January 20, 2005 - (Monzuno, Italy) - Winter Wolves Studio, creators of several sports games, announced today that they have released a new,
strategic shoot 'em up game called Supernova: Galactic Wars.
The game play and rules are as follows: Choose one of two sides: the evil Red Legion with their charismatic leader, Tanja, or the mystic Blue Army and their Great Council? Each side possesses 10 unique ships, for a total of 20 ships available for the player to control. Every ship has up to 3 different types of firearms for a total of 26 different weapons present in the game.
Supernova: Galactic Wars features two different types of play: Story Mode and Quickbattle. In Story Mode you'll lead your faction to the conquest of the galaxy, destroying the opposition in 10 different missions. In Quickbattle you'll be able to set up a custom match choosing from 5 different maps (each one with different playing strategies) and build your own fleet ship by ship with a limited budget.
The game itself plays like a mix of Chess and a classic arcade game. When it's your turn you can move a ship (one at a time), repair it or buy a new one. If two ships try to occupy the same place, the arcade fight begins, and you'll be able to control your ship in real-time action. In addition to fighting the enemy ship, several bonuses are present on the battlefield for the player to acquire, which adds variety to the game.
Supernova: Galactic Wars is available for both Mac and PC; the free download demo is available for everyone at www.winterwolves.com. Registration is only $19.95 USD, and may be handled online from the company's web site.
Winter Wolves Studio was founded in 2002 and is dedicated to bringing universally fun games to all types of game players. Visit www.winterwolves.com for additional information.
