"After Medieval, we started brain storming about what project to tackle next. We came up with the idea of a customizable war machine robot that was stolen from the enemy as a last ditch effort to win the war against them," said Gary Toste, founder and CEO of Mississauga, Canada based Brisk Mobile Inc. "That was the start of the idea. As we started to flush things out and look around at what was out there, the thing we found was that the control mechanisms for many action games were "clunky" or simply traditional video game controls moved over to iPhone. We really wanted to come up with a control mechanism that took better advantage of the iPhone touch interface and provided a much better game experience in our opinion. That really drove the development and one of the reasons we're really excited about this game as we think we've done that."
* iPhone or iPod touch 2.2 or later
