassin, Ranger, Mage and Healer. Each class has unique skills (shields, special fighting techniques, etc.) and those are the keys to successfully conquering the stages.
