Impossible s.r.o. is about to release the first Reiner Knizia Title on mobile. Gamers can try the game before they buy and especially, duke it out against each other in the live internet multiplayer.
"It has been announced before that we were working on bringing the Knizia Games masterpieces to mobile but up to now we have kept quiet about the strongest feature of these board game conversions. And that is the mobile internet multiplayer feature." Says impossible COO, Miklos Csemy.
"It goes without doubt that these games were designed to be played against human opponents and although we have managed to come up with a very strong AI, the game just wouldn't feel right without the ability to challenge your friends!"
Reiner Knizia's Samurai is an unique branded mobile puzzle conversion of the popular board game from Dr. Reiner Knizia. It is a work of a mastermind and challenges every player's wits to the limit. Set in the Feudal Japan, the players struggle to gain influence over dominant Japanese factions - the priests, the soldiers and the farmers by placing their spies at just the right places.
"We believe that the mobile version of the game will appeal to everyone out there. Long time fans of Dr. Knizia can now carry their favourite title around in their pockets and play it literally wherever and whenever they want to. And the game has also lots to offer to both casual and hardcore mobile gamers as it is easy to get and fun to play. Also, it is important to note that the game was designed by someone who, with a history of 300+ games, knows a thing or two about game design. The game is perfectly balanced and keeps the players thrilled up to the very last moment. This has been known to be the trademark feature of Dr. Knizia's titles."
Before the game reaches the content providers and operators, a large free beta is taking place to ensure that the game is bug free and provides a satisfactory experience on par with the original board game. The game can be downloaded for free via wap: http://play.coolspace.cz/dl.php?id=1
or via play.coolspace.cz.
"We dare all players to help us test the game and try the multiplayer feature. It is not only free, but we will also reward the most-helpful gamers."
