Jet Set Games has released Highborn a turn-based strategy game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Highborn is casual, turn-based strategy game with a twist, developed by a team of industry veterans, many of who created the original Command and Conquer products. More about the game:
In Highborn, players are treated to two strategy games that combine to offer an intelligent, tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS. Players move forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue and wild assumptions.
* A Light Touch ? Highborn is a casual mobile strategy game that offers a satisfying experience for players, no matter if they spend minutes or hours in the game. * Time for a New Strategy ? Highborn features a unique blend of strategic movement and 3D combat that caters to a variety of gameplay styles and offers a great deal of replayability. * Multiplay at Your Pace ? Turn-based gaming enables players to think, then act, when playing one-on-one against their Facebook friends, and allows them to have multiple games going at once. * Many Styles of Play ? Players unlock hero characters as they progress through the game, giving them access to different abilities and play styles, along with different strategies to use against their opponents.
Jet Set Games is planning to release additional single- and multi-player gameplay for Highborn in the form of in-app downloadable content. The company is also finalizing an iPad-specific version of Highborn for release later this summer, pricing to be announced.
Highborn is currently available on Apple?s iTunes App Store (http://itunes.com/app/Highborn) for a limited-time, introductory price of $2.99.
