Auckland, New Zealand - December 21th 2012
Ironfell the indie MMORTS is now available for Android tablets and phones from:
Ironfell on Android is the full game with all features found in the Mac and Windows Desktop version. All platforms connect to the same massive universe which currently has 1.9 million user controlled units and over 37,000 user created realms to explore.
Touch screens and tablets have been planned for in Ironfell from day one. "It's really exciting to see Ironfell available for everyone to play free on Android devices just before christmas", says David Colquhoun the games strategist and developer, "I might get my whole family Android tablets with Ironfell preloaded!".
It’s available for free from the Ironfell website; plans are underway to release to the Google Play Store in the new year.
Ironfell is currently an open beta aiming to go live first quarter of 2013.
An Ironfell player The_Dark_Knight commented;
“Theres an android app? Social life = dead”.
Ironfell treats balance quite differently to other MMORTSs. In Ironfell, you're allowed (and encouraged) to gain an unfair advantage over your enemies. The longer you've been playing for, the more resources you have, the stronger you are. And you can take that full advantage into battle, in a massive persistent universe.
