You have to commend Ronimo Games for attempting to design an RTS game specifically for consoles rather than try their hardest to cram the PC RTS design onto a console and gamepad. It works for consoles but the limited design hurts the game, now that it’s on a platform where RTS games flourish.
Big Week for Swords & Soldiers!
Swords & Soldiers lands on PC & Mac, gets Move support & new demo on PS3
UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS – December 1, 2010 This week the armies of Swords & Soldiers bring their tactical action gameplay to different shores yet again! After duking it out on the pearly white beaches of the WiiWare service the brutal Vikings, the vicious Aztecs and the devious Chinese arrived last month at the pitch black moutains of the awe-inpsiring PlayStation®3 system. Infusing the game with a new innovative online mode and eye-poking HD & 3D graphics the PS3 version exposed console gamers to the glory of cartoon warfare in a way never before seen on this planet. And now the Swords & Axes have been sharpened to do it all over again: Swords & Soldiers has arrived on PC & Mac! So now the everlasting wars are no longer contained to the living room. Featuring the same 30 level single player campaign, customisable skirmishes, 3 highscore bonus games and Steam powered online functionality, the PC version has every bit of brawn as the PS3 version. So support us by buying it from our store (http://ronimo-games.com/SwordsAndSoldiers/html/store.html) or get it from Steam! Both routes will get you the Steam enabled version which can then be installed on Windows as well as OSX.
UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS – October 19, 2010
Tomorrow, October 20th, the PlayStation®Network hit Swords & Soldiers will be available to European PS3 players! Move support is also coming soon! Giving PS3 owners the first chance to prove what is best: motion or dual analog controls. So take your thirst for battle online and dominate the rankings with your favorite controller.
Swords and Soldiers, the simplified RTS game originally released on WiiWare more than a year ago, has made its way onto the Playstation Network. While losing the Wii’s motion controls (the Move is not supported), the Playstation version adds a variety of new features, including updated graphics, a strong competitive multiplayer component, and addictive leader boards. Is it a fair trade off? (more…)
See how it all works.
