Warlords was originally released on the Atari 2600 (that’s the system your dad grew up with, kids) and so in what seems to be an ongoing series of remakes, a remake is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
“Warlords infuses the arcade action genre with a bold and vibrant visual style coupled with robust strategic gameplay,” says Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari, Inc. “It exemplifies our design goals and company strategy as we reintroduce these classic brands to a new generation of gamers.”
- Protect the stronghold! Defend your castle walls from the destruction of fast-flying fireballs with your mighty shield. Move the shield around the perimeter of your castle with precision and speed to deflect the fireballs or grab onto and charge fireballs to release even more devastating attacks back at your opponents.
- Multiple local/online game modes sweeten the quest for power and allow for cooperative and competitive battles with up to 4 players. Select the faction of your choice and engage in a number of competitive variations, including co-op siege mode, 2v2 or classic free-for-all battles.
- Rally your Troops and pit them against your foes. Your loyal posse brings a layer of depth and replayability to every battle, and can be sent off to capture control points, gather power-ups to immobilise your enemies or bolster your defenses. Manage your troops wisely to gain the battlefield advantage!
