Provo, UT, July 10, 2009— Silverlode Interactive, developer of the world’s first collectible MMORTS, today announced its first iPhone game release SAGA Catapult, has earned a spot on Apple’s“New and Noteworthy” list on the App Store. After some positive reviews on top iPhone App sites, SAGA Catapult is now climbing the top 100 most popular games list.
Silverlode Interactive is not switching focus to become an iPhone developer, but rather are integrating the fastest-growing mobile platform into the SAGA world to offer the more than 200,000 gamers who registered for SAGA the ability to take SAGA wherever they go. In an upcoming update, gold earned in SAGA Catapult can be sent directly to that player’s SAGA MMORTS Online nation.
“Imagine having World of Warcraft mini-games on the iPhone where the gold or items you earned could be sent to your MMO characters… That’s what we’re doing with SAGA right now,” says Silverlode President Jason Faller.
SAGA Catapult uses the full 3D assets exported directly from the SAGA Online PC Game to create a 3D world where you take control of an ancient siege weapon. You are the last line of defense guarding your village against waves of Orcs, Dark elves and really angry Dwarves with bosses like the Shadow Dragon and Mech Giant. Killing enemies gives you gold which can be used in between waves to upgrade your catapult.
Silverlode Interactive continues to focus on breaking the mold. Creating an iPhone game that ties directly in to a PC game is just the newest example. Another cross-platform game currently being developed at Silverlode is SAGA Tactics, a game that goes one step farther by allowing players on the iPhone the ability to compete against players on a PC or Mac.
