FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mini Robot Wars: A Fresh New Tower Defense Released for PC
Bangkok, Thailand -- July 11, 2011 -- Picsoft Studio is very pleased to announce the launch of Mini Robot WarsTM, a fresh new side-view tower defense game with cartoon graphics and fast paced action.
In Mini Robot Wars, the aim is to help the cute little alien robots defend their planet against an invading horde of evil machines, seeking to turn it into a space resort. The player must gather resources and build robots to act as defensive units and fight their enemies. The game features simple gameplay while retaining plenty of depth, with a large number of units, upgrades and unlockables and a variety of mini-games.
Mini Robot Wars has a unique gameplay mechanic; instead of the typical 'path system' adopted by most tower defense games, it uses a platform-like approach common in side-scrolling shooter games. The enemy's movement is thus not defined by a path but rather by its type.
"Our initial ideas came from the old school side-scrolling shooters like Gradius and Contra," said Soun Hanwong, producer and designer of Mini Robot Wars. "In those games there are enemies in the air and on the ground that can move in different ways, while the player has many weapons, such as a laser and spread gun, to even the odds. How much fun would this be as a tower defense game?"
Mini Robot Wars is now available for PC, downloadable at leading game portals including Big Fish Games, GameHouse and Impulse for $9.99 USD.
Mini Robot Wars features:
· 150 levels in story mode spanning 3 episodes, each with its own storyline and distinctive gameplay.
· 40 mini robots to choose from, including Bubble Bot, Snow Baller and Mama Factory.
· Battle against 32 different enemy types over 5 areas - Grasslands, Desert, Underwater, Glaciers and the Iron Fortress.
· 30 arcade style mini-games including shooting, action, puzzle and boss fight.
· Lots of achievements, unlockables and upgrades.
