Royal Revolt!: The Campaign Has Reached the Underworld!

KARLSRUHE – November 16, 2012 – flaregames GmbH, a leading developer and publisher of mobile games, today announced the release of a major expansion for Royal Revolt!, its popular "reverse tower defense" game. The free update adds a whole new world to the game, including 20 levels and lots of improvements that make the game even more fun. Royal Revolt! is available for free, for the latest smartphones and tablets, via the Apple App Store, Google Play and the Amazon App Store for Android. So far, it has been downloaded more than two million times and maintains an average user rating of five out of five stars.

The colorful and humorous Royal Revolt! is about a young prince, who after the death of his father, the king, has his kingdom stolen by some particularly evil relatives. With simple and intuitive touch controls, the player directs the Prince through the beautifully designed levels and helps him conquer the strongholds to regain his throne. The update brings a completely new map, the "underworld", with 20 levels, new spells, new graphics and a new enemy, the witch aunt. Players can upgrade their hero and troops on their personal quest to regain their empire.

"The underworld is a really massive update. We‘ve continued to polish Royal Revolt! even more, but above all we‘ve added another 20 free levels to the 30 already in the game. It’s a huge free title with new graphics and all the trimmings," says Felix Pietsch, the producer of the game at Keen Flare. “We also see this as a thank you to our growing community of fans who love the game and play every day."
