ROYAL REVOLT 2 released worldwide

Sequel to flaregames’ successful action strategy game hits App Store

KARLSRUHE 27/2/2014 – flaregames, a leading publisher and developer of mobile games, announced today that their long-awaited mobile game  Royal Revolt 2 has been released on iOS. The game is free to download from the App Store worldwide and in more than a dozen languages.

Royal Revolt 2, the sequel to the international smash hit Royal Revolt!, is a beautiful 3D tower defense game with a new twist, the ability to play offense. Players build castles and defensive installations – and attack each other for gold and fame!

The game has already garnered its first accolade: The prestigious International Mobile Game Awards nominated it for inclusion in the ‘Best upcoming game’ category.

‘The team spent 18 months of hard work building on the strengths of Royal Revolt!. The vision and dedication has finally come to fruition, Royal Revolt 2 is now out in the wild. We’re quite happy to see how players, partners and media enjoy our latest creation. And yet, our work has just begun: Our Frankfurt studio is already busy building new features and extra content for the next updates.’ said Klaas Kersting, Founder and CEO of flaregames.

About the Royal Revolt series

Royal Revolt! was published in 2012 on iOS, Android, Amazon Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Mac. It has been downloaded more than 10,000,000 times and is still played by about 100,000 gamers each day. It won a number of awards, among them the German Game Developer’s Award 2012.

Royal Revolt 2 was released on iOS today, with an Android version already in Beta. Like its predecessor, Royal Revolt II brings new game design elements to the Tower Defense genre. Royal Revolt! reversed the tower defense genre by putting players in the role of the attacker instead of defender. The successor brings its own unique innovation to the genre. For the first time, players take on both roles, defending and attacking. In impressive 3D, players can now set up their own castles and build extensive defenses with walls, traps and powerful towers. All this can be easily created with a few touches using the new intuitive construction mode. Combined with improved attacking gameplay from Royal Revolt!, players blend the two activities to accumulate gold and fame.

The series is developed by Keen Flare, flaregames’ Frankfurt studio.
