Box Battle – A Steampunk Artillery Physics Game for iPhone Announced
Stavropol, Russia – MaxNick today is pleased to announce the release of Box Battle 1.0.1, a meticulously constructed, physics based puzzle game for the iPhone and iPad. Operating an advanced, steam-powered artillery cannon, players apply a mix of cunning, precision shooting, and brute force to blast their way through 130 industrially themed puzzles. Each copper-piped level offers unique fortification types and challenging tasks.
Set 40 years into the the the Quark-Tulan war, players start out as elite cannoneers tasked with destroying the resources stored in the elaborate Tulan barricades. Players drag and orient the cannon’s breach mechanism to control the pitch and velocity of their shots. As they progress, they unlock 10 types of ammunition, with the more destructive and extravagant shell types costing more points. Players must strategically choose from their arsenal to smash, blast, freeze and bounce their way to victory.
Like a Victorian Age clock, Box Battle includes many small, interlocking parts that improve dramatically on the standard progression of level based puzzlers. There are numerous military ranks from Common Recruit to First Cannoneer of the Empire. Medals are awarded each level, and optional tasks let players dynamically adjust the game-play difficulty to match their play style. Completing tasks provides score multipliers that help speed players through the ranks that contribute to each players rating on global leaderboards.
“We designed BoxBattle to immerse players in the highly detailed, polished brass, steam-powered universe, then take full advantage of the powerful iOS physics engine to build compelling puzzles,” says Co-Founder Nikolay Verevkin. “We’ve built tons of fun and varied gameplay into Box Battle and we’re exited to create even more!”
