2XL Fleet Defense Touches Down on the USS iPhone

PHOENIX, AZ - December 7, 2009

2XL Games, on the heels of back-to-back smash hits with 2XL Supercross and 2XL ATV Offroad, have announced the release of their newest entry on the iTunes App Store, 2XL Fleet Defense. 2XL Games has built a reputation for quality and polish; 2XL Fleet Defense continues the developer’s commitment to excellence at the low price of $1.99. 2XL Fleet Defense is a 2D airplane blast-em’-up with deceptive depth and the pick-up-and-play appeal that mobile gamers crave.

2XL Fleet Defense starts off with your F-35 jet taking off from an aircraft carrier’s deck in the middle of the ocean. The first wave of enemy planes and ships are easy to tackle- just tap them to lock on and fire. As players progress through the game they must devise a strategy to blast the opposing forces before they destroy the carrier. Gamers must balance repairing the ship with shooting down enemies, all while using the fully-interactive radar view to spot the incoming forces. With one touch of the panic button, the carrier will unleash the ultimate screen-clearing weapon, the Phalanx. But be warned– it takes a while to reload and must be used wisely.

2XL Fleet Defense features:

    <*>Quick arcade action– pilot your jet and take down swarms of enemies <*>Strategy– use the interactive radar view to stay one step ahead of the enemy <*>Five profiles to save user preferences and high scores <*>Fun statistics like total score, overall time played and enemy kill count <*>Global leaderboards– how do you rank against the world’s top fighter pilots? <*>Integrated achievements track your progress from newbie to fleet admiral <*>Set your own soundtrack with songs from your music library

2XL Fleet Defense is out now for iPhone and iPod Touch on the iTunes App Store for $1.99.
