Star Defense 3.0 Update
With the advent of 3.0, Star Defense allows players to expand their campaigns and compete with friends via Direct Challenges. In addition to Twitter, Facebook & email, players can send Direct Challenges via Push Notification Service to their friends over the Plus+ network, a free service for the iPhone gaming community. After registering for Plus+, gamers can challenge & play against the world, earn rewards, and discover more of the games they like.
“ngmoco is excited by the new opportunities for gameplay afforded by iPhone OS 3.0,” said Neil Young, CEO and founder of ngmoco. “Direct Challenges via Push Notification Service provide a compelling, new way for Star Defense fans to stay connected anytime, anywhere.”
In addition to 3.0 support and Plus+ network integration, the latest Star Defense update also includes a new planet in Challenge Mode. Players can track their challenge scores on live leaderboards and compare their rankings with players across the globe.
Developed in collaboration with Rough Cookie, ngmoco released Star Defense on June 8 to great critical acclaim. An innovative take on the classic strategy genre, Star Defense evolves the tower defense category with incredible, dynamic 3D environments, Multi-Touch user interface controls and innovative gameplay.
With seven unique planets, two different game modes, more than 50 Medals and Commendations to be earned on the field, and three different difficulty settings available at launch, Star Defense offers endless replayability for newcomers and war-hardened veterans alike.
Star Defense is available now for $5.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/
Star Defense follows the success of ngmoco’s premium hit Rolando (http://rolando.ngmoco.com/), the innovative word-puzzler WordFu (http://wordfu.ngmoco.com/), the action-packed arcade shooter Dropship (http://dropship.ngmoco.com/), comic-style microsurgery game Dr. Awesome (http://drawesome.ngmoco.com/) and the special effects-laden action hit MazeFinger (http://mazefinger.ngmoco.com).
“ngmoco is excited to include iPhone OS 3.0 functionality in our award winning Topple 2,” said Neil Young, CEO and Founder of ngmoco. “This update will give users more control of their iPod music and is a perfect follow-up to our previous social and game-play expanding updates.”
iPhone OS 3.0 will give developers more control and functionality to personalize their games for the ultimate iPhone and iPod touch gaming experience. The latest Topple 2 update will allow users to have full control over their iPod music playlists so they can stack to their own groove.
Topple 2 version 1.3 follows previous updates which allowed users to send multiplayer challenges through Facebook and Twitter and allowing users to see other player’s scores from around the world and have a chance to compete directly with them.
Building on the fast-paced gameplay mechanics introduced in Topple, the innovative Multi-Touch user interface and accelerometer technologies of the iPhone and iPod touch challenges users to balance and stack fun, playful Topple blocks without tipping over.
In Topple 2, players take on all-new challenges and new game modes, experiencing over 30 different levels and six brand new Topple worlds. Upside-down mode inverts gravity for a topsy-turvy play experience while Balance mode weighs two towers against each other. Power Tower mode challenges players to construct a power line using conductive blocks, and Rescue mode integrates tower building skills to save the precious golden egg.
Armed with all new skill sets, Topple 2 introduces two unique ways for fans to play and enjoy the game with their friends. Players can go head-to-head in a real-time multiplayer “stack attack” over WiFi. Or, if a player is on the go, they can simply send “ghost” play-through requests for friends to accept challenges at their leisure. With free play versions of all game modes and the ability to challenge and play with friends, Topple 2 will delight players of all ages time and time again.
Topple 2 is available for the price of $2.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at (http://appstore.ngmoco.com/topple2).
