BackgroundRobocalypse is an innovative new real-time strategy game developed specifically for the Nintendo DS. Set in a world of wise-cracking, battling robots, Robocalypse offers madcap weaponry and uproarious destruction, all embedded in a deep strategy war game. Up to 4 players can compete head to head via WI-Fi in multiplayer, or lead your army to victory in the hilarious single player storymode campaign, penned by Jay Lender (SpongeBob Squarepants) and Micah Wright. Over 50 independently AI driven units with advanced distributed pathfinding, dynamic music and 3D particle systems for stunning visual effects make Robocalypse a technological breakthrough for the Nintendo DS.
GameplayThere are exactly 17 different single-player missions for you to do and they are all constructed around things called "Action Flags". They're placed around the level where ever you choose and they will allow you to control all of your different units, such as making them walk to a specific point or helping you in battle. The AI is also very smart, with the medics knowing to stay away from battles, while some unintelligent units dive head first against a major foe. Throughout the game, there will also be control points, which allow you to increase your force, which will give you more units to help you out. Mutliplayer will also be included in this game, both locally and over Wi-Fi. You can play with four other commanders and the matches online are said to go by very quickly.
