game release date for WiiU:
Continuation of an unusual strategy game, produced by an independent Dutch studio Ronimo Games - known especially from the popular game MOBA Awesomenauts. The first part of the game was released in 2009 on the Wii console, and a year later it was converted to PC and PlayStation 3. Sequel became an exclusive title for owners of the new generation of the Nintendo console.
The originality of Swords & Soldiers lies in the clever combination of classic side-scroll arcade with elements of RTS strategy and tower defence. The final effect is reminiscent of the early versions of the Worms series and is made with the right sense of humour. The game consists in a competition between two opponents, whose fortresses are located on the opposite edges of the board. Its aim is to conquer the enemy's castle before the same art succeeds. In order to do this, we need to develop our base and create more units, while taking care of the raw materials needed to expand. In combat we use both strong and weak points of each side, as well as spells and special abilities developed during the game.
In the second part of the game we will meet again known from the prototype of Rudobrod and his gang of vigorous Vikings. Together with them we will set off on our next adventure, which will result in new friendships as well as new and joked enemies. Contrary to the first part, which the authors of the game compared to the "party at the barbecue". - This time we are facing a much more serious task of saving the world.
Of course, Swords & Soldiers II brings much improved graphics, especially when compared to the original version from the Wii console. The whole project was realized in a characteristic, incredibly colourful, comic style. There was also an original sense of humour of the authors, also visible in the storyline and sound layers. In the game there is of course a single player mode, although the essence of the game remains the rivalry of two live opponents on a split screen.
