Digital Chocolate, the social gaming company founded by former Electronic Arts bigwig Trip Hawkins, has released its second game on the new NanoStar platform on Facebook -- a tower defense game called NanoStar Siege, which uses special purchasable characters to customize the game experience.
From the official press release:
NanoStar Siege will give users the chance to customize their own army with unique collectible NanoStar characters in an epic battle with friends. Created specifically to take full advantage of Facebook, NanoStar Siege players can attack friends' kingdoms to earn experience, bragging rights, and coins to purchase upgrades for their army and defenses. Players can command an army of swordsmen, archers and slayers during battles by using NanoStar characters to build their team.
NanoStar Siege is the first head-to-head tower defense game on Facebook. The game features innovative gameplay where each user sets up both their attacking army and defending army. Both attacking and defending armies can gain an advantage by using the special attributes connected to each NanoStar character, which turn into a unique hero or ability in-game. There are over 150 NanoStar Characters to collect and each can be used to improve a player's chances of winning. Players will need to protect their kingdom and outsmart their opponents in order to claim the honor and fame of victory.
We'll be checking out this new game over the next few days. In the meantime, give NanoStar Siege a go and let us know what you think in the comments below. Try NanoStar Siege Now >
