Atari’s action packed multiplayer game Warlords hits the XBLA and PSN with a dose of dragon thrown in for good measure. The game is all about defense whilst keeping an eye on your fellow opponents and is available now for 800 MSP/$9.99. Take a look at some screenshots and game info, and of course, there’s a trial version to download to see what it’s all about.
Warlords is a one-to-four player arcade action game in which players will defend their castles from a maniacal dragon, unleashing a torrent of fireballs and crafty minions against their strongholds. In this whimsical reinvention of the beloved classic, players will face the ultimate battle of speed, strategy and survival. In addition, the game will increasingly challenge players to multitask as they strive to shield the castle walls and simultaneously rally troops to capture control points, collect power-ups and destroy the other warring factions – either alone or alongside three other players.
- Protect the stronghold! Defend your castle walls from the destruction of fast-flying fireballs with your mighty shield. Move the shield around the perimeter of your castle with precision and speed to deflect the fireballs or grab onto and charge fireballs to release even more devastating attacks back at your opponents.
- Multiple local/online game modes sweeten the quest for power and allow for cooperative and competitive battles with up to 4 players. Select the faction of your choice and engage in a number of competitive variations, including co-op siege mode, 2v2 or classic free-for-all battles.
- Rally your troops and pit them against your foes. Your loyal posse brings a layer of depth and replayability to every battle and can be sent off to capture control points, gather power-ups to immobilize your enemies or bolster your defenses. Manage your troops wisely to gain the battlefield advantage!
