Tampere, Finland– September 18, 2009– 10tons Ltd. announced today that Boom Brigade is now available for iPhone™ and iPod touch®. The game is said to be a "top down tower defense line drawing shooter".
"Boom Brigade was inspired by the popular tower defense and line drawing games. We wanted to combine our love with top down shooters with these two mechanics," said Sampo Töyssy, the Vice CEO of 10tons. "We've discovered that the result is fun and addictive".
"We tried to make the miniature battlefield on the screen feel alive and interesting at all times. Even though the scale is small, all three types of troopers are different and unique," Sampo Töyssy continues. "You really have to see it in action to notice all the little details."
The combination of three game play mechanics is topped up with fierce invading aliens and three different types of tough and heroic troopers. The player is given the command of a brigade poised to take what ever the horde of aliens can throw at them. The goal is simple: Defend the bunker for as long as possible. Boom Brigade features three classes: minigun troopers, shotgun troopers and bazooka troopers. Any combination of classes can be used when assembling the squad. The player starts with one trooper and receives reinforcements as the alien attack continues. Weapon upgrades and bunker repairs can be bought with the loot the player collects from the aliens.
The game is developed and published by 10tons Ltd. It is their latest unique title just for iPhone and iPod touch. Their other iPhone games such as Azkend and Dragon Portals have been getting outstanding reviews since their release and are still growing in audience. Additional unique titles for just iPhone and iPod touch are in the horizon alongside mobile adaptations of 10tons successful casual games.
