[prMac.com] Bellevue, Washington - Binary Banana today is proud to announce the up-and-coming release of Stealin, their new fast paced strategy game coming soon to iOS and Android devices. Called by many a combination of Qix, JezzBall and tanks, it's a new engaging game from Binary Banana studio. In Stealin, players follow the story of Sergeant Jaworski and Lieutenant Bradley, who are the last soldiers that can defeat general Stealin. Using the most advanced tank, they travel through the Stealinstan and recapture the land unlawful taken by Stealin's soldiers.
On their way, they will pass meadows, deserts, snowstorms and swamps, they will fight with various enemy types, capture enemy barracks, struggle with fuel and time limits and general Stealin itself. During the journey, player will also discover many interesting historical facts about tanks, like "who invented first tank", "why tanks are called tanks" or "what was the biggest tank ever built".
The game finishes with the final battle against general Stealin, crazy soldier that rids on the bear and has ability to retake the land player already captured. Those players who manage to complete the game, are welcome to play one bonus level but they will have to finish all levels with maximum number of stars.
The player controls a tank on the map by swiping and holding the finger on the screen. Map is divided by enemy and player land with a barbed fence. The goal is to move the tank into enemy territory and draw a line in an attempt to create a closed shape. When completed, the captured area becomes players and player is rewarded with points. To complete a level, the player must claim defined per level percentage of the playfield, usually between 80% and 90%.
Player will lose the game when enemy soldier touch the tank or uncompleted shape when drawing. The player cannot defend against the enemies and can only outmaneuver them in order to survive. Enemy soldiers can only move and bounce inside closed by barbed fence areas. Levels difficulty increases with the introduction of new enemy types, buildings, obstacles on the map and new game constraints like limited fuel and time.
A cruel revolutionist named Stealin successfully led rebellion and in just few years, on the peaceful territory that was used to be called Homeland, formed a new country, Stealinstan. The only one standing region is Whiteslope, a small land in the Western part of Homeland, famous from the strongest and toughest men who don't accept the Stealin's authority. With the last savings they smuggled the most advanced tank, which now player, as Sergeant Jaworski, will use to recapture the land and bring back the peace to the world.

Initial brainstorming and prototyping began in July 2014. In about six months, working prototype was completely redesigned due to issues with colliders. New 2D matrix approach was used instead. The last design change forced us also to build our own physic engine but at the same time let us have a full control over the game performance. Last 12 months were spent on getting the game art, social plugins and alpha/beta testing.
In December 2015 we did a soft launch of Stealin HD, version available only on iPads. We use gathered feedback to improve game controlling, levels difficulty and tutorial. Improved version will be released on Android and iOS as universal app on 5th of March. Game is created using Unity 3D and leverages plugins like Facebook SDK, Everyplay SDK, Google Play OBB Downloader and Google Play Games plugin for Unity.
Pricing and Availability:
Stealin will be priced at $2.99 (USD) and available worldwide on iTunes in the Games (Strategy, Arcade) category. There will also be an Android version available on Google Play. It will be released on 5th of March for iOS.
