Ironhide Game Studios, the developer behind the excellent Kingdom Rush series, is getting ready to release the much-awaited Iron Marines on September 14th, and I personally can’t wait. Iron Marines is a complex real-time strategy game that will have you completing some fun missions like hacking supercomputers, rescuing civilians, holding your ground against all odds, and much more. You’ll be controlling a (very colorful) army consisting of units such as rangers, snipers, flamethrowers, and so on. In addition to your basic units, the game will also allow you to get your hands on things like intelligent mines, turrets, napalm rockets, ricocheting blasts, and all kinds of other crazy weapons that should make for some fun tactical decisions.
The game will come with 14 campaign missions, 10 Special Operations (which have their own combat rules), bosses waiting to crush you, and an Impossible Mode that will be, well, impossible, I suppose. And—in Kingdom Rush fashion—you also have Heroes that can be trained and then assigned to lead your troops to battle. As you can see from the trailer above, the game’s art looks similar to the Kingdom Rush series (and that’s a good thing) but is even more colorful. The game will release September 14th for both iOS and Android, and it will come with a in-game gift during the first 48 hours after launch. Check out our forum thread for more.
