City Conquest (Canceled)
A mobile strategy game that combines the best of tower defense and real-time strategy and supports both single-player and multiplayer.
City Conquest is an innovative new strategy game for iPad 2+, iPhone/iPod 4+, and high-end Android phones and tablets. It combines luscious, high-resolution tower-defense gameplay with a new game mechanic that allows multiple players to send creeps against one another.
This results in a new form of gameplay that has the simplicity, accessibility, and addictive gameplay of tower defense, with much of the strategic depth and competitive multiplayer support of an RTS (and without the unit micromanagement of an RTS).
City Conquest includes:
- 9 Defensive tower types (most have 1 or 2 additional upgrade levels) -- see Update 5 for an introduction to the defensive towers
- 9 Offensive unit types (all have 4 upgrade levels) -- see Update 3 for an introduction to the units
- 4 Powerful mothership-based game effects (spells)
The game will feature a full single-player campaign, a set of challenge missions, an extensive tutorial, and a set of multiplayer missions. All single-player missions will include at least 3 difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, and Hard).
In addition to the competitive gameplay, City Conquest also features two resource types and territorial control dynamics.
The full version of City Conquest will be priced at approximately $4.99 in the App Store. We also plan to release a free "lite" version with a limited selection of missions and limited upgrade levels.
State of the Game
City Conquest is 6 months into development. The gameplay code is 100% complete (excluding computer player AI) and all in-game art and sound content are also now 100% complete.
The game's single-player AI is being developed by a recognized expert in game artificial intelligence with 17 years of industry experience.
Hotseat multiplayer will be available at launch, and we are hoping to add WiFi multiplayer in a post-launch update.
Your support will help us add WiFi multiplayer support in a post-launch update and allow us to build additional missions and commission additional music for the game.
