Paris - November, 3 - 2012

On December 13, discover the multi-player tower defense game that will blow the screen off of your smartphones and tablets: AR Defender 2.

Developed by int13, alongside publisher Bulky Pix, AR Defender 2 is an augmented reality game that plunges you into the center of a merciless battle to protect your tower from invaders!

Price: Free

Availability : iPhone, iPad, Android

Release date: December 13

Play in solo or co-op mode with four players and on multiple devices, thanks to the Wi-Fi function. Prepare to throw yourself into the battlefield!

Choose your defensive towers from one of nine available designs, and support six heroes armed to the teeth with their own unique skills. Flame-throwers, tower repair, aerial bombardment, hacking up enemy units: there’s something to fit everyone’s taste! Fight in a virtual, cartoon-like environment or make the battlefield appear in the real world!

Remember: your playground is never too big! Switch from your telephone or tablet screen to a table, your bedroom floor or your garden. There are no more limits – finally, fiction transcends reality! You can switch at anytime from augmented reality mode to in-game mode.

Thanks to this simple marker visual printed on paper, you can play wherever you want with the background of your choice! And the bigger the marker is, the higher your tower can reach for the sky!
