Kajaani, Finland – June 29th , 2012 -  Studio OnMars has launched a groundbreaking free-to-play game called Critical Strike Portable (a.k.a. CS Portable) for Android. Critical Strike Portable is a cross-platform first-person shooter MMO where players can compete equally with each other between mobile platforms and on the web.  The game’s touch controls are designed to be smooth and responsive to ensure that all the players can enjoy an equally fulfilling gaming experience on all platforms.

Critical Strike Portable was originally a project started by our young developer who wanted to pay tribute to the legendary Counter Strike v.1.6 by building a similar game from scratch. When we put the first version online, it became a viral success among fans around the world. As the number of daily users grew over 30,000, we decided to expand the project a little further.

The game is currently available free-to-play on Kongregate’s game portal (played over 2.6 million times) and for Android on Google Play Store. Critical Strike Portable’s iOS version is coming out soon.

Critical Strike Portable key features:

- Cross-platform Multiplayer (Local/Online) between players from Android, iOS and web!

- Single player: Player vs. Bots

- Smooth and responsive customizable controls

- Game Types (Classic, zombie survival, Team Death Match)

- Customizable server settings: Player HP, player speed, zombie difficulty, choose modes: matrix mode, night mode, space mode)

- Build your own maps with Unity 3D
