HandyGames™ presents Sturmtrupp Mars– Operation Roasted Bugs

In this new action-strategy-blockbuster Sturmtrupp Mars– Operation Roasted Bugs, HandyGames™ sends its fans to the red planet, which is threatened by hordes of extraterrestrial bugs. The player takes command of the armed forces on Mars and fights those alien beasts whose only goal is to annihilate mankind!

In 25 gripping missions with huge battlefields, defensive works have to be built and attacking waves have to be stopped. 15 different types of buildings, a sophisticated tech-tree, 12 powerups and a ranking-system are at the player’s disposal.

„HandyGames™ is well-known for its complex strategy-titles since many years. In 2007, we want to take a step further and– with Sturmtrupp Mars– open a new chapter concerning the genre of action-strategy.“, says Markus Kassulke, CEO of the German mobile games developer.„Even better, we are currently working on a surprise concerning realtime-strategy which will be ready for Christmas season!“

…The command-ship slowly lands at the recently built base. There’s not much time - the scanners already have detected approaching waves of the extraterrestrial plague! The commander positions the first laser towers and mercenaries quickly! Available resources have to be used wisely to build new defensive works, to research, to upgrade buildings or to repair damaged units. The player has to withstand countless attacks and he needs to adapt to the different types of enemies that - by land, in the air and even beneath the planet’s surface - make his life a living hell! Power-ups like deadly bombs, dazers or mega armours help him in the almost hopeless battle. There’s no time to rest, because as soon as the intelligent hordes of bugs have found the HQ, their only goal is to destroy it!

Strategic skills alone decide on the survival of the Mars colonies! The challenge has to be accepted and those beasts need to be sent back to where they came from!

Sturmtrupp Mars– Operation Roasted Bugs starts its mission on July 10th 2007.
