OSLO, NORWAY, JANUARY 22, 2014 – Megapop is proud to announce that Trolls vs. Vikings is ready for launch next month! The game is set to hit the App Store on February 26, 2014 in English, French, Spanish and German.  Android and Browser versions are expected to release during the spring and summer of 2014.

With Trolls vs. Vikings, Megapop has delivered a super tight tower defense experience, with astounding depth of play for a mobile game, all wrapped within a lush and wacky game world. Although a tribute to a certain Plants game, it has sought to re-innovate the beloved formula, adding a range of fresh and unique features. This includes more engagement through movable and active units, a dynamic tiles system, social features, and epic boss fights with the Nordic gods themselves such as Thor, Odin and Loki.

Trolls vs. Vikings is for both casual and hardcore players alike with difficulty modes ranging from Normal to a divinely crushing Hard. As the gamers progress into the Hard levels, all new tactics and challenges are presented for each round, effectively opening up an entirely new gameplay approach! The game boasts 30 + hours of gameplay with even more content to come in future updates, including multiplayer!

All the developers on Trolls vs Vikings have extensive experience from the games industry, and Megapop’s team has previously co-founded companies like Funcom, Artplant and Innerloop. The team have thus directed or been leads on a long range of award winning games over the last 20 years, including  Age of Conan, Anarchy Online, Dreamfall - The Longest Journey, Battlestar Galactica Online and many, many others.  The team also consists of composer Aleksander Dimitrevic, which makes one of his first forays into the games industry. He has previously composed trailer music for more than 100 Hollywood movies, including Harry Potter, Narnia, X-men, Pirates of the Caribbean, Wall-E and the Simpsons movie.
