Chilean game developer Syrenaica today announces the upcoming launch of its first title, Evilot, on May 15th . A hybrid of two popular genres, Evilot is a puzzle defense game where players command the forces of Count Dolfus. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a somewhat-evil overlord who merely wants to retire in peace, but is forced to defend his treasure from the army of heroes and do-gooders determined to conquer his castle (and steal all his loot). The game will launch first on iOS for $0.99, with Android, PC, Mac, Ouya and Linux versions planned for the coming months.
Accessible and familiar, EvilotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 50 levels are set up on a grid with your forces defending individual lanes from opponents racing towards the treasure piled high behind you. However, gameplay goes beyond the traditional Ã¢â‚¬Å“set it and forget itÃ¢â‚¬Â tower defense mechanic with the addition of a puzzle-based level-up system. Place three units next to each other in a column or row and they combine to create a more powerful, leveled-up unit. Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades, or spread them out for a weaker, but wider defensive spread. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a compelling twist on tower defense that is easy to play, yet difficult to master.
Players can expect:
Challenging, fast-paced gameplay
Unique puzzle defense mechanics and level-up system
50 levels across 5 diverse territories
15 playable defender units and 5 special summons
Original orchestral soundtrack specially composed for Evilot
