En Masse Entertainment was pleased to announce the release of a new real-time strategy game known as Battleplans. This title aims to blend the tactical depth of classical PC RTS titles with simple, intuitive controls that have been optimized for mobile. Battleplans is currently available to download for free on the App Store, and is planned to arrive on Google Play in the near future.
Battleplans focuses on tactical movement and the positioning of units rather than the base-building and resource grinding that so many other mobile RTS games. Players can control units with precision, even during battle.
Offensive battles and defensive planning are split into two phases of the game. In one phase, you will need to attack the “Skulls” in narrative campaign scenarios, allowing players to learn the finer points of the game’s strategic maneuvers and exciting hero-specific special abilities. You will also be matched against real-world opponents in large-scale wars where strategic prowess is the defining factor in victory.
In the defensive phase you will need to plan hero and troop positions to create sinister traps and fake-outs to protect your newly conquered territories, even if you go offline. You will also be able to study detailed replay videos of every attack on your territory in order to determine how effective your battle plans have been, as well as alter your plans to keep the enemies on their toes.
Sam Kim, CEO of En Masse Entertainment, stated, “Battleplans provides a fresh, new spin on real-time strategy games and fills a need in the marketplace. Players will find themselves immediately getting to the fun elements of an RTS with easy controls to build heroes and squads, as well as scalable resource management – all of which lends for a great experience while trying to outsmart your enemies.”
