Ares Updated to Version 1.2.0
9:14 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software, Inc. recently distributed a press release announcing that
Ares, their "tactical Inter-networkable space battle game," has been updated
to version 1.2.0. For those unfamiliar with the title, Ares is an action/strategy game
in which players must manage and protect planets, increase their manufacturing capacity, and
construct armadas with which they can wage interplanetary war. Strategy is emphasized more than
strength, allowing a player with weaker resources to still have the ability to decisively crush a stronger
opponent with the right maneuvers.

This update is free for registered users of Ares and includes
"Hera," a full-featured senario editor that lets players modify existing senarios (including
the built-in ones), create their own senarios, and play senarios created by other

Ambrosia's president, Andrew Welch, had this comment:

Sure, Ares is an older game. However, it still kicks ass, especially for net
play -- and now that we've unleashed a scenario editor on the
creative hordes of Ares addicts, we expect to see Ares live on
for quite some time with new and interesting user-created
scenarios. See you on GameRanger!
The update and the game itself are available for download on Ambrosia's homepage at the link below. There's also
more information and screenshots of Ares for those that are interested in more information.
