Flashman under the PulsePlay™ brand brings Stickwars™ 3, Threequel to the Original Castle Defense Game, to iOS at en

San Francisco, CA—March 05, 2012— Prepare for battle & defend your walls! Cross into the realm of evil King Maelnik in StickWars 3 , the third installment in the #1 rated castle defense series for iOS, which has been downloaded over 10 million times.


In StickWars 2 , players aided King Otto in the defeat of the insidious King Maelnik in a decisive victory over the evil stick overlord. Now, players get the chance to play as Maelnik as he exacts his revenge on Otto in an attempt to repair his bruised ego and regain his self-esteem. Years of intense personal empowerment therapy and anger mastery sessions have made Maelnik meaner than ever and now he’s back to prove to the world he really is the baddest stick in the land.

“Otto’s silly game was child’s play compared to what I’m about to unleash in StickWars 3 ,” said King Maelnik. “With its amazing new graphics, new user interface and improved strategic gameplay, StickWars 3 is superior to Otto’s game in every conceivable way. Not only do I have cooler spells and powers, but with my Soul Pit (the latest in cutting edge necromantic technology) I’ll turn Otto’s own forces into members of my (mostly) undead army and use them to crush anything that stands in my way! Muahahahahahaa!!”

StickWars 3 will feature:

Maelnik’s (Mostly) Undead Army  – Command some of the nastiest sticks you’ve seen yet. Use power forged from the darkest magic of Maelnik’s realm to cast devastating spells, bolster your defenses with zombie archers, and even send the Reaper himself into battle to stand your ground against King Otto’s forces.

Improved Strategic Gameplay  – Maelnik isn’t the only one with new tricks up his sleeve. You’ll have to use more than just finger flicking to defend your castle against new enemies such as Diggers and explosive flamethrower units.

The Wheel of Despair  – Try your luck with Maelnik’s Wheel of Despair and conjure up treasures and power-ups such as Infinite Mana, Summon Demon, Soul Harvest, Demon Shield and more!

OpenFeint – Earn Open Feint Points and Achievements, while you help King Otto get his groove back on.

StickWars 3 will be available for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch end of March, so get your finger ready for some of the craziest stick-flinging action you’ve seen yet!
