Elgin, Scotland. November 29 th 2012. Battle Dungeon, the epic, 3D, turn-based, multiplayer strategy game labelled 'too hardcore for iOS', is OUT NOW on the Apple App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPad.

Battle Dungeon is a fantasy-themed, turn-based, multiplayer strategy game, created specifically to bring a challenging, in-depth PC-like experience to iOS devices.

With full 3D graphics and an original orchestral soundtrack, the game offers an exceptional experience to strategy fans worldwide.

The game has been created by strategy and role-player experts Hunted Cow, the company behind the massively popular Gothador and Fallen Sword online games, with over 4,000,000 signups worldwide.

Battle Dungeon allows players to create a party of up to 30 warriors, archers and clerics, train them, arm and equip them and send them out to fight others.

The game offers three unique character classes, nine weapon combinations, 18 different skills and over 100 different items with which to equip and upgrade party members. There are six tactical levels in which to battle and dozens of hours of intense gameplay.

Players can train and practice against AI players, or other human players, before challenging other players in ranked combat for a place on the game's global leader boards.

Andrew Mulholland, the co-founder and Managing Director of Hunted Cow, says, “Creating Battle Dungeon has taken us three years of development and a lot of research, design and play testing to create the ultimate strategy game for iOS. The recent success of XCOM on consoles illustrates that there is a demand for more hardcore strategy games in every market. So we believe this is the perfect time for Battle Dungeon on iOS and hope users will embrace a more in-depth strategy experience. We've taken everything we've learned from the success of our massively-multiplayer online games and combined that with our more recent iOS titles to create something which we genuinely believe will excite and delight hard core gamers, strategy gamers and console fans out there.”

Battle Dungeon is OUT NOW for all iOS devices. It costs [£2.99/$4.99].
