Unlock the mysteries of Pyramus!

Elgin, Scotland. 6th June 2013. Hunted Cow is proud to announce it’s latest strategy iOS game Pyramus. This is Hunted Cow’s fifth iOS strategy title and is their first to feature real-time combat.

Pyramus brings space combat down to a tactical level, focusing on commanding individual ships with special abilities to outwit your opponent. The game features two challenging 10 mission campaigns giving players control of two unique races, the Korthan and the Terran. Your strategy and tactics will settle the struggle for power as your enemies close in around the Pyramus sector.

The Terran ship abilities include the Destroyers’ Homing Missile to take out the enemy at range, while the Support ship is able to repair damage of two nearby ships simultaneously. The Korthan Empire’s arsenal includes the devastating Cluster Missile which fires as a single missile which then splits into multiple warheads.

The lead developer, Stuart Gray says “It’s been very exciting working on our first RTS (real-time strategy) game.  We’ve worked very hard to create a quality strategy title optimised for touchscreen devices and are very excited to see Pyramus heading towards the App Store.  We hope our players have as much fun playing it as we had developing it.”.

Pyramus will be available on the iPhone, iPod and iPad on the 13th June 2013 for an introductory price of $0.99 (Normal price $1.99)

About Hunted Cow:

Hunted Cow Studios was formed in September 2003 by Andrew Mulholland (Hoofmaster) and Glenn Murphy (Cowboy) in the small but friendly town of Elgin. The company's first website, CowPlay, was launched the same year. This website offered free multiplayer correspondence chess.

Five months later, Hunted Cow Studios released its second online game titled Gothador, followed shortly by Fallen Sword which has rapidly grown to become one of the most popular massively multiplayer online roleplaying games available, its engrossing setting and stories drawing in hundreds of new players daily.

The company is working on the highly anticipated browser-based, 3D massively-multiplayer online role-playing game, Eldevin, which is now in Closed Beta.

Hunted Cow has also released several mobile games, with the company's launch title Tank Battle: 1944 complemented by Civil War: 1863 and Tank Battle: North Africa.
