People who are familiar with the Atari 2600 days will undoubtedly be excited by the news that Atari is publishing a remake of Warlords, being developed by Griptonite Games. In the summer of 2011, the game will be released on the PSN and XBLA. Included in this game is online/local 1-4 person coop, in which the players must protect their castle from the enemy. Sometimes, these enemies use dragons that disgorge fireballs. Luckily, it is possible to deflect this ammunition or fling it back at the baddies attacking you.
Not only must you defend your stronghold, but you also have to to use your troops to capture and control waypoints that will grant you power-ups and the like.
According to Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari: “Warlords infuses the arcade action genre with a bold and vibrant visual style coupled with robust strategy gameplay. It exemplifies our design goals and company strategy as we reintroduce these classic brands to a new generation of gamers.”
