To celebrate the festive season and our major update of
Rising Empires we're cutting the price of Rising Empires Premium by
40%. For the next two weeks, Rising Empires Premium will be $1.99
only (standard price $3.49). The update on December 12th includes
new graphics and features like road building.
The Rivers and roads update allows players to connect their
cities with roads, providing faster movement for footmen and
cavalry. Rivers, on the other hand, are hard to cross but give a
large boost to the food output of the sectors where they flow. This
makes the placement of cities even more strategically important.
Another improvement is new terrain and army graphics that make the
map more intuitive.
"The Rivers and roads update marks an important turning point in
the Rising Empires universe. All important features have now been
implemented and we can start working on adding an even higher
degree of flexibility for the player to build the empire he or she
wants," say the developers.
Rising Empires is a new 4x strategy game available from Google
Play and other app stores. In its recent review, Hardcore Droid
gave it 4.8 out of the maximum 5 and concluded 'You’ll be
hard pressed to find a mobile game that tackles the subgenre with
greater success.’ Rising Empires was developed by the
independent Swedish studio Hellhound Interactive owned by the two
brothers Johan and Peter Norberg. We strive to create smart phone
games which give a deeper gaming experience.
