[prMac.com] Beijing, China - The web-based multiplayer shooter UberStrike 4.3.11 is now available as a free app for both iPad and Android tablets.
Cmune has designed a radically different control scheme to bring its fast Quake-like gameplay to tablets. This brings true competitive PvP to touch FPS. No more thumb burn or arm fatigue- play as agile as a jungle cat!
"Chuck Norris and desktops have six degrees of freedom but current touch devices don't. The prototype control scheme we designed is as close as possible to a mouse and keyboard combination. We tested a ton of variations during tablet LAN parties and found a winner. Players loved it." said Shaun Lelacheur Sales, Co-founder of Cmune and Chief Architect of UberStrike.
Before launching on tablet, the Unity-powered UberStrike first gained a strong following on the web with over 10 million players and 1.2 million Facebook fans. It also gathered over 1 million downloads on the Mac OS App Store where it was ranked #1 game in 99 countries.
"Some tablet users are tired of cutting ropes, fruit and slinging birds. We thought they might enjoy a big shot of adrenaline. UberStrike is just that," said Ludovic Bodin, Co-founder and CEO of Cmune.
