Ankama, a French company with a focus MMO games, have recently announced that their strategy arcade game Tactile Wars is now available on iOS in New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and Finland as a soft launch. Despite it being a limited release, we’re told that the global release is scheduled for later this summer. Tactile Wars is a totally new IP (Intellectual Property) designed by Ankama, which previously released strategy games DOFUS: Battles on the App Store. This time around Ankama developed a totally different experience by mixing strategy and arcade elements.
In Tactile Wars, players are the general of an army of mini-soldier pigments, armed with paint guns. The objective of the game is to conquer the other players’ territories with colorful blasts of paint. Players take control of their troops via intuitive touch gameplay and dynamic gestures to create their squad formation according to approaching enemies. The tactical possibilities of the game make for intense battles — infantry, mines, tanks, turrets, mercenary recruitment, troop upgrades, and alliances with other players are all ways to make your the best it can be.
