Battle Tankz rumbles onto the App Store

Haarlem, The Netherlands -  15th August 2013 - Independent game publisher Iceberg Interactive today announced the upcoming release of its new game Battle Tankz for iPhone and iPod Touch. Battle Tankz is a turn-based combat strategy game featuring a new ‘Swipe ‘n Shoot’ control system in which players control precisely the direction of their shots by drawing a path for their shells on the screen. The power of the shot is also controlled by the force with which the player draws their attack.

In Battle Tankz, players take control of a group of tanks and in each round must defeat their enemies by executing a limited amount of offensive or defensive moves against the clock. Gamers can select from a range of strategic options include healing, chemical weapons, laying down mines, moving to cover or raining down hell on their enemy through a deadly arsenal of weapons.  Players will be able to lob shells, lay mines, call in A-10 Warthog strafing runs, B2 Stealth Bomber attacks and as a FINAL option...a tactical nuclear strike. The game’s novel control method is further extended to controlling the path of bombing and strafing runs by tilting the device.

Battle Tankz features a Campaign Mode that takes players across the global theater of war from rock-strewn deserts to forests and arctic tundra. In addition to the Campaign Mode, gamers can play in online turn-based Multiplayer Mode via Game Center and also test their skills and see how long they can last inside the mayhem of Survival Mode.

Features:

•    Unique and innovative Swipe ‘n Shoot control system

•    Addictive turn-based strategy gameplay

•    A mighty arsenal of upgradeable tanks and weapons

•    Battle your way across forests, desert and arctic conditions

•    Campaign, Multiplayer and Survival Modes for endless fun

•    Share your achievements through Facebook

Battle Tankz will soon be free to download from the App Store with optional in-app purchases.
