Unique “Spell Fighter” Runic Rumble Announced for iOS, Android

New South Wales, Australia—Sept. 18, 2012—And now for something completely different: Runic Rumble —a wild, unpredictable fighting game where spells can be deadly. Runic Rumble can now be downloaded for $2.99, and it’s available for Android and iOS.

Players were first introduced to 2D fighting games in Capcom’s Street Fighter II: The World Warrior—and in 1993, Sega’s Virtua Fighter defined the modern 3D fighter. Now, Runic Rumble takes a new turn in the fighting genre with a 2.5D perspective, precise gesture-based controls, and Retina graphics filled with unbelievable particle effects—the likes of which players have never seen on mobile.

The game is set on the world of Ámorrá, a brand new universe concocted by Epiphany Games. In Ámorrá, some things are exactly as they seem . . . and others are anything but. Aki, a Shaman, is on a mission to become a Great Wizard. A mischievous little creature with a sharp mind (and even sharper tongue), Aki has just escaped the bonds of servitude. Short in stature and fearless, Aki will not stop until he unlocks new, ever-more-powerful spells and discovers the origins of his people.

One night, while creeping around an eerie, deserted campsite looking for food and maybe the odd trinket to pocket, Aki is accosted by a powerful and mysterious Entity. Enraged by Aki’s trespass, the Entity transports Aki to another dimension where he is forced to fight for the Entity’s entertainment. Will Aki be able to escape—or will the Entity enslave Aki’s soul forever?

“Special moves were always our favorite gameplay mechanic in fighting games,” says Morgan Lean, founder and CEO of Epiphany Games. “ Runic Rumble takes the concept of a ‘Hadouken’ and builds an entire game around attacking and defending with magic. Runic Rumble’s beautiful graphics and gesture-based controls are the perfect introduction to the magical world of Ámorrá.”
