Brass Hats Released

Brass Hats, a new turn based strategy game, has been released by the independent developer Square Earth Games. The game offers a 28 mission campaign and puts players in the role of a high ranking officer, or "Brass Hat," who must successfully lead infantry, early tanks, biplanes, and naval ships to victory.

Brass Hats follows in the footsteps of great games such as Empire, Military Madness (Nectaris), Panzer General, and Advance Wars. "There just aren't enough games being created in this great style any more, so we thought, who better to fill this void than independent game developers?" said James Dewar, lead developer and creator of Square Earth Games.

Brass Hats contains a 28-mission campaign, where you command the Allied Forces in the Great War against the Central Army. As you progress through the campaign, the missions get more strategic and complex, and more types of units become available.

As you complete missions, you are awarded stars based on your performance, which move you up the ranks toward the ultimate rank of Brass Hat. As you move up in rank, you receive cards that give you tactical bonuses when played.

There is also a Versus mode, where you can play a single battle against the computer, another player on the same computer, or over the Internet.
The full version of the game costs $23.95 and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or higher. It is a PowerPC binary, but will also run on Intel Macs. Follow the link below to learn more about the game and download the demo.
