Battle Dungeon is a brand new multiplayer, turn-based strategy game, from the team at Hunted Cow.
Battle Dungeon offers a level of depth and complexity normally associated with PC-based strategy games, but optimised and designed for the latest generation of iOS devices – iPads, iPhones and iPods.
The game allows players to put together a party of warriors, archers and priests, then practice against AI players, or real world opponent, or play competitively against others, all around the world. In the best video games tradition, the goal is to wipe out the other party and take over the entire dungeon.
Battle Dungeon has three distinct character classes – each of which can use two unique abilities and choose from three classes of weapons. The game contains hundreds of separate items, which allow players to customise and create their perfect party of up to 30 members.
The company tells us that the game includes:
- Amazing Fully 3D Graphics
- 3 Unique Classes
- 9 Weapon Combinations
- 18 Unique Skills
- Fully Orchestrated Soundtrack
- 6 Beautiful Crafted Levels to Battle Across
- Over 100 items to customize your soldiers
- Hours of Gameplay
- Online Leaderboards
- Game Center Achievements
- Universal App (Works on iPhone & iPad)
Hunted Cow is putting the finishing touches to the game, which is due for release in the next several weeks. Battle Dungeon is already in open beta, with players providing feedback and input to the company, to ensure it is as robust as possible.
Andrew Mulholland, the co-founder and CEO of Hunted Cow told us:
“We are very proud to announce Battle Dungeon. We’re all huge strategy gamers and it’s a game very close to our hearts. We’ve taken everything we’ve learned from our most successful online titles, such as Fallen Sword and Gothador, with our more recent experience with turn-based strategy gaming on iOS with Tank Battle: 1944 and Civil War: 1863.
“We think we’ve created something which will hit the sweet spot for strategy gamers everywhere. It offers the depth, the challenge and long-term playability that we know strategy fans love, but tailored specifically for the touch-input and shorter game sessions of the latest generation of iOS devices. We’ll be announcing the release date for Battle Dungeon in the near future and we’re looking forward to making it available to players all over the world in the next several weeks.”
While iOS gaming has blossomed in the last several years, many of the more experienced PC and console gamers have complained that the titles on offer are too simplistic and ‘casual’ to appeal to those who have dedicated games devices. Battle Dungeon builds on Hunted Cow’s experience with browser-based massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) and their more recent iOS strategy titles, such as Civil War: 1863. The company’s goal was to build a game with more sophistication, depth and complexity, which would appeal directly to existing gamers and those looking for a greater challenge on their iOS devices.
The release date for Battle Dungeon is due to be announced in the near future. In the meantime, you can find out more about the game on the game’s website. You can also follow Hunted Cow on Twitter or Like the company on Facebook for all of the latest information.
