</end silly pirate voice>
OK Desktop Armada doesn’t have pirates in it, but it is a game involving ships and I don’t need much of an excuse to talk like a pirate :o)
As I reported in our last post Paul has been working on the 3rd multiplayer game for the Casual Collective “Desktop Armada”
The aim of the game is simple, use your base to build ships, give them instructions on what path to take and send them on their way. The other player is doing the same and any ships that pass in range of each other engage. There are 4 different ships, all with their own unique abilities and all can be upgraded 2 times.
The game play is great fun, there is fog of war so you can’t see what ships the other player is making nor where they are sending them, you may think you have the other player on the run only to see a whole fleet of ships emerge out of the fog and hammer your base to pieces! Of course it is even more fun when you send ships down the edge of the map and flank the artillery of your enemy :o) We hope to get Desktop Armada up as a BETA very soon for upgraded members to host and all members to play (the same way Buggle worked when it was BETA)
Talking of Buggle… it is very close to losing it’s BETA armbands as we believe all the bugs with the scores and different opperating systems playing together are now fixed, once this is done work can start on adding more modes as well as the very cool “Super Powers” mode… prepare to explode some buggles!
Until next time, Aarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!
