AUSTIN, TEXAS - (May 21, 2010) -- True Games Interactive, an international multi-player online game developer and publisher,announced today that it has launched Mytheon: Assault of Gaia for the iPhone. The game is now available in the Apple App Store worldwide at a price of $2.99. Mytheon: Assault of Gaia is a Line Tower Defense game in which the player is challenged with protecting the Temple of Gaia from the powerful forces of Poseidon, Hades, and eventually, Zeus himself! At the end of each successful level, players will receive a new tower to help defeat the ever increasing waves of mythical foes. There are three different settings including: the Kraken: set within temple ruins, Hades: a lava filled underworld, and the Greek Parthenon. Strategy is ever-important in Assault of Gaia, as the various environments, numerous tower combinations, and unique enemy types will keep the player constantly maneuvering and managing as they strive to defend Gaia's temple from desecration and ensure humanity's freedom from the petty gods!
"There aren't many opportunities on the iPhone to battle Poseidon, Zeus, Hades and more, so the Mytheon brand is a great fit for the iPhone player," said Peter Cesario, Director of New Business and Product Development at True Games Interactive. "Even though the online game and Mytheon: Assault of Gaia aren't connected other than storyline it gives players a chance to experience the world of Mytheon in two totally different ways."
About Mytheon: Assault of Gaia
Gathering in huddled masses, the legions speak only in whispers about the wrath of the mighty gods. An utterance too loud may summon imminent suffering and devastation.or worse. The king of gods does not take kindly to mere mortals who dare to defy him, or dream of overthrowing his power-for Zeus fears no human, his fellow gods, nor any beast. Some say he fears nothing.but they are wrong. There is a fear. Buried deep beneath his unjustified rule over all beings; it is the fear of losing his omnipotence.
Gaia, mother of all earthly beings, has long been searching for a human who might triumph over the tyrant's rule. In Mytheon: Assault of Gaia she puts her faith in the player to do just that. Gaia wants Zeus to finally recognize his own humanity and justly rule with righteousness rather than suspicion.
The quest will not be easy. Before facing Zeus, the player must first overcome the challenges set forth by his brothers Poseidon and Hades. Benevolent Gaia will protect the earth with all her powers, but she cannot lend strength or skill-her only gift is the sword. The rest is up to the player.
Mytheon Assault of Gaia is a complement to the online, multiplayer Action RPG with strategic game play that is currently in open beta at www.Mytheongame.com. Developed by Petroglyph, players of Mytheon experience classic mythology come to life and challenge legendary gods
to define their own fate.
Players, or "Stonecasters," are powerful humans imbued with the ability to cast spells, summon minions, and erect structures that aid them in battle. An assortment of classes are available that approach combat differently and offer a range of unique, cinematic abilities.
