Just perusing our forums for stuff that happened over the holidays and I come across a forum thread for Fieldrunners: Hardhat Heroes which is currently soft-launched in the Canadian App Store. I hear you saying "A new Fieldrunners game, hooray!" but hold your horses there my friend, this isn't your typical Fieldrunners game. In fact, the easiest way to describe it is it's a Clash of Clans game set in the Fieldrunners universe. Depending on how you feel about base-building, attacking/defending social strategy games like Clash of Clans, this is either great news or the worst thing to ever happen ever.
I don't really play Clash of Clans, and I love the previous Fieldrunners games, but this development actually doesn't bother me. I think the characters and settings in Fieldrunners are perfect for this sort of game, and heck, maybe it'll finally be the CoC-style game that gets me into CoC-style games. Interestingly, the developer listed in the App Store isn't Fieldrunners' Subatomic Studios, but rather Flaregames who you most likely know from the Royal Revolt! games. Also, according to the App Store Fieldrunners: Hardhat Heroes has been launched in Canada since early November, though it didn't get posted to our forums until just last week.
At any rate, it's an interesting development for the legendary Fieldrunners series and the ultra-hot social strategy game genre. If you have a Canadian App Store account, you can grab Fieldrunners: Hardhat Heroes with the link below, and check out some impressions in the forum thread. We'll let you know when we get word of a worldwide release.
