UTV TRUE GAMES ANNOUNCES MORE DETAILS BEHIND THE COMBAT MECHANICS IN ITS UPCOMING BROWSER TITLE, PLANET CRASHERS

Austin, TEXAS - November 9, 2010 - UTV True Games, an international developer and publisher of multi-player online games today announced the details behind the combat aspects of Planet Crashers, its upcoming 3D social online game, developed on the Unity Engine and released first for Browser (followed by a mid-2011 release on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch).

The highly stylized, competitive game is developed internally at UTV True Games and will feature humorous battles and collaborative play across multiple platforms, while the mobile versions will launch with unique features such as a GPS system that gives bonuses for teaming up or battling against players in their local area. The browser version will be available in early 2011.  To learn more about the game visit  www.planetcrashers.com.

In Planet Crashers, social combat is king. Offline battles continue the action when players are away, but every victory or defeat is stored for viewing and bragging rights once the player returns!

The combat in Planet Crashers is uniquely designed to provide a balance between the new and the hardcore PVP gamers.  Combat is influenced by the decisions players make before the battle instead of frantic button-mashing in game.  Equip avatars for battle, set their stats, and choose the right kind of armor to help lead your avatar to victory.  In addition, balance is also achieved with environmental disasters that can happen anytime, anyplace, and against any player, such as lightning strikes on a stormy planet, or a rogue mouse attack on the cheese planet!  Players who dare to battle on the Cheese Planet must be wary of the protective giant mouse that bites an unlucky player!

Planet Crashers features random-ruled combat, so naturally, items from the cash shop that influence combat are also chance based.  Some items can be earned with enough experience; while others such as vanity, holiday, and consumable items can be purchased to enhance the game play experience.

Planet Crashers is a uniquely casual, yet undeniably hardcore social combat game set in a vivid cartoon world full of fast-paced battles, oddly unique weapons, and various planet types that affects the outcome of skirmishes.  Players can customize their avatars, find friends to battle, and take revenge upon those who have defeated you.

Planet Crashers makes it easy for players to jump in and start the fight with simple and intuitive controls. Players will be able to customize characters from head to toe, upgrade weapons and purchase consumables with just a few simple taps.  Planet Crashers provides a uniquely casual, yet undeniably hardcore, fast-paced experience every time.
