A very cool lemmings game, Age of Tribes is coming out this Friday (Feb 5) to the iTunes App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. Here is some info on this upcoming game:
As the leader of a small group of natives from different eras, it's your mission to lead the members of your clan home safely. Not that simple, since your tribe members trust you blindly and would readily follow any path you present them with.
You determine the way home simply by skillfully drawing stairs with your finger. Tap the screen once to start a new stairway - then move the finger to the point where the stairs should end and stop touching the screen. The newly created path only exist for a few seconds - so it depends on the right timing. You can make up to 8 paths at a time. Wrong way set? Simply erase it with the virtual "rubber" icon. The group members will happily follow any path that you draw for them. And this way, with a little bit of luck, you'll make sure that all of the clan members reach their home safely. In the process, watch out for dangerous traps and take care that your people don't fall down to far.
To complete a level you have to lead a set amount of members home safely - you'll find the exact amount at the top edge of the screen next to the time display.
Thanks to the implemention of the Plus+ social networking platform you have the opportunity to save your required time into an online highscore list after each successfully completed level. The less time you need for a level, the higher your achievement will be rated. Special achievments for solving levels in a pre-defined timeframe are available. And even more awards for saving all tribe members and for an outstanding playtime are waiting for you.
