The Townsmen are back– harder than ever
Thursday, January, 17th - The legendary Townsmen series of mobile games, developed by Handy Games for Disney Mobile Studios, returns this month with the launch of Townsmen 5. The latest instalment of the popular strategy game series brings two challenging game modes that will keep players mentally occupied for hours and hours. 14 different campaigns as well as a“never-ending” mode with six scenarios add further variety.
From the monk to the oppressor
In Townsmen 5, you play a merciless robber baron, you will oppress other settlements and confirm your influence by imposing excessive taxes. Beer will no longer be brewed in the monastery, but in the settlements. You can create new buildings, add loyal subjects and druids as you expand your own town as a powerful base for launching further conquests.
New story line
The only one who can disrupt the onslaught of the despotic baron is the white wizard Celdron, whose dragons constantly undermine your continuous expansion. If a player captures a dragon, their blood can be used to make potions to power up your hoards of knights and make them invincible (well nearly invincible!).
A new feature in Townsmen 5 allows for“fast forwarding” to skip time when building or collecting resources and an automatic save function ensures that progress is not lost.
“Townsmen 5 is clearly a favourite with gamers across Europe and has grown with each instalment. It is very much the type of game our customers enjoy in that it is easy to pick up and play, but very rewarding the more you get into the detail,” commented Sunil Gunderia, VP Mobile EMEA, Walt Disney Internet Group.
