Hamburg, Germany, 20 July 2010– The action-packed arcade game Earth Defender, which is now available for the iPhone TM , iPad TM , and iPod TM touch, calls for more than just good reflexes and tactical fire to defend the Earth against hordes of aliens.
Players have a well-equipped arsenal of weapons under their control. The standard repertoire includes blast bombs, which cause gigantic explosions, all-devouring black hole bombs, and electric lightning bombs. With skillful aiming, bombs can spread over every opponent, triggering enormous chain reactions. As a last resort, players have five superbombs that destroy or heavily damage every enemy in sight.
Long-term motivation is provided by a variety of achievements, which are earned through especially skilled placement of bombs and chain reactions and can be shared with friends via Facebook or Twitter. On-line highscore lists motivate international competition.
An hour of action-packed arcade fun awaits players on six different levels of increasing difficulty and a variety of bosses, until they have fought their way through to the gigantic mother ship. Since game progress can be saved anytime, players can also enjoy short sessions whenever they want.
‘Because we have not had an arcade game with such simple yet captivating game play for casual gaming in our portfolio so far, Earth Defender is an ideal addition to our complex, hard-core programme,’ says Michael Schade, CEO of FISHLABS Entertainment GmbH.‘This is why we are publishing a title from another developer for the first time and are offering our marketing know-how to support the talented, young developer studio ANIMA Entertainment, from Bremen, who have created a terrific action game with Earth Defender.’
