Hong Kong - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Indie developer Akashan Games launched its first title Elder Towers on

Google Play Store. Elder Towers is a deck-building RTS/RPG game heavily

inspired by the old titles Magic: the Gathering - Shandalar and

Sacrifice. Defying the common trend of casual simple gameplay on mobile,

the game is instead aimed at hardcore gamers who would enjoy a serious

strategy game. Elder Towers offers the strategical complexity of a

deck-building collectible card game, and translates the deep game

mechanism into intuitive fast-paced gameplay with exciting visuals.

Features:

  • TCG game mechanisms realized in real-time 3D environment
  • Free-roaming single-player campaign
  • Multiplayer duel
  • 160 mind-boggling spells
  • 104 summoned units, fully animated 3D characters
  • 3 character classes with powerful class-specific feats
  • Fast-paced gameplay designed for 5~10 minute matches

Like Sacrifice, the game is a third-person view RTS where you summon

creatures to fight for you, and cast a variety of spells to support

them. However unit micro-management is taken out in order to allow the

players to focus on other aspects of the game. The players get to choose

their summons from a large pool of attacker units, defender units,

bodyguards units, etc, of varying costs, strength, and special

abilities. All those units fight autonomously according to their AI

types.

Like Magic: the Gathering - Shandalar, the players are given a very

limited set of spells at the beginning of the game, and shall gradually

collect more and better spells, summons, artifacts and special feats, as

they brave through the free-roaming game world. They shall test their

decks against many different opponents, while they keep on hunting for

new spells and improving the decks.

Elder Towers is released as a free-to-play game with most of the

contents offered for free, including the full single-player campaign and

cross-platform online duel. Some of the game contents are to be bought

as in-app purchases.

The game is now available on Google Play Store for Android. The iOS

version is pending for Apple approval and will soon be available as

well.
