Today Readdle announces the upcoming launch of Cannons, a pirate-themed puzzle game, on the Apple App Store. Cannons utilizes a classic puzzle genre with addictive story driven gameplay, three action packed game modes, an innovative ship upgrade system and worldwide scoreboard.
Cannons is a story about vicious pirates, great sea battles and enormous treasures. Players take command on the ship to fight enemy captains and fortresses in a quest to obtain the gold. The battle is based on linking tiles with fuses to a burning torch thus firing on-board cannons. By firing multiple cannons at once players can earn coins that can be used to upgrade the ship's weaponry.
The game challenges players by increasing the number of shots required to win each fight as the storyline progresses. Additionally, there are three separate battle modes: the Classic Battle Mode which limits the time allotted to defeat the enemy, the Strategic Battle Mode which provides only a fixed number of torches per fight, and the Arcade Battle Mode which requires players to complete the level before new tiles fill up the screen.
"Stunning graphics, a compelling storyline, three distinct game modes, and an online scoreboard system - all essential ingredients of a really good iPhone game; however, only precisely-tuned controls and gameplay as addictive as Cannons can elevate a good game to this level of greatness. There are few truly original puzzles on the App Store that can keep people entertained for hours and there is no doubt that Cannons is certainly one of them," - said Alexander Tyagulsky, Readdle CMO.
Cannons will be available on the App Store at the beginning of August at the price of $2.99 (USD). More information about the game can be found at Readdle's web site.
