KARLSRUHE 29/1/2014 – flaregames, a leading publisher and developer of mobile games, announced today that their long awaited mobile game Royal Revolt II: King vs. King is nearing release. The game is about to enter closed beta this week. The release date has been set as February 27, 2014 for iOS smartphones and tablets. The game is to set ship worldwide in 15 languages and will be a free download. The Android version will follow a week later, with extra content to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Google Play.

Like its predecessor, Royal Revolt II brings new momentum to the Tower Defense genre. Royal Revolt! reversed the tower defense genre by putting players in the role of the attacker instead of defender. The successor also brings a unique innovation to the genre. For the first time, players take on both roles, attacking and defending. In impressive 3D players can now set up their own castles and build extensive defenses with walls, traps and powerful towers. All this can be easily created with a few touches using the new intuitive construction mode.

In Royal Revolt II the players all over the world will fight in epic battles against each other. With the right strategy a player can break through uniquely built defenses, conquer other castles and plunder its treasures.  Rise the ranks to find out who is the greatest king of them all.

“Royal Revolt II is shaping up to become the unique strategy game we hoped it would become. We are super excited and can't wait to see the battle starting. We have taken our time to build the best possible experience for our millions of Royal Revolt fans. On top of this, we already have a long list for more content and new features to extend the whole gaming experience.“ said Pete Walentin, Managing Director of developer Keen Flare, flaregames’ Frankfurt studio.
