STOCKHOLM

2008-11-27

Renowned mobile gaming innovators Polarbit announced today the release of their latest title for the iPhone and iPod Touch: the groundbreaking 3D shoot’em-up / flight simulator Armageddon Squadron.

Armageddon Squadron gives players the chance to try their wings with the best known aircraft of the WWII era in a variety of mission types and environments. Mission objectives include bombing and strafing raids against facilities and convoys, protection of ground troops against enemy aircraft and, of course, action-packed dogfights against enemy aces. The game features smooth accelerometer controls making flying a joy and 3D graphics rivalling anything hitherto seen in an AppStore title.

Says Anders Nilsson, co-founder and CTO at Polarbit:

“Armageddon Squadron represents a slight departure for us in terms of gameplay style compared to Raging Thunder, WaveBlazer and Crash Nitro Kart. It proves beyond any doubt that Polarbit are capable of delivering top-notch games regardless of genre or game type.”

While the initial release of Armageddon Squadron does not feature multiplayer functionality, Polarbit would like to stress that both local WiFi and online functionality is slated for an imminent application update.
