DeNA Launches Strategy Game Timenauts on Mobile
DeNA has announced the launch of Timenauts on iOS and Android. The side-scrolling strategy game challenges players to restore the flow of time by traveling through multiple eras, including the Wild West, Dark Ages and distant future.
In each level of Timenauts, players are challenged to destroy the enemy’s base while protecting their own. Players can deploy troops onto the battlefield by spending the energy points which automatically recharge over time. If players allow the energy meter to fill completely, they can spend their points to upgrade the meter’s maximum capacity and increase its refill speed.
Over time, players will unlock spells which can be activated during battle. For instance, a lightning spell automatically attacks multiple enemies on the screen.
As gamers win battles, they may receive loot like gems, character DNA tokens or character upgrade items. DNA tokens are used to unlock new characters over time, while upgrade items can be spent to upgrade specific troops to make them stronger. Users can collect additional DNA tokens and upgrade items by purchasing mystery chests in the game’s store. Some chests are given away for free each day.
Outside of the game’s campaign mode, players can battle against other users in the arena.
DeNA has partnered with comedian Gabriel ‘Fluffy’ Iglesias for a limited time launch promotion within Timenauts, which adds Iglesias to the game as a premium character. Iglesias’ character will be available to purchase in the game’s store until March 21, 2016.
In a statement, Iglesias commented:
When DeNA enlisted me for Timenauts, I couldn’t have been more excited. I mean, have you seen my avatar? They even got the shirt right!
