After doing the rounds in soft launch and attracting positive feedback from an army of fans, base-building strategy Mad Rocket: Fog of War has debuted on mobile devices worldwide.
The game offers a novel take on the formula made popular among iOS and Android users by the likes of Clash of Clans and Forge of Empires. Building and destruction are your bread and butter but the eponymous Fog of War differentiates the game from its rivals.
Battles play out on a tile-based map and you’ll spend most of your time laying siege to enemy bases, while keeping one eye on yours. But there’s a twist: the opposition’s strongholds are completely shrouded in fog, so you’re essentially going in blind.
Although players will have powerful units at their disposal, capable of withstanding airstrikes and demolishing buildings, the lack of visibility is a variable you must take on board when drawing up your attack and defensive strategies.
Mad Rocket will satisfy your appetite for destruction, but it isn’t just about blowing things up. The base-building side of things is equally important, and players will have plenty of opportunities to put a personal twist on their fortresses.
Developed by Ratatat Studios, Mad Rocket: Fog of War is available to download from Google Play and the App Store. The studio will further improve the game post-launch and is hoping the community will play an active role by sharing user-generated tactics and content.
