There’s still time to sign up to defend the planet Novus, in the iPad beta for Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy. Diligently working away, the star gazers at Black Lab Games have not only released a massive update recently on Steam, they’ve also created a handy sign up form for their iPad beta.
First up, the Manta update for Star Hammer on Steam sees new four new skirmish maps, a skirmish highscore feature, tons of visual updates and balancing, and of course a brand new ship…
Sometimes you just need to zero the hostiles completely; demolition, destruction, absolute tactical oblivion. That’s where the brand new Manta-class light cruiser comes in. Four dedicated missile launch bays means the Manta can ruin your opponent’s day like nothing else in the fleet. Either let the guided payloads find four different targets, or focus fire on a single mark for scorched earth tactics.
As for the iPad beta, they have simplified the process of getting out into space with a simple online sign up form. The studio are particularly interested in sourcing local (Perth) testers; this is a great opportunity for students looking to get some testing expeience, not to mention a fun way to get your hands on the game before it hits the Perth Games Festival.
Earlier this year sawStar Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy, a WEGO space strategy game, hit the Steam and send players off to defend the planet Novus. Now the fight has spread onto the iPad, but before humanity can defeat the armada of space squids Black Lab Games needs your help to defeat bugs by means of beta testing.
The beta test is being coordinated by publisher Slitherine Ltd, so to join the fun and test both Star Hammer: VP and your skills, head on over their sign up page. You will need to create an account, but rest assured your contribution to the people of planet Novus, and the Coalition forces will be greatly appreciated!
