Republic of Fun today announced the release of Slug Wars, their first self-published game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Slug Wars is a real-time strategy game that brings to light the epic battles fought by brave slugs in yards across the nation.
Slug Wars is all about managing unit queues for maximum impact on the battlefield. Slug units move down one of three lanes to reach the enemy base, engaging enemies along the way. Players carefully utilize eight different types of combat slugs, ranging from slow-moving (even for a slug!) tanks to salt-shaker-wielding kamikazes to defend their base from the slug onslaught while trying to capture their enemy?s base. Effectively selecting the order to release slug units is the key to success in this surprisingly deep, yet easy to play strategy game.
Slug Wars is pick-up-and-play strategy fun for one or two players. Play against the computer in Campaign and Skirmish modes, or challenge a friend to ?Slug-It-Out? to victory. Slug Wars is now available in the App Store for $1.99.
