LAS VEGAS, NV– August 2, 2010– Jet Set Games TM today announced that Highborn TM , the critically and commercially successful turn-based strategy game, is now available with high-resolution artwork as Highborn HD on the iPad for an introductory price of $2.99.
Highborn HD, now live on the iTunes App Store at http://itunes.com/app/HighbornHD features re-designed maps with enhanced, high-resolution graphics.
“Highborn HD on the iPad really showcases the hand-drawn maps and the higher-resolution artwork we’ve been working hard on over the past few months,” said Rade Stojsavljevic, president of Jet Set Games.“It’s gorgeous, and well worth the price, even if you’ve already purchased the iPhone version. Especially now that the OpenFeint integration allows for multiplayer gaming against all iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch Highborn gamers.”
In Highborn, players are treated to two strategy games that combine to offer an intelligent, tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS. Players move forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue and wild assumptions.
- <*> A Light Touch– Highborn is a casual mobile strategy game that offers a satisfying experience for players, no matter if they spend minutes or hours in the game.*> <*> Time for a New Strategy– Highborn features a unique blend of strategic movement and 3D combat that caters to a variety of gameplay styles and offers a great deal of replayability.*> <*> Multiplay at Your Pace– Turn-based gaming enables players to think, then act, in round-based play via OpenFeint’s 30-million-person community. Players can have multiple games going at once, and can trash-talk their opponents in player-to-player chat.*> <*> Many Styles of Play– Players unlock hero characters as they progress through the game, giving them access to different abilities and play styles, along with different strategies to use against their opponents.*> <*> Achieve Greatness– More than 20 single- and multiplayer achievements to unlock, including judicious use of turns, using units as bait, and making it through an entire mission without capturing support structures.*>
