6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

Freeverse and Slitherine have announced the upcoming release of Commander: Napoleon at War for the Mac. The exact release date has not yet been set. Commander: Napoleon at War is the second game in the Commander series, expanding upon the Commander: Europe at War engine. Commander: Napoleon at War challenges players to use the weapons and warriors of the Napoleonic era to succeed in the game's historical campaigns.

More about the game:

In Commander - Napoleon at War, players must use the combined arms of infantry, cavalry and artillery combined with the innovations and strategies of the Napoleonic wars to secure victory. Play on a beautifully rendered map of Napoleonic Europe, where terrain and weather play a large role and mud and snow may bog down your army at a crucial time. Logistics are also modeled, with supply lines, resources and sieges and the use of privateers and naval superiority to stifle trade routes. Players have twelve unit types to choose from as well as fifteen research paths, and eight immersive historical campaigns from 1805 through 1815!

Apple Games Features Lode Runner For iPod
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Apple Games recently posted a new game article featuring Lode Runner for iPod. The game brings the action puzzle adventure of the classic game to Apple's iPod multimedia devices. Apple's article includes an overivew of the game's features as well as a list of tips and tricks for success.

Begin your underground adventure with 50 levels of strategic action at standard difficulty before moving to the 60 levels found between the expert and master modes. In puzzle mode’s 20 levels, robots won’t besiege you, but the gold is fiendishly difficult to recover, putting your strategic thinking skills to the test.

If you’d rather try an altogether different sort of challenge, check out gold rush mode, in which you race through 5,000 or 10,000 yards of floors and ladders, grabbing as much gold as you can and avoiding robots along the way to your final destination. Just don’t fall behind or drop off the bottom of the screen. There’s also an endless option, if you don’t want a finish line.

This latest incarnation of Lode Runner builds on a long history stretching back to 1983 and its initial release on the Apple II, as well as other home computers of that era. It has attracted legions of fans along the way, including Tetris creator Alexei Pajitnov, who has said of it: “I consider it a real puzzle game. That was my favorite for many, many years. It’s such a good combination of dynamic stuff, the finger-work, and real planning and puzzle-solving … I can’t imagine any other game with such inventive and unusual design.”
