Posted in our forums over this past weekend, Warbits is an upcoming strategy title that urges humanity to settle their differences not through violence, but through combat on a virtual battlefield. Its inspiration can be clearly seen: this is an homage to Advance Wars through and through. But, it certainly doesn’t appear to be a straight up clone, and differentiates itself in at least a couple of ways. First, battles happen in real-time on the overhead map, rather than switching over to a side-by-side battle scene. Seems more streamlined, and I like that. Warbits also has a pretty unique look, which you can see accompanied by an awesome soundtrack in this trailer.
In addition to a single-player campaign, Warbits will feature both local and online multiplayer through Game Center. Multiplayer supports up to four players and can be played in teams or free for all.Warbits is a project of the two-person studio Risky Lab, and being a small operation it’s hard to peg down a specific date for when the game will be complete. But according to Risky Lab’s website, they’ll “be done real soon otherwise our wives will probably leave us." That sounds like stellar motivation to me, so keep an eye out for Warbits to hit the App Store at some point in the future at a price of $2.99, and don’t forget to jump into the discussion in our forums.
