Santa Clara, Ca., (March, 30, 2005) - Leading video games publisher and developer, Namco Hometek Inc. today announced "Rebelstar Tactical CommandTM" for the Game Boy® Advance. A turn-based strategy and combat game with role-playing elements, "Rebelstar Tactical Command" transports players to a not-so-distant future in which Earth is ruled by an evil empire. Developed by Codo Technologies Ltd, "Rebelstar Tactical Command" is scheduled to ship in August 2005.
In "Rebelstar Tactical Command," the year is 2117, and Earth is under the control of the evil Arelian Empire. A band of rebels has risen to wage battle against the Arelians. Four distinct play modes include campaign, skirmish, hot-seat multiplayer and multiplayer link mode. In hot-seat multiplayer mode, a replay option lets players review the opponent's last turn.
The game's RPG elements allow players to develop unique characters and relationships and control individual soldiers. The game also boasts stealth skills, a variety of weapons, and destructible environments where players can strategically use the lines of sight rules to their advantage - or to their opponent's disadvantage.
"'Rebelstar Tactical Command' delivers a strategic and addictive gaming experience on the Game Boy Advance," said Jeff Lujan, Business Director, Namco Hometek Inc. "Role playing elements and a new twist on turn-based strategy bring depth and high replay value to 'Rebelstar Tactical Command.'"
