At each iPhone introduction, Apple would usually invite one or more game developers on stage to demonstrate titles which show off the power of its latest chips. This month’s iPhone 7 introduction was no exception. To showcase what’s possible with the new A10 Fusion chip, Apple invited This Game Studio co-founder Heather Price on stage to show off a mobile game called Oz: Broken Kingdom, which just launched in the App Store as a freemium download.
A new take on Oz, Broken Kingdom sports crisp and detailed Metal-driven graphics that take full advantage of the A10 Fusion chip, although it supports older devices as well.
It’s a turn-based role-playing game based on the legendary heroes of Oz—Tin Man, Lion and Scarecrow—and a brand new heroine named Ophelia Shen.
Check out the official launch trailer for the game.
In Broken Kingdom, you’ll evolve your heroes to “legendary levels of power” and summon their various abilities as you’re exploring the dark corners of Oz. Your ultimate goal: solve the thrilling mystery and restore the balance of magic between Good and Evil and return the kingdom to its rightful glory.
Some of the highlights include:
- Unleash unimaginable power—With the combined might of Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow, and mysterious newcomer Ophelia at your call, face the growing evil that is corrupting the source of all magic in Oz. Evolve each hero into powerful new forms, upgrade their unique abilities to devastate your enemies, and harness powerful gemstones to become a force for Good the likes the Kingdom has never known!
- Fight to save the realm—Battle hordes of fiendish foes, beastly bosses, and nightmarish minions terrorizing the once-peaceful Kingdom of Oz. Dare to journey through the sinister Munchkin countryside, the perilous halls of Glinda’s Castle, and the many shadowy lands beyond – to shine the light of Goodness before the Great Darkness engulfs the entire realm.
- Collect mighty abilities—Collect unique and powerful abilities to summon the forces of strength, nature, and magic. Level up your heroes’ abilities to battle and cripple your enemies. Prepare to unleash your might!
- Dominate opponents in the arenas of Oz—Challenge other players in real-time PVP to see who has the mightiest hero, strongest abilities, most epic battle companions, and the best strategy! Join fellow players in guilds, collect and train mighty companions, and showcase your battle prowess against others. Climb the leaderboards, earn rewards, and advance to the greatest leagues.
The game supports any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 7 or later, but it really shines in terms of graphics, details and frame rate on the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Oz: Broken Kingdom contains a bunch of optional In-App Purchases and can be downloaded at no charge from the App Store.
